I don’t mean to sound shallow, but you know you have good friends when you’re out of town and you get a text back home saying, “We’re buying the new Julian Louie for Aldo shoes, do you want us to pick you up a pair?”  And then you don’t get the text until way later but then realize that it was followed by, “Nevermind, we got you some anyway.”  Mass market collaborations can be a turn off, but these are definitely a turn on.  Thanks for the shoe love, C and J.
