    Care Instructions

    Cordovan leather requires different care than calfskin due to its unique properties. Brush and wipe regularly and apply cream occasionally to protect the leather and maintain its rich color.

    Regular Maintenance:

    Regularly, brush the leather with our Horsehair Shine Brush or wipe with our Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth.

    To Protect and Restore Color, Follow These Steps:

    STEP 1: Wipe your shoe down with a damp cloth and allow to dry.

    STEP 2: Using your Horsehair Dauber, apply a small amount of our Cordovan Care Cream in a circular motion.

    STEP 3: While the cream is still slightly wet, take our Horsehair Shine Brush and brush back and forth, heating the cream and leather. This allows the natural oils to move to the surface to bring out the leather's natural shine.

    STEP 4: Next, use the soft side of our Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth to buff the shoe until the surface is no longer tacky. Often, some excess cream will transfer onto the cloth, which is normal.

    STEP 5: Take our Heel Dressing applicator and press against the edge of the heel and sole.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Park Avenue Shell Cordovan I really love this shell cordovan Park Avenue! For one, the material will last for quite a long time and second this is a style that will never go out!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shoes but not perfect for price The shoes fit great and I like them. I won them in a sales contest that I could pick any shoe up to 400$ and I picked this. However even though I love the shoes they came with songs to both the leather and the head along with discoloration. I would not have thought there would have been any damage.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Shoe with Quality Craftsmanship I own several pairs of Allen Edmonds shoes, and I have to say that you get what you pay for. The quality and craftsmanship is superior when it comes to dress shoes. I definitely recommend Allen Edmonds to anyone looking for a quality dress shoe.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from New coffee colored PA's wider in the heel Been wearing Park Avenues for decades---always fit right out of the box. Loved the new brown/coffee color. But went through three different pairs---all were much inconsistently wider in the heel area. Can't wear them anymore. Very disappointed. Either poor quality control or AE has changed sizing. AE store owners baffled.

    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!

    Matching belt

    I purchased the dark chili Park Avenue cap-toes and a chili burnished calf wide dress belt, which I assume to be the closest match. The colors are similar but not exact. Is there a belt color that’s a closer match?
    Asked by: Ryan
    Thank you for reachinig out to us. We would recommend the Manistee belt in Dark Chili.

    Why are my new dull in sheen?

    I was so excited to get a new pair of high quality shoes, did some research on line and liked the look of the Park Avenue Cap-Toe Oxfords. The shoes shown on your site have a shiny sheen to them. I was willing to pay up but when I opened the box the shoes had a matte sheen. Not classy, more casual. Is this normal or did I get a bad pair? I ordered through Nordstrom. I just want to make sure before making a decision. If this is the case, I will go back to Clarks or look elsewhere. Thanks
    Asked by: Tom
    Every pair of brand-new shoes will be dull and lack color. The longer they sit around the drier they will become. Most show room shoes will have a high wax polish. While it looks good they can easily crack and does not allow the leather to breath and can cause the leather to become brittle over time. Every new shoe no matter what company they come from I always have the same cleaning and polishing process I apply before I wear them. 1. Wash with saddle soap 2. Oil twice with a mild oil 3. Polish twice with a soft polish 4. Polish twice with a wax 5. Apply a sole guard oil 6. On formal dress shoes only, apply a mirror shine on toe box If you have never done this try o do it to one shoe and not the other. The results will be staggering.
