    Ask & Answer
    Alpine Derby Shoe with Vibram Arctic Grip Rubber Sole is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have a wide foot. It works. I live in Florida, so this pair was bought with memories of a cheap trip to Paris that featured their biggest snowstorm in years, enough to cause a bit of disruption and wet feet. It's a pair of shoes for winter vacations, with the most sophisticated available sole for wet ice. I wondered about the 2321 last. It turns out to be broad at the front of the foot, giving the shoe a broader look at the toe than nearly all Allen Edmonds dress shoes (Bond Street for example) and a bit more room for heavier socks. The overall length of the shoe is very similar to its more slender-tipped counterparts of the same size. The appearance of the Alpine Weatherproof Derby is simple, doesn't approach the elegance of many of the dress shoes, though the Vibram sole is highly distinctive. I expect it to be an effective walking shoe (my current go-to is Ace).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good shoe but watch your size. I usually wear a size 10 D in a street shoe, and a 10 1/2 D in an athletic shoe. But the size 10D for the Alpine was too roomy for my right foot, altho the lefty seemed okay. Solution is to try on a 9 1/2 D, now the midfoot is comfortably snug and my feet do not slip around inside the shoe as I walk. I put both the left and right 9 1/2 on a shoe stretcher and that solved my problems completely, that gave me just a skoosh more room in the midfoot which makes the shoe very comfortable. And my toes still have adequate wiggle room. Moral of the story: try 'em on in the store, the size is just a number, wear the shoes that fit you best and don't assume that every size 10 will always work for you.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Way too big. I bought 2 pair of these shoes: a black pair I paid full price for, and a brown pair that were seconds. The black shoes are great. I couldn’t be happier with them. They fit perfectly. They’re very comfortable. I like them a lot. The brown shoes are 2 sizes too big. Both pair are marked the same size inside. I gave the brown pair to my son. He wears a much bigger shoe than me but he says they’re big on him too. While I recommend Allen Edmonds often, I wouldn’t recommend this particular shoe as a second. The size is way off.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from These were not as dressy as I had thought. I had thought these would be a little dressier. The rubber soles with the bright colors on the bottom were just not what I expected for a dress shoe.

    Vibram Arctic Grip Rubber Sole permormance

    Will this sole perform well in soft or slushy snow as well as on wet ice? Here in the North East we get lots of both... Don't want to find that it's great when it's really cold and icy but dangerous when it's just chilly with fresh or slushy snow. And why do they specify Wet Ice....?
    Asked by: Northendboston
    The Vibram Artic grip rubber sole will be able to handle ice and slushy conditions.

    Can these be recrafted with the Arctic Grip sole?

    When the time comes, can these be recrafted with the Arctic Grip sole or must an inferior substitute sole be chosen?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    If you decide to recraft this style, the same type sole will be put back on the shoes. -AE Consumer Care Dept.
