Fell apart the first time worn On the day I first wore these there was a light rain and the pavement was wet. By late afternoon the heel had come apart. They are now being repaired for $60. March 14, 2015
Classic Style and Color I've been considering this purchase for a while, and seeing the Oxblood color option nudged me off the fence. I don't regret my decision. These are very stylish and versatile with a range of wardrobe options and colors. However, I will draw the line at wearing them with jeans. I am still breaking them in so the comfort rating suffers a little at this point. One quibble: The eyelet holes were misaligned and I had some trouble getting the laces through. I consider this an anomaly when weighed against my other experiences with AE shoes. March 7, 2015
Quality shoe I have been buying this model from AE for many years. I have noticed that recent purchases do not take a shine as well as they did several years ago. Not sure why as I use the same polish. The calfskin liner squeaked when I first got the shoes, however a little foot powder stopped that. March 1, 2015
handsome looking shoe. looks rich even in the box. Impressed when i opened the box cover and saw my shoes in a great color of my choosing. I compared my latest purchase to AE shoes purchased in the late 1980's, and I see the same quality that has made AE a great company. March 1, 2015

Answer: 
If the shoe is listed on the website as an option from the drop down boxes it can be returned. If the page states that the shoe needs to be handcrafted for you it simply means that it is currently not in-stock and will estimate the manufacturing time. Shoes ordered through our ‘Custom Configurator’ or other special makeup shoes (e.g. selecting a ‘Custom Sole’) cannot be canceled and are considered non-returnable.

I bought a pair last week, it came on saturday and fit really and they look phenomenal. i really like them. it was squeaking a little when i first wore them Monday to work and thought that it would go away by the end of the day but it did not. It is pretty loud and annoying. Does this go away by itself in few wears ? Or is there a way to make it quiet?

Answer: 
You can apply a little bit of WD-40 on a cloth and rub the forefoot sole with it and it will solve your problem permanently. Once the finish is worn off the sole it will not squeek again...

Answer: 
Squeaking sometimes occurs on new shoes because Allen Edmonds uses authentic leathers such as calf skin. When two pieces of new leather rub against each other, such as the leather lining, upper leather and /or tongue leathers, a slight squeaking may occur. The fix is usually quite simple; general wear will eliminate the noise or you can apply leather lotion as a lubricant. Lotion can be found at AllenEdmonds.com, most shoe shine stands or simply visit an Allen Edmonds store and have a store associate apply the lotion for you.

Importantly, if you have any further concerns or needs please contact our customer assistance center at 877-817-7615.

I have several pairs of Park Avenues. One is cap-toe and two are shell cordovan. Generally speaking, assuming I wear one pair of shoes three days a week to work (I work in an office), how long can I expect the soles to last? How do I know when it is time to get the sole re-crafted? Any advice on when general scuffing crosses the line to needing a new sole?

Answer: 
I have six pair that I have rotated for the past ten years... Depending upon how hard you walk, supinate/pronate etc. You will have to have the heel replaced occasionally, but of the six pair, I have had to have the sole replaced on only one, my black pair, because they get allot more wear then the rest of the bunch... I would say that the minimum would be five years of everyday use before resoling is necessary...

Answer: 
We cannot provide an accurate answer because the wear and tear on soles is highly dependent upon several factors, including but not limited to the amount of walking one does, the weight of a person and their gait, the terrain they walk on, weather conditions, as well as how well one cares or their shoes. Leather soles can last several months while other times they can last several years. It’s important to rotate your shoes and store them in cedar shoe trees to increase their longevity. We recommend sending your shoes in for Recrafting as soon as a cavity starts developing on the bottom of the sole.

Perhaps a bit of a sacrilegious question here, but is it possible to make the Park Avenue (or something similar) in a non-leather material (for those who prefer vegan-friendly shoes)?

Answer: 
The Park Avenue Cap-toe Oxfords is built on the longest in length of all of our lasts; best for a long, narrow look; and often the best fit for those with high arches. The Park Avenue Cap-toe Oxfords have a longer toe box where the Leeds has a more rounded, fuller fitting toe box.

Typically the same size and last can be ordered in all of our shoes. 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.

I bought a pair of Park Aves. I was initially sized at 10D. I wore them for a few days, but they were so tight that I could only wear them for a couple hours at a time. (even if I was seated)

I took them back, and they put me into a 9.5EEE. They feel a little sloppy in the heel and through the arch of my foot. Also, when standing still, the top of my foot does not come into contact with the shoe. With each step however, the shoe rubs on the top of my foot where it creases, forming a blister each time I wear them. The blisters are located between the first and second knuckle on each big toe. I brought them back to the store, and they put some leather softener on the crease. It hasn't helped yet.

Is this a sizing issue? I've worn the shoes about 5 times.

Answer: 
Allen Edmonds shoes are manufactured on a wide variety of different lasts. Lasts are foot-shaped forms that provide shoemakers with the basis for building a shoe. Lasts enable us to accommodate most foot shapes, and as a result each last will provide a different fit. By selecting shoes manufactured on the last that most resembles the contours of your feet, you will achieve a superior fit, only enhancing the comfort of your shoes. Allen Edmonds shoes are known to be very comfortable as long as you are fitted for the proper last in the proper size and width. If the shoe is uncomfortable after trying several sizes this particular last may not be the best last for the shape of your feet.

Please contact our customer assistance center directly at cacmail@allenedmonds.com or 1-800-235-2348 (Mon-Fri 7:00AM-6PM CST) to talk about the fit problems you have described in hopes of finding you the perfect fit!

Answer: 
At this time we offer the Sheridan style in Oxblood, and we recommend the Manistee and the Poplar belts in Merlot as they coordinate well with the Oxblood styles.

However, we do have plans to introduce a new belt, similar to the Manistee, in several colors including Oxblood for our Spring Collection.

I recently bought a pair of Park Avenues in black custom calf and have worn them 4 times now. These shoes have a very loud creaky sound as I walk. The sound is clearly coming from the area where the tongue is stitched at the bottom, and it has not quieted down. I have two other pairs of balmorals that do not do this (McAllister and Weybridge). They are both a couple of years old now and the leather is much softer than the new Park Avenues, but I do not remember them ever making loud creaking sounds when they were new. Is this normal for the Park Avenue?

Answers
Answer: 
We are sorry to hear about the squeaking noise with your Park Avenues. It is somewhat normal for new leather to squeak, and it is generally caused by the grain side of leather rubbing on another grain side. Many times it comes from under the blucher area of the shoe. A good polishing and conditioner under this area usually will quell the noise permanently. If you continue to experience this issue, please contact us directly at eservice@allenedmonds.com or 1-877-817-7615 (Mon-Fri 7:00AM-8PM CST) .
