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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like the shoes Great product. I have purchased them in the past. A little pricy but as usual, you get what you pay for. Let me put it this way, I work in retail. I wear these on Black Friday. A very long day for retailers. I purposely wear these shoes on that day. Yes, after the 12-14 hours, my feet are tired but they don't hurt. My first purchase of these shoes were suggested to me by a sales person as being a quality product and could handle Black Friday. I told her that they were more expensive than what I paid for the car I drove to the store (which was true at the time in my life). She was correct. They were perfect. perhaps they have helped me afford better transportation. Great product and yes, I use the recrafting.

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?
Asked by: Anonymous
There are currently no immediate plans to reintroduce the bourbon color. We still have some styles in a few sizes left in stock. Feel free to contact our customer service team directly at 877-817-7615 and they can help check if your specific size is available.

Dark Burnished Brown?

I bought the Park Avenue a few weeks ago in the dark burnished brown, and was planning to buy a second pair (so this could be my daily work shoe) after I breaking in the first pair. However, this color appear to have been replaced with just "brown." Is this still the same color (it has the same SKU, 5845) or should I be searching the clearance section hoping to snag my second pair while I can?
Asked by: Anonymous
All colors of the Park Avenue are burnished during the hand finishing process, including the brown style #5845. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

How much extra space lengthwise is normal for this shoe?

I ordered this shoe recently and want to make sure the shoe is not too long. How much space should there be between the big toe and the end of the shoe for this style?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Park Avenue is designed with an elongated toe so you will have more room than most other shoes. However, you should judge whether or not a shoe fits by how the ball of your foot feels across the width of the shoe and not by where your toes end up. 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.

Asked by: Anonymous
Thank you for your interest. We cannot recommend sizes through this channel and guarantee a proper fit. We suggest visiting a local store that can do a professional fitting on you on a Brannock device. Here are some links about lasts and fit that you may find helpful: Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

What color belt to match navy blue Park Aves?

I am looking to purchase the Park Aves in Midnight Navy. But there isn't a Midnight Navy belt option. What color belts have you paired with the midnight navy shoes?
Asked by: Anonymous
We recommend a dark navy belt for these styles and we will offer a matching belt soon. In the meantime, we suggest a black dress belt like the Midland Ave. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

Will dainite sole conversions require changes to the footbed or require nails?

If I have a leather soled Park Ave, and sent it in for recrafting and a dainite outsole conversion, would it require nails to be put in the shoe, and/or changes to the footbed/insole? Also, if I were send it back for a second recrafting(after a dainite conversion), would the recraft service revert back to a leather sole, or would it continue to be repaired with dainite? I understand that a fee is needed for the initial conversion, but do subsequent recraftings require a conversion fee to continue using dainite?
Asked by: Anonymous
Thank you for your question. If you have a sole conversion done, any subsequent recrafting would keep that sole conversion in place. There is not additional work done to the insole for this type of conversion. The Dainite sole is stitched on the same way as a leather sole would be.

Oxblood Finish Shoe Care

AE, I am accustomed to conditioning and saddle soaping my oxfords before polishing as part of my shoe care routine. The AE store representative advised me to not condition or saddle soap the Park Avenue Oxblood oxford. The reason is due to the ingredients from the conditioner/saddle may distort the Oxblood finish. I request AE to publish a recommendation. Thank you. Respectfully, Will Mach
Asked by: Anonymous
Thank you for your inquiry. Saddle Soap can be used on Oxblood styles, but we do not recommend using the Conditioner Cleaner. The Cleaner Conditioner is better for shoes that are heavily soiled or that have developed product buildup over the years. You can find the care instructions for the Park Avenue (or any other style) here on our website, by clicking the 'Product Care' tab. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
