PA for cycling. Has AE gone too far? View attachment 2185631

I kind of get it. Would never in a million years wear it, but I do kind of get it. For people who wear "dress sneakers" at work and cycle to and from work, there's no need to carry a second pair of shoes and change before and after work.

Enjoying a Freeport Friday while I still can. Probably have about 2 more before these go into storage for a couple of months and shorts and boat shoes and sneakers get their days in the sun.

I wonder how big that crowd may be and are they interested at all?

Yes, they have. I got the email flyer about something in my wish list on sale. Ended up not being anything in my size so I thought I'd see what new releases AE had and I saw those things and was like "What the Fug..." At least it's better than the black and silver or walnut and red versions.

If you walk or bike to work you just carry a 2nd pair of shoes.

A few AE's, recently:

Hello friends! Happy to hear from many of you, but it may be worth clarifying that I am not just selling 12Ds. My list also includes sizes:

11.D
11.5 E
11.5 3E
one 12 C
12 E
12 3E (just off the top of my head, I know I have a GARNET shell Fifth Ave in this size, from a Canadian trunk show. I only know 3 people who have this shoe outside of Canada because it wasn't possible to get without a proxy)

Message me for an excel list!
I have to say...the rush of selling unicorns never really fades, and I am loving this lol.
Miss ya'll!

Ahh yes, the “Dress Sneaker” - the mullet of footwear.
