Our Pinterest followers love it when we Pin images of FLY London shoes, boots and sandals.  It’s no surprise these are such visually captivating shoes; the company’s website says “‘Always progressive, Never conventional’ are the key statements that inspire everyone associated with the project.”  FLY London was created in the UK in 1994 and from the beginning, their design philosophy has been to create original fashion products using traditional techniques in an unexpected way.  So FLY London footwear tends to brim over with originality.

But if you’ve followed the Barking Dog any time at all, you know shoes have to be more than great looking and unique to meet our standards.  Comfort is key, and we’re happy that FLY London shoes come through on this requirement.   The FLY London sandals and shoes we’ve tried have buttery soft leather uppers for comfort over hammertoes, bunions and other lumpy, bumpy foot issues.

The molded wedge heels are shock-absorbent and give height with stability, a platform offsets the heel so the shoe doesn’t feel as high as it is, and the rubber traction outsole keeps you from slipping.  Velcro closures are perfect for women who dislike fussing with buckles.  (A lot of function is packed into these fashionable shoes!)  We particularly noticed how flattering they are on the foot.

FLY London sandals, shoes and boots are available in a great variety of styles, colors and materials, so it’s easy to find one that fits your unique personality.   These photos feature us in the closed-toe FLY London Yaz, and the peep-toe ankle strap FLY London Yala.  We think FLY London shoes would best fit a narrow to medium width foot, and they seem to run true to size.  Find the full line of FLY London footwear at Zappos, Nordstrom, and Amazon.

    I have at least 10 pairs of Fly London shoes and definitely recommend them for stylish comfort.

    Fly London shoes are fantastic with my severe metatarsalgia. Their less-funky shoes are great for work, too. FYI, you can often find end of season deals on them on Zulily.

    I’ve had the Yip for a couple years. Not too high, comfortable and stable. Go with so much when the weather cools. Lovely soft leather.

    I have a pair, but I don’t think I’ll buy another one. As you aptly wrote, this brand works best on narrow to medium-width feet. I bought mine last year, and I have wider feet. The toe box is too tight on my right foot. Such a shame, as I really like the styles.

    I have a three year old pair of black Fly London oxfords (similar to Yellow Yumi683) They’re cute—they have that “funky old lady” look and they look terrific with skinny jeans. The leather is soft, they have a fabric lining and a platform/wedge heel. They are stable and comfortable; if this makes sense, they look funkier & higher than they feel. The toe box is comfortable, they accommodate my bunion.
    They seem like a good option for wider feet.

    I bought a pair for traveling – love the funky look, wedge etc.. However, does anyone have a problem wearing them when the weather is really warm? I love the comfort initially, but the balls of my feet feels like they are blistering when I walk in them in very warm climates?

  7. Disgusted at fashion facism says:

    I am so , so disappointed that companies such as Fly London etc, do not acknowledge that feet come in width beyond medium. They would be making money hand over fist if they had wide, extra wide, etc sizes, as these shoes are more stabilizing than the usual fare. I believe their refusal to do so is linked to fat phobia. Britain is severely fat phobic, for one thing, and I think it impacts their view on making wider sizes. They do not want their brand worn by fat people. It’s discrimination against human being, full stop, and it has got to end.
