  • 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.

    Factory 2nd - Strand Cap-Toe Oxfords is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these Strands! These are beautiful shoes! If they are factory seconds, I can't tell why. I have my routine when buying AE Shoes. I immediately apply Saphir Renovateur, followed by Saphir Médaille d'Or Pommadier Cream, then Saphir Medaille d’Or Pate De Luxe. For walnut, I use Cognac, but you can go lighter or darker on the color. With the Strand styling and the Saphir products, these shoes look absolutely awesome! I constantly receive compliments on these shoes. The price point was perfect and the shoes are great. I love the Strand styling, so I bought them in Navy blue also. They too are absolutely gorgeous.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking shoes I purchased these 2nds with two slight scratches that buffed right off after a few times of buffing and polishing. I only have one slight concern with my shoes. They were a bit stiff/hard when I got them. They are breaking in with every day of use. Here is where the slight concern comes into play, the shoes have indeed stretched quite a bit and are slipping in the heel area. I can remedy this with an extra liner sock. Which I don't care for, so my next option is to add leather heel grips liner cushions inserts which should make them fit perfectly. Feet are slightly uneven. Left foot is slightly longer than my right. Have always worn size 10 in all my shoes. My Strands are 10D. I love the shoes despite the slight stretch in them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking shoe The shoes look great and the walnut color just pops. These Strands are my first pair of AE shoes and I’m impressed. The smell, feel and look of the shoes is better than any other pair of shoes I have ever owned.

    Issues with the width

    I've never bought AE shoes before but I am considering buying a pair. Would the width be transferred to all other AE shoes? Would you recommend going to an AE store to determine proper size and width or would any shoe store would suffice? Thanks.
    Asked by: Rocha83
    I would go to the nearest AE store or supplier and try them on. This way you can get a correct size. All shoe manufacturers are slightly different in the way they fit. Not every foot is the same.

    is there a big difference from width D to E?

    Asked by: Jhet02
    Thank you for reaching out to us. Each width increases by approximately three-sixteenths of an inch in total girth. We hope this is helpful!
