Shop rag: Alter gets John Fluevog shoes


Alter New York is taking me on a trip down memory lane when the shop announced that they’re carrying John Fluevog shoes. Fluevog footwear was a staple of my teenage years in the early 90’s. I soon forgot about the label, until today, when I noticed that the footwear was being carried at Alter and the Fluevog legend lives on in new shape and form- Hello old friend! My, How you’ve changed!

Of course,the label hasn’t stopped producing shoes since the 90’s,but rarely ever mentioned now these days. John Fluevog matured and updated their look for S/S 09  but still recognizably Fluevog) from those clunky, funky “House” Shoes as I used to call them back then to classic silhouettes like oxfords with a splash of modern panache.

Here’s a little background about me for Ya’, John Fluevog Inspired me to pursue a career in the footwear industry designing footwear. So thanks to them, I now my day job consist of Shoe line art, colors and materials.


Anyways, This old man is babbling on about his past when simply I just wanted to announce that Alter is now carrying John Fluevog. The first styles they’re offering is the Men’s CBC Radio, available in decadent Green leather and also in Black canvas.

Alter is located at:

109 Franklin St.
