    Leeds 2.0 Derby Shoe with Dainite Rubber Sole is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Versatile Shoe Grained leather is beautiful, supple, yet stands up to the elements. Great for casual or office or non-extreme hiking. Constructed from a single piece of leather. Love the storm welt and Dainite soles. Only thing that could make it better is a bellows tongue. Too bad it’s being discontinued, but I have my pair and I’m confident they’ll last many years.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Shoe but pebbled grain should be better I love the Leeds 2.0. Great traditional and classic show design. I own a pair in burgundy shell and love them! The pebbled grain leather in this Leeds 2.0 however seems a lesser quality compared to other pebbled grain shoes in the market. The leather is hard and the pebbling very, very dense. It almost has a "plasticky" feel and look. I heartily suggest you reach into your previous designs for the San Marco. I own 2 pair of those, 1 in black and 1 in brown. The pebble grained leather is more supple and looks higher quality. I also own a pair of the Tobywings whose pebbled grain leather is similar to the San Marco.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Glaring Blemishes Ordered 2 pairs of Allen Edmond, first time customer, left extremely disappointed. The first pair were Leeds 2.0, the left shoe has a sun spot faded section where the brown has faded to a unsightly light tan color. Bought these knowing I was supporting an American classic. I had high expectations and was let down to say the least. Would not recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Business Casual Shoe Very well made shoe. Comfortable right out of the box. I really like the rubber sole. I do a significant amount of travel for work and was looking for a versatile pair of shoes I could wear all day for several days in a row and that would be comfortable. These are a great choice. Also have to commend AE on their customer service. This is the fourth pair I have ordered via their website and AE is extremely responsive to any issues, exchanges or problems.

    LEEDS 2.0 Derby Dainite vs McAllester Dainite

    I have McAllester Dainite in size 8.5 D. Should I get the same size in the Leeds 2.0 Derby ? Thanks
    Asked by: Ati
    The Leeds and McAllister are built on different lasts. Therefore sizing may be different for each. I suggest you read the description of each last on the AE website before making your purchase. Better yet, if their is an AE store in your area, , go there for an evaluation.

    Scuff marks

    I got some scuff marks on the toe area and in my haste to try to buff them I accidentally used the heel and sole dressing. I quickly removed it, but now that area is dull and looks terrible. Can this be repaired by using the correct shoe polish and buffing the shoes?
    Asked by: fl_dreamin
    We recommend contacting our Recrafting department at recrafting@allenedmonds.com or 1-877-495-5564 for assistance.

    Other than the sole, is the same as the Gridiron? They look quite simlilar. Thanks

    Asked by: Anonymous
    The patterns are very similar and the leather used is the same. The main differences are that the Leeds 2.0 doesn't have a Poron insole, it has tone-on-tone thread, the stitching pattern is slightly different, and it has a Dainite rubber sole. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    What shoe polish should be used for the Leeds 2.0 Brown Country Grain

    Also, what should be used for edges
    Asked by: Rex
    I've used the brown edge dressing and it seems to be working out well color wise. I tried the neutral shoe polish and I didn't like it. I tried to remove the polish with the leather lotion and I think I got most of it off. The neutral shoe polish is actually a white color so if you look close, you could actually see small whitish spots on the brown. I will be buying dark brown as recommended by AE and trying that soon.

    What color polish should I use?

    Would dark brown premium polish be the most ideal for these Leeds?
    Asked by: Jeff S
    Dark brow in the can or dark brow premium are both good but mine have developed lighter brown areas that require dark brown shoe cream to correct. The premium polish is a polish shoe cream blend but it still requires the cream to get the color evened out. I clean them and then use the cream and finish up with polish.

    What color heel and sole edge dressing should be used?

    There is either a brown or chili section (the welt?) above the Dainite soles, as well a section of the heel.
    Asked by: Broadus
    Due to the special inks, dyes and leather sole combinations used by the cobblers during the finishing process, the edge of the sole tends to be quite unique when the shoe leaves the factory. The Heel and Sole Edge Dressing we offer will provide as close of a match as possible but most may not be able to achieve a factory finish at home as this product is intended for quick touch ups. The Neutral dressing does not contain any pigment, but will still minimize the appearance of scuffs, the Chili will add a reddish brown tone to the edge of the sole, and the Brown will simply add a brown tone. In fact, either product, or a combination of them, can be used on the Leeds 2.0, but the color you choose will depend upon your desired result. We suggest trying the Brown dressing to complement the Brown leather styles.

    I require orthotic insoles. Are the Leeds 2.0 insoles removable?

    Asked by: Inspector 3636
    No. The insoles are not removable in these shoes. But they are not stitched in either. You might be able to cut them out without much trouble but it could also be an expensive experiment. Good luck.
