Overview

Lake Bluff, Illinois’s claim to fame is formerly being a popular summering location on the shores of Lake Michigan as well as the “most patriotic small town in America” during WWI. Now we’ve combined those two claims to fames into a handsome new penny loafer. This shoe’s distinguishing feature is no doubt its intricately woven vamp and quarter. A perfect example of the type of master craftsmanship you only get when your product is handcrafted on the shores of Lake Michigan, this detail also creates a lightweight, airy feel that makes these slip-ons great for warm weather wear. A sleeker collar and tapered waist combine to create an elongated look that highlights the round trimming on the shank and elongated toe. The tapered heel is a great fit for any type of foot, which is fitting because the richly burnished European calfskin suits just about any wardrobe. Worn sockless for a fashion forward look or in a traditional manner, the Lake Bluff is sure to enhance your personal style as well as your reputation.

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.

Our new Dark Chili and Oxblood burnished leathers can be cleaned using a damp cloth to remove dirt and any residue. Follow by using a soft cloth to apply our Allen Edmonds Saddle Soap which cleans all smooth leather shoes while restoring the leather's natural oils.

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

Reviews
Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by They look great and have fine craftmanship They do not fit properly. My foot is 11.5 B as measured in your store. The shoes were loose in the heel, would slide up and down. It took an insert to get the heel part working right, but it make to overall fit a bit tight. They are just tolerable but not comfortable. I have shoes ordered from Florsheim that fit perfectly right out of the box and a very comfortable for about 1/3 the price. I have to commend the store manager at your Boca Raton store, Luis Pla. He was very helpful and worked hard to get the shoes to fit properly. When I left the store I felt I had been well served and that he had fixed the problem. But after wearing the shoes a few times I realize that after all his effort, they are still uncomfortable. September 5, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by LAKE BLUFF WEAVE DRESS LOAFERS I wish you had my shoe style choice available in an 11C. I was forced to choose between an 11B and an 11D. I went with the 11D and I can make that size work. Otherwise the product is absolutely excellent. Best, Duke September 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product This is the first time I have purchased this model of shoe and it did not disappoint me. This shoe fit just like my other Allen Edmonds shoes that I order in size 8.5 E. I will likely buy other models of Allen Edmonds shoes in the future.. September 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Step it up As jeans play a bigger role in the business world, the shoes now make the statement. With the matching belt, these shoes are a differentiators. I receive many compliments. September 1, 2016

Answer: 
I am normally a 9.5D (All my other AE shoes). With the Lake Bluff I had to go to a 9.5E. Yes, they seemed narrower.

Answer: 
Allen Edmonds shoes are constructed on a wide variety of lasts (foot molds) and each will feature unique fit characteristics. 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 Lake Bluff is constructed on the 2042 which last is a new slip-on last inspired for a new aesthetic in our ‘refined’ dress category. It is sleeker than our traditional 606 slip-on last but with a full forepart and tapered back section to promote an enhanced fit for our slip-on styles. The Lowry Hill and the Maxfield are constructed on the 114 Last which is semi-round toe handsewn last with a slightly shorter vamp; fuller across the ball of the foot.

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. 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 Carlsbad is constructed on the 222 Last which has an elongated toe with a slightly higher instep and a more narrow fit in the forefoot creating a sleek silhouette and rounded European look. The penny strap is part of the upper as a single piece of leather.

The Lake Bluff is constructed on the 2042 last which is a new slip-on last inspired for a new aesthetic in our ‘refined’ dress category. It has a pinch penny strap, meaning the strap is a separate piece of leather. Also, the tongue has woven leather, as opposed to the Carlsbad which only has the woven leather on the vamp.
