A Bee Told Me That 'Miracles are Surprises of the Soul'

My favorite Canadian shoe guru John Fluevog announced today that Pennsylvanian artist Hollie Chantile's design submission to their Open Source Program was given the ultimate "John nod." It will be produced as their classic favorite Fluevog Miracle heel.

Hollie's shoe art won Grand Prize in 2001 at the OXO Gallery in Baltimore's juried exhibition. Her paintings merge the natural world complete with carnivorous plants and insects with that of the professional shoe designer. The result is just divinely what Carl Linnaeus
might have conjured up.

The strappy heels elevate into delicate swooping curves held steadfast on hand carved wooden last, the new Miracle Hollie is made in a Peruvian factory that has a reputation for outstanding quality and craftsmanship = sustainable for certain. Miracles are the surprises of the soul.

John Fluevog's Open Source Design Contest.

Go Hollie...Can't wait to wear these sweet strappy heels.
