Overview

First introduced in 1956 and brought back by popular demand in 2009, this model is our ode to a style that dates back hundreds of years. You see, originally, the wingtip gained popularity in Scotland because its secondary trim provided extra protection from the Highland's rocky crags and its perforations allowed water to drain from shoe as a highlander traversed boggy landscapes. Over the years, this dress brogue has remained a must-have model because its traditional 5-Last fit, sturdy leather sole and the strength conveyed by the short wings instill a sense of confidence to anyone who wears them. Of course, it doesn't hurt that the perfing on the wing, throat and backstay along with the pinking and intricate toe medallion also make these shoes as refined as they are enduring. And just as it has evolved from its humble beginnings into the quintessential business shoe, the McAllister is perfect for the man who is making his way in the world, but hasn't forgot where he came from.

A leather sole has a special feel and traditional look that can't be beat. But in certain inclement weather situations or for guys whose jobs involve lots of time on their feet, it can be good to have the traction and stability that only a rubber sole can add. So you don't have to choose between these two options, we decided to fuse them into the tap sole, a leather sole with V-tread rubber inserts on the forefoot and heel. Polished yet practical for the ultimate presence and performance, the tap sole will have you walking tall, and that's no song and dance.

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.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 38 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good looking, well constructed, comfortable! True to size, great fit out of the box. This is as comfortable a dress shoe as I have ever worn. August 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality, Shoe Care, AE Customer Service Experience How I was introduced to Allen Edmonds shoes: I had several pairs of shoes of another major brand and kept having issues with the welt (edge of the sole) splitting and the throat (top leather @ flex point) was beginning to crack. When I took them for repair I asked my cobbler his opinion. He told me the soles were made of paper. I did some research to find that, while the outer sole is leather, the bottom filling (between insole & outsole) was made of fiberglass and tissue paper and the sole was glued together. I asked him, “Which shoe brand is the best?” He said, with his thick Russian accent, “Allen Edmonds.” I said, “Sure, but I want a really high quality shoe that will last a long time.” Again he affirmed, “Allen Edmonds, they’re made right here in America.” I have to admit, it was ironic to hear a world traveler rate an American-made product so highly. I didn’t even know Allen Edmonds are made right by Lake Michigan in Wisconsin. “So there’s no shoe better than Allen Edmonds?” “Allen Edmonds are the best shoe money can buy.” I wondered if he owned stock in the company… The quality of Allen Edmonds shoes: Anyway, it turns out Allen Edmonds are filled with a special liquid cork (wood) and most shoes have a Goodyear welt. A Goodyear welt is the stitching around the shoe that binds outsole to the top of the shoe. A Goodyear welt goes all the way through to the top welt. Lots of shoes look like they have a Goodyear welt but are actually only glued together. A Goodyear welted shoe will last a long time and can be easily rebuilt when they wear out. Apparently this is uncommon when shopping for dress shoes because it’s much cheaper to just glue them together. After 5 years: I’ve now had this pair of Allen Edmonds for more than 5 years and people still compliment them regularly. Admittedly, enjoy taking care of my shoes and polishing them to a mirror shine. After 5 years, these shoes still look great. As far as care, I always use a shoe horn and shoe trees. If you have multiple pairs of shoes, rotate through their usage. I wear suits to work so I wear dress shoes daily. Every 6-12 months, remove any wax polish and clean & hydrate the leather before reapplying. IF you use wax polish, only use it on the toes and heels, use cream polish anywhere that flexes. My experience with Allen Edmonds Customer Service: I was a little hesitant to order shoes online in the even they didn’t fit. Guess what… they didn’t fit. I’m one of those guys who does everything to avoid calling in. When I ordered the wrong size, Allen Edmonds customer service and got right through to someone with a Wisconsin accent. This is a shoe company and it was obvious they knew how to handle an issue like this. They immediately emailed me a return shipping label and sent a new pair of shoes. Easy. I’ve now ordered 2 pairs from the Allen Edmonds website. Other Allen Edmonds purchases: Today I have 4 pairs of Allen Edmonds shoes and I love each pair. I receive compliments on each pair of my Allen Edmonds. I’m in my mid 30’s and I strongly believe I’ll still wear these shoes when I retire. And finally: What I can say is Allen Edmonds has a quality product and customer service. Thanks for a great experience Allen Edmonds! Post script: Congratulations, you made it to the end of my review! July 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Favorite Shoe This was my first Allen Edmonds shoe. I have owned it for about a year now so I can give a more informed opinion. I normally wear a 10.5 D width shoe and that is what I ordered. So when I received them I was surprised that they didn't fit. Customer service was extremely helpful and explained that with the 65 last you should go up one in width and down a half size. So, free exchange for the 10E and it fit great. They didn't take long to break in and they feel like a second skin. I can wear them all day in comfort. The best part is I can also wear them in inclement weather due to the dainite sole without any pesky water intrusion, unlike my leather soled shoes. It is a great all around shoe that can be worn with a suit down to jeans. I was so happy with the quality and fit of these shoes that I have since ordered several other types from Allen Edmonds and have not been disappointed yet. July 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A classic! This is my first pair of Allen Edmonds shoes, and I couldn't be happier with them. The leather is soft and pliable, and the rubber sole gives me the extra traction I need. Plus, the black wingtip style is a classic design that I know will give me many years of comfortable wear. This will be the first of many more Allen Edmonds purchases to come! July 13, 2016

