Overview

"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." Those are the words of Leonardo daVinci, who brought that sensibility to all of his artistic endeavors, including the many footwear prototypes he sketched out. In creating the Leeds, we combined this Italian's artistic notion with a uniquely American design to produce a shoe that is at once aesthetically pleasing while also being inherently straightforward. This model's handsome plain-toe and blucher vamp combine to create a traditional look that blends perfectly with any outfit, from a suit to khakis and even jeans. Of course, simple doesn't have to mean boring, so we added an intricate arch saddle-stitch and a double oak leather sole to give the Leeds just the right hint of refinement. Throw in the comfort that comes with the wider girth and more rounded, fuller toe of this 1-Last shoe, and you've got a fashionable, foot-friendly design that even an Old Master would be proud to wear.

Product Care

Allen Edmonds Shoe Care

Cordovan leather requires different care than calfskin due to its different properties. To remove any natural oils or residue in areas where the shoe flexes, and to maintain the leather's quality, simply brush the leather with a horsehair shine brush or wipe with a cotton flannel polishing cloth. Polish occasionally with Allen Edmonds Cordovan Care Cream to protect the leather and maintain its rich color.

This shoe style is manufactured with Genuine Horween® Shell Cordovan. Click here to watch a video about the special care that goes into making Shell Cordovan, and learn about the long relationship between Allen Edmonds and Horween.

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

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 113 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Average Quality for a Premium Price The Leeds cordovan shoes are probably my 10th pair of shoes purchased from AE. I've decided that the Leeds is probably the most versatile style, because it can easily transition from dress to casual, and I must say that the fit was perfect. But I'm not sure AE can guarantee the quality expected for the Cordovan price. Like other reviews, the leather on my Cordovans warped after the very first wear. I started to return them, but it seemed like a hassle. After waiting 6 weeks for them to be delivered, it seemed ridiculous to have to wait another 6 weeks for a replacement pair. Bottom line, I don't think they are a good long term investment. After a few months, the leather has warped so bad that the shoes look a couple years old. Disappointing. July 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Leeds Cordovan Derby/Oxford shoe a leading shoe. I purchased the Leeds Cordovan Derby/Oxford Shoe in burgundy or cordovan color. It is one of the best shoes made regardless of price. The quality of the materials, the expert craftsmanship, and the attention to details combine to create an international standard that exemplifies what made in America means. July 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cordovan Leeds are the best available shoes on the market I know what you're thinking: Upwards of six hundred is a lot to pay for a shoe. Put that from your mind. Here's why: Fourteen years ago I walked into the San Francisco AE store and told the salesperson, Julie Scott that I was thinking of one pair of shoes. She listened to what I had in mind and the intended use and ducked out back, came back with a pair I hadn't even considered. Where normal dress shoe shopping was an exercise in agony and torture, slipping these shoes on was perfect. I couldn't have asked for a better fit or value in my shoes. Over the course of the next year, I bought three pairs from Julie, including a pair of Cordovan Leeds. If you don't know the material, you should. It wears like iron, it doesn't crease, and it feels great on your feet. My 13 year old pair still look brand new and complement any suit I wear them with. Combined with AE's sole repair and replacement, this is the best money you'll spend on your feet your entire life. July 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The most versatile shoes I own These are great shoes. The shell is very durable and the burgundy color is good with nearly everything. The shoes are well made and long lasting. The soles can be a bit stiff when new, but after a bit of break in time they are very comfortable. June 24, 2016

Answer: 
The Leeds style has been improved in terms of comfort and sole durability. The main differences between the old and the new version is that the Leeds 2.0 has a 3mm Poron insole for added cushion on top of the cork layer, and the double sole is now a Butyl soaked double sole which has a much higher resiliency to water than the original double leather sole.

I was looking for clarification on this also. The documentation clearly states that the new Leeds is on the 511 but I have seen some places say that the original Leeds was on the 97. I tried on the original Leeds not too long ago and it felt like the 511 to me.

Answer: 
Allen Edmonds shoes are constructed on a wide variety of lasts (foot molds) and each will feature unique fit characteristics. The Park Avenue is constructed on the 65 Last which is elongated with a narrow fit. The Leeds is constructed on the 511 Last which is a good fit for the average foot, but it has a rounded, fuller fitting toe.

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. It is vitally important to visit a master fitter in one of our retail stores or retail partners 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.

I do not have a Allen Edmonds near my area in order to get fitted, so I will be assuming I need the same size as my other dress shoes.

The brown color Leeds says it is crafted in four weeks after order. Does this still have the same return policy as Allen Edmond's other shoes?

Can I return or exchange it if it does not fit?

Answer: 
The Leeds in Brown is an Online Exclusive shoe that takes 4 weeks to craft for you. This is different from our Custom shoe program where we create your own shoe to your specifications and they are not returnable.

So if the Leeds does not fit in the size you ordered they 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.

I wear orthotics. Can the insole be removed on this shoe? I want a black dress shoe with a rounded toe. Which of your shoes will let me remove the insole. I have tried the Benton and New Haven w/o success.

Answer: 
No, it cannot be removed. Of course, if you play around with the size, a larger shoe will accommodate, not something I prefer. I have worn orthotics, and while it depends on your feet, I have found that the cork bed molds very nicely to your feet without the orthotic. I cannot recommend another shoe in the lineup which will give you the removable insole, the Benton would have been my one suggestion.

Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in Allen Edmonds.

No, our Leeds style was not manufactured with an orthotic fit in mind nor with removable insoles.

You can find the complete Allen Edmonds Orthotic Collection for all Allen Edmonds styles which do feature removable insoles by clicking the following link here: http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonlin...?. Also note, we currently have plans for several additions to the Orhotic Collection for Spring 2013.
