  • Care

    We believe a great pair of shoes or boots is always a solid long-term investment. To keep your favorite footwear in top form for years or even decades to comes, use our 4 Step Shoe Care Process and these essential products.

    1. Clean

    Start by applying Saddle Soap with a Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth to remove stains and dirt from the uppers and bring up the leather's natural oils.

    2. Polish

    Next, use a Horsehair Dauber to treat your footwear with Cream Polish which renews the color and luster of leather. Any time you want to achieve a truly glossy, high shine, you should instead apply Carnauba Wax Polish.

    3. Dress

    Restore the color and surface of the leather on the heels and soles using Heel Dressing.

    4. Protect

    Leather Lotion keeps uppers soft, supple and hydrated while a Horsehair Shine Brush is perfect for buffing your shoes to the desired shine. As a last step, spray on Water Protector to guard against harmful moisture and spills and use a Leather Dopp Kit to keep all your care products organized.

    Relaxed Fit

    The relaxed fit has added space in the toe box. This extra room allows for thicker socks and foot expansion that occurs at the end of the day or during a long flight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scotch Grain Leather Casual Toe Boot - VERY comfortable As I mentioned in my other chukka boot reviews, I've just purchased these and haven't worn them much. But right out of the box, 9.5D is a perfect, very comfortable fit(no feeling that I need to break them in, but it will just get better). I'm not familiar with all the lasts, but this 1757 last has more of a rounded toe than the Williamsburg or Venturechuck. I bought it for fall/winter/early spring weather, anticipating days of rain, ice, snow or cold. The pebbled leather(a.k.a. Scotch leather)look adds interest, without diminishing the casual look. I wasn't at first keen on the rounder toe, but I have 2 other Chukka boot styles now, so it's ok. I've never owned a leather Chukka boot of this quality with a Vibram sole, but they're very nice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boot, all day comfort! I own two pairs of these boots. I spend 8 - 10 hours per day on my feet. The shoes provide all day comfort. The last works for my feet and is a great fit. May be different for you. Fit is roomy, but not to much. Soles offer good grip and are wearing well. Boot goes with business casual and jeans, too. I’m really happy with my purchase.

    Are these boots too warm for summer wear?

    The arctic soles are appealing for icy winter weather, but are the boots too hot for summer wear?

    How exactly does AE do the math to give this boot a 4-star Rating?

    As I read through the reviews, I could not help but notice the various 1-star and 2-star reviews discussing the separation of the sole from the upper in a short period of time. While there are some 5-star and 4-star reviews too, I find it difficult to believe the average is ~4-stars as indicated in the upper right where you would select the color and size of the boot.
    Asked by: Wynn
    The four ratings are based upon the average out of all of our reviews. Please note, that they are a small batch of reviews that are visible on our site.

    How dressie is this boot? If I wear wool socks, should I oder a size up? How dressie is the Higgins Mill boot verse this chukka boot?

    Asked by: Chris
    I wear a size 11 eee park ave dress shoe and a 9.5 eee alpine chukka. I have a 10 eee Higgins Mill that is still too big The 65 last fit of the park ave is apples and oranges to the Higgins mill and alpine chukka last. I did not buy any chukka other than the USA made alpine because I know how they fit... some AE chukkas are made overseas. I just received a 9.5 D Ranger boot and it was very tight. There wasn’t a wide option available for that boot at the time so I’m returning and trying a 10 D This is wearing cotton or medium to lightweight wool socks with boots and dress socks with shoes
