    I went to the Mall once for fireworks. Never again.

    Wore the new Hopkinsons for about and hour yesterday, so I thought I’d bring em back today. Not a huge fan of the creases across the caps. The right one is right along that divot in the pic I posted yesterday. The shoes fit well, so it’s not that.

    I've worn them for a total of about an hour, so I haven't had a chance to gain that intel yet! :p

    I'm wrong, they do. I didn't look closely enough when I put them on, and I was going by feel.

    Footbed is the same, although a pair of Bartletts I bought from dabondo1 on ebay a long time ago was noticeably better. Perhaps the company decided a long time ago, "we're phasing these out, let's just get them out the door however we have to, with whatever we have." The lining is much better...

    Aaaaand... here they are! A couple of things struck me: 1) I’m reminded why I’m not a Park Ave fan. Not much going on here, design-wise. 2) I can see why AE is phasing these out. While the leather inside and outside on the shoe appears to be higher quality than the main line, the craftsmanship...

    I am not a fan. I like Rochester trees a lot better, because their sizing is more consistent, and they have a fuller, rounder heel. I have a couple pairs that I had AE trees in for a long time, that now appear elongated in the heel/ankle opening.

    Hot take: all IPAs taste like shit, and all the buzz around IPAs is a fad that will dissipate when people collectively realize they’ve been drinking shit.

    WEASEL ALERT Merlot Hopkinsons, 247 on the site. I figured, nice day for a drive to Tysons to meet an SA, maybe get a hookup for 20% off, or at least give somebody a little commission. I met Steve, super cool guy. Told him my reason. When he rang the shoes up, they rang at 199.99. 20% off later...

    I’ve had a couple pairs of Independence over the years, all purchased from dabondo on eBay. They are light years ahead of regular AEs (which I’m a fanboy of anyway). I’m headed to my just-reopened store to inquire about a pair today.

    I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a Wawa closing before. I’m sure they have... but it must be rare.
