    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: Protect your shoes from dirt, rain and snow and enhance the shine and color with our Speed Polish.

    STEP 4: Apply our Leather Lotion to protect the heels and edges of your shoes.

    *For camo printed leather, simply rub our Leather Lotion onto leather with our Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth as needed and wipe smudges or dirt away with a damp cloth.

    Relaxed Fit

    The relaxed fit has added space in the toe box. This extra room allows for thicker socks and foot expansion that occurs at the end of the day or during a long flight.

    Porter Derby Sneaker is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 75.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great quality, sharp & stylish. But fit is a bit wonky (read painful) so design could use some improvements. Personal modifications may help. I wish I could give these shoes a 5 star rating, but I am going to have to go with 3 stars. These shoes are really nice looking (have received compliments) and are very high quality. Great pebbled leather and build quality, great arch support and nice classic styling. Other casual leather sneaker-style shoes (e.g. Fryes) do not have as much substance as these in terms of tread, stitching, support, etc. So nice job AE. However, similar to other reviewers, the overall "fit" for these shoes in practice is a bit wonky. For starters, the rough leather at the heel on the inside and the lack of padding in that area is real murder on the heels. I wore these a number of times at work and was just about ready to ditch them due to this issue- hot spot leading to blisters and not from lack of break-in. A Goodwill donation or eBay was basically what I was thinking as I kept them beyond 90 days grace period. The shoe size was not the issue (note to AE Customer Service). I have worn AE shoes for decades and I know how to fit for size. They felt good in the store, but were just oddly painful after numerous wearings. They just tore at my heels and I was ready to give up. However, I modified them a bit and now I really like them. What I did was add a simple heel pad in the back (the stick-on kind that you get at Walgreens that go up and around the back part of the heel). I also threaded the laces down by one grommet from the top. The pad additions keep the rough leather from rubbing so much and lacing down by one off the top helped keep the shoe from pressing back into the heel. Try this if you are having the heel pain issues that seem to be common. YMMV. These shoes also do require a break-in period. The hard leather band between the leather and the rubber sole is distinctive but needs to loosen up. So give them a chance if initial wearings are disappointing. For a future redesign, suggest that AE pad the back heel area a bit or make the leather smooth like other brands do to keep from tearing into heel. Nice shoes overall, but beware of this issue. Wish I could buy two more pairs in different colors, but having to "customize" these to get them to work has scared me off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE BEST SHOE I'VE EVER OWNED!!!! This shoe is amazing. It looks great with jeans and a sports coat or shorts and a t-shirt. I have never received more compliments about my foot ware as I have from this shoe. It looks very Hamptons, very high end and is an attention grabber. I've been complimented by a dozen women about how much like like it and what an eye catcher it is. The one issue is sort of obvious - they're white! They get grimy, and can start losing their luster. At that point you just buy another pair. Couldn't recommend this one more!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Porter Derby proved to be very comfortable, but it doesn’t take heavy walking well. I purchased a few AE shoes the first time I walked into the NY 43rd ST (awesome staff), and walked out with the Porter Derby’s on my feet, the next seven days, I spent them as a tourist, walking an average of 40 blocks a day, the sneakers took a day to break in (band aid to the heel three days) so no problem there, but one thing I noticed, that I have never experienced before with any brand of sneakers is that, the edge of the outsole at the heel-cup started to peel away, and remains the only negative thing I can say about the sneakers. I will recognize that I did put them through more walking in a short amount of time, than I would ever do to any shoe or sneaker in my collection, due to the rotation in normal use. I did purchase two of them, and will buy a third soon.

    Why won't AE make sneakers in wide sizes?

    Asked by: Scott
    The Porter sneakers are designed with a two footbed system. Medium width customers may use the shoes with both insoles in the shoes. Wide width customers may remove the top insole and we have a cushioned footbed cemented in the shoe for flexible fitting. Feel free to contact us again if you have additional questions!

    Is sizing comoarable with different Allen Edmonds shoes

    I wear a 9.5 in the Park Avenue, will the 9.5 in the Porter Derby be a comparable fit?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    It should. My Porter Derby is the same size as my MCallister, and the MCallister and Park Avenue are made on the same last.

    Which last are these manufactured in?

    Asked by: Nick
    The Porter collection is not constructed on our traditional lasts. It is vitally important to visit an Allen Edmonds retail store or retail partner for a professional fitting to increase your chances of finding a proper fit. If that's not possible, typically we recommend trying the same size you usually wear and judge the fit based on how comfortable you feel in the shoes. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
