Reviews
Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Black Overlord Another great pair of AE's. Like most, they did take a while to break in but are a perfect fit now. With the wide opening the shoe did feel like it was slipping on the heel but that has improved after the break in. August 15, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Shoe sizing is off The leather is very good quality and has a nice feel to it.However the shoes are at least one half size off. I normally wear a 10 1/2 d and in these a 10 would fit.This suprised me because other Allen Edmonds I own are true to size.Unfortunately I ordered a custom sole and cannot exchange for the right fit. Also the brown shoes I received are darker than the photos. August 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Favorite shoes ever! From the moment I put them on, they felt fantastic. They look great with jeans or casual pants. My wife loves how I look in the shoes too! July 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great comfort and style Purchased the brown Overlord as my first pair of AE shoes 6 months ago and have thoroughly enjoyed them. They break in to a soft, comfortable leather that looks and feels great. If you like a distressed look, these are definitely the shoes for you. I know I always look forward to the opportunity to wear mine! July 13, 2016

Answer: 
This is a welted style so it is constructed with the cork layer footbed that conforms to the shape of your feet. It does not have any additional cushioned insoles besides the leather insole and liner that cover the cork layer.

I'd love to have a pair of these in brown, but in all my AE shoes I wear a size 11.5B. How do these fit? Do they run narrow or wide? What is the upcharge to Oder a pair in a B width?

Answer: 
The Overlord is constructed on the 201 last which has more room for a higher instep, and has a fuller forefoot width for more comfort. It complements our iconic 65 last. For information on special orders and to find out more about our custom fees, please contact our customer assistance center directly at cacmail@allenedmonds.com or by calling 1-800-235-2348 (Mon-Fri 7:00AM-6PM CST) so they can determine if your specific request can be accomplished based on current availability of shoe materials and components

Even though the leather lotion is listed in the shoe care section for the Overlord, will the premium leather condition work well, too? What is the difference between the two? Also, do you recommend any heel and edge dressing for the shoes? If not, how should the heels and edges be cared for over time?

Answer: 
Yes, the Premium Leather Conditioner can be used for the Overlord style. This product has more conditioning and softening agents than the leather lotion. If you wish to touch up the stressed edge, you may use the Black Heel and Sole Edge Dressing for the black leather Overlord, and the Brown dressing for the brown leather version.

Is the Overlord made from genuine kudu leather (i.e., the hide of an African antelope), or is it made from treated calf or cow skin, such as the "kudu" leather produced by Horween?

Answer: 
I'd say this is a shoe well suited for wide feet. I have half a dozen pairs of AEs, all in 9D, and these fit differently from all the others. I have them laced so tightly that the tops of the uppers are meeting over the tongue, and they still feel loose to me and slip unless I wear them with extra thick socks.

Answer: 
The Overlord is constructed on the 201 Last, which is modeled after the 65 Last used on the Park Avenue or Strand. The 201 Last features an elongated look as well however, it provides more room for a higher instep and it is slightly shorter. We recommend trying what you normally wear in the 65 Last.

Keep in mind that 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. If this is not possible, 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.

I saw the q&a about high arch and instep - good info for someone like me as well. So far 31 pairs of AE in the arsenal, nothing on the 201. So - 1.) If 65 bluchers are just a little larger than I'd prefer while 65 bals are just a little snug (instep area#, how would these compare #i.e. closed lace on the 201)?

2.) I asked this question in the past, but I'll ask again. I'm a huge fan of the mini-lug sole - I have the Aberdeen, San Marco, Black Hills, Big Sur and Kiowa among others. Is the Overlord's sole the same as these? When I saw the store floor model the sole felt different, stiffer.

Thanks so much to AE - keep up the great work!

Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in Allen Edmonds.

The 201 last was designed after the 65 Last. Both lasts are similar so fit will be similar as well. To make the 201 last our design team simply took the 65 last and widened the forefoot slightly and heightened the cone. The higher cone will provide more room for a higher instep which may make it a bit easier to fit those balmoral styles in your case.

Also, the distressed leather oak sole on the Overlord is new to the Allen Edmonds line. This sole is infused with wax to provide more resistance in harsher weather, however keep in mind the shoe and sole itself are not waterproof.

Answer: 
Agree with the choice of 201 & 65, but for those on the narrower side, the 222 has been the best for high arch and instep, at least for me personally. It may be completely phased out though - I only see the shell Norwich and some of the MTO shoes like the Carlsbad still using it.

Answer: 
Thank you for your inquiry.

The best lasts to accommodate a higher arch and instep are the 65 and 201 Last.

The Overlord, constructed on the 201 last is a great choice.

With the contrast stitching on the Brown Kudo model, what steps do you recommend for shoe care? Is this a case for leather lotion, or will matching polish be OK?

Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in Allen Edmonds.

Due to the contrast stitching and Kudu leather itself, this leather should only be cared for with Leather Lotion. We do not recommend using any colored polish on Kudu leather.
