Overview

Whether it's the timeless architecture of New York's dramatic Chrysler Building or the boundless utility of a Swiss Army Knife, you just can't improve upon some ideas. 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.

Reviews
Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 677 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by A faded version of a classic I purchased the black version of a shoe which I have had purchased in brown twice over the last ten years. The black shoes are simply inferior to the the shoe that was made in past. Sloppy finishing and sadly what seems to be an inferior starting point as the leather is not as even. I kept them as I needed the shoe for a wedding I had the next day, but I will miss the Allen Edmonds of old. February 7, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Can't be worn outside... I have loved my Park Avenues since the first day I put them on...until I had them recrafted by AE. Initially, after getting them back I was highly pleased. I decided to increase my care for the shoes after recrafting by purchasing an AE shoe care kit, and also a pair of Swimz galoshes directly from AE. I had previoudly just used Kiwi products, but had great results (got a high shine and wore them in the rain in Seattle often with not a hint of a problem). After getting them back after recrafting it was clear that by "refinish the uppers" all they did was strip the leather. With my new AE shoe care kit I followed all of the AE leather care recommendations using THEIR products and always wore galoshes when there was even a hint of dampness outside. None the less, after their first exposure to a bit of rain after being recrafted, the toe caps have bubbled up, and the shoes are effectively ruined. Whatever they do to the leather when recrafting strips it of any protective layers the shoes have, and their care prodcuts provide zero protection from the elements to counter this. The Swimz galoshes ($100, mind you) are basically worthless. Basically, in recrafting I paid to have AE ruin my favorite shoes. My heart is broken as these shoes were a graduation gift from my father, and now they are destroyed after I cared for them exactly as AE recommends. Toe cap replacement isn't a recrafting option, so I guess I will need to buy a new pair....only I won't because the leather is highly permeable, their shoe care products are terrible, and accessories are deficient in caring for these shoes properly. February 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 Simple, Elegant, and Versatile I have to start this review by commenting on some of the previous reviews. It is imperative that as a customer you understand the different lasts that AE shoes are made on and how that pertains to your feet. Once you understand the 65 Last and the width that best supports your feet, you will have limited problems with fit again in regards to the "Park Avenues," and many of the timeless models such has the Strand on so on. Don't expect a shoe made on a different last to fit the same as the Parks. My go to shoes are a pair of Burnished Calf Merlot Color Parks that the leather has become so soft and broken in that I don't know they are on my feet. Unlike most, I wear these with suits, business causal attire, and even jeans. I get compliments every time I wear them. I even have people at work that I don't know approach me and ask me about my Parks. They are at least 10 years old and I am terrified to send them in for recrafting because they are starting to come unstitched (very small) near my ankle. I fear AE will tell me that they are ready for the graveyard. If you can't get to an AE store to try them on, I suggest you find a Nordstrom Store to try them on first. Don't be afraid to try a wider size either. Parks are a little narrow in my opinion. Do not buy blindly off-line and hope they will fit. Again, do your due diligence and understand the lasts and how they fit. Once you have that down, build your collection and rotate, rotate, rotate. When they are not on your feet, make sure there is a shoe tree in them. Shoe trees will keep them pristine. Parks are timeless and are good for any occasion. If I could only own one style of shoes, Parks would be it. For first time AE shoppers, start your collection with Parks. You will not go wrong. January 23, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 Good shoe, looks great, heel falls apart within one year Purchased two pair of Park avenues a year ago with the understanding and expectation that they would last several years. Less than one year later I have heel splitting on one pair and leather distortion on the other pair. The only option is to send them back for a two week repair which is not guaranteed under warranty. Very disappointing for a purported high quality, high priced shoe. January 22, 2016

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: 
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 each person's 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.

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.

The shade of the Walnut Burnished Calf Park Ave appears darker than your other Walnut Burnished shoes. Am I seeing things correctly, or is this just the way the photo was taken? Thanks.

Answer: 
The different colorations you are seeing on our photos for the Park Avenue in Walnut compared to other Walnut styles are a result of the photographer using some creative lighting; however, based on our hand burnishing technique used to finish each shoe, colors can vary. The byproduct of our hand-crafting process results in a unique and special pair of shoes each time.
