    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inconsistent sizing I have two pair of the Caen, black and tan. For my first pair, the black, I downsized from a 11 EEE to a 10 1/2 EEE, based on recommendations in the reviews. The size was perfect. Like absolutely perfect. And the boot looks great. Comfortable, well-made and great looking. What's not to like? I ordered another pair in 10 1/2 EEE -- in tan -- and the boots were tight, like a standard 10 1/2. I just couldn't wear them. I took them off immediately and will need to send them back. A great boot, just make sure it fits.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable boots. I’ve really enjoyed wearing these boots. They were comfortable right out of the box. No break in required. The leather is very soft and comfortable. Really like the way they look.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Million dollar move with a 10 cent finish Ok, perhaps the title of this review was a tad exaggeratory; that being said, it's not far off. Firstly, the suede is incredible. I honestly can't imagine better. It's some of the nicest suede I've ever seen. Overall construction is well done. Seems like a sturdy boot that will last me many years. Oh, and they are extremely comfortable. However, the actually craftsmanship seems rather poor relative to particular price points. At the retail msrp of $375, I'd choke at how poor the craftsmanship is if I paid that much. At $250, I'd be rather disappointed and would very likely return. At the ~$160 sale price, the craftsmanship is acceptable. However, that creates a bit of conundrum. I didn't buy a 160 dollar boot. I bought a 300+ dollar boot on sale. So I still expect a high level of finishing, which just wasn't delivered. Stitching and threading is loose everywhere you look, small stains on the suede, over paint on the sole, what I can only describe at glue strands? on the upper, and other poor attention(working to quickly) to detail aspects. These honestly should have been thrown into the factory seconds bin if AE actually stood by there claim of high level craftsmanship. At the end of the day, AE is a midteir company and I've come to not expect any better quality than that - midteir. The suede quality surprised me, but the craftsmanship pulled me back down. In conclusion, under $200 this boot's materials will likely exceed anything else in this price range. Any higher, the craftsmanship doesn't warrant the price.

    Can the insole be removed and replaced with an orthotic?

    I have AE shoes with removable inserts (Benton (PLS BRING THEM BACK!), LGA OXFORD) and those that have fixed insoles. My question is: can the insole of the Caen Cap Toe ( or any AE boot) be removed to accomodate an orthotic insert?
    Asked by: Ronald
    Just checked mine and was unable to remove the insole. (By hand.)

    Should the Caen be laced and tied like the Normandy?

    Asked by: NJ Gramps
    Just checked mine. It is possible. Laces they came with are long enough. Looks good too. Should they? Up to you. Good to know it’s an option.

    Sizing for boots. size down?

    I normally wear size 9 shoes from allen edmonds but saw a review where one person had to size a whole size down for boots. So should i be safe and go for 8 1/2? or they true to fit?
    Asked by: Pat
    From my experience, all of my Allen Edmonds have fit true to size. I have Higgin's Mill boots, McTavish, and Strandmok. However, If you order first quality boots, you can return them at no cost for a different size. If you order from the Shoe Bank, you can still return them for a different size, but there is a $10 re stocking fee

    How will this reversed kudu hold up in rainy weather and puddles? And will salt be a problem for it? I don't necessarily mean all day, but 10-15 minutes of a moderate rain and some unavoidable puddles.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    I have a pair of kudu reverse suede chelsea boots from Rider Boot Co for over a year. They are fairly tough against the rain, especially when you are diligent with spraying some protectors. My concern would be the welt, whether it is sufficiently water-resistant so you will not experience a leak when stepping into a puddle.
