Greetings everyone. My first post here, and it is a quick question. I am just getting a walnut mcalister, and I've been told that AE's own walnut polish is a little darker than the walnut color of the shoe, and that if I want to preserve the shoe color in the long run, I should go for a lighter or neutral polish! While I don't necessarily agree with all that above, I do like to go with the conventional wisdom of buying polish that is half a shade lighter than the shoe. In any case, I have been looking at pictures online and it seems to me like AE's brandy is like a 1/4 shade lighter than the walnut and might just be perfect. Can anyone who owns shoes in both colors (or has personally compared the two colors in the past side by side) comment on the color difference between brandy and walnut in the AE lineup? Thanks!
