Ventura Hwy - Handsewn Slip-on Men's Casual Shoes by Allen Edmonds

  • Rubber sole men's slip-on driving shoes
  • Beefroll handsewn with penny slot saddle
  • Lined premium leather upper
  • Dario rubber driving sole
  • Handsewn construction (learn about our 212 steps of Craftsmanship)
  • Manufactured on the Handsewn 2592 Last (learn all about lasts)
  • Made in the Dominican Republic

Just like you won't find Ventura Highway on any map, you won't find another shoe on the market like this one. That's because we've taken our modern driver design and combined it with a traditional penny loafer for a slip-on that perfectly straddles the line between contemporary style and classic refinement. This is our first driver that features a variety of colors, which not only brings a bit of diversity to your wardrobe but also serves to highlight details like the handsewn beefroll and hand-stitching on the toe. Also new is the Dario rubber driving sole which is nubbed for comfort and control whether you are behind the wheel or on foot. A new take on a well-known footwear style, this shoe is destined to be a real American classic even if its namesake road only exists in an America song.

Allen Edmonds Shoe Care

  • For the suede-like leathers on the Navy and Tan Leather styles, we recommend using our Allen Edmonds Spray Waterproofer when caring for this style. Make sure the surface area is clean and dry. Spray evenly from a distance of 6 - 8 inches and allow to air dry before wear. Allen Edmonds Spray Waterproofer will not alter color, but it may darken the fabric initially while damp.
  • Further details and videos are available on our Caring for Your Shoes page.

Poor Quality Got these shoes as replacements for El Dorados that split down the side. That was the first real quality problem I've had with Allen Edmonds shoes in 15-20 years. So I wore the Ventura Highways for about a month and today the footbed liner in the right shoe started pulling away from the bottom of the shoe, making it uncomfortable. When I took the shoe off, it pulled away even farther, making the shoe basically unwearable. These will be going back for a refund. I am really starting to question the quality of AE casual shoes. August 15, 2014
Wonderful fit, comfort, color off picture I have 8+ pairs of AE shoes. Love them. These new ones fit comfortably. Well made and pleased with them. Only issue was the tan color online looked lighter than real shoes. Wish they had been lighter color. But truly looking forward to continuing to wear these shoes. High end, driving shoes at this price is pretty great. June 22, 2014
just as perfect as I expected What can I say? As a thirty year plus fan, the shoe is as described, fits perfectly and made me smile. It was just another typical AE experience. Regarding the recrafting issue come on, it's driving shoe! It is a VERY REASONABLY PRICED driving shoe, comparable with much more expensive products. shucks, my wife didn't get a recrafting option when I gave her a Bottega Veneta purse. The purse, btw would have paid for a major addition to...well, never mind. Sorry, AE is American's finest shoe manufacturer. May 2, 2014
Light weight and comfortable This is one of those shoes you slip on at the store, and decide to buy two steps later. Very comfortable and light; a perfect combination for both driving and casual wear. April 13, 2014

Potentially a dumb question - I've got a pair of black leather Ventura Hwys. Should I worry about polish? Or should I just wipe and brush if/when they get dirty?

Thanks!

Answer: 
This is a great question; it is important to care for leather shoes properly to extend their longevity. We recommend using our Leather Lotion when caring for the Ventura Hwy style in Black leather. It can be cleaned using a damp cloth to remove dirt and any residue. Follow by using a soft cloth to apply Allen Edmonds Leather Lotion, which has been formulated to maintain the beauty and protect the surface of this type of leather.

Answer: 
The Ventura HWY is constructed on the Handsewn 2592 Last which features a fuller fitting toe and accommodates a full sock liner with a heel-to-toe padding. Handsewn styles are known to fit shorter than a dress style, however each style can fit differently based on individual foot shape.

The best way to get a proper fit is to visit a master fitter in one of our retail stores. If this is not possible, keep in mind that products purchased on allenedmonds.com may be returned at any time, as long as the item is unused and accompanied by the packing slip. Trying the shoes on a carpeted surface will help prevent scuffing on the sole and keep the shoe in returnable condition.

While the Ventura HWY is not manufactured using suede or nubuck, it does feature leather that has been buffed and distressed to achieve a unique velvet-like surface. As such, we recommend treating this type of leather with the same care as one would exercise for a suede or nubuck shoe.

We recommend using our Allen Edmonds Spray Waterproofer when caring for this style to add some water protection. Make sure the surface area is clean and dry. Spray evenly from a distance of 6 - 8 inches and allow to air dry before wear. Allen Edmonds Spray Waterproofer will not alter color, but it may darken the fabric initially while damp.

We recommend pairing your Ventura HWY style in Tan Leather with the South Fork Casual belt in Tan Leather; they are designed to coordinate and complement each other nicely.

No, the Ventura HWY style was not designed with an orthotic fit in mind and so it does not feature a removable insole. You can find the complete Allen Edmonds Orthotic Collection by clicking the following link: http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonlin...

Thank you for your interest in Allen Edmonds.

The Kenwood, the Westbrook and the Ventura HWY are all Handsewn styles. The Kenwood style is constructed on the 800-Last which is a classic Handsewn last with a semi-round toe and roomier instep. The Westbrook is constructed on our 555-Last which is a snug fit, due to a shorter forepart and rounded toe with a tighter instep. And the Ventura Hwy is constructed on our 2592 Last which features a round, fuller toe; this last also accommodates a full sock liner with a heel-to-toe padding. We suggest trying the Ventura HWY in the same size as Kenwood.

Keep in mind, each style can fit differently based on individual foot shape. The best way to get a proper fit is to visit a master fitter in one of our retail stores. If this is not possible, remember that products purchased on allenedmonds.com may be returned at any time, as long as the item is unused and accompanied by the packing slip. Trying the shoes on a carpeted surface will help prevent scuffing on the sole and keep the shoe in returnable condition.

Depending on the way the shoe fits, we may recommend trying a half size smaller or a narrower width, but the best way to get a proper fit is to visit a master fitter in one of our retail stores. If this is not possible, keep in mind that products purchased on allenedmonds.com may be returned at any time, as long as the item is unused and accompanied by the packing slip.
