Great looking comfortable shoe I love my Park Avenues with a suit and will wear nothing else. I am up to three different shades. They are great looking, comfortable and built to last. I do recommend visiting an acutal AE store if you are buying your first pair. They will have all options on hand and really understand the sizing of their shoes for a perfect fit. I wear a smaller length in the Park Avenues than I do my other shoes. April 16, 2014
<6 months and already have a hole in the sole Frankly, my experience with AE has been disappointing. The leather is of great quality, and they look fantastic, but after spending hundreds of dollars on a pair of shoes as a student, I didn't expect a hole in the sole after less than 6 months of ownership. But that's what I have, a giant hole in the sole of a shoe with apparently the world's thinnest leather. Compared to other brands that I have worn more frequently and several years longer with no need to resole, my experience with AE has been disappointing for this issue alone. April 8, 2014
Built to Last It finally happened. My beloved Park Avenues that I bought as a college student in the late 90s finally gave up the ghost. I owned the pair for more than fifteen years and subjected them to all kinds of weather conditions, but kept them in cedar shoe trees and polished them weekly. The quality was fantastic and I always got complements on the shoes. I had the heels and soles replaced 4 times during that time, and every single time it was like I received back a brand new pair of shoes, albeit ones that were broken in and contoured to my foot. I'll certainly miss this pair. However, I walked into my local Allen Edmonds shop this week and purchased a new pair of black Park Avenues sight unseen. I don't know how many companies can boast of producing such a consistent and quality product for so long that the customer can buy their product without even trying them on or questioning the craftsmanship. Buy this shoe. Buy a couple pairs. In different shades. You'll love them. April 8, 2014
A great looking shoes. A bit disappointed. I purchased these shoes about a month back. I was extremely excited to wear them the first time yesterday because I was waiting for a nice spring day to finally show them off to the world and not have to worry about all of the salt from the brutal 2014 Philadelphia winter. And here is where my excitement began to fade. After day ONE of wearing my AE Park Ave to the office I've noticed two things that have been commented in previous reviews that worry me. My left shoe appears to begin splitting at the front of the sole and the right has begun creasing at the cap-toe. Now I would have though this to be simply due to the shoe breaking in but it's has occurred to other in the past as well, which concerns me. I purchase all the care products with full intentions of maintaining the shoe as per AE instructions. I've purchased a pair of unworn McCallister (as of 4/2), planning on getting a third pair, but now I'm questioning the quality of shoe and AE QC. I'll be providing an update in a few months on how my Park Ave are holding up. Like I said, I'm hoping they're just breaking in and the issue isn't going to exacerbate moving forward. April 2, 2014

I have wide feet, which tends to be a problem in the toe area, but I love the Park Ave style. What other models would you recommend with a similar look, but more amenable to wider feet?

Thank you for your interest in Allen Edmonds.

We recommend checking out the Benton or the Leeds styles. The Benton is manufactured on the 8-678 Last and designed with a fuller fit; and the Leeds is constructed on the 1-511 Last which is best fit for the average foot but features a fuller fitting toe. Keep in mind that 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, 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.

The Park Avenue is manufactured with our traditional leather foot bed, where we apply a layer of shock-absorbent cork between the insole and the outsole of our shoes; this allows the sole to form an imprint in the cork over time, which acts as a comfortable cradle for your whole foot.

I picked up a pair of Strands at Brooks Brothers over a year ago. Are they built on the same #5 last as your Park Avenues?

Yes, the Strand and the Park Avenue are both made on the 5-Last (65) which is the longest in length of all of our lasts and best for a long, narrow foot.

The color on the Park Avenue says it is a "DARK Brown Burnished Calf" and the Fifth Avenue says it is "Brown Burnished Calf."

I'm wondering how much darker the Park Avenue's are?

Thank you for your interest in Allen Edmonds.

While we have used descriptive names for each of our leathers, other styles have been simplified. Both the Park Avenue in Dark Brown and the Fifth Avenue in Brown are manufactured using the same color of calfskin leather; there is no tone difference.

Do the rubber heels outlast the leather heels?

Where I live, the sidewalks are made of stone, and I am concerned that the heels and soles may wear out prematurely. Which ones would be best for me?

Yes, a rubber heel lift is generally more durable and has a longer lifespan than a leather heel, and so it should hold up better on irregular surfaces. The rubber heel also features a softer a material, which better absorbs impact and also helps provide more traction.

The Park Avenue features a standard single oak leather sole, while the Park Avenue with Combination Tap Sole features a leather and rubber sole. The main functionality of this type of sole is to provide traction, but it also holds up in wet conditions better than an all leather sole due to its rubber/leather combination.

This model has a 65 last which has a small instep. The lacing does not closed on my feet (Closed lacing) to fit just like the picture. The 65 last looks like an open lacing to me with 7-E size.

Can you make one with 108 last?

Thank you for your interest in Allen Edmonds.

We do not currently offer the ability to order a shoe style on a different last than what it is originally manufactured on. The Park Avenue is manufactured on the 5-Last (65) which is the longest in length of our lasts and fits best on a long, narrow foot. Based on your information, it’s possible that a wider width may be a better fit.

We recommend visiting 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.
