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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by I Love This Shoe! The is a great loafer. The fit and finish are about perfect for me. I enjoy wearing it with my business casual attire and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a business casual or dress loafer. July 15, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quite comfortable and excellent customer service. I have wide feet and unlike many manufacturers of quality shoes, AE produces shoes in various widths. Shoes in EEE provide the best fit and most comfort. I contacted my local AE store in Boston to take advantage of the discount on a pair of Lake Forest loafers, 9 EEE. Within a couple weeks my shoe arrived and it seemed to fit well when I tried it on at the store. After a week and several tryons of the shoe at home, I returned it for a 9E because of my concern for the shoe stretching and the fit being too loose. Without any hassle a replacement was procured and I was very satisfied with the fit. What made this purchase so satisfying was not that I snagged a great shoe at a great price, it was customer service. When I arrived at the store for the initial purchase, I had arrived at closing time. The salesperson was wrapping up with her last customer and could have easily told me that the store was closed. Instead, I was waited on. I knew that the salesperson had inconvenience herself to attend to me. I was so impressed that I had to let her manager know that, in my opinion, she had gone above and beyond what was expected. More salespersons should be like that. July 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Look's and feels great I am a flight attendant. I spend a lot of long hours on my feet. These are my first pair of loafers and I am very surprised. They are very functional and they look really good. This is my second pair of Allen Edmonds. I couldn't be happier. July 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I can't put my finger on it I really don't know what it is about these shoes that I like, but I really like them. I am not normally a dress loafer type of guy but I think Allen Edmonds has enhanced the look of these shoes with the stitching on the top. The leather is very similar to other high end Allen Edmonds dress shoes. This is a nice look. I had a bit of an issue trying the find the right fit. The toe box was a bit small so it's a good thing Allen Edmonds has many lengths and widths to choose from. If I have to wear a dress loafer this is the one! July 2, 2016

Answer: 
To directly answer your question, the Lake Forest, hands down. But just wanted to add - VERY different fits on these. The Randolph is sort of wide-ish overall but for someone with high arches, the fit is dominated by the low vamp (as described on the lasts page). The Lake Forest is sort of roomy up front in the toe box but the heel is ultra narrow, like you almost have to pry them on. Both are must-try, and my guess is that the better you fit one, the worse you'll fit the other. Hope that helps!

Answer: 
The Randolph is constructed on the 79 last which has a lower, shorter vamp design creating a low fit across the top of the foot. It has a full penny strap that runs to the quarters (sides) of the shoe and pin tuck stitch in the foxing (heel area). The Lake Forest is constructed on the 2042 last which is our newest slip-on last inspired for a new aesthetic in our ‘refined’ dress category. By looking at the top views of each style you can see that the Lake Forest has a sleeker look than out traditional slip on lasts.

I noticed the Lake Forest is built on the 2042 last. I didn't see a description for this last on the All About Lasts page. Could you talk more about this last, please? Thank you!

Answer: 
The 2042 is a new slip-on last that has a sleeker aesthetic than a traditional 606 slip-on last, meaning is it slightly narrower and has a more chiseled look.

The shoes have their own inserts. Based on my foot, another insert will not fit

Answer: 
The Lake Forest penny loafer was not designed with an orthotic fit in mind and therefore doesn’t not accommodate removable orthotics. This style is constructed on our new 2042 slip-on Last which has a sleeker aesthetic than a traditional 606 slip-on last, meaning is it slightly narrower and has a more chiseled look. However, if the shoes fit large enough, orthotic inserts can be used in almost any of our shoes. Trying a size or a width larger will depend on your foot shape and preferred fit. The best way to get a proper fit with your orthotic inserts is to visit a master fitter in one of our retail stores. Keep in mind also 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.
