Overview

While supplies last. Limited to the sizes and widths that are currently available online.

The Strand is Allen Edmonds CEO & President Paul Grangaard's favorite style! The relationship began in the early 1980s when, as a newly-minted banker eager for overseas experience, he had the good fortune of being transferred to Frankfurt, Germany. Given his age, inexperience and the language challenge inherent in the job, he was looking for a "credibility-enhancer" and some needed gravitas. So he bought his first pair of this distinctly American version of the classic senior executive's cap-toe brogue. When he became head of Allen Edmonds in 2008, Paul made sure they were one of the first styles reintroduced in the Timeless Classics Collection. Built on the 5-Last, these balmorals are full of personality, thanks to an array of impressive perforations plus a striking medallion on the cap toe. Perfectly complementing its design elements is this model's orderly and architectural form, which effortlessly conveys an air of achievement as well as refined elegance. This means, just as it did for Paul, that when you put on a pair of Strands, you'll elevate your game at the same time.

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 out of 5 by Ok - not worth the money though Does not fit well compared to Mcallister and Strandmoks. August 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic shape I love 65 last on which these Strands are built. These are my third 65 last AE shoes beside walnut Strand and dark brown Fifth Avenue. Merlot color is wonderful and I look forward to see the color growing old. It is a pitty AE is not sold in my country and delivery, custom duty and taxes double the shoe import price. Otherwise I would own far more AE pairs. Recrafting could be issue too. And I appreciate wonderful customer approach of AE Boca Raton manager. Thank you, Luis. July 25, 2016

Answer: 
Not sure about standard width but if you normally take a medium (D) then order an E. 65 last runs narrow.

Answer: 
If you are unaccustomed to specifying width when you order shoes, than you are likely getting D, which is standard/medium. However, if you find that your shoes are typically too loose or tight, than you should order accordingly. For instance, I was a D width for years, but have found as I've aged my feet fit better in a shoe that is just a bit wider: E.

Answer: 
The widths of Allen Edmonds shoes range from AAA, the narrowest width, to EEE, the widest width, with a D width considered medium. We highly recommend visiting 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.

Answer: 
Oxblood is redder where Merlot has more of a deep, dark purple to it. Some Oxblood shoes are darker in color than others while I find Merlot to be more consistent. For instance, my oxblood Strands are fairly dark where my Yorktown's & Steen's are much lighter. There is little difference between the Oxblood Strand and Merlot Strand but huge difference between Oxblood Strand and Oxblood Yorktown. I wish it were more consistent. I love the lighter Oxblood color.
