Sounds like she's a member of The Conspicuous Consumption Club.I don't want to be a part of any club pathetic enough to want me as a member....
I remember going to my uncle's house in the late 80s / early 90s and seeing these catalogs stacked on the telephone table. Most of the guys in my family are blue collar immigrant workers who wear t-shirts, jeans, and Nikes to work, but he was a scientist/lawyer from Hawaii and I remember thinking that he was how "proper" American men dressed and acted.
How times change though. I'm in burgundy McAllisters today (I am not management) while my boss, a c-suite'er, is wearing Cole Haan Lunargrand sneakers because he doesn't think the occasion is formal enough to deploy the big guns:....his black Eccos -_-. We're both here to meet with a manufacturing exec from a client company, who showed up wearing Gucci sneakers to match her Gucci belt, Gucci bag, and Gucci watch. I don't think any of us is a member of a club, either. She seems like a regular at the Chipotle she led us to though, so that's kinda clubish maybe?
Thank you for sharing your method of removing the edge dressing.To change the edge color, here's my method:
Using an electric palm sander,
Sand 80 grit, 120 grit, 220 grit;
Shellac - brush on light coat & let dry;
Sand 220 grit;
Shellac - light coat & let dry;
Light Steel wool;
Edge dressing in desired color, coats to desired color.

It's not rocket surgery. Good luck!
Cone height is not so much. Probably AE’s flattest last. I am trying two sizes, so hopefully one will work out. My original walnut is a little tight from laces to heel.My Broadstreet update is "good news/bad news." The good news is that the shoes look terrific. A little burnishing on the toes and I hope they are all this nice. The bad news, although not unexpected, is that they are too tight and will have to go back. I shall take comfort in wearing some MacNeils.
