I'm assuming Allen Edmonds is talking about these kinda players as oppose to these, but I guess the shoe in question would work pretty well either way - they're just that nice. Yes, I know longwings get all the love in this little corner of the internet. Yes, we see more longwing makeups than we can shake a stick at. And yes, you probably own enough longwings to last you a lifetime. But for my money it's all about shortwings. I can't say why for sure, that's just how I feel on such matters. The new Player's Shoe from Allen Edmonds takes suede shortwings a level after next level (think Inception). They've got all the colors you could possibly want (besides green, red and some other Duckie Brown territory type ish) and a snazzy "toasted sole edge" - whoever is writing copy for AE deserves a serious raise for that one. There's sand and white suede to help you close out the summer and various darker shades to help you ring in fall. It's more than likely you're gonna want at least three of these. I know I do. Not very often do I scour the vast reaches of the internets looking for promo codes, but I'm making an exception this time around.
