John Fluevog is a Vancouver-based brand known for what Fluevog calls, “the World’s most distinctive shoe”. While he does sell some shoes that are similar to Doc Marten’s, his truly amazing shoes are some of his women’s heels (in my opinion, anyways). I’ve always thought it was a fairly well known brand as they have stores in major cities all over North America.
Though your Fluevogs look like Doc Marten’s, I wouldn’t say the two brands are similar at all. Fluevogs are more about distinct, quirky fashion and Doc Marten still retains their roots as work boots.
Sort of on topic: This company is like Doc Martens but even better. I believe someone involved in making the original docs started this company.
