  • Care

    We believe a great pair of shoes or boots is always a solid long-term investment. To keep your favorite footwear in top form for years or even decades to comes, use our 4 Step Shoe Care Process and these essential products.

    1. Clean

    Start by applying Saddle Soap with a Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth to remove stains and dirt from the uppers and bring up the leather's natural oils.

    2. Polish

    Next, use a Horsehair Dauber to treat your footwear with Cream Polish which renews the color and luster of leather. Any time you want to achieve a truly glossy, high shine, you should instead apply Carnauba Wax Polish.

    3. Dress

    Restore the color and surface of the leather on the heels and soles using Heel Dressing.

    4. Protect

    Leather Lotion keeps uppers soft, supple and hydrated while a Horsehair Shine Brush is perfect for buffing your shoes to the desired shine. As a last step, spray on Water Protector to guard against harmful moisture and spills and use a Leather Dopp Kit to keep all your care products organized.

    LAX Derby Shoe is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 188.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for those on their feet all day! I'm a professor that is standing/walking the majority of the day and am thankful for purchasing two pair (chilli and black) a few years ago when they were on sale. Extremely comfortable and I highly recommend. My outside heels are starting to wear, but that's due to my own gait which occurs in all of my shoes. I also own a pair of Park Avenues I use for more "dressy" events that are also comfortable, but I reach for the LAX when I know I'll be on my feet all day. Granted, the LAXs are a size wider than the PA (11.5 E vs. EE), but the difference in soles and lasts are more comfortable for all day use in my opinion. Just purchased a pair of Bond Street (currently on sale), which may be a nice compromise between the two dress shoe styles I already own. Similar look to the PA but roomier in the ball/toe box area with the 64 vs. 65 lasts, which may be exactly what I'm looking for, so I ordered 11.5 E.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent shoe. With a narrow heel I have had difficulty with shoe slippage. Not with these, however. An Allen Edmunds clerk pointed me to them a year ago and I have been exceptionally pleased. Unlike one review I have no issue with them squeaking or making noise. They fit true to size.

    Is this a curved last, or a straight one?

    By any chance is there a EEE available in a 12.5?
    Asked by: Phil845
    All lasts have some degree of “swing” to the inside; none of our lasts are straight. Regarding inventory, we apologize this is a discontinued style and sizes/widths are limited to what it currently displayed online.

    Is there any way to fix the finish on chili shoes? The dark color has mostly rubbed off on the toes and heels and dark polish won't restore it.

    Asked by: Richard
    If the shoe's finish is faded, damaged or discolored beyond the ability of regular shoe cream to restore it, consider having the shoe leather re-dyed by a shoe repair person who offers that service.

    Can plastic heel taps be nailed to the heel of this soft rubber sole?

    Asked by: Torsten
    While I haven't done so on the LAX yet, I have nailed plastic taps to similar rubber soles without an issue. I may end up doing it to my pairs of LAXs as well, as I wear the outside heels of my shoes prematurely compared to the rest of the sole due to my gait. It may help add some more time before having to recraft the entire sole.

    How does these compare to the Badlands model (which are great)?

    The Badlands shoe is one of the most comfortable Allen Edmonds shoes I have worn. These appear to be aimed at the same wearer and for the same purpose. How are they alike and how are these different?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Hello, Thank you for your inquiry! The Lax derby is part of our road warrior collection. The LAX is designed for comfortable and durability. Also, it has a removable heel and Madison XL sole. The Badlands are similar in style and in comfort to the LAX derby. -AE Consumer Care Dept.

    do the lax derby shoes have non marking soles?

    Asked by: michael
    I have not experienced any marking over these last few years of owning two pair. They may "squeak" on certain surfaces, but I haven't noticed any marks.
