Believe it or not, even with the changing nature of office dynamics - with conference tables once replaced by foosball tables and French cuffs giving way to t-shirts - there are still consummate professionals out there. These guys blend hard work with innate intelligence to become a respected success while they effortlessly juggle the duties of work and family. Leading by example, they demonstrate what it takes to turn a job into a career, how to see the big picture, when to go for that big promotion and what shoes to wear. And more often than not, this type of man is wearing Fifth Avenues. The perfing on the cap-toe combined with the sleek silhouette gives this model just the right hint of personality, while the traditional six-eyelet balmoral design created on the 5-Last ensures a tailored fit. So whichever street you work on, this style is perfect for anyone who has made it to the corner office or is on his way there.

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.

Fifth Avenue Cap-toe Oxfords is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 472.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second Pair! I cannot say enough good things about these shoes. Great quality & craftsmanship, and I get compliments almost every time I wear them. Also, they last virtually forever; I just bought my second pair when the first pair wore out . . after almost five years! Allen Edmonds shoes are the absolute best.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Before I discuss quality, let me state that these shoes are very comfortable after breaking-in. However, I have owned two pairs within the past year and each pair has developed the same problem, a quarter size hole at the mid-foot (e.g., down to the cork). I would understand if I wore the shoes everyday and walked long distances, but I walk 30 yards from my car to the garage elevator on concrete. Then I exit the elevator and work 25 yards to the office elevator on tile. The remaining time I walk on a carpeted surface. I will walk to lunch every other day (on average), less than .25 miles roundtrip. So, in my opinion, I do not walk enough to warrant wearing through the soles of two shoes in 4-5 months. The retailer replaced the first pair after Allen Edmonds told me they could only re-sole the shoe at the regular cost. I am planning to take the current pair back, but I refuse to continue replacing my shoes every 6 months, especially at the price point of these shoes. I would recommend to a friend if the quality would match the cost (i.e., last longer than 4-5 months).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor fit I recently purchased these shoes from a brick and mortar AE store. I was very excited about the look and the AE quality. The first pair I had didn't fit right so I took them back to swap them out. The issue was that in one place on one foot the shoe cut into the edge of my foot. I haven't had problems with this before, but I thought it might just be a manufacturing issue due to AE's being handmade. Unfortunately the second pair had the same issue and did not feel comfortable in a different spot. Would have loved to be able to keep these shoes, but I had to return them due to being uncomfortable and having various minor imperfections in the exterior.

Recoloring dark chili color

Does the Walnut color change over time with wear and care?

I've got a new pair of Fifths in Walnut and am wondering what will happen to the color over time. Right out of the box they are a beautiful light brown color, although a bit orange for my taste. Will they darken with wear and polish? I've read that using the conditioner cream on Walnut AEs will darken the color a bit, and I've experienced that myself with the Rush Street. If this Walnut ages to a darker tone these shoes will fit nicely between my merlot Parks and brown Rush Streets.
Asked by: Anonymous
Use Kiwi brown polish, and they will darken just right .

Are these stitched or glued?

Asked by: Anonymous
AE shoes are legitimately welted - no glued on, faux-welting like Johnston & Murphy or Bostonian.

What replacement laces should I buy if the standard ones are too short?

I bought a pair of the cap-toe oxfords and the fit of the 11 shoe is right, but the laces seem too short and i cannot knot them easily. I was thinking of getting some replacement laces, but what size would you suggest.
Asked by: Anonymous
The Fifth Avenue is shipped with a pair of 30" Dawhyde laces. We recommend trying the 33" laces. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

I'm new to AE shoes and would like a recommendation on leather soles or rubber.

I walk about 6 hours a day on tile and have been told leather soles will not be good for this. Is this true and should I look for a shoe with a rubber sole?
Asked by: Anonymous
I just love the feel and quality of a leather sole but on tile they can be slippery. Get leather but go to a quality shoemaker and they can glue on these very nice thin rubber soles over the leather sole. This serves to both prevent slipping and adding life to the shoe sole.
