So I actually had to check on this. Looks like the Dylan and the Sneaker are staying in the DR for production. Wisconsin doesn't do cupsoles or handsewns.
My fav comment on one of the FB ads for the sneakers is a person in the DR complaining that the product looks like it was produced in Puerto Rico....So I actually had to check on this.

I do not wear suits to work and either wear chino's or jeans on a daily basis, it's rare for me to even put some type of creased slacks on or tuck my shirt in. For my more relaxed work wear I see these shoes working very well, and they possibly could be more comfortable than my Strandmok's. I'm not saying I'm rushing out to buy a pair, but I do believe there is a market for them.AE is really going to destroy their classics if they continue down this casual shoe route. It's like they are just taking the uppers of their dress shoes and throwing them on a cheaper sole. How does that not destroy the brand over time? Your dress shoes are going to look like casual shoes to an uncritical eye. This is the type of stuff you see on Alibaba or knock off brands in ROSS stores.

I would bet not much. Spoke with my cobbler when I dropped off a pair to be recrafted. He said that he has been replacing cup soles for years.My fav comment on one of the FB ads for the sneakers is a person in the DR complaining that the product looks like it was produced in Puerto Rico....
Are the cup soles hand sewn on? Can you get more information about the process? Specifically, I'd like to know how these are different from the other sneakers AE makes with cup soles. What did AE do differently to make these recraftable?
The light colored natty CXL does not stay light for long. My natty Higgies turned a beautiful mid brown with reddish tones with brushing. Almost like a ravelloSo my understanding is that while one version of natty cxl was discontinued by Horween, this is essentially the replacement. It's a water resistant version and slightly darker but still looks amazing. I'm super excited about this. I missed natural cxl a lot.
Those turned out great!
And so did those! Regret missing the Shaved8
