    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.

    Classic Fit

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

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent shoe! Great product! Caught on sale, so a really great deal. I can already tell that the shoe will last me a while, especially if I get them recrafted. Really pleased.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Most attractive I’m a shoe guy. I have eight pairs of AE’s. These are the most attractive. This is a stiff, well made shoe. The squared off toe and gloss are perfect. The styling is fashion forward and therefore unusual for AE. My fit, however, has been problematic. I wear 10 1/2 2E. I was told during the annual sell that these shoes only came in 1E and 3E. I opted for the 3E. Sent them back because they were way too large. The 1E’s are a bit small but I kept and stretched them because they’re beautiful. The fit is not perfect but it is acceptable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice shoe !!! So this is the latest AE dress shoe that is now in the closet. I wear this with high quality suits, walk and stand for long periods, and so far , I am getting what I expect . The shoe fits true to size, take a while to break it in, and now I'm at the place where it feels good as well as looks good. I bought my first wave of AE shoes probably 15+ years ago. I am just now replacing/replenishing the closet. I am still pleased with the quality and design.

    what replacement laces do i buy for a size 8.5 in the cornwallis dress oxford?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    We recommend 30" or 33" dawhyde waxed laces (thin) or glazed laces (slightly thicker). https://www.allenedmonds.com/shoe-care/mens-shoe-care/laces/ Thank you for contacting us!

    Why don't you make this shoe in "C" widths? I have previously tried this shoe in a "B" width (size 9) and it was just a little too tight on my foot.

    I have a pair of AEs that I bought 30 years ago, and they are beginning to wear out (I didn't take good care of them the first few years I had them). Are the lasts different now than 30 years ago, or would the new ones need to be stretched out?
    Asked by: RPM53
    We're sorry that this style is not made in a C width. If the B is too snug, we suggest trying the D width. Alternately, we do offer other select styles in the C width. You can find them here: https://www.allenedmonds.com/shoes/?prefn1=size&prefn2=width&prefv1=9&prefv2=C Regarding the lasts, in the past few decades there are lasts that have been discontinued, new ones have been added, and others that are still offered. If you know the last on your shoes, you can filter by last on our website to see if we have other styles offered in that last. If you require assistance selecting a style, please feel free to call us at 877-817-7615. We'd be happy to help!

    What size should I order for the Cornwallis if i am a 10.5 EEE in the Park and 5th Ave? Will they fit the same?

    Asked by: Djw
    Hi Daniel! Each style can fit differently based on the contours of your feet, so it’s difficult to recommend a size via Bazaarvoice and guarantee a proper fit. Typically, we recommend trying the same size you usually wear and judging the fit based on how comfortable you feel in the shoes. If possible, we’d love to have you visit an Allen Edmonds retail store or one of our retail partners for a professional fitting. Our associates are trained to help you find the right fit for the various lasts and styles we offer.

    Which heel and edge dressing are recommended for the Cornwallis line of shoes?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    We recommend applying the color that matches the color of the sole edge. The Black and Navy Cornwallis have a black edge, so we recommend the black dressing. The Brown Cornwallis has brown edge, so we recommend the brown dressing. For the Dark Chili Cornwallis would be the chili dressing. Finally, the Walnut Cornwallis has a light brown edge so you can use the neutral dressing. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
