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 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. 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

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 4.3 out of 5 by 675 reviewers.
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
Rated 3 out of 5 by Park Avenue I own several pairs of AE Shoes - like the look - but feel they run narrow compared to other brands. I have a two pairs of the park ave. and noticed that the heel on one of my shoes is separating from the sole. One would think for what you pay for these shoes - that they would hold up better. I will go to the store and see what they can do about fixing or replacing the shoe. January 20, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by The infamous bowing Purchased a new pair of PAs and unfortunately the right shoe has significant bowing when standing. I cannot attribute the fault solely to construction because all feet have differences but I can say that I do not have the same issue with my left foot. This leads me to believe there are issues with quality control. Now I am contemplating what to do with the shoes that haven't even seen pavement... January 3, 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.
