LifeTree Media to publish John Fluevog Shoes 50th anniversary book

We’re thrilled to announce that we’re publishing a coffee table book with John Fluevog Shoes to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the iconic footwear brand! Tentatively titled FIFTY YEARS OF FLUEVOG, the book will be available on October 28, 2019.

John Fluevog and Stephen Bailey (Chief Marketing Officer) discuss the book

In this full-color, visually rich coffee table book, cult Canadian footwear designer John Fluevog (recently profiled in The NY Times) will give fans and fashionistas a behind-the-scenes look into the brand’s evolution and his own creative process. It will be simultaneously published in hardcover and ebook editions.

Echoing the eclectic style of Fluevog’s whimsical and witty catalogs over the years, the book will feature Fluevog’s own design sketches and handwritten messages, blended with stories, zine-style graphics and previously unpublished photographs from the Fluevog archives. The book will be a fascinating peek inside the colorful mind of the iconoclastic designer and a celebration of creativity and individualism, while also paying homage to the wild and beautiful John Fluevog shoes themselves.

FIFTY YEARS OF FLUEVOG will be available for purchase in major retail stores throughout North America and available to order worldwide.
