Last week I went to check out the Sam Edelman for American Eagle Outfitters (AEO) collection at the Union Square AEO location. Luckily, the first location I went to had a decent selection of the shoes. I know there are only certain AEO locations in the City that carry the Sam Edelman line...the ones I know of include the one listed above and the Times Square Location.
Going in with high hopes, since I am a fan of Sam Edelman shoes, I was a touch disappointed when I saw and felt the shoes. The shoes were not made of leather but rather of man made materials. On the AEO website, it's hard to tell the difference as the color andd esign of the shoes are most accurately displayed on the computer screen. Considering that the price of these shoes range from $39.50 to $59.50, I thought they would've used better materials.
Nevertheless, there were 2 pairs of shoes that I liked and would consider buying when the weather gets warmer (it's still in the 40's here)! The first pair, black crocheted ballet flats, would be perfect for a casual day in Spring. When I tried them on, they were super comfy...which is so important for a girl living in the City. I also loved the details of the crochet on the shoes, so cute!
The second pair was more representative of the signature Sam Edelman gladiator sandals. I really liked these sandals and reallllly wanted to buy them...but considering I already have a pair of gladiator sandals, I reluctantly put them down. Who knows, I might end up buying them later. Don't they look really good with my toe polish??
Have any of you bought a pair of the Sam Edelman for AEO shoes? If so, which ones did you end up getting??
