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 captoe 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

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Very Good, as Expected Classic style, comfortable, and polish up nicely week after week for years. Just like all my other pairs. September 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This shoe is a work of art! And it is extremely comfortable. I feel like a million bucks wearing this and it is perfect to wear for both formal and casual clothing. This one I'm keeping forever! August 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Join the AE club! I bought my first pair of AE shoes for a birthday present to myself. I had my eye on a pair of Strands (walnut) for quite sometime. Needless to say, you get what you pay for. Quality. The shoe fits like a glove. I was professionally fitted at a local AE store which helps. I actually learned I have one foot larger than the other... took 49 years to figure that out. As a result of this fine experience, I can't see myself buying any other brand of shoe. I get compliments all the time... Other owners of AE shoes will recognize yours too. Keep an eye open for sales, while I paid full price for my pair; I don't regret it. Here is the bonus: They are made in the U.S.A. August 14, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed I own six pair of AE shoes. Five of the six are on the 65 Last (Strand & Park Ave & McAllister) which fits my foot really well. Unfortunately, my pair of dark brown Strands in 8.5E do not fit well despite putting the time (1yr) into wearing them and trying to break them in. They are becoming progressively more uncomfortable for some reason which is the total opposite of the rest of my AE shoes that seem to only feel more broken in and comfortable with time. Specifically, the leather feels hard and the toe box is oddly narrow and crooked and crunching my toes. Despite being properly measured at a store, I must admit, this pair just never felt as good as my other shoes from the beginning. I know these are handmade shoes and there are natural variations but something is really off with this pair which is making it impossible for me to wear them. It's a shame because they are beautiful and minimally used. I hope something reasonable can be done to fix this situation. August 6, 2016

I use their walnut polish for this pair. I do have a brown that I got for the burnished toe but haven't had to use it.

Note: I mostly use a neutral conditioner and polish infrequently so as to not cake polish on the shoes.

Answer: 
Neutral would just add a clear coat of polish and maintain the exact look of your shoes. The walnut would add color to your shoes that would help hide any scratches or blemishes.

Answer: 
I bought the merlot Manistee belt to go with my oxblood strands and it pairs perfectly. I was concerned about whether the merlot would match the oxblood. I saw somewhere in the forum where AE recommended it, and so I went with it. I'm glad I did.

Answer: 
The hue on the oxblood and merlot is very close, Merlot is lighter, so I recommend a Merlot if you cannot find an oxblood.

Answer: 
The best width is the one that fits your foot. The only way to tell is to measure the width of your foot on a Brannock device. It will tell you the proper length and width of your feet. Measure both feet because most people have one foot longer than the other. Make sure that you get shoes that fit your longest foot. Make sure that you are standing when your foot is measured to ensure that you get an accurate measurement. Most shoe stores will have a Brannock device. I was in a department store and there was no sales clerk around and a Brannock device was laying on the floor, so I stood there and measured myself. Every time I find a Brannock device, I just double check to make sure my size hasn't changed.

Answer: 
For the sake of your feet, go to a store to get measured. I was measured in a dept. store for AEs at a 10D. The professionals at AE measured me as a 8.5 EEE and they're perfect.

Answer: 
Size and width are very individual attributes. one person may feel a 10.5 in a D is perfect for them, while it may be too tight for someone else. I always have to get my shoes in EEE. That is due to how my foot is shaped. The biggest problem with buying shoes in regular department stores is that they typically will only sell them in a medium width. Have your foot properly sized at an Allen Edmonds store if your unsure of what width is best for your foot.

Answer: 
It depends on the shape 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.
