OPUS meets Fluevog: Cool hotels, cool shoes

OPUS Hotels and Vancouver-based John Fluevog designer shoe company have come up with a cool partnership.

The Porter Shoe
is designed exclusively for the two OPUS properties in Vancouver and Montreal. They echo the boutique hotels' cutting edge cool along with personality, flair and individuality.


John DeC. Evans, owner of OPUS Hotels, says style, design and innovation are three of his hotels' brand values and the pairing up with John Fluevog was born out of a shared creativity, imagination and originality.

The pink and black shoe is classy and well made -- but also a bit cheeky. As Fluevog said, the shoe tells guests that their stay and service will be of the highest quality, but "it's still alright to relax and have a wink of fun here and there.”

The Porter Shoe will be showcased in the lobbies of the Vancouver and Montreal hotels and worn exclusively by valets and male guest service associates. They will also be featured on the hotels’ mini bar menus, meaning you can simply add them to your stay. They're priced at $279.

The shoes will soon be available in limited numbers in all ten North American Fluevog Shoes stores - including New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, Montreal and Vancouver.
