Overview

For that same reason we celebrated the 35th Anniversary of the sleek design of our Park Avenue in 2010, continually one of Allen Edmonds' best sellers and the Inauguration Day footwear choice for Presidents Reagan, H.W. Bush, Clinton and G.W. Bush. Guaranteed to make a dramatic impression, this cap-toe balmoral combines a classic silhouette with unsurpassed craftsmanship to convey the serious presence necessary for anyone who leads by example and ensures the Park Avenue will perfectly suit all the most important moments in your life.

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 4.5 out of 5 by 910 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Classic I own a pair in black and merlot. It gives me added confidence when I wear the Park Avenues in just about any business or business casual situation. Classic yet elegant is the best way for me to describe. I always like to apply a good coat of AE lotion followed by premium shoe polish at least a couple of times during the initial 90 days. It seems to condition and give a lasting shine. They seem to avoid scuffs and hold look a little longer between shines after initial applications. August 24, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great shoe, comfortable and stylish! This is a great shoe, very comfortable and required no break-in. I wore for 8+ hours the first day I had them.My only complaint is the continued rapid price increase of AE products and the fact that a few days after I purchased these on-line my local Nordstrom store had them on sale for $50.00 under what I paid. Ugh..... August 24, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Disappointed in wrinkled leather above the stitch line when received. wrinkled leather above the stitch line on the shoe that I feel shouldn't have been there when the shoes arrived for the price you pay. This was my 4th pair of Allen Edmonds purchased in the last year, but should have sent these back. August 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Gold Standard I have own and worn a pair of Park Avenues since circa 1980s. I have two pair now. I have them re-crafted about every 10-12 years. The classic styling never goes out of style. They are durable, sturdy, comfortable and lightweight. I will continue to buy this model as long as AE makes them an keeps up the level of quality they have maintained with this model and last. AE please keep making shoes in this last and please make more designs available for a 12AA foot! August 12, 2016

If I have a leather soled Park Ave, and sent it in for recrafting and a dainite outsole conversion, would it require nails to be put in the shoe, and/or changes to the footbed/insole?

Also, if I were send it back for a second recrafting(after a dainite conversion), would the recraft service revert back to a leather sole, or would it continue to be repaired with dainite?

I understand that a fee is needed for the initial conversion, but do subsequent recraftings require a conversion fee to continue using dainite?

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. If you have a sole conversion done, any subsequent recrafting would keep that sole conversion in place. There is not additional work done to the insole for this type of conversion. The Dainite sole is stitched on the same way as a leather sole would be.

AE,

I am accustomed to conditioning and saddle soaping my oxfords before polishing as part of my shoe care routine. The AE store representative advised me to not condition or saddle soap the Park Avenue Oxblood oxford. The reason is due to the ingredients from the conditioner/saddle may distort the Oxblood finish. I request AE to publish a recommendation.

Thank you.

Respectfully,

Answer: 
Thank you for your inquiry. Saddle Soap can be used on Oxblood styles, but we do not recommend using the Conditioner Cleaner. The Cleaner Conditioner is better for shoes that are heavily soiled or that have developed product buildup over the years. You can find the care instructions for the Park Avenue (or any other style) here on our website, by clicking the 'Product Care' tab.

Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

My feet are an 11EEE, but AE shoes always feel a bit snug, despite the fact that they are obviously well-made. Would getting a half-size
larger make a difference?

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.

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 Park Avenue style was not designed with an orthotic fit in mind and so it does not feature a removable insole. However, if the shoe is fit large enough, orthotic inserts can be used in almost any of our shoes. It is important to keep in mind that the use of an orthotic will alter the way a shoe fits; we recommend trying on your orthotics with the shoes or visiting one of our master fitters at our retail stores as they can recommend the best possible fit.

Answer: 
Nothing will ever replace an actual fitment of the shoe you are considering to determine which size is best for you. That being said, personally I size down by a half on the 65 relative to my brannock. My brannock also splits the D/E width and I take an E for the 65 in calf leather, but a D fit excellent in cordovan.

I own 3 pairs of AE that by accident are all in the 511 or 1 last. I want to order a pair or Park Avenues but I have read that the 5 last is longer and narrower. I am a 10.5 D in the 1 last. Should I go with an even 10 in the PA 5 last? And should I stay with D width or go larger with E?

Answer: 
Andrew, just my two cents. My foot is a 12AA or even AAA in some shoes. I have worn Park Avenues for more than 40 years and the last they are built on are perfect for my foot, even snug. But that is what I like. I also own a 12AAA in the Grayson...so, you might want to think about it bit more, or even better, go try them on.

Hi,

I'm between a 12D and 12E. The 12E feels just right around the ball and front of the foot, whereas the 12D feels better in the heel and shoe opening, but a little tight and even a bit painful at the ball of the foot. Which size would you recommend? I.e. would the problem of the loose heel on the 12E be lesser than the other?

Thank you.

Answer: 
I had a similar question, regarding the width of the shoes I bought. I went with 8D instead of the 8E. I have two different colors walnut and dark brown. The walnut shoes fit great but the dark brown are similar to your "little tight and even a bit painful..." comment. I've had them for 6 months and will be taking them back to get the 8Es.

Answer: 
Go with the E. The D is way too tight. I was sized at 11.5 E and I still need needed to get the shoes stretched because they were painfully uncomfortable when I first wore them.

Answer: 
It is difficult to recommend a size through this channel and guarantee a proper fit. The size you choose depends on the fit you prefer; some customers prefer a snug fit while others prefer a looser fit. However, we do not recommend wearing shoes that are uncomfortable or painful to wear.

We highly recommend visiting our Allen Edmonds retail store in Salt Lake City for a professional fitting. They will be able to examine your shoes and feet to suggest a better size or even a better fitting style.
