For that same reason we celebrated the 30th 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.

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.

Reviews
Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 904 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Great Look, Bad Fit I bought these three years ago from the AE store nearby, and I now have six pairs of Allen Edmonds. I'm hooked. However, I must have gotten a bad pair of the Park Aves. Every other AE that I have fits and feels great, but my pair of Park Avenues still make my feet bleed three years later. The leather is hard as a rock. I've tried to push through it because I do love the way the shoe looks, but I can't wear them anymore because they are just too uncomfortable. I was hoping to wear these shoes for law school interviews that I have coming up, but I can't bring myself to. I talked to a salesman at the AE store, and he told me that these should fit and feel the same as other AE models e.g., the Strand, McCallister, etc. I have both of these models, and my pair of Park Aves does not feel anything like the Strand or McCallister. Every other pair of my Allen Edmonds broke in very well, but these never have. Overall, I'm really disappointed with my pair and have retired them in the closet because I just can't wear them anymore. July 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by if you are looking for great value.......this shoe is it. I absolutely love this shoe and the customer service is fantastic. July 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Allen Edmond's Most Popular Shoe and for Good Reason The Park Avenue is Allen Edmond's most popular shoe. It's one of the classic dress shoe designs that comes to mind. The Park Avenue is also sometimes referred to as the President's shoe, since multiple presidents have worn them on their Inauguration Day. A pair of black Park Avenue's should be in everyone's collection. It's the perfect dress shoe for all occasions and is a classic that will never go out of style. I own a pair in black and walnut. They fit perfectly and are a great pair of shoes. I own about a dozen Allen Edmonds and have been buying them for 20 years. I've kept my shoes in excellent condition by following a few guidelines. I clean and condition my shoes before the first use. Since the shoes might have been in inventory for a while, you want to make sure the leather is hydrated before wearing them. After that it's just regular intervals of cleaning, conditioning, and polishing/shining. And of course I always use proper fitting cedar shoe trees. Another important bit of information is to not wear the same pair of shoes on successive days. This way the shoe has time to naturally dry out between wearings. July 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Park Avenue - Black A fantastic pair of shoes! Give them some time and they will mold to your feet resulting in all-day comfort. Allen Edmonds also has great customer service at their stores and when you contact them. July 15, 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.

I'm a US 9.5 on a Brannock Device. I read that Last 65 is long & narrow. Should I down by half a size, or I can still order a 9.5 ?

I wear 9.5 for all my current dress shoes.

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.

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.

For this reason, 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, if that's 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 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.

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?

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: 
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.
