Details & Overview

Carlyle Plain-toe Oxfords


  • Lace-up oxford dress shoes
  • Plain-toe balmoral
  • Lined premium calfskin leather upper
  • Single oak leather sole and regular heel
  • 360 degree Goodyear welted construction - 212 steps of Craftsmanship
  • Manufactured on the welted 108 Last - All about Lasts
  • This shoe is recraftable - Recrafting Service
  • Proudly Handcrafted in the USA of fine imported leathers at our Port Washington, Wisconsin factory


Just like our Park Avenues, the Carlyle Hotel has a long history with American presidents. Though this new six-eyelet balmoral hasn't yet achieved the fame of its cap-toed forerunner, its name signifies the fact it has just that kind of potential. Already being called an instant classic, the understated handsewn whipstitching coupled with the burnishing on the toe allow the style's great lines and impeccable calfskin to shine. The 108 last design, which features an elongated, tapered toe, gives this dress shoe just the right amount of attitude making it perfect for the modern executive that is considered a success but still feels like he has something to prove. Finished with a regular welt, single leather sole and regular heel, the Carlyle instills confidence when you walk into any office, oval or otherwise.

Product Care

Allen Edmonds Shoe Care

When caring for your calfskin, use Allen Edmonds Leather Lotion 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.

Carlyle Plain-toe Oxfords is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 135.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Shoe leather flakes off the top very easy I have several pairs of Allen Edmonds and have loved all of them. These shoes were the first I am displeased with. The leather near the toe has been "chipping" off after only a few wears.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of Lace I purchased black 9D. They are very comfortable even though my right foot is wider than my left. However, the laces are so long! I have to tie a double knot otherwise there's lots of dangly lace. AE needs to address this issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Looking Shoe Ordered three pairs; all three have same fit, same quality and are comfortable during daily wear. Hard to find a decent made shoe that has craft/quality at a decent price.

Ask & Answer

I measure at 13.5 and B width. What is your recommendation in the Carlyle?

Asked by: Anonymous
We suggest trying a 13 and a 14 and judge the fit based on how comfortable you feel in each size. 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 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.

Can I special order Carlyle's with patent leather finish?

I'm looking for a pair of patent leathers for black tie events. Can the carlyle's be special ordered in patent leather? Thanks
Asked by: Anonymous
Thanks for your inquiry. At this time, we do not offer patent leather styles or custom options. Typically we suggest applying our Carnauba wax to impart a higher shine on the surface for the leather for a more formal look. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

Can this shoe acomodate the more formal flat evening laces?

The style of the Carlyle lends itself to evening/ black tie use while polished to a mirror finish. However, most tuxedo shoes use flat evening laces, usually one to one and half inches wide resulting in a beautiful bow tie knot. I would like to know of this shoe would take these wider laces.
Asked by: Anonymous
We have not tried the type of lace you describe. The eyelet holes on our dress styles are roughly 3mm in diameter, which is less than 1/8". We hope this helps you determine if they will work for your laces. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

Oxblood turned white now what?

Wore my Carlyle oxbloods (non-burnished) to work the other day forgetting that there was mandatory CPR / First Aid training. We all spent a fair bit of time on our knees with "Resusci-Annie", treating for shock etc. Unfortunately, the tips of my shoes were in contact with the carpet which removed the oxblood color rendering the tips completely white. I have used the oxblood shoe polish to attempt to cover the white spots to no avail. Is there anything that can be done to save them?

It's a beautiful shoe! What's the rationale behind using flat laces, as opposed to the rounded wax laces? Do the rounded laces work style-wise, too?

Asked by: Anonymous
They simply look great on this style. The round laces work nicely too. Ultimately, it comes down to personal preference. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
