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 Conditioner Cleaner 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 4.3 out of 5 by 691 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor lasting and leather quality I've been wearing 2 pairs of AE's shoes(Strand and Lexington) past 5 years and I had been satisfied with the quality, and especially "socks-like" fitting. So I purchased a new pair of Park Avenue. Though the fitting was as good as my own pairs, the lasting of around the shoe mouth was deeply , poorly wrinkled which I've never seen in any pair of my shoes and any of the sold. And also the leather quality is like the corrected leather, not calf at all, which is far different from my Strand. I don' t believe it is the same kind of leather in differnt colour. I'm deeply sorry and disappointed with the quality deterioration while increasing the price up 70 dollars a pair in mere 5 years! I do understand and honor AE is struggling to produce and keep producing within US but you should at least keep the quality with the price up. I still love my own AE shoes but sadly will not buy any pairs longer, because of the quality... Wish I just picked the bad one with my bad lack... May 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Customer service is second to none I've been wearing Frye, Sebago, and Johnson and Murphy Oxfords for years but I was recently introduce to Allen Edmonds shoe quality. I had to return two pairs of Park Avenues due to improper fitting and I was given full credit in exchange for another two pairs. Ms. Mary Schommer from the customer service department was very understanding of my predicament and she was fantastic with my refund process. Thank you Allen Edmonds for continuing to make fine business footwear in the United States. I have three pairs now and I know that if I need another, it will be one from Allen Edmonds. April 24, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor quality leather, worse construction I've never written a product review before, but my disappointment in these shoes has moved me. I bought these as a replacement for a pair of similar looking but much less expensive cap toes from another manufacturer when the sole separated after three years. Reading plenty of positive reviews, I had high hopes for these and the first six to eight months were fine. I keep them in rotation with a few other pairs of AE dress shoes, making sure to only wear them once or twice a week, polishing them regularly, and storing them with AE shoe trees, but they're quickly looking worse than the shoes they replaced. Walking home from work one day, I got caught in a downpour. I dried out the Park Avenues and stored them as I always do, but the next day, the leather was blistered and bumped. Later that week, I stepped on some loose gravel on the sidewalk, which tore a hole through the leather sole. Three days later, the hole is the size of a quarter and completely exposes the cork behind it. Now if the sidewalk is wet, water seeps through into the shoe after a few steps. One year into ownership, the shoes are falling apart and the leather looks awful. My previous cap toes lasted three times as long for half the price. I've read a handful of reviews lamenting AE's declining quality but never believed them until now. My three other pairs of AEs seem much more durable and still look great, but these Park Avenues just aren't worth it. April 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A beautiful, meticulously crafted shoe. I'm 34 years old, and this is the first high-quality dress shoe I've owned. I must say that I regret having ever wasted my money on lesser shoes. Pictures don't do this shoe justice; in person every little detail shines, pun intended. I still need to break them in, but my initial impression is that this is a snug, but true-to-size shoe that should become even more comfortable with time. I am pleased to say that I have two more pairs on the way. Great job, Allen Edmonds - thank your workers for me. April 15, 2016

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.

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?

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: 
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.
