    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.

    Park Avenue Cap-Toe Oxford is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 1173.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the very best shoes I own This shoe was completely comfortable from moment one putting it on---no break-in period, nothing. I have read of various complaints about AE workmanship and build quality both here and elsewhere on the internet. This is my 6th or 7th pair of AE shoes and no defects or problems have been noted with any. The purchases date from 2019 back to 2001 or 2002. I have absolutely no regrets but that I can't wear them often enough based on my attire, as these are quite dressy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent dress shoe! The shoes are exactly what I was looking for.Outstanding quality and workmanship. A great looking pair of shoes!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic American Dress Shoe If you have only one pair of dress shoes, make it a black Cap-Toe Oxford, the most classic and versatile of all. And if you're looking for value, Allen Edmonds is a great choice. I just wish these came in 4E. The 3E is just a bit tight but a few hours with a shoe stretcher took care of that. Still, kudos to AE for offering such a wide range of sizes and widths. You should be prepared to polish these shoes out of the box as the factory finish, while adequate, just doesn't bring out the gorgeous shine you can achieve by hand. Definitely use a mirror polish on the cap. And I prefer to lace my shoes using the straight bar method, so I swapped the AE laces for a pair of 36-inch laces.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Park avenue oxfords Ordered park ave seconds on sale. The leather looked like they were an apprentice made shoe that should’ve been used for what not to do. The left shoe had a very painful lump under the ball of my foot. Ordered park ave firsts. The quality was what I expected of seconds. This time the right shoe had a very painful lump under my the ball of my foot. I believe based on the evidence that AE’s QA/QC doesn’t exist. Started this process to be a customer for life. Ended up being a never again customer with passion. Probably used to be a great American made shoe. Major bummer. I wanted to buy made in USA but now it’s over to England for quality made dress shoes.

    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.
