Ash United sneaker (Nordstrom SKU 551670, dark camel suede) – Size 8US/39EU – I wear 7.5 and sometimes size up in heels. Same thing for shoes available only in whole sizes, I round up. The fit on the 39 was good. There’s mention in some online reviews about the black part of the rubber spreading or rubbing off onto the white. I agree with one reviewer that it is probably intentional. The dirtied up the shoe so it looks a little lived in. Or when perhaps when the black is added to the rubber it bleeds and they leave it that way. However, I’ve tried these on a couple of times and I think I may have gotten a used pair. Notice the very dark scuffing at the top rear of the shoe, next to my jeans. It looks like marks from a pair of jeans.
The Ash Eagle wedge sneaker is currently available at Jildor for $149.99. I bought mine for about the same price at Nordstrom (click here for more Ash). This one looks just like mine — suede, 4 buckles up the front — so I don’t know why the one from Nordstrom was called Ash United.
I might order the Ash Thelma. I have hesitations because they are full price. Heh. And in this case I’m concerned about denim transfer onto the light leather. That would make me sad. These also came in cognac brown leather, same color above as the suede and also in black leather. I would want the cognac brown leather, but that’s an old release and difficult to find. And then there’s the full price thing…just not sure I will get a low cost/wear for such a trendy pair.
