Very Nice But Not Perfect... I'm a huge AE fan. Won't buy any other brand these days. When I read about how great shell cordovan shoes were, I looked no further than what AE had to offer. Most of the reviews here are NOT for the shell cordovan version of this model, BTW. To be sure, these, like all my other AE shoes, are super comfortable the first day you wear them. The shell cordovan leather is smooth - for the most part - and the shoe seems light and almost like going barefoot! But I think I was a little disappointed. I had heard shell cordovan needs very little polish to really shine, but right out of the box these looked like they needed a good dose of polish. The toe caps were a bit rough as well, not as smooth as the rest of the shoe. Perhaps the process of forming the toe is more difficult than with cow leather. Maybe it distresses the leather more. In any case, I've since added a nice coat of polish and they seem to have taken it well. The toe is smoother looking and after a few more wear and polish cycles, they will look great. I just had higher, perhaps unrealistic expectations. In any case, I don't regret buying them... the price was actually quite reasonable. The dark maroon/burgundy color is amazing and goes very nicely with my dark blue pinstripe suit. April 24, 2015
Thanks I have three pairs that I rotate. Best shoes I've ever worn. May 29, 2015
Great look. Great fit. Awesome quality. I bought a pair of Park Avenues online using what I thought was my size and width. I got sized and fit correctly at the San Francisco store and ordered my next pair according to the recommendations of the AE employee. The fit and comfort are spot on. I have bought an additional pair using the correct sizing and plan on purchasing additional shoes in the future. Purchased matching belts and the look is sharp. Many complements. May 29, 2015
Poor fit I have several pairs of Allen Edmond shoes. I have a grey pair of Park Avenue and a pair of Strand. The fit of both of these is perfect. I bought the black Park Avenue expecting the same fit and quality. I have been greatly disappointed. I returned the shoes a couple of weeks ago but have not heard anything back from them. All I want is a pair that fits like my other Park Avenue. May 18, 2015

I put in this question about a month ago too that my shoe was squeeky and got some good response. i wore them for almost a month and i was expecting for the squeak to go away but it has not yet. when i apply shoe cream inside on the sole area it goes away for an hour or so and then it starts squeaking again. I am not sure if i want to put wd-40 in the inside. Please help. can i bring it to a Allen Edmond store near by to have them look at it ?

Answer: 
Typically, applying leather lotion to the area where the squeak originates helps eliminate the noise immediately. If the squeaking persists, please visit an Allen Edmonds retail store or contact our online customer service team directly at eservice@allenedmonds.com or 1-877-817-7615 (Mon-Fri 7:00AM-8PM CST).

If possible, we suggest visiting our retail partners in Greece so they can assist you with a professional fitting for our shoes. You can find our retail partners in Greece by clicking the 'STORES' link at the top of our website, entering your location, and checking he box for 'Retail Partners'.

We also recommend checking out our 'Shoes 101' section at the bottom of our main webpage for more information about the fit of our shoes. You can also use our Shoe Fit Guide to find the best possible fit. 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.

Please feel free to contact our customer service team directly at eservice@allenedmonds.com or 1-877-817-7615 (Mon-Fri 7:00AM-8PM CST) if you require further assistance.

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)?

I have been afflicted with plantar fasciitis several times in my life. How is the arch support on these shoes?

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?

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)?
