Why It's Great

It doesn’t get much better than Park Avenue. As our best-selling shoe for over three decades, this is the shoe that made Allen Edmonds the company that it is today. Worn by notable statesmen, chairmen of the board, heads of state and leaders around the world, it is as tastefully serious as any shoe you could find. If you’re looking for that first Allen Edmonds shoe to start your collection, this would be a good place to start.

How It's Made

The Park Avenue is made with only the highest quality calfskin leather and is hand sewn with triple seam stitching across the vamp on our classic 65 Last, making it impossible to recreate. It may often be imitated, but it’s never copied.

How to Wear It

Used with our Premium Shoe Polish, you will become a polish believer, there’s no baked in shine here. As a member of our exclusive Timeless Collection, this cap-toe balmoral exudes an air of prestige, confidence and credibility. Simply put, you can’t go wrong with a Park Avenue. As Lisa Douglas famously said "Darling I love you, but give me Park Avenue!”

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the Park Avenue Cap Toe I own three pairs of AEs: Strand, McCallister, and now these Park Avenues. All are excellent shoes and always look great after some time on the street and a couple of polishes. Thanks AE for your shoes and certainly your customer service. You've handled my concerns with professionalism and generosity.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality control Another disappointing experience. I had to send back all my recent purchases for defects that should not be tolerated for such expensive items. These shoes came with a shoelace hole visibly bigger than all the others. These would be great seconds, definitely not you would expect from first quality shoes. I'm just going to keep them, as I got tired of sending stuff back for exchange. This is my first review, very likely my last for a company that I used to love.

Ask & Answer

How to restore toe cap color?

I have this shoe in Walnut. I stupidly tried to clean them without any thought of watching instructions as this is the first pair of nice shoes I have. I must've rubbed to hard on the top where it is slightly darker than the rest of the shoe, and now the dark color is rubbed off in a circular area exposing a lighter color. How can I darken that area again?
Asked by: Anonymous
We recommend sending it to our Recrafting department as they can refinish the shoes the way they are finished at the factory. Alternately, you can try a darker brown polish if you're confident on your ability to burnish the shoes. Consider trying it on an inconspicuous area first to ensure you'll like the results. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

What color edge on Brown Park Avenue and Bourbon Fifth Avenue?

I just ordered the Brown (appears dark brown) park avenue and already own Bourbon Fifth Avenue. Please recommend the appropriate edge dressing color. Thanks!!
Asked by: Nick
The brown Park Avenue has a brown edge so the Brown edge dressing is recommended. The bourbon Fifth Avenue has a black edge, so we recommend the black dressing. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

Has the design shape of the Park Avenue shoe evolved over the years such that the toe is more rounded today and less pointed?

Asked by: Anonymous
The 65 Last has not changed over the past 30+ years. However edge trimming on the soles has evolved over time and can affect the overall appears of the shoe. Also, in years past, we have used lasts with a more pointed toe shape, to make styles that were similar to the Park Avenue. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

Is "5845 Brown" the same color as "Dark Brown Burnished"?

A few years ago I was debating on whether to buy Park Avenues in black or dark brown burnished. In the end, I opted for the black because I wanted to go with a traditional color for job interviews. Now I wanted to buy another pair of Park Avenues, but this time in dark brown burnished color. However, it looks like AE removed it and instead replaced it with "5845 Brown". So was dark brown burnished renamed to 5845 Brown?
Asked by: TheLegend27
Yes, the Brown Park Avenue is the burnished dark brown calfskin. Some descriptions have been simplified. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

Hi. My Walnut Park Avenue's cap toe is a lighter shade than the rest of the shoe. How can I get the cap toe to match the rest of the shoe? Using the premium walnut polish doesn't help to match the darker shades of the shoe. Should I use one of the shoe creams? If so, what shade should I use? Thank you for your time.
Asked by: Orlando Shoe Bro
We use a special combination of waxes and dyes to burnish our shoes and polish will not achieve the same effect. Darkening a toe may require a certain level or experience and we do not recommend experimenting unless you know the results. Keep in mind also that leather will naturally acquire a patina overtime with normal wear and care. If you have concerns about the pair of shoes you received, we recommend contacting our customer service team directly for assistance. They can be reached at 877.817.7615.

Bourbon Ever coming back?

Perhaps my all time favorite shoe would be the bourbon Park Avenue, but I never got a chance to buy a pair. My friend has some and I am impressed. Will that color ever return?
