A really great video on AE shoes made circa 1940. I don't presume AE still makes shoes with those exact procedures anymore.
AE should definitely bring back shoe socks! By the way, can shoes really bend like that? (toward the end of the video).
That was hilarious. Xray inspection -- so 1940s! They actually did this in many shoe stores with your foot in the shoe itself. Crazy.
But I would definitely buy those rough brown shoes at about 6:40 (on the pressure lasting). AE, bring those back!
Many of the procedures are the same, there are some recent videos that show modern procedures and what seem to be many of the same machines.
