GEORGE CLINTON’S BACK IN SHOE BUSINESS

Vancouver-based shoe company Fluevog has released its third collection with music legend George Clinton. Renowned Canadian shoe designer John Fluevog has partnered up with funk music legend George Clinton to release a new limited-edition Soul Speed sneaker– the Bonneville – and they’re completely out of this world. The design features iconic spaceship patterns created by George himself against a vibrant combination of orange, purple and gold to match his exuberant style. This exciting collaboration also includes a groovy bucket hat along with a trio of out-of-this-world iron-on patches to complete any spacefaring look. You can find images of John and George and the new collection here.

Founder of Fluevog shoes, John Fluevog is very excited about his latest collaboration with George. “I’m often surprised to have friends at all, let alone famous ones like George,” John quips. “George is not only a musician, obviously, and has been all his life, he is an amazing visual artist. I’m happy to be able to celebrate his drawings and paintings through this collaboration.”

I stepped up on the platform
The man gave me the news
He said, you must be joking son
Where did you get those shoes?
– Pretzel Logic – Steely Dan

Hey, I put some new shoes on
And suddenly everything’s right
I said, hey, I put some new shoes on
And everybody’s smiling, it’s so inviting
Oh, short on money but long on time
Slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine
And I’m running late and I don’t need an excuse
‘Cause I’m wearing my brand new shoes
– New Shoes – Paolo Nutini

I wanna put on my, my, my, my, my boogie shoes
Just to boogie with you, ah-ha
– Boogie Shoes – KC and The Sunshine band

This isn’t Fluevog’s first space trip with George, in fact the Vancouver-based shoe mogul has a strong history of creative collaborations with the singer. In 2019, John and George worked together to release the Space Edition Mothership boots and joined forces again in 2021 for the Kickback Prefect shoes. The limited edition Fluevog x George Clinton collection is releasing on 1st of June as part of Fluevog’s Winter ‘24 collection in Australia. They will be available for purchase online at fluevog.com as well as at John Fluevog Shoes locations: 123 George Street in the historical Rocks precinct of Sydney, and 271 Little Collins Street in the heart of Melbourne’s famous laneways.
