Overview

Surrounded by protected forests and sweeping farmland while boasting a population of a little over 1,000, Ashton, Idaho is located in the heart of the open-spaces that signifies the American West. Suitably, the style that bears the town's name is the most spacious footwear we offer. Building this five-eyelet blucher on the 8-Last creates the shoe's extra depth, which can be increased by removing the insole. This means that the Ashton can accommodate a custom orthotic or just provide that extra space for those looking for an unrestricted fit. The raised stitching on the split-toe and vamp coupled with the pre-stitched split-reverse welt gives these shoes a fresh appearance that will be at home in a casual office environment or on the weekend with khakis or jeans. We don't care if you chose them because you need the extra room or just want it; either way we know you'll be as big a fan of the Ashton as we have always been.

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.

Reviews
Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 126 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice shoe, but uncomfortable bump on inside This would be a great pair (along with my previous purchases from Allen Edmonds), but there is a kink in the interior of one shoe that has bruised my upper inner arch area. Has the same effect with or without the orthotic soles, so I will probably send in for a replacement. The shoe runs a little larger than previous size 9's I've purchased from AE (such as Lake Forest). September 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shoe for orthotic wearers — but make sure you get the right size As someone who is forced to wear orthotic inserts but who really appreciates fine footwear, I have spent years searching for a shoe that could accommodate my needs. I thought I found when I discovered Allen Edmonds and these Ashtons. Alas, the salesman I purchased them from stubbornly insisted that I needed to buy a pair that were a size smaller than I typically wear, and then went on to talk me out of returning them, saying they just needed more time to “break in.” The only thing that broke was the skin on my toes. I’ve never posted a negative review of a product before, but that experience was quite literally so painful that I felt compelled to in this case. In May, I posted a negative review of these shoes on this website and was promptly contacted by one of Allen Edmonds' excellent customer service specialists. She asked me to send my shoes back so that the shoe experts at AE could examine them. When they did, they agreed they were too small and offered to send me a larger pair. Now that I have had a chance to wear these, I can honestly say these *are* the shoes I was looking for! If you need inserts but don't want to look like a geriatric, look no further — just make sure they fit! August 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by ORTHOTIC FRIENDLY PREMIUM FOOTWEAR These were my first pair of Allen Edmonds shoes, and I could not be happier with them! I purchased a pair in black and a pair in the burnished brown and have been wearing them on alternating days. I replaced the leather orthotic insole that is provided with the shoes with the green Superfeet insoles that I use in all of my other shoes (the deep footbed allows for a great fit with them in) and have been really happy with the results. I have very high arches and as a result, finding comfortable shoes is often difficult. With Allen Edmonds orthotic line, I feel confident in recommending them to anyone who wears orthotics and want a comfortable pair of quality footwear. Most importantly, I have never experienced better customer service than I have each and every time I have corresponded with Allen Edmonds. I had heard wonderful things about Allen Edmonds customer service, but it truly is even better than one could imagine. The customer service representatives were very knowledgeable, helpful, kind and genuinely wanted to make the customer happy. I can not say enough kind words about how excellent their customer service is. I could say that their attention to detail, quality or excellent selection of footwear made me a fan, but their extraordinary customer service has made me a lifetime customer. I challenge anyone to find a company more dedicated to ensuring absolute satisfaction than Allen Edmonds; and want to say thank you to everyone in the Allen Edmonds family that make this possible. Thank you! July 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stands the test of time. I bought a pair of these about 15 years ago and I still wear them all the time. The style and quality has held up well and I still get compliments on them. I can dress them up with a suit just as easily as a pair of khakis. I even wore them to a daytime outdoor wedding. They are comfortable and work well with my orthotics. I just get new soles and heels and they keep going and going. July 13, 2016

Specifically, I'm wondering if the soles are built to 'break in' the same way, with the footbed conforming to the shape of the foot over time. Because they use orthotics, I'm thinking, they can't be exactly the same, but maybe they are similar?

Answer: 
Yes, they are constructed the same way with our traditional foot bed in which we apply a layer of shock-absorbent cork between the insole and the outsole of our shoes. The Orthotic Collection is simply designed to have more room to accommodate an orthotic. The removable insole included is a foam cushion added for extra comfort, but can be removed to insert your own. The cork layer underneath will still act as a comfortable cradle for your whole foot and the resulting imprint will be totally unique to your foot shape.

Answer: 
We use the VIP rubber sole on the Ashton because it complements the dress look of this style while still offering more shock absorption than a standard leather sole. Vibram rubber soles have a deeper tread pattern that is typically more suitable for casual styles and boots.

I have seen a few examples of the Ashton with a semi circular indentation/mark in the area of the shoe above the cap but below the laces. The mark appears to be the leather below it. I assumed this wasn't normal but I have heard from several owners who said their shoes were like that. Is this mark in fact normal for a split toe shoe? Should there be a visible mark showing where the leather from around the shoe ends?

Answer: 
This pattern has always been like this, but It is more noticeable on lighter burnished leathers. The burnishing brings out the outline of the materials in that area of the shoe.

My AE shoes without orthotics are a perfect 12B. With an orthotic insert in a non-orthotic shoe I need a 12D to fit the orthotic. What shoe size would you recommend in the Ashton Derby? Thanks.

Answers
Answer: 
Allen Edmonds shoes are constructed on a wide variety of lasts (foot molds) and each will feature unique fit characteristics. For this reason, it is difficult to recommend a size through this channel and guarantee a proper fit because each last will fit differently based on the contours of your feet. The Ashton is constructed on the 678 Last which has a fuller fit and additional depth to accommodate your own orthotic insole.

The best way to get a proper fit with your orthotic inserts is to visit a master fitter in one of our retail stores to increase your chances of being fit correctly. However, keep in mind that 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.

Answer: 
The Ashton typically uses the 30" black dawhyde as a replacement lace. If you have a larger foot above a 120 D a 33" lace is often recommended.

Answer: 
They are still a bit narrow in the toe area, so make sure you size them accordingly. If you look at my review, you will see that my first pair were too tight (even though they were the right size according to the aalesman's ruler). Fortunately, AE agreed to exchange them for a larger pair, and I couldn't be happier.

Answer: 
The Ashton and the Benton styles are both constructed on the 678 last and as a result will have the same fit. The 678 last is modeled for the average foot but with a fuller fit and additional depth to accommodate an Allen Edmonds orthotic insole. We also recommend checking out our style made on the 511 last which is similar to the 678 last from heel to the ball of the foot, yet with a more rounded, fuller fitting toe; the 511 last styles, however, do not feature removable insoles. By selecting shoes manufactured on the same last that most resembles the contours of one’s feet, customers will achieve a superior fit. However, each style can fit differently based on individual foot shape.

The best way to get a proper fit is to visit a master fitter in one of our retail stores. We suggest ordering the size recommended by our master fitters. Keep in mind that 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 shoe in returnable condition.

All of our lasts have some degree of “swing” to the inside because feet are not entirely straight.

Thank you for your interest in Allen Edmonds.

Absolutely, the Ashton style was designed with a dressy fit in mind, but it can be paired with either a suit or with jeans or khakis; they are the perfect foundation on which to build a great outfit. This style also features our VIP rubber sole, which is the most cushioning of the rubber sole options and perfect for those who are on their feet all day.
