Meet John Fluevog!

The Mini Gorgeous is UBC Library’s favourite Fluevog shoe, as voted on by Library personnel in an online poll.

The David Lam Management Research Library and Canaccord Learning Commons, Rare Books and Special Collections, and the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre at UBC Library are delighted to host Vancouver shoe designer and international style icon John Fluevog for a meet and greet and book signing on Wednesday, January 8, from 12:30-2:00pm in the foyer of UBC Library’s Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, level 2.

Join us for this opportunity to welcome John home to Vancouver after a successful North American book tour, congratulate him on 50 years in the business, talk shoes, and ask him to sign your copy of Fluevog: 50 years of Unique Soles for Unique Souls. (Copies will also be available for purchase.)

You will also have a chance to visit UBC Library’s exhibition “50 Years of Sole: A History of Fluevog: Honouring a Vancouver Icon,” which highlights how John Fluevog has successfully built a business, a brand, and a community over the course of 50 years.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Rare Books and Special Collections at (604) 822-2521 or
