Vancouver-based shoe god John Fluevog wants rid of some overstock from his spring and summer lines. The best deals in the Queen West boutique come in styles that have done really well in U.S. but didn't fly with the hometown crowd. Ruth and Jimmy cowboy boots, with classic Cuban heels in black, burgundy and pearlized oyster, go for $99 (down from $285). The Granville shoe line, which was huge for spring, are being cleared for $59, down from $109 to $119. And the Money shoe, made as a fundraiser for Amnesty International, is priced at $89 (down from $165), which means that AI still gets its cut but the shoemaker doesn't see a penny profit. Through Labour Day. 242 Queen West. 416-581-1420.
