    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.

    Strandmok Cap-Toe Oxford with Dainite Rubber Sole is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 173.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Incomplete Shoes :/ I ordered a pair of Strandmok’s and they weren’t even complete! How did they pass QC?!? The welt isn’t completely sewn to the shoe and there’s a noticeable gap. Also one heel appears to be pressed in and the blemishes in the leather are like nothing I’ve seen, outside of seconds. AE is one of my top choices for shoes and my closet has more than a dozen to prove it, however this is not what I’ve received in the past. I have this same pair in brown and they are amazing. I’m looking for AE to send a complete pair ASAP.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad QC, not bad enough to return I ordered this pair along with a tan suede pair. I made sure I was NOT ordering f2’s but somehow I seem to have gotten a barely acceptable pair. The welt is not lined up where it meets itself on one shoe. The upper next to the laces looks like someone ran a little texture roller across the middle and the sole is slightly discolored around the outer edge on one side of one shoe. The outside heel of the left shoe also has a gouge or smashed line running through it. I’m pretty sure I can fix the sole color as it’s probably just an uneaten sealer of some kind but the other three issues aren’t so easy. That said, from a distance they aren’t noticeable so I’ll keep them but I’m very disappointed especially after my last pair of AE which were pristine. The tan suede pair are a completely separate issue and will be getting returned.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed, but hopeful! I just purchased my first pair of brand new AE Strandmock's online from AE. Purchased on sale and couldn't wait to get them! Received them yesterday; one shoe had 2 gouges (one about 3/4") on the upper and a large, black mark (dye?) on the blue sole at the front of the toe for the whole world to see! The other shoe had a welt that was mismatched at the seam, with one end being about 1/8" higher than the opposite end. Since this is my first purchase from AE, it seems these should have been sold as "seconds," but since I'm not familiar with the normal product, I can't really say. Once I recovered from the extreme disappointment, I waited on hold with the company for 54 minutes, listening to a shortened version of The Police's, "Sending Out an SOS". Once I was finally rescued by CS, I was informed by Jay that, had I been placing an order, it would have likely been 5-10 minutes; but that the computer automatically determines where you go in the queue based upon your purpose for calling. I was ever-so-politely advised of how to return the product, but was told the timing of my refund was up in the air due to Covid 19. Because I love these shoes, and really want to love AE, I ordered a duplicate pair at my own expense, put the return in the mail, and will await the arrival of both; the second pair and my refund, with fear and trembling. Not a great first experience but I'm hoping to stay the course and be greatly satisfied by buying American made and supporting this great company of which I have heard so much about and purchased great used products online!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Close to perfect, but AE stepped on themselves Styling and fit. These shoes deserve a 5. But and as someone who owns a lot of AE's. One F------ shoe bag? Then you charge me for the second one? Regarding finish, the shoes are not fully lined. I did not realise that when I purchased them. The lack of a full leather lining, separates these shoes from being close to perfect. John

    Are the shoe care instructions correct for the black strandmoks with chromexcel?

    Reading the Q&A, it appears the recommendation is to simply brush these and perhaps apply leather lotion. I gather brown heel dressing is appropriate too. However, the care instructions listed with the shoes are very different. Can you please advise which is correct?
    Asked by: Justin
    We apologize for the confusion in the description. Chromexcel is known to be self-polishing due to the high blend of oils infused in the hide. The appearance of most scuffs can be minimized by rubbing the leather with your fingers. Simply brushing with a horsehair brush or using a soft cloth will warm up the oils and dyes and redistribute them throughout those areas. Shoe polish can be used to spot treat if necessary, but typically it isn't needed. For this reason we suggest Leather Lotion. If you have other questions, feel free to contact us again.

    Can I get new soles/heels for these?

    Replacement Blue Laces Available?

    Is it possible to order extra sets of the unique blue laces (the identical ones delivered with the Black Strandmok Cap-toe Oxford) at the time of original purchase? I only see black & brown laces offered elsewhere on the AE website.
    Asked by: goodbot
    Very disappointed to hear the blue laces are not available for these shoes. This is a huge miss for Allen Edmond. I was just about to buy the shoes but won't until I can find the blue laces.

    StrandmokCap-Toe Oxford with Dainite Rubber Sole - Recommended Care Products

    I purchased brown Strandmok Cap-Toe Oxford with Dainite Rubber Sole shoes which I love and want to purchase the shoe care products for them. Could you please recommend which products by COLOR I need to purchase? Cream Polish - Brown? Speed Polish - Brown? Heel Dressing - ???? I just don't want to order the wrong colors, especially the Heel Dressing Thank you Ed Pack
    Asked by: Ed
    Thank you for your question! The Brown Strandmok #4027 was designed with a unique 'brush-off' finish that reveals the gold tone color underneath with normal wear. This type of finish will "brush off" and it is 100% intentional. Shoe polish will not cover these marks and if used it will not match the finish. The finish will permanently be removed in the areas for a worn, casual look. The Leather Lotion is recommended to keep the leather moisturized, soft and supple. If you would liek to add some shine, you may use Neutral Carnauba Wax Polish. To clean the edge of the sole and the heel, you may use a lightly damp cloth. To cover scuff marks on the welt edge or leather portion of the heel, you may use Heel Dressing in Neutral. Feel free to contact us again if you have additional questions!
