Overview

The Strand is Allen Edmonds CEO & President Paul Grangaard's favorite style! The relationship began in the early 1980s when, as a newly-minted banker eager for overseas experience, he had the good fortune of being transferred to Frankfurt, Germany. Given his age, inexperience and the language challenge inherent in the job, he was looking for a "credibility-enhancer" and some needed gravitas. So he bought his first pair of this distinctly American version of the classic senior executive's cap-toe brogue. When he became head of Allen Edmonds in 2008, Paul made sure they were one of the first styles reintroduced in the Timeless Classics Collection. Built on the 5-Last, these balmorals are full of personality, thanks to an array of impressive perforations plus a striking medallion on the cap toe. Perfectly complementing its design elements is this model's orderly and architectural form, which effortlessly conveys an air of achievement as well as refined elegance. This means, just as it did for Paul, that when you put on a pair of Strands, you'll elevate your game at the same time.

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 4.6 out of 5 by 426 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 You Can't Go Wrong With This Style It is painfully obvious that the Strand is a beautiful style and one of AE best-selling dress shoes. I first saw them in Nordstrom (in Walnut) and liked them a lot. Afterwards I did a lot of online research, especially on this website, and discovered the Bourbon color which I thought was stunning. After properly getting sized-up at O'Connors, I made the decision to invest in the Bourbon Strands. The Strands are gorgeous in any color, but Bourbon and Oxblood are the real standouts. When the shoes arrived, I knew I made the right choice. I am very happy with them and look forward to wearing them in the spring. They fit and look wonderful. If you have to buy only one style of dress shoe from AE, the Strand is a fabulous choice. January 31, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Wonderful shoes My first pair of AE. Have been wearing these for two years now, and they are more comfortable as the years go on. However, I noticed that the color (Tan) has a tendency to fade in some areas, particularly the side of the shoes, differing slightly in color with the toe cap. January 28, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 Beautiful patterned shoe, unfortunately my first pair arrived with a construction flaw. Beautiful patterned shoe, perhaps my most favored of the Allen Edmonds line. Unfortunately I received a pair of Walnut Strands in which the left shoe construction was manufactured out of alignment. The superior and inferior lower half of the shoe deviates sharply from the midpoint of the shoe, starting under the bottom edging of the tongue, and continues deviating to the heel. One way of describing it in words is if one views a scoliosis of the human spine deviating to the right in one continuing bend. Have brought this to the attention of Holly D., Allen Edmonds Customer Service representative. Holly responded admirably and is seeing to it that the matter will be rectified to my satisfaction. I must also add that Holly really conveyed interest, one of A.E.'s great representatives. P.S. Have ordered an additional pair of Strands and awaiting their arrival, this one will be Oxblood in color. Jack L. January 26, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Nice style, but disappointing quality and a bit of a hassle These are not exactly "inexpensive," but I am always happy to pay a bit extra and get a quality product. In this case, buying a fairly expensive shoe did not result in a quality product. I bought a pair of Strands in "Bourbon" online (on sale, not seconds), and was very excited to receive them, given all the positive reviews. One of my favorite shoes previously had been my Allen Edmonds Park Avenues, so I eagerly awaited the Strands. Unfortunately, there was a pretty large discoloration and damage on the finish at the cap of each shoe, and one of the shoes had fairly poor workmanship in the stitching on the sole. I returned the shoes and customer service was very courteous and helpful in guiding me to determine whether to process a refund or get a replacement set. The replacement set was due to show up fairly quickly, so I elected that path. However, the replacement shoes did not show up at the promised date, so I reached back to customer service to determine if an updated delivery estimate could be obtained. I was promised a call back with the updated estimate, but did not receive one. I called and left a couple additional voice mail messages to try to get an update on when/whether I'll receive the replacement pair, but have not heard back yet. I really want to like this company and product, but overall, this has been a pretty disappointing transaction. January 26, 2016

So far I've had the best luck with AE shoes that are made large to accommodate an orthotic insert. But I really like the look of these shoes and would like to own a pair. I understand the construction is the same with orthotic and non-orthotic shoes--the orthotic versions just have more room. So I'm wondering if I might be able to just buy a larger size in these and use an orthotic? I'm a size 12D generally; if I were to use a standard AE orthotic, what size should I buy? (Don't worry: I intend to try on and buy at an AE store; but I'd like to be prepared when I visit the store.)

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 your feet. 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.

The tongue on my Strands is stitched to the top of (the inside of) each shoe, but only to one side. Is this standard on all AE dress shoes? Just curious.

It is difficult to recommend a size through this channel and guarantee a proper fit because each last and size 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.

What belts exactly match the Brown Burnished Calf Strands? I have a few pairs of the Bourbon Calf Strands and wear the Bourbon Manistee belt. However, I don't see a Brown Burnished Calf Manistee belt. Which Manistee belt matches the best? Are you coming out with a Brown Burnished Calf Manistee belt? If so, when? I appreciate the help!
