    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.

    Strand Weave Cap-Toe Oxford is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 37.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fully satisfied The shoes are true to size with the weave having the expected and appropriate amount of give. The weave make these shoes extremely comfortable out of the box. I bought a pair with the chili color and they needed a good initial shine. They work with slacks, jeans and a business suit. Fully satisfied.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old World craftsmanship with New World style and comfort. I am quite pleased. I've been wanting a pair of AE woven shoes for several years, but they were unavailable in my extreme size (15 3E). Fortunately, AE has made the decision to extend their size range to include those of us who are normally left out in the cold. That decision will make me an AE customer and evangelist for life. A few minutes ago my Strand Weaves arrived and they look even better than the sample photos. They bear the marks of a handmade shoe, and I caught a whiff of the glue that was used to prepare the custom V-tread tap sole I asked them to use. The smell instantly took me back to my childhood, when I visited my grandfather's shoe shop. He was a shoe craftsman, trained in Europe in fine shoe craftsmanship, He came to the US after WWII and set up shop, only to sadly discover a world of poorly-made ("good enough") disposable shoes. As a result, he spent most of his time repairing and improving poor-quality shoes for his customers. However, he recommended Allen Edmonds shoes to my father, because when they eventually needed repair/recrafting, he saw the same care and craftsmanship that he invested in the occasional custom shoe jobs he received. Thinking fondly of him as I examined my new Strand Weaves, I know he would be pleased that I have invested in craftsmanship, style, and comfort. The shoes fit wonderfully, and I am looking forward to making them a regular part of my AE rotation. Well done!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very stylish, Excellent fit I really like the design of this shoe and they are very comfortable, even when new. Several people have complemented me on my Strand Weave Cap Toe shoes. I ordered in the walnut color and they are a good match for most of my trousers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shoe I have ever owned! The quality of leather and materials used to construct this wonderful pair of shoes is beyond reproach. These shoes make one feel like a King, and I whole heartedly endorse the purchasing of them. Thank you Allen Edmonds!

    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.
