Allen Edmonds – An American Original

Allen Edmonds has been handcrafting fine welted Made in the USA shoes since 1922. Today, we continue to follow the same 212-step manufacturing process invented by Elbert W. Allen and Bill "Pops" Edmonds when they opened their first factory on the shores of Lake Michigan in Wisconsin nearly a century ago.

Through the years quality and craftsmanship have been paramount to our success. At Allen Edmonds we are proud to produce some of the finest footwear in the world and we’ve expanded our horizons to include belts, leather briefcases and bags, and versatile clothing. From classic to contemporary and dress to casual, Allen Edmonds' products are unsurpassed in quality, value and craftsmanship and reflect timeless elegance and enduring style.



Shoe size is more than length. Width is just as important. We have big, small, narrow, wide and everything in between.

The Allen Edmonds Advantage

Because we are the manufacturer, we can handcraft shoes in varying sizes. Competitive shoe companies make their shoes overseas and to keep inventory low, they make only "gut" sizes (e.g., 10-12 medium) that supposedly fit everyone. As a result, most men wear shoes that are too long for their feet as they need the room to accommodate their foot width. Men who get fitted by a Master Fitter are surprised to learn they have never worn a proper fitting shoe.

Specifically, what sets Allen Edmonds apart?

  • From size 6 to 16 and narrow AAA to wide EEE, we craft over 100 sizes of shoes.
  • Proper fit is important for durability and comfort along with foot and back health.
  • To help you get the best fit possible, visit one of our Master Fitters in our stores and they will be happy to help you try on any of our thousands of pairs in each store. We will have your size in stock to try on.
  • If you are unsatisfied with the fit of your shoes, we offer FREE Returns everyday, as long as the item is unused, on all domestic orders.

It is important to us that you get the best fit possible.



In addition to fit, our shoes are comfortable. Superior leathers allow us to use thinner leather which is more flexible, breaks in faster, and has better breathability. Our cork footbeds form to the contours of your unique foot shape in a way that other shoe maker's cheap soles cannot match.



With proper care, Allen Edmonds shoes can last for decades so you can stop buying throw-away shoes every year. Our Goodyear welted and handsewn shoes are made so well they are available for our legendary Recrafting® service where we rebuild the shoe from the bottom up to extend the life of your favorite shoes. You can read the more than 900 reviews on our Recrafting® service and see what has earned us 4.7 stars!

Some things remain timeless. That's how we feel about our traditional 212-step manufacturing process that has been the basis for handcrafting Allen Edmonds Goodyear welted shoes since 1922.



Our commitment to Allen Edmonds customers begins before our shoes are even made, thanks to the forethought we put into creating designs that will stand the test of time and our tireless efforts to use only first-class materials in our products. This dedication to excellence carries over to our stores, where the majority of our Master Fitters have over a decade of experience, making them experts when it comes to helping you find that pair of Allen Edmonds that will feel like they were tailored especially for your feet.

When all is said and done, we know our customers are the reason we've been around for so long. If you are ever unsatisfied with the fit of your shoes we offer FREE Returns, as long as the item is unused, to make it easier for you to get the right shoes for your feet.