Answer: 
All Allen Edmonds welted shoes feature a shank-less construction, meaning our shoes do not contain a metal shank like shoes from other brands. Besides helping keep the shoes lightweight, one major benefit of this type of construction is that our shoes can pass through airport metal detectors without setting them off. The heel height on all of our shoes is ½” from the bottom of the sole to the bottom of the heel.

Answer: 
I would recommend the McAllister Wingtip with Dainite Rubber Sole for extended standing or walking. The rubber sole provides much better shock absorption than traditional leather soles.

Answer: 
If the shoes fit you well, yes, they will be comfortable and supportive. Remember though, they are a sturdy dress shoe and not a running shoe. Mine have dainite soles which are probably a little more comfortable. Maybe someone who has both leather and dainite can compare for you.

Answer: 
Part of what makes Allen Edmonds shoes so comfortable is the cork layer insole that conforms to the shape of your feet, and for those that expect to be on their feet for longer periods of time we typically suggest styles with rubber soles that can provide more shock-absorption as you walk. The McAllister with the Dainite sole is a great choice, keep in mind this sole tends to feel firm at first but will soften after breaking it in.

If you are looking for a shoe that provides more layers of comfort, we suggest checking out our new Road Warriors Collection. These styles are 30% lighter than our standard dress shoes, and they provide 4 layers of cushioning: a removable, quality, heel-cup footbed to allow for custom inserts, a PORON®-padded insole, the cork layer under the PORON insole, and a lightweight and durable rubber sole, making the shoe softer and more flexible.

Answer: 
That's a pretty general question so it's a little hard to say with no other criteria, but based on that -
1. First choice would be the Arezzo - really good looking, comfortable, excellent sole
2. The Jefferson - definitely a step above the rest with the soft lambskin lining.
3. Basically any of the available dress shoes with a combination sole or danite sole substituted in place of the single oak leather sole. None really stand out in my mind. A lot of people think the McAllister is more comfortable but I thought it was pretty similar to the rest of the 65-last dress shoes.

Answer: 
The McAllister style is handcrafted using traditional leather foot bed, in which we apply a layer of shock-absorbent cork between the insole and the outsole of our shoes which allows the sole to form an imprint in the cork over time. It does not have an added foam cushion, but a standard leather insole and a cork layer that acts as a comfortable cradle for your whole foot and the resulting imprint is totally unique to your foot shape.

Answer: 
I'll take a shot at this since I have the exact same instep issue. The "get fitted at a retail store" is true, but too generic.
1. If you're having trouble with instep on the 65 last, try some of the more casual styles like the Neumok, Rush Street, etc. that aren't made out of the stiff calf leather like some of the more formal styles. These work better for me.
2. Some run larger, such as the McTavish, Badlands, Black Hills, etc. These are also ok for me.
3. If the instep issue is bad enough for me with a D, going to an E works with loafers, but not with the 65 last lace-ups - the overall fit is altered too drastically to the point where the heel slippage is too great. Would not recommend this. You're best bet if you need a formal, stiff leather shoe is to try a different last -
a. Try your same size in the 333; that was better for me.
b. Try the 222 last - that worked best for me, but keep in mind the widths will run narrower so you may need to do some trial and error here.
c. Try the 108 last - this seems to work for a lot of people #not me though#
4. Saved the best for last - the Rogue on the 201 is the answer to your problem. While it is spectacular looking, the brogue/perfs may not be for everyone. Wish AE would make more on the 201 last - it seems to be the answer to this instep issue with the 65 last.

Answer: 
The McAllister is constructed on the 65 last which is the longest in length of our lasts and the best fit for a long, narrow foot. By selecting shoes manufactured on the last that most resembles the contours of your feet, you will achieve a superior fit, only enhancing the comfort of your shoes.

The best way to get a proper fit is to visit a master fitter in one of our retail stores. If this is not possible, 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.
