Overview

Why was Boulder, Colorado named the happiest place to live in the United States? Could it be because the city is surrounded by acres and acres of open spaces and situated in one of the most beautiful valleys in the Rocky Mountains? Or maybe it is just because everyone is wearing the town's namesake, incredibly comfortable moccasins from the ae by Allen Edmonds collection. This casual slip-on loafer is a joy to slide your foot in and out of, while you'll be ecstatic with the protection and traction afforded you by the unlined mudguards and the array of curved grooves on the bottom of its Blues rubber sole. Also you'll sure be glad we crafted this driving shoe with handsome design features like the two-tone leather body and contrast stitching, both of which look cool whether you are hanging out or going out. A joy to wear and look at, the Boulder will put a smile on your face no matter where you call home.

Product Care

Allen Edmonds Shoe Care

When caring for the suede-like leathers, we recommend using our Allen Edmonds Spray Waterproofer. Make sure the surface area is clean and dry. Spray evenly from a distance of 6 - 8 inches and allow to air dry before wear. Allen Edmonds Spray Waterproofer will not alter color, but it may darken the fabric initially while damp.

The leather styles can be cleaned using a damp cloth to remove dirt and any residue. Follow by using a soft cloth to apply Allen Edmonds Leather Lotion, which has been specifically formulated for this type of leather.

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

Reviews
Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 170 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable & versatile As others have said, will have issue rubbing on the heal/Achilles until they are worn in. Very light & comfortable. Time will tell how they wear, so went with 4* on Quality & Value - could increase if they wear well over a long period of time. September 19, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by wrong sizing I had previously ordered a d width shoe but they were too narrow. So I ordered the E width shoes and found they are narrow as well. I continue to wear hoping they stretch. September 18, 2016

I would consider them to be fairly lightweight. However, I use them for travel primarily because they are very comfortable and can be worn with or without socks.

Answer: 
Allen Edmonds shoes generally weigh between 3 and 4 lbs. when shipped. Shoe weight will vary depending on the size and width of a shoe; however, these variations will be fairly insignificant. Generally, driving shoes are relatively lighter than welted dress shoes.

The Boulder style was not designed with an orthotic fit in mind and therefore the insoles are not removable.

Answer: 
I use Meltonian Neutral or Delicate polish on them. It won't stain the lacing and does a nice job of keeping the leather in good shape.

Answer: 
We recommend using the Allen Edmonds Leather Lotion when caring for your Boulder driving shoes. Using a colored shoe polish or shoe cream will discolor and/or darken your shoe’s contrast stitching while our Leather Lotion is toneless in color.

These styles can be cleaned using a damp cloth to remove dirt and any residue. Rub Allen Edmonds Leather Lotion into the leather with a clean cloth; allow to dry. Reapply as necessary to maintain a protective finish.

I just received the blue leather version of the Boulder and would like to know the proper care products to use with this shoe. While it's listed as leather, it has a different feel to it than my past Boulder shoes in different colors.

Answer: 
While the Boulder in blue leather is not manufactured using suede or nubuck, it does feature leather that has been buffed and distressed to achieve a unique velvet-like surface. As such, we recommend treating this type of leather with the same care as one would exercise for a suede or nubuck shoe.

We recommend using our Allen Edmonds Spray Waterproofer when caring for this style to add some water protection. Make sure the surface area is clean and dry. Spray evenly from a distance of 6 - 8 inches and allow to air dry before wear. Allen Edmonds Spray Waterproofer will not alter color, but it may darken the fabric initially while damp.

If this item cannot be recrafted, then what will happen to those shoes whose toe robbers are separating? Apparently that's probably will happen after a year, right?!

Answer: 
I have two pairs of this shoe. The first pair I bought about four years ago. About one year ago I started to use the first pair for all of my outdoor work around the house. This shoe can take a beating under any condition and not fall apart. And, when I clean them up the shoes still look pretty good. So, I would not worry about needing to recraft them. My second pair has a easy light duty life.

Answer: 
When those happened to my first pair of these shoes, I took them back to the AE company owned store, and they replaced them on the spot. Have had the replacement pair for at least 3 years with no separation.

I really like the rubber sole for some light snow/ slippery conditions but how well does the leather hold up to these conditions? Are these only meant for dry conditions?

Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in Allen Edmonds.

The Boulder features our Blues Rubber Sole and will hold up in wet conditions better than our regular leather sole. However, although it is designed to give some traction, it is not designed for wearing in slick conditions. We recommend exercising caution when wearing this or any shoe in slippery environments. Keep in mind also that the upper is made of natural leather and so is not waterproof.

We recommend trying the Swims ‘Classic’ Overshoes which are a great way to protect your investments and allow you to wear your favorite shoes regardless of weather conditions.
