    Care Instructions

    STEP 1: Using a damp cloth or sponge, lather our Saddle Soap and apply onto leather to clean and restore its natural oils.

    STEP 2: Moisturize the shoes with our Cream Polish to make them supple and soft, following instructions on the product.

    STEP 3: Condition the shoes with our Speed Polish, protecting them from dirt, rain and snow.

    STEP 4: Take our Heel dressing applicator and apply to the edge of the heel and sole.

    STEP 5: Apply our Leather Lotion as needed for added protection and polish in between cleanings. Use our Horsehair Shine Brush to buff shoes to a desired shine.

    *For camo printed leather, simply rub our Leather Lotion onto print with our Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth as needed and wipe smudges or dirt away with a damp cloth.

    Wilbert Comfort Shoe is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 519.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST pair of shoes I've ever owned!! I own 6 pairs of Allen Edmonds shoes. They all fit extremely well but the Wilbert stands out as the very best. Super comfortable even when I was in Rome, walking for miles on those cobblestone streets. The fit is superb. My only wish is that they made the Wilbert in a black as well. David San Gabriel, CA

    Still made in USA?

    I noticed that the website states these are now "imported". Does this mean the Wilbert is not made in the USA anymore?

    Is this the replacement for the AE Ashton?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    Not really. The Ashton has a removable insole and was on the 678 last, not the 511. The leathers are also quite different between the two styles.

    I wear hard orhtotics, Would this shoe work with them?

    Asked by: sbrown00

    What belt and shoe polish do your recommend for the brown Wilbert (1951)?

    I was in the Allen Edmund's store in Oak Brook IL, and the store attendant who was extremely helpful and I could not find a belt to match or even blend with the brown Wilbert (1951). Why would you not make belts from the same lot as the shoes? Please advise what belt you recommend? Thank you
    Asked by: JGC3
    We would recommend the neutral polish for your brown Wilberts. You may also want to try the Cognac Brogue Street as a coordinating belt.

    Are these manufactured in WI or has it been shipped over seas too like many of the other AE shoes on the 511/511G last which has been a disappointment to me?

    dark brown chromexel?

    is the dark brown the same horween chromexel leather as the brown Higgins Mill?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    That's a really good question. My sense is that only the Higgins Mill Boot (7562) has the chromexcel leather. I think the Wilberts are made from Outland leather. What's the difference? Here's an old question and Customer Service response from approximately April 2014. Taken from the Q & A listing under Wilbert....... Question: "What is the difference between chromexel and outland leathers? I have had several pairs of Wilberts, but I do not know which kind of leather I got. What are the differences? I have found that after using leather lotion and buffing, I put a light tan polish on the shoes for a very nice looking finish." Answer: "While Chromexcel leather and Outland leather are very similar, they are sourced from different tanneries and so the tanning process and finish are different. Chromexcel leather is characterized by its rich pull-up quality and oily effect, whereas Outland leather tends to have a slight waxy finish. Beyond that, they are both very similar in appearance. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions. Allen Edmonds Customer Service 4 years, 7 months ago"

    Would you wear the Wilbert with summer grey or beige dress trousers.

    I own a pair of Wilbert's and mostly wear them with jeans. I tend to be a little more casual than the average Allen Edmonds customer because for me, my everyday shoe would be my Oboz hikers, or Teva's (I'm retired). To me this is a dress up jean shoe. However, they are a terrific shoe, and in a couple of weeks I'm going to a wedding (outdoor one). I'll be wearing a blue blazer, button down with tie, and summer grey dress trousers, and also pair the blazer with a khaki color summer dress trouser as well. Will this shoe work with both? Also, what belt do you recommend to go with the Wilbert. BTW, these replaced a pair of Cody's that I had and loved for years.
    Asked by: David
    I would wear them with khaki trousers but I don’t think I would wear them with the gray. For classic blue with gray pants you want black shoes. I would suggest my fav dressy AE s the 5th Avenue.
