someone arrived at my blog

yesterday, having used

the search term

“Fluevog addict.”


 That seems a little harsh.



Couldn’t we just say


or “connoisseur?”


Come on now.

That’s definitely over-stating.




Did I tell you?

To celebrate my Master’s placement

I have Prepared Hi Steadies coming ?

Steady (Yellow)

Aren’t they gorgeous?

Way cheaper than a party to celebrate,

and I get to enjoy them for ages!


Rather than a single evening.

That’s not addiction.

That’s just…



Oh, and

John Fluevog thinks I’m awesome!

So there.


(Well fine, he probably thinks you’re awesome, too)





Fluevog liked this poem so much, that they sent me a mug!  Yay!  🙂  They know how to feed their addic…  >>cough<< …fans.  Many thanks to Preet at the Vancouver Granville Fluevog store, who takes good care of me, AND sends me presents!  (If you look closely, you can see that the mug says “Juan Fluevog”  I think that’s hilarious.  Vog humour.  HA!)

    Sensible shoes, and I’ve heard resistant…kinda like kick-ups

      I have clogs in this line (which are lower), and they are sooooooooooooooooo comfortable, and tall, and weird, and wonderful… Vogs are well made, their customer service is amazing, and their shoes are brilliant. 🙂

  2. Shawn, of the many things I know about you, your love of these shoes is at the very top of the list. 🙂

    • Shawn Bird Says:

      Some day I will be a Vogunteer. (That’s a shoe model-shoot for Vogs, where you submit one photo of yourself- knees and down- wearing your Vogs in interesting places for every day of the month. You need to own a month’s worth of Vogs to be eligible. I’m only 1/3 of the way there. 😉 )

      • Shawn Bird Says:

        Come to think of it, how could I be an addict with only 10 pairs? Even if I do know them all by name, and can recite same on demand. 😉

    It’s part of my culture, how could I not like them? Not that I wear them, but hey, it just wouldn’t look right on me 🙂

    I found your blog by looking up writing. 👍
