    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.

    Strand Weave Cap-Toe Oxford is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 47.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another beautiful pair of dress shoes. I purchased the Strand Weave Cap-Toe Oxford in Walnut. This is my fourth pair of AE dress shoes and once again they have blown me away. The craftsmanship is superb. Highly recommend these shoes. The weave on the shoe is a distinct look. I have received many comments on these shoes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love all my Allen Edmonds shoes! This is my third pair. I know what size to order on line now so it makes it a little more convenient. I do prefer going to one of the stores in Manhattan for the experience but I opted for an online purchase this time due to time constraints. These shoes are well constructed and there is no “break in” necessary. Nothing but compliments when I wear them. They are the only shoes I buy anymore. If you don’t have a pair, you don’t know what you’re missing.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Brochure Photos Are Deceiving -- Chili Color Has Poor & Irregular Dying Strand Weave Cap-Toe Oxfords in Chili dying were a big disappointment! I was sold on the shoes from the brochure as they reflected top-quality, professional dying with a nice shine, but once they arrived that was not the case. While the construction appears to be top-quality, the 'fit and finish' are simply not up to AE's standards. Waited 3 weeks to get these (not in stock) and have debated for 3 weeks as to whether I could be satisfied, but finally decided to return. The cap on one shoe has a light streak across the top where dying was missed and there is no shine at all on either of the shoes. Already had a walnut color in the Fifth Avenue and plenty of black, so I chose the 'chili' just to be different. .Bought these online out of a sale catalog for $315, which would be a reasonable price vs. $425 regular price. Deciding that the walnut color, based on experience, would be of better quality, I phoned CSR and requested an exchange but was told AE doesn't do exchanges except on the "exact" shoe color. This made no sense as I would have to pay an additional $125 because of poor quality. I have Allen Edmonds, Bragano (Italian), Johnston & Murphy, Cole Hahn, etc. in my shoe racks but these shoes pale in comparison to the finish and shine.. Will have to give considerable though re: buying another pair of AE. While many gloat over AE shoes, they are far over-priced and some just take pride thinking they are driving / walking in a Ferrari. For these folks AE should put a 'badge' on the cap to let others know they are AE, but who really cares?

    Is the strand weave primarily a seasonal shoe for the summer months

    Is the strand weave a seasonal shoe only?
    Asked by: Cigarsmoker
    Not a seasonal shoe if one orders an all around type soul. Care should be taken however, to protect ones' investment.
