The perfect shoe I am an Episcopal priest and wear black dress shoes daily. My department store shoes gave up the ghost after a few years, so I decided to invest in these Park Avenues. I went to my local store to be fitted and was well taken care of. They did not have my size and width (B) in stock, but I was delighted to get a fresh pair in the mail from Wisconsin. I am considering getting a second identical pair. They feel more comfortable every time I wear them. You will not regret this purchase! April 18, 2015
Amazing fit, look, and comfort. I purchased a pair of black Park Avenues and Bourbon Strands at the Costa Mesa Allen Edmonds store in Southern California. Alex gave me a great fit, a lot of options, and helped me narrow down my choices. I felt like I didn't need a pair of black shoes at first, but this was miles ahead of any black shoe I've worn prior. I would recommend this shoe to anyone who needs an easy choice when choosing a formal business shoe. April 16, 2015
Great product! This is my third pair of Park Avenue shoes. I also own several other styles of Allen Edmond shoes as well. The best attribute of all of the AE shoes I own is the fact that they feel fully "broken in" the very moment I put them on my feet. The comfort of these shoes is un-matched by any other brand of shoe I own. April 9, 2015
39-years and counting My father was an Allen Edmonds retailer for many years. He gave me two pairs of Park Avenues (black and tan calf) and a pair of heavy wing-tips prior to my wedding in 1975. I still have the wife and all three pairs and wear them (the shoes) regularly. They've been through the reconditioning process several times. (a huge bargain) And, I'm complimented on them regularly. The Park Avenue is the most comfortable of my five different Allen Edmonds styles, although all of them are first rate. They remain the best value dollar for dollar of any shoe made anywhere. And, with an 11 1/2 A width, they are the only company who can fit my very flat and very narrow foot. I can wear these shoes all day without concern for how they'll feel at the end of the day. They're great for trade shows where I'm on my feet for 12 hours at a time. I'm excited to see they're now available in several different colors. I recommend these shoes every opportunity I get.

I already have a basic brown and a black Park Ave. I'd like to get a lighter-colored (like an English Tan) version for dress suiting during the summer. Right now, I'm not seeing that sort of color available. I know that you offer other shoes in a light tan, but does the Park Ave. ever come in that sort of color? If so, is there an approximate time of year when it starts being offered (right now it's early April 2015)?

Answers
Answer: 
The Park Avenue style is handcrafted using traditional leather foot bed, in which we apply a layer of shock-absorbent cork between the insole and the outsole of our shoes which allows the sole to form an imprint in the cork over time. We do not build an excessive amount of arch support in our shoes because the cork layer acts as a comfortable cradle for your whole foot and the resulting imprint is totally unique to your foot shape and is part of the reason our shoes are so comfortable.

If you are a first-time Allen Edmonds customer, it is vitally important that you are fit professionally at an Allen Edmonds Retail Store or Authorized Dealer who is familiar with the sizing and fit of Allen Edmonds shoes. By doing so, you will greatly increase the chances of being fit correctly the first time. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

Answers
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?

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.

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.

Answers
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.
