Hi I have an opportunity to purchase a speedy empreinte made in France from 2012 that is like new, no visible wear. I've read that the speedy's from 2013 and 2014 had problems with melting. Does anyone know if speedy's from 2012 had the same issue? TIA!

Empreinte from 2012 has been known for cracking. They changed the glazing from prior up to 2012 due to being to hard and cracking. Then to correct the glazing in 2013 they made it where it was to soft and began melting on people.

I had I lumineous from 2012 that the glazing cracked everywhere. However I have a speedy empreinte from 2012 which I still have, that just barely has a couple tiny cracks. I'm keeping a watch on it, but thankfully the speedy has held up and I have used her a lot since I got her. Hope that helps :smile:

Yes thank you so very much for responding!
I've been looking at the 2012 and also at a preloved 2014 but was worried about the 2014 melting.
Hadn't seen anything about 2012. Thank you so very much for helping me. I can only buy one speedy and didn't want to be worried about it. May wait for a newer pre-loved maybe 2016 if I can find one or see if I can talk myself into a new 2017.

Your welcome! I forgot to mention I did have a speedy also from 2013 that ended up melting everywhere to. Luckily I was able to exchange it for something else. I keep looking at the new redesigned speedy's because I like that the newer speedy's have a lot bigger handles and a longer strap that's in two sections, instead of three sections like the older ones. Just some other things to consider. Good luck;)

You're the first to say they liked the nm speedy 2pc strap. I ordered the new 25 in noir, it will be delivered Tuesday and I'm a bit apprehensive of the long strap because I'm a shortie. Lol
