And this is why I only want a few pristine shoes. The best AE I ever got was doored on the first wear and ripped the top layer of leather right off the left toe. It was a Super glue job and when I wore the heels down off to goodwill they went.My self-imposed, rebrand-induced, AE hiatus lasted one year, which is surprising even to me. But I go to pick up my Midnight Navy Strands and restock on some polish, and I feel a little like Rumpelstiltskin: Among other things, apparently there is a Feather Welt, my polish is now the “Speed Polish option.” I’m actually pleasantly surprised overall. I think these feel lighter, and maybe (maybe..?) a bit less substantial than my pre-rebrand shoes. But I don’t know; I’m still processing that, and I’m sure when I read back through the thread I’ll catch up on everyone’s well-hashed thoughts.
That said, I love the Midnight Navy. Love it. Even if they did get mixed reviews at the office, no matter. Love the way these look.
(The flaw on the top of the right shoe is my fault. I am not happy about it, and was a little sick when it happened, but user error it is.
