Question for you guys: I was showing my wife the Strands as my next shoe purchase and her opinion was that it was a shoe that will go out of style.
Is the Strand a "now style" or do you think it will last the test of time. I don't want to buy a shoe that will be out of style in a few years.
Personally, I think she doesn't like shoes with any perforations in general so she may be biased.
The Strand is a part of Allen Edmonds "Timeless Classics" collection and I believe that is for a good reason. Walnut Calf as a preference may go out of style, but probably not anytime soon.
It may be a little bit of bias influencing that statement. :-)
