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 4.5 out of 5 by 437 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Disappointed I purchased these shoes a couple of months ago. I bought them in black since I loved the quality of the leather on the black Franciscans. Unfortunately, as other reviewers above mentioned, I've experienced the leather wrinkling, bowing and discomfort due to width. Additionally, only the leather on the toe looks as it should, the rest appears very odd/cheap looking. No amount of polish is able to resolve the issue and my Cedar AE shoe trees cannot keep the leather flaws from getting worse. This really detracts from the enjoyment of the shoe and it looks nowhere near the quality that it should. I also went through multiple shoes before this that I had to send back, due to quality issues. Although my Walnut Franciscan 2nds are flawless I will likely not be purchasing another pair of Allen Edmonds shoes. May 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Bomb-diggity This shoe is fantastic. Just the absolute best shoe I've ever worn. Have it in 4 colors May 19, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good looking but very tight I love the look of The Strand in the Walnut color to wear with both a blue suit and grey suit. I have 2 other AE shoes ( Park Avenue and Randolph ) but this one is by far the most uncomfortable because it is very tight fighting along the top of my foot. Even with it laced very loosely, it feels like it constantly tightens on my foot so that I am constantly having to unlace it and re-tie it so that it is has a looser fit. I am hoping that over time, the leather loosens up and maybe expands so that it becomes a comfortable shoe to wear because I truly like the look of the shoe. Thankfully I can unlace it often and no one can tell when I am sitting at my desk. But doing this every hour is a pain. So this might eventually be a shoe that is only worn on special occasions. Even though I most of my ratings are no more than 3 stars, I would recommend this shoe because of its look. But, I would let people know that I think it is a very uncomfortable shoe. That being said, comfort is a personal feeling, so what might not be comfortable to me, would feel fine to others. May 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by By far my favorite My favorite shoe to wear in any accasion and any outfit. 2 years and still holding strong. I will purchase more so please keep making. May 16, 2016

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.

Strand Cap-toe Oxfords

Jim Austin

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.
