  • 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.

    Bartlett Cap-Toe Oxford is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 71.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EE Great for wide feet! Excellent color and the EE and 201 last is great for wider feed. The strand oxfords are just too slim IMO. These shoes looked great for my wedding back in 2019. Bring back the WALNUT Bartletts!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Posh CapToe These dress cap toes are built with the top grade leather that does not crease on my foot. I have 5 pair from the Independence Collection and one of my favorites to wear with a suit. This shoe is a bargain for the sale price. The sole and heels on this shoe are very comfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fully Satisfactory. These are my first pair of fine quality shoes, and as such, I had no idea what to expect, especially after becoming kind of comfortable with what is available for less than fourty dollars. Needless to say, I've been blown away by the quality of even second hand Allen Edmonds. Comfort in a dressier shoe was totally unexpected. I've found every excuse to wear these as often as possible, just because of how comfortable they are. For shoes that, by all reports and the quality I can physically feel, will be with me for decades? Well worth even the original price.

    How does the 65 last compare to the 201 last ?

    My husband only wears Allen Edmonds. He has at least ten pairs and they all seem to be the 65 last.
    Asked by: Dee
    I have shoes from both the 65 and 201 Lasts. The 201 is a slightly longer toe box and a little wider in width but has a more chiseled look compared to shoes on the 65 Last (eg Park Ave., 5th Ave., Strand). I have the Bartlett’s built on the 201 Last and they fit me well. I have a slightly high arch. Hope this helps.

    How do these shoes hold up against the rain? I know these are not waterproof.

    Which shoes from the independence collection hold up pretty good against rain and the elements?
    Asked by: Ramiro
    I used mink oil to break them in before the first polishing and while not waterproof, they are holding up well so far. Just fyi, i used the mink oil first then a cream wax and then then 2 coats of a paste wax to protect the shoe

    Differences between Bartlett and Strand?

    Please help me understand the differences between the Bartlett and the Strand. I’m specifically interested in any variation in color between the brown versions of each shoe. Also, is the Bartlett a noticeably longer and more narrow shoe? Thank you.
    Asked by: SDA4
    To me, Bartlett’s are an upgrade to the Strands in the leather quality upper with the soft lamb skin lining. I haven’t put the same color Bartlett’s next to their Strand cousin. However different leathers do accept dyes differently. So there may be variations in colors. Importantly, there’s two shoes are built on different lasts and fit my feet differently. The Strands are built on the 65 Last and the Bartlett’s on the 201 Last. As you pointed out the toe box on the Bartlett’s are a little longer than the Strands. The Bartlett’s seem to feel great on my first wearing. The 5th Avenues take 4 or 5 wearing to settle in to my feet. I have a slightly high instep. Also the 65 last shoes seem to run a little narrower than the 201 last shoes. Hope this helps.

    Will the Bartlett age more gracefully with its higher quality calfskin compared to the Strand?

    I prefer the brown tone of the Strand, which is more espresso, than the Bartlett, which is more dark chocolate. However, I know that the leather in the Bartlett is much higher quality. So if the Bartlett will look much better in 2 or 3 years, that will impact my buying decision.
    Asked by: Tim88
    Styles may age differently even if using the same type of leather and it is dependent on many different factors, including but not limited to amount of wear, light exposure, level of care and types of care products used, climate and weather, storage conditions, moisture, the area of the hide where each component was cut, tanning batches, etc. Also, leather may lighten or darken overtime due to the nature of the material. We cannot predict how any style will age for each individual as each pair will be unique and acquire its own character overtime. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    Are the soles of the independence collection still "another iron" thicker than soles of AE's main collection (i.e. regular calfskin strands)

    The 2011 introduction youtube video for the Independence collection mentions a number of nice details such as: thicker soles, wheeling, softest leather. Are these same upgrades still in place or have they changed a bit over the years? Thank you for being such a wonderful team & company ---proud to wear your excellent American made products.
    Asked by: AEAA350
    Thank you for your inquiry. To complement our newest sleeker styles, we've updated the Independence Collection to have a single oak two-tone sole with the wheeling details for a more refined look. The rest is still the same, we still use our premium calfskin and ultra soft lambskin linings. They styles have changed slightly but retain the same quality materials and craftsmanship. We sincerely appreciate your feedback, loyalty, and support. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    The 201 last fits me better than the 65. Does AE plan to make this shoe in oxblood? If not, can I order a pair?

    Asked by: Grant
    There are currently no plans to expand the color offering of the Bartlett style. We do not offer custom leather special orders at this time. We suggest taking a look at the Hopkinson or the Jefferson 2.0. These styles are both constructed on the 201 last and they are offered in Merlot which is similar to Oxblood. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    Please help me with color matching the Burnished Brown Bartlett.

    1. What color polish should I use to preserve/attend the handsome finish of this shoe? 2. Which belts do you offer that will most easily match this shoe? Thank you in advance for your assistance! I own: Hopkinson, Merlot Jefferson 2.0, Merlot Bartlett, Burnished Brown Dalton, Mahogany(hand finished)
    Asked by: JK
    We recommend using the Dark Brown Premium Shoe Polish when polishing this style. The Manistee belt or the Dupont belt in Brown will coordinate with this style nicely. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
