    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.

    Strand Cap-Toe Oxford is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Painful to Wear This is my first experience with an AE shoe. First, this shoe is, unquestionably, an amazing-looking shoe by far. I love the navy color and fashionable design. Unfortunately, this was definitely the most painful shoe I have ever had the unfortunate pleasure of wearing since my youth. I am disappointed to say that I would not purchase this specific shoe for $20 on clearance at Marshalls if presented the opportunity. Sorry AE, but my feet are still trying to recover from the debilitating experience an entire month later.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Width runs small This shoe doesn’t run as wide as other Allen Edmond shoes I’ve purchased.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great look and high quality shoe I bought the Strands to switch between these and my Neumoks. Since I was accustomed to the soft leather of the Neumoks, I thought the leather on these shoes were a little tough and uncomfortable. It took a bit to break in and the edging by my ankle kept digging in, which also wasn't super comfortable. After the break-in period, they started to feel more comfortable and I like the look and feel. They can't compare to the soft leather from the Neumoks but I'm glad I have these as my other option.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent craftsmanship A lot has been made in the online forums about the current state of quality at AE. This is the fourth or fifth pair I've bought that the company has made under the new owners. I continue to be very happy with the fit and craftsmanship of the shoes. The leather is just as good as always, the cobbler constructed the shoe well, and the service was good. It does appear the company is using a slightly lower grade leather on the soles. Other than that, these are just as good as shoes I bought from AE 10 years ago or longer.

    What belt do you suggest for the Navy shoes?

    Asked by: BC
    We recommend pairing it with a dark navy belt or a black belt since it had black details (burnishing, sole edge, and laces). We currently do not offer belts in midnight navy. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    AE Strand - Midnight Navy Polish

    What Allen Edmonds Polish do you recommend for the beautiful Midnight Navy leather? I do not see a "navy" color polish. Thank you
    Asked by: Going Up
    We recommend using the Neutral Premium Shoe Polish or the Neutral Carnauba Wax polish to add a higher shine. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    Is it possible to get dainite soles instead of leather?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    The Midnight Navy Strand and Cornwallis are Limited Edition styles and they are not eligible for custom orders. In the future, however when the shoes need to be Recrafted, you can request a sole conversion with the Standard or Prestige Recrafting packages. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
