    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.

    Relaxed Fit

    Most people consider a “classic” fit to be a “standard” fit. This fit more closely aligns with the natural shape of your feet.

    Ask & Answer
    Grantham Dress Plain-toe Blucher is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile The Grantham is a very specific looking dress shoe, in my opinion. It's not normal business casual the way a derby or a wingtip are. Instead, the Grantham is nearly wholecut, with the leather being one seamless piece from the plain toe all the way down the sides to the back. It's only interrupted by the true blucher lacing, where the eyelet facings sit on top of the shoe. In principle, that's a dressy shoe, but on the other hand, the chisel toe design is almost square-toed. The Grantham is a good dress shoe, and in my opinion, it is chisel-toed, not square. But it's also wonderfully versatile. In black, it's fine with a suit. But in tan and oxblood, the Grantham becomes a perfect complement to jeans and a polo shirt. For an almost-square-toe, it's a smidge tight. Even in my size 9EEE, my big toes feel a smidgen tight sideways, and the shoe feels narrow at the ball of my foot. My right shoe is creasing more than I'd like, but creases are okay in the end. I'm expecting the break in period to smooth out the issues a bit. On the other hand, the blucher lacing opens the shoe very wide and makes getting in and out a breeze.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what hoping for. I've been hoping AE would come out with a style like this. I love them, just gorgeous in walnut (10 3E). Casual dressy. Great with jeans or a suit. Modern but classy. The right and left leathers clearly not from the same batch and don't quite match, but close enough. Perhaps this last is a bit narrow for me. (I may get them stretched.) While not as comfortable for me as most AE shoes, I will nevertheless get a lot of wear out of these.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking shoe, chiseled toe similar to bespoke style Great looking shoe for dress or business casual. I purchased this shoe due to traveling and the need of a shoe for business meeting and business casual after hours. These shoes fill that need, I have worn with tailored suits, then khakis later for dinner. I have worn these shoes up 10-14 hours, plus many compliments.

    Is it possible to do a re-sole (I'm assuming that's the same as a re-craft) once I wear them out in a few years?

    Asked by: Michael
    The Grantham is eligible for our Recrafting service and can be resoled when selecting the Standard Package option. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    1943 last to discontinued 333 last

    How close is this (1943) last to the discontinued 333 last, which I loved? Specifically the Grantham profile to the Hanover profile? Thank you,
    Asked by: Mickey1
    Thank you for your inquiry. The 1943 last is a derivative of our established 333 last. We held the heel of the 333, reduced the toe length and widened the fit across the ball of the foot for a traditional aesthetic tying back to our iconic dress lasts. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
