    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.

    Park Avenue Cap-Toe Oxford is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 1164.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from What happened? I ordered about 6 different pairs of shoes from Allen Edmonds. At least 4 of them has to be returned due to defects in the leather. One shoe was actually worn by someone whom the shoes were too small and the shoes was unbelievably stretched out. Embarrassing ! They tried to make it right by giving me 15% off my next order; I should have waited for factory seconds. They would have been the same quality for a more substantial discount. Never again will I order shoes from Allen Edmonds.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Looking Shoe I spent years hoping for a pair of AE shoes. The Park Avenue was not my first but became my favorite of the eight AE's I now own. The stylish look that never ends. I have been wearing cap toe shoes for over forty-two years now since I first entered into the ministry. I've run the gamut from Stacy Adams, the Florsheim and the always good Johnston and Murphy. The AE Park Avenue excels them all and didn't let me down. Comfort, easy to care for and like my old MacNeils I sent in for recrafting is superb craftmanship of AE. I will NOT buy a China/India/Pakistan/Vietnam (although I'm a VV) as other companies have gone to...Made in the USA until I breathe my last and AE will be my Brand. Park Ave was a desire even when I had two McAlister's which were very good. Love the wingtip, but the Cap Toe was even a dress shoe my grandpa wore. (I'm 67) I keep my shoes "spit-shined" with Saphir. If I pay for the best shoe I polish and care for shoes with the best. Not a put down to others like Alden, but they need to up their game to looks also. Dat's all folks!!!

    I noticed that your new models don’t have the shoe logo inside the lining, is it true?

    No more “Allen Edmonds” logo inside the shoe?
    Asked by: Joe

    Are the heels leather?

    Asked by: Chester
    Technically, yes. It is “particle leather” much like its wooden counterpart it’s small bits of leather that has been compressed. Makes the shoes cheaper. I’m not an expert but I’m fairly certain the cobbler that told me was knowledgeable: Kirby Allison’s refurbishment specialist mentioned in a video specifically about resolving Allen Edmonds.

    Do the Cordovan Park Avenue’s run small, big or true to size? All of my dress shoes are 41 (ECCO and Timberlands). AE fitted me today at 40

    I know my foot is wide but was told by an AE rep today that I was EEE. I purchased two Cordovan Park Avenues today and I am hoping the representative measured my foot correctly.
    Asked by: Freddy
    Thank you for your inquiry! The Cordovan Park Ave does fit true to size.

    what is the difference in the park avenue cap toe and the park avenue cordovan cap toe?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    The Park Avenue shell cordovan version also uses a more expensive and denser leather sole made by a firm in Germany. My experience with this sole is that it is significantly more durable than a conventional leather sole, and will not require replacement as often.

    Cordovan Water Resistance

    I have read that cordovan leather is a more durable leather with a higher propensity to repel water and handle more harsh winter weather conditions. Is this true and can I expect to be able to wear these through the (Ohio) winter without causing long-term permanent damage to the leather. I maintain a fairly regular shoe care routine with polishing and waxing, however, am not obsessive.
    Asked by: Steve
    While Shell Cordovan is more durable that calfskin, it can still absorb water and create water stains.We suggest avoiding rain or snow if possible as water and salt can cause damage. If you get caught in the rain or snow, we recommend wiping down the leather as soon as possible and letting them dry away from heat, then follow your typical care routine. To protect your investments, we suggest using overshoes which are waterproof. Feel free to contact us again if you have additional questions!
