Details & Overview

Acheson Tassel Dress Loafer



We named this shoe for a long-time friend and supporter of Allen Edmonds, because you can depend on it no matter who you are or your personal style. Its flexibility begins with the lower vamp and tapered construction, allowing it to fit all manner of feet comfortably and securely. The 2042 last construction also creates a sleek design that makes this shoe perfect for either the modern guy who’s looking to go sockless or the traditional guy who wants to wear them with socks and business attire. Finished with the finest calfskin leather, this agreeable slip-on might just have folks changing the saying “comrade in arms” to “friend in footwear.”

Product Care

Allen Edmonds Shoe Care

When caring for your calfskin, use Allen Edmonds Leather Lotion to remove surface residue and to keep leather soft and pliable. To achieve a fine luster, wipe shoes with a damp cloth and allow them to air dry at room temperature. Then, apply a coat of Allen Edmonds Premium Shoe Polish with a cloth or horsehair dauber and allow to air dry.

Our new Dark Chili and Oxblood burnished leathers can be cleaned using a damp cloth to remove dirt and any residue. Follow by using a soft cloth to apply our Allen Edmonds Saddle Soap which cleans all smooth leather shoes while restoring the leather's natural oils.

Further details and videos are available on our Caring for Your Shoes page.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Rather poor quality Style is great but quality of leather and lack of sheen made the shoe look cheap. Not like a pair of expensive shoes. Maddie 55

Rated 2 out of 5 by from What last? I wonder why the picture of this shoe on the AE website looks so different from the shoes I received. It is described as low vamp on the website; certainly want not low vamp in the box I received. Is this a simple error; or, is this a deceptive trade practice?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice looking shoe, so-so quality I really like the look of the shoe. It did take a while to break in but it now feels like a good fit. I was disappointed in the quality though. On the instep of each shoe it has a little separation in the sole. You can only see it from the side (when my foot is up on my opposite leg). It's not enough to go through the hassle of sending the shoes back, it's just not the normal high quality I'm used to from AE.

Ask & Answer

This shoe looks more like the old Footjoy tassel of years ago. I wear a true 12.5 AA or 13 AAA. Does the 2042 last come in either of these sizes?

This pattern seems to have a shorter vamp and heavier Krohn seam than the Grayson also, which I prefer. Am I wrong? Thanks.
Asked by: Dudley
The Addison tassel loafer is limited to the sizes and widths offered online. This style is constructed on the 2042 Last, whith raised moc stiching on the vamp and foxing (heel), and a wheeling detail along the welt. The 2042 is a sleeker, more fashion-forward look than our classic slip-ons. This last has a soft rounded toe, full forepart and tapered back section to promote an enhanced fit for our slip-on styles. The Grayson is constructed on the 97 last which is the best fit for the average foot. The 97 last is one of Allen Edmonds early lasts, and has a soft, slightly pointed toe. It lays flatter in the toe area for a classic American look. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

Do you guys restock?

I've really been wanting to buy this shoe in 6.5 D but every time I come to check there is no D and every shoe I like from AE never has D. Will or do you guys ever restock? Just wondering, thanks in advance.
Asked by: Mike
Thank you for your inquiry. Most of our styles made in a size 6.5 are made in an E width. Please call 800-235-2348 to discuss availability of 6.5D shoes.

Does the Acheson fit true to Brannock size?

I like the look of the Acheson more than the Grayson, but I'm concerned about fit. Does the Acheson run true to Brannock size (like the Grayson) or is it longer, like AE's 65-last shoes? I would go in for a fitting, but the brick-and-mortar AE stores never carry my size (6.5E or 6EEE, depending).
Asked by: Bob
It is difficult to recommend a size through this channel and guarantee a proper fit because each style can fit differently based on the contours of your feet. Typically, we recommend trying the same size you usually wear in the same type of style and exchange if necessary based on how comfortable you feel in the shoes. All of our shoes are the same length from the heel to the ball of the foot when comparing the same size. It is vitally important to visit an Allen Edmonds retail store or retail partner for a professional fitting to increase your chances of being fit correctly for each last and style. However, keep in mind that products purchased on may be returned at any time, as long as the item is unused and accompanied by the packing slip. Trying the shoes on a carpeted surface will help prevent scuffing on the sole and keep the shoes in returnable condition.

What is the difference in the Acheson and the Grayson models

Asked by: JRC6875
The difference is in the last. Also the Acheson has a foxtail treatment on the heel/Back quarter of the shoe. My suggestion is to try them on to see which you prefer.

A little confused...

I finally got to see this shoe in person and I guess I'm a little puzzled with its introduction. I almost couldn't tell it apart from the Grayson until I literally held them in my hands side-by-side. The Grayson is built on the 97-last - I feel like the 97 is probably going to work for the large majority of people; they may need to adjust the length and width to get a good fit but overall I think it would work. The 2042 is a much more specific type of fit that I bet probably would not work for the majority of people. On top of that, the Grayson just looked more dressy/sleek due to the tapered toe. I'm rambling, but I just don't get it.

It’s not uncommon for Allen Edmonds to offer similar styles that are made on different lasts. This allows us to accommodate most foot shapes and sizes. For example, the MacNeil and the McGregor are both long-wingtip styles, but the MacNeil is made on the 97 last and the McGregor is made on the 65 last. The 97 last is the best fit for the average foot, but most customers prefer the long and narrow look of the 65 last. For this reason, we continue to offer styles in lasts that have an elongated and sleek look. The 2042 last complements the 65 last which is our most popular last. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

Is the Acheson meant to compliment the Grayson similar to the La Salle complimenting the Del Ray?

I notice that the Acheson is very similar to the Grayson with a lower vamp and stitching down the heel and rear quarters. Do you plan to keep both shoes in your catalog? I personally love the Graysons and the fact that they are made in a full size run which accommodates my very narrow foot.
Asked by: Anonymous
They are similar styles, however the Acheson and the Grayson are constructed on different lasts so each loafer has a unique fit. The Acheson is made on the 2042 which is a new slip-on last has a sleeker aesthetic, meaning is it slightly narrower and has a more chiseled look. The Grayson is made on the 97 last which is one of Allen Edmonds early lasts, and has a soft, slightly pointed toe. It lays flatter in the toe area for a classic American look. The decision to keep or discontinue any style is generally based on the popularity of the shoes, customer feedback, or sales performance. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

What is the difference between this shoe and Grayson?

Asked by: Eagleman
Different last and the foxtail treatment on the heal. I suggest you try them on and compare how they feel and look.
