Rush Street, ever changing, has remained a nightlife hub in downtown Chicago for decades. This type of reinvention keeps things fresh and that's why we apply the same notion to our shoes. Inspired by the best selling Strand, our Rush Street dresses down the uptown cap-toe balmoral design for a downtown atmosphere. By keeping the classic perfing and pinking we've underscored the shoe's sophisticated heritage, but by outfitting it in a golden brown Chromexcel® leather we've made it the perfect complement to your dark denim jeans and fitted twill pants. The finishes on the regular welt, collar and stacked heel are left natural to highlight the patina the leather will take on as it gets better with age. For comfort, the inside has a foam insole while the outside features a black Dainite rubber sole making the Rush Street the type of shoe that always stays in style no matter how much the times change.

Excellent, Well-Rounded Shoe I did a lot of research before purchasing these, so I feel out of principal I need to follow up and add to all the reviewers I read prior to purchasing. I wear slacks and a tie to work every day. I own a number of Allen Edmonds and Alden shoes already. I was going on a business trip and tried to think of the ideal shoe to allow for "dressy enough" during the day, but also "casual enough" to wear with jeans at night after work. I also wanted something comfortable since I'd be walking a lot. Bottom line, these were an exceptional choice. The balmoral lacing and 5 last give the shoe a dress shape that allows it to seamlessly blend with proper dress clothes. But the perforations and antiquing also give the shoe a casual flair that make it go great with jeans. The honey brown chromexcel color is just dark enough to work, but not too light, like natural chromexcel, which would make it too casual for business attire. The Dainite sole is a huge winner and I've since bought a couple other shoes with it since I like it so much. It does not lend itself to a pure "cushiony" feel like some of the orthotic rubber soles, but it has more cushion to it than the regular single leather soles, which makes it great for all day walking. I highly recommend these shoes. March 13, 2015
Favorite AE Shoes OK, I will admit that I am an Allen Edmonds fanboy. I own eight pairs, the majority of which are based on the 65 last (Park Avenue, Fifth Avenue, Strands, McAllister, etc.). The Rush Street model is my overall favorite AE shoe, so much so that I bought two pairs! I should also disclose that I love Horween Chromexel leather, as evidenced by my many Aero jackets made out of said leather. The Rush Street is even more comfortable than my other 65 last based models, perhaps due to the "give" of the pull-up leather. The styling, same as the Strand, is an excellent choice for business casual as well as dressing up my favorite pair of jeans. So why do I own two pairs? While I like the brown color as supplied, I also wanted a slightly darker brown color. I use the same Pecards's leather dressing on one pair as I have used on my Chromexel jackets, belts, and boots for years. It protects and softens but also darkens the leather somewhat, which was a look I desired for one of my two pairs. I only use AE's Leather Lotion on my "lighter" pair. #While the Pecard's provides more protection, I did want to maintain the lighter color#. I also couldn't decide between the supplied light brown and blue laces............ so the blue laces are on my darker pair while the lighter ones adorn the lighter leather. These shoes get the most wear of my AE collection! February 24, 2015
Timeless Style These shoes will always look good with anything you wear for years to come. Very surprised at the comfort level - some of the most comfortable shoes I've owned. Dainite sole is tough and comfortable (and looks cool). The Chromexcel is so good - definitely my favorite leather. Easy to maintain - a wet rag and condition maybe once or twice a year with AE Leather Lotion or other products made specifically for Chromexcel/oil infused leathers. I have weird feet I suppose. L is an 11 and R is about 10.5. Fairly high instep. On the fence between D and E. I wear these in a 10.5D. The 11D would have been better for my instep - but the 10.5 fits great in the ball of the foot. I used straight bar lacing and tend to wear thinner socks (though not in the photo) with these and they are perfect. The Chromexcel may be a little more forgiving as far as tightness/stiffness is concerned. Then again I wear the Kenilworth's (same last) also in a 10.5D and they fit great too. But I believe the Kenilworth is one of, if not the longest shoe AE makes. The Rush Street's fit is a little better. I digress. If I could recommend one single pair of shoes out of all of the ones I own, it would be the Rush Street. Hands down. January 23, 2015
Beautiful shoe! Bought the chromexel brown. This is a gorgeous shoe. It's very stylish and well made. I think it's easily the best looking casual shoe AE has. They took about a week and a half to break in, but now they fit great. I'd wear them everyday if I could, but rotate to treat them right. January 11, 2015

I wasn't sure because of the Dainite Sole and the Poron insole. They are extremely comfortable, I am just curious.

Answer: 
Yes, the Rush Street is handcrafted using the 360 degree Goodyear welted construction during which a cork layer is applied under the insole. The combination of the cork layer along with the Poron foam insole and shock absorbing Dainite sole is what makes this such a comfortable style!

Answer: 
The Rush Street was designed and developed with our new Dainite Sole because not only does it look great in both casual and dress casual styles, but with this durable rubber sole you get the peace of mind that comes with traction and protection in inclement weather.

Keep in mind that you can special order this style with a different sole by selecting your preferred sole under the 'Custom Sole' options.

The Clark is offered in natural and black Chromexcel. Is there going to be a future product offering with the Rush shoe with Natural & Dainite sole ( brick color) and Black & Dainite (black)?

I have in my shoe care supplies the Allen Edmonds Spray Waterproofer that specifies to waterproof & protect all types of leather. Your prior response suggests you no longer recommend waterproofing products. If this is correct, are you confirming that Allen Edmonds Spray Waterproofer is now obsolete? Also would you consider a product such as mink oil unadvisable for your leather boots & shoes? Your previous reply suggests that you regard overshoes as the only satisfactory method of protecting Allen Edmonds leather shoes & boots of any type.

Thank you for your consideration of this question.

Answer: 
We don’t recommend mink oil because the heavy oils can drastically change the color of the leather. Our Spray Waterproofer should be primarily used on suede, nubuck, and fabrics to protect against rain and stains. It is not recommended for use on cordovan, and burnished calfskins. If you are concerned about wet or snowy weather conditions when wearing fine leather shoe, we recommend using SWIMS overshoes which is a great way to protect your investments and they allow you to wear your favorite shoes regardless of weather conditions.

Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

Answer: 
Allen Edmonds shoes can be susceptible to water damage as leather is a naturally porous material. We do not recommend using waterproofing products because they clog the pores of the leather which will affect the quality and longevity of the shoe.

We recommend trying the Swims ‘Classic’ Overshoes which are a great way to protect your investments and allow you to wear your favorite shoes regardless of weather conditions.

The website photos suggest that the Olive Distressed Leather used for the Neumok is more bleached out than the Olive Distressed Leather used for the Rush Street. Are the photos accurate or, instead, is the same leather used for both shoes? If the same leather, which photo (for the Neumok or for the Rush Street) most closely reflects the actual color of these shoes?

Answer: 
The same Olive leather is used on the Rush Street and the Neumok styles. The difference is the burnishing techniques used on the Rush street which makes it considerably darker in appearance. Also keep in mind that our hand-crafting process as well as the natural properties of the leather produces a unique pair of shoes every time.

Answer: 
Yes. This uses a 360 degree goodyear welt. If it can be recrafted then that means just the sole can be easily replaced as well.
