    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shoes are good quality construction, but not particularly comfortable. Shoes are good quality construction, but not particularly comfortable. feels tight in middle and yet loose at top. I had expected a shoe at least as comfortable as Clark, however the leather is not as soft.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect deck shoe with dose of flair The quality and craft you expect from AE. The blue outsole along with the less common black upper provide a nice dose of flair to this classic.

    Does this shoe have a removeable insole?

    How do I adjust the lace to tighten this shoe? There is extra lace provided on only 1 side thereby providing no apparent way to tie the shoe.

    Asked by: DeeBee
    The Force 10 has laces that can be adjusted. One end starts on one bottom eyelet, weaves around the heel and comes out the side through the opposite bottom eyelet. To tighten the heel, face the shoe towards you and pull on the first section of laces at each side of the shoe. You will see the back of the heel tighten up. Then, pull the excess lace out of the bottom eyelets. You can cut the extra lace if you feel they are too long after tying the shoe on your foot. If you need further assistance with the laces, please visit an Allen Edmonds retail store or call us at 877-817-7615.

    Go up or down in width?

    I normally order a 14E in either a 65 or (rarely) a 201 last. This gives me a good fit with light weight socks, snug but supportive. These shoes jump from D width to EEE, Which width would be better, or is this just not going to be a good fit? I would tend to wear socks. I do not live near a retail outlet ever since you closed the Freeport, Maine shop. Any chance of that coming back?
    Asked by: EDWARD
    Unfortunately, we're unable to recommend a size via this channel and guarantee a proper fit. However, you can expect a difference of 1/6" in length between half sizes, a difference of 3/16" in volume between the D and E, and a difference of 3/8" in volume between the E and EEE. Feel free to order online and try them at home, you can return them under our Return Policy terms which you can find here: While there are currently no plans to open a store in Maine, please know Allen Edmonds is always looking to expand our locations. Thank you being an Allen Edmonds customer!

    Can I re-lace these w/ a replacement lace so they can be tied like a regular shoe + not be a slip-on? I need a tighter fit due to a very narrow foot.

    Asked by: DeeBee
    The laces on the Force 10 style are functional and can be adjusted. If you prefer a different type of lace, you are welcome to change them. You will need to source your own laces and we recommend that they are at least 45" in length. Keep in mind, it is difficult to replace these laces around the collar without the proper tools. Feel free to reach out to our Recrafting team for assistance and cost information.

    The laces are functional if you need to adjust them, however most customers use this style as a slip-on without having to untie the laces. If you have other questions, feel free to contact us again.
