Overview

This clearance shoe is a closeout style, and is therefore limited to the sizes and widths that are currently available online.

Dating back to 1181, the Rialto Bridge in Venice has been an artistic monument for nearly a millennium thanks to the refined simplicity of the structure’s columns and arches. We took these same clean lines and sleek contours into mind when we created the newest addition to our Italian Collection. Defined by its long, immaculate vamp, the Venetian loafer embodies the true essence of Continental elegance and is further highlighted by the simplicity of its single leather sole. The squarer toe is finished with a classic English moc design to add just the right touch of stylish panache that reflects on both European and American traditions. Made with soft Italian tannery calfskin that can be worn with just about anything from shorts to a suit, these slip-ons shape to your foot just as they will help you mold a personal look that spans the ages.

Product Care

Allen Edmonds Shoe Care

When caring for your calfskin, use Allen Edmonds Leather Lotion to remove surface residue and to keep leather soft and pliable. To achieve a fine luster, wipe shoes with a damp cloth and allow them to air dry at room temperature. Then, apply a coat of Allen Edmonds Premium Shoe Polish with a cloth or horsehair dauber and allow to air dry.

Further details and videos are available on our Caring for Your Shoes page.

Rated 2.5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not a good fit I have been a loyal AE customer for over 25 years. Never had an ill fitting shoe - until now. These shoes do not fit like other AE styles. Quality is sub-par. Inner leather liner has partially separated after wearing only twice. Probably can't return the pair worn, but definitely will return the unworn pair. September 19, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Another Nice Italian Loafer I bought these in brown to complement a pair of black Bergamo loafers I'd bought from AE a few years back. The Bergamo fit like a glove and was extremely comfortable right out of the box. This is due to the Italian construction which uses softer leather and thinner soles. The Rialto is nice and flexible, and similar proportion to the Bergamo, but is slightly larger. I have compensated by wearing thicker socks. Had the Rialto been the exact same size as the Bergamo, I'd have given them a 5 start rating, but I am still very happy with the Rialto. September 8, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by A solid shoe Reading the other reviews, I wanted to provide my own experience. The shoes are definitely stiffer out of the box than other Allen Edmonds that I have. They also fit a bit tighter than laced shoes but I expected this since it is a slip on. After a week of wear, the shoes are no longer nearly as stiff. The creasing is no more than other Italian loafers I have from other brands. The shoe is well made and is a nice style fit for me between dress and casual. It is dressy enough to pull off with a suit when I am traveling and casual enough for everyday. I am ordering them in black as well. August 20, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Buy with caution I purchased these loafers about 7 months ago and have been trying to love, actually just LIKE them, but I can't. When they arrived, I thought, "These are gorgeous shoes." Very beautiful in the box. But that's where this love affair ends. They are built in a way that makes them very hard to put on and take off. My wife actually has to try to yank them off my feet after each painful day of wearing them. After the first day I wore them, I kicked myself for wearing them outside and not just sending them back before I voided the warranty. Alas, an expensive lesson. Anyhow, despite my efforts to give them every effort to break in and eventually soften, they haven't changed a bit since the first day I got them. Stiff leather that barely has a crease after SEVEN MONTHS! I have several other pairs of AE shoes, and none has ever fit like these. It makes me wonder if they just slapped the AE name on another factory's shoes. They just don't fit the same, feel the same, or break in the same as the traditional AE brand. If you are deciding between the Rialto and another pair, DON'T choose the Rialto. If you like a stiff loafer that won't break in, these are definitely for you! August 14, 2016

Answer: 
Allen Edmonds shoes are constructed on a wide variety of lasts (foot molds) and each will feature unique fit characteristics. It is difficult to recommend a size through this channel and guarantee a proper fit because each last will fit differently based on the contours of your feet.

It is vitally important to visit an Allen Edmonds retail store or retail partner for a professional fitting to increase your chances of being fit correctly for each last and style. However, 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 shoes in returnable condition.
