Overview

Part of the origin of the name Wilbert comes from the German word berühmt, which means famous. We have to admit we didn't know this when we named the shoe, but we feel pretty good about it considering the fact that year in and year out this model is our top-selling casual shoe. Popularity can be a hard thing to gauge, but we believe men love this five-eyelet blucher because of its robust look, thanks to the heftiness of the split reverse welt and Othello rubber outsole. That kind of strong construction makes it perfect for your weekend activities like going to ballpark or grilling in the backyard, but remember the Wilbert didn't become a bestseller by being a one-trick pony. Made on the 1-Last with handsome burnished leather and featuring contrast stitching on the overlay plug that it is sure to play up the other elements of your wardrobe, this shoe doesn't sacrifice beauty for brawn. Add in the comfortable leather wrapped PORON® cushion inner sole and we think you'll want to be a part of the crowd that the Wilbert is always pleasing.

Product Care

Bought a Yukon belt to go with the Outland brown wilbert and other than the complimentary stitching, the shades of brown aren't very well coordinated. Any other suggestions?

In the event that you no longer manufacture shoes on the above referenced lasts, which lasts do you currently manufacture that would be most similar.

The two authorized Allen Edmonds retailers in my area do not usually carry shoes in-stock in a 9.5-10.0 "B". In addition, are any of the associates at the Von Maur or Parsow retailers in my area "master fitters" ?

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. We do still manufacture shoes on the 1 or 511 last. You can search on our website via the 511 last on your filters menu while browsing for shoes. We do not currently manufacture shoes on the 0 last. The closest thing to that was the 333 last which we also are not manufacturing a style on. Any of our retail associates are trained to size customers for our footwear.

Answer: 
I would say no. The laces are terrible and never stay tied unless double knotted so they take some time to get off and put back on.

Answer: 
Yes, all Allen Edmonds shoes feature a shank-less construction, meaning our shoes do not contain a metal shank like most shoes from other brands. One major benefit of this type of construction is that Allen Edmonds shoes can pass through airport metal detectors without setting them off.

Answers
Answer: 
Both the Leather Lotion or the Premium Leather Conditioner can be used on the Wilbert style in Black Outland leather. The Premium Leather Conditioner has more conditioning elements than the Leather Lotion, including a small amount of mink oil, but either one can be used based on your desired results.

However, leather is a naturally porous material and for this reason we do not recommend using waterproofing products on fine leathers. Waterproofing will they clog the pores of the leather which will affect the quality and longevity of the shoe. 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.

I work in a restaurant and I am in search of a sharp looking shoe with moderately skid resistant soles. Are they grease resistant?

Answers
Answer: 
Skid resistant and grease resistant are two different issues. A leather sole may be behave skid resistant on a sidewalk but not on a waxed dance floor but could absorb grease in either application. These shoes have a composite rubber type sole which may be one of the reasons they are so comfortable and as a result they do not absorb grease. I would not dance in these shoes because of the soles but I think they would be great being on your feet and in a restaurant all day.

Answer: 
The Othello rubber sole used for the Wilbert style is designed mainly for added comfort and better traction than a leather sole. However, while our rubber soles are less affected by oil than a leather sole, they is not classified as oil resistant.

Answer: 
It's difficult to say how long soles last as this is highly dependent on the amount of walking each individual does as well as the terrain they walk on. Weather also plays a large part in sole longevity; rainy walking commutes are tougher on soles, for example. The Dainite sole (Clark Street) is denser but thinner than the Othello sole (Wilbert). However, in general, you should expect about the same longevity across all rubber soles.

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.
