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
Strand Cordovan Cap-toe Oxfords is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 796.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great business and casual shoe This is my second pair of EA shoes I bought. Like the Fifth Avenue I bought them in NY, but these in Walnut. As the Fifth Avenues, they are perfect to wear, look stunning and are extremely comfortable. I most of the time wear them with blue Jeans and they are my go to shoes when I am not 100% sure if I should go formal or casual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 'Go To' shoe My very first pair of Allen Edmonds was the Strand. I picked these up a year ago and to date they still hold their shape. I do normally polish and clean them using their Allen Edmonds products, but after going through a winter and numerous rain falls, they have held their own. The last on these shoes is also great. They really conform to my feet and are really comfortable. I would definitely recommend picking up a pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent This was my first AE shoe (I was buying Cole H before). I absolutely love it. The quality is out of this world. Within three months of this purchase, I have purchased 3 additional AE shoes and 4 belts. Quality is just amazing!

Do you recommend taking insoles out of this shoe to put custom ones in?

Hi, When I put soft custom insoles that I like inside of this shoe, my heel becomes too high and it gets pushed out and it keeps coming out as I walk in the shoe. I really like soft, sneaker like insoles with thick padding, so I am thikning about purchasing EEE widh in this shoe for maximum toe comfort and then I was thinking about taking insoles that come inside of this shoe out of this shoe by professional (current insoles that come with the shoe seems to be tightly glued to the bottom of this shoe so I will have shoemaker do it) and this should open some space for thicker insoles to be put it and my heel will not come out as much when I walk. Does this plan sound good to you or this is not a good idea and you do not recommend it and why don't you recommend it?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Strand is not designed with a removable insole and we do not recommend removing the attached insole as it will damage and affect the integrity of the shoes. Keep in mind this would void any warranty or eligibility for Recrafting in the future. We suggest choosing a size or width combination that works with your insoles or taking a look at our styles that feature removable insoles that allow you to accommodate your own orthotics. http://www.allenedmonds.com/shoes/mens-shoes/removable-insole-shoes/ Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

Why have you changed the strand shoe to rubber sole instead of leather? I think rubber soles make them look cheap. I will have to find another brand .
