I felt bad about pushing the pre-sale date back so many times, but the shoes had to be perfect! I would not present a product to you that was sub-standard. Through five prototypes, delays, custom-made heels, fabric testing, and all kinds of weird communication problems, I am very happy to present to you the final prototype for the new shoes.

So what now? I have approved this prototype and am now awaiting the production sample. The difference is that the prototype was a close mockup of the final, but the production sample will show the full quality and proper materials. This last shoe is what you will see when the time comes for ordering.
So bear with me just a little while longer! The pre-order will be announced on this blog, on the American Duchess Facebook page, and on Twitter (AmericanDuchess).
|Though it is pink in these photos, the shoe will come as a dyable white, able to be colored any hue.|
