  • Care

    We believe a great pair of shoes or boots is always a solid long-term investment. To keep your favorite footwear in top form for years or even decades to comes, use our 4 Step Shoe Care Process and these essential products.

    1. Clean

    Start by applying Saddle Soap with a Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth to remove stains and dirt from the uppers and bring up the leather's natural oils.

    2. Polish

    Next, use a Horsehair Dauber to treat your footwear with Cream Polish which renews the color and luster of leather. Any time you want to achieve a truly glossy, high shine, you should instead apply Carnauba Wax Polish.

    3. Dress

    Restore the color and surface of the leather on the heels and soles using Heel Dressing.

    4. Protect

    Leather Lotion keeps uppers soft, supple and hydrated while a Horsehair Shine Brush is perfect for buffing your shoes to the desired shine. As a last step, spray on Water Protector to guard against harmful moisture and spills and use a Leather Dopp Kit to keep all your care products organized.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value! I purchased both the black and brown colors. I wear a Size 15 shoe, so I don't have tons of options, These fit great, and required minimal break-in. They are very comfortable. I can wear them all day. They look great with jeans, as well as a blazer and slacks. I now own five pair since 2008.I highly recommend AE to anyone who prefers quality footwear.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Badlands But Excellent The Badlands, similar to the Wilbert although the two are built on different lasts. Just like its Wilbert sibling, the Badlands are comfortable, properly roomy to compliment its weight and design and crafted well from fine materials. I am surprised by the negative reviews although errors happen in manufacturing a shoe and airplanes, I find most negative reviews to be subjective. Instead of posting a negative review, I'd contact customer service first, call a retail AE store and try to exchange an imperfect pair.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe to dress up or dress down After wearing them around the house for an hour a day for 2 days they've already broken in nicely. Comfortable. Sharp looking. Contrary to previous reviews, I find the photo to do the shoe justice. They are not high polished shiny but are subtle in shine and texture.

    Are these the shoes sometimes advertised as "dress sneakers"?

    Badlands Comfort shoe
    Asked by: Ken
    No, they are not dress sneakers they are more like walking shoes. My first pair were quite light and comfortable. Allen Edmonds does have a new line-up of dress sneakers that look quite intriguing.

    I need to replace the laces on my Badlands shoes.

    What replacement laces do you recommend? Does Allen Edmonds sell them? I've had the shoes for several years and they're great.
    Asked by: Michael
    I prefer round laces instead of the flat laces that they come with. If Allen Edmonds doesn't have them, I ordered round waxed Sovereign grade laces from Kirby Allison for several pair (6 I think) of Allen Edmonds shoes.

    Is there cork in the soles of theBadlands or is it just rubber? The reason that I ask is that the recrafting video show an unknown pair of AE with what appears to be a rubber sole and cork is shown to be in the rubber.
