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.

Reviews
Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 732 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by The Cap Toe Strand is a great looking shoe, classic style I love the style of the cap toe Strand. However, the pair of shoes I received were either mislabeled for size or made wrong. I wear a EE shoe. This time, I purchased the cap toe Strand and the Fifth Avenue, both the same size. The Fifth Avenue fit as it's suppose to, but the cap toe Strand was too tight to fit my foot into. It felt like the cap toe was pulled down too snuggly. I will return the Strand for another shoe and see if it was just a mis-sized purchase. July 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shoe and even better customer service! I bought these shoes in-store and am so glad I did. The shoes run narrow, so it is important to get the correct fit unless you already know. I am very pleased with the appearance of the shoe (I bought the Strands in Walnut) because they compliment just about everything. I had one minor problem with the shoe and this is where the customer service kicks in. The rubber heel liner started to separate from the rest of the heel so I took them back to the store I purchased them from. They returned the shoe at their cost and I had the shoes back, re-healed and polished within two weeks, shipped to my address. I could not be happier with my purchase. BTW, please do yourself a favor and get the shoe trees. These are not bargain-bin shoes and they should be treated like you paid decent money for them. July 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's worth it Read about how this shoe was an overall favorite and I initially overlooked it. I needed a timeless burgundy dress shoe with a little flair and I realized this was the perfect style. The shoe has lots of detail and is well crafted. The oxblood color is for the understated gentleman who wants to be noticed subtly without shouting. It's worth it. July 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Color is fantastic. Craftsmanship and fit are outstanding. I have recently purchased a pair of the special order blue 'Strand' shoes. The craftmanship and fit are terrific. When I wear them, I feel like Moses parting the Red Sea because people stop, stand back, and admire the shoes. Your designers have really outdone themselves this time. They have created a true "One of a Kind". Great job! You can do anything but don't step on my Blue Strand Shoes! July 15, 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: 
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.

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: 
I use a custom orthotic in all my allen edmonds shoes (I use an orthotic made specially for dress shoes and the orthotic is sleeker). I would go 1/2 size up. After wearing an orthotic for 10-15 times, the sole gives way to the orthotic and they are very comfortable.

I also have orthotics, and per my docs recommendation and my history i went up 1/2 size.

The sales people at both stores I visited were very helpful in getting me fit correctly with my orthotics and I wouldn't hesitate to just walk in, describe your situation and ask for the best fit.

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.
