I know some people on here were disappointed that their new line of casual sneakers didn't feature an all white shoe (which has been trendy/in fashion now for a few years). Well, now they do: http://www.allenedmonds.com/shoes/mens-shoes/featured-shoe-styles/classic-sneaker/SF3733.html?dwvar_SF3733_color=3733#sz=18&start=61
I mentioned a few months ago that a pair of new dark chili Daltons felt significantly looser than my other two pairs that were older. I don't know what they're doing differently but you're not the only one who experienced this.
