This is very good to hear. I fell in love with the Strands after seeing them and reading all the incredible reviews.
To clarify, does this apply to the black and walnut equally? I assume the walnut is more natural for a casual look but I would really like to get the black ones as I already have some pretty solid brown dress shoes.
The walnut strand is more casual since it has more pop with the color. Black is a more formal color, but this shouldn't stop you from getting the color you want. Either way, I'm sure the strands will be among one of your favorite shoes like it has for many of the members on this forum.
By the way, the walnut strand is on sale right now for $229.
