  • 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.

    Cornwallis Dress Oxford is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 284.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice looking product. I had to return the shoe because it wasn't wide enough. I've been searching for this shoe for years. Unfortunately, the D width wasn't as comfortable as the E width. I own many pairs of Allen Edmonds shoes. I pair my shoes with what I'm wearing. This shoe in black would have completed my business wear. I see this shoe has very sleek, clean and classy that makes a subtle statement.

    What type of leather is used and how long will it take to break in?

    Asked by: Delmoney
    The Cornwallist is made using full-grain calfskin. Our shoes should be comfortable right out of the box as long as you have the proper fit. The break-in of the cork footbed typically takes a few days. Thank you for your question!

    Why don't you make this shoe in "C" widths? I have previously tried this shoe in a "B" width (size 9) and it was just a little too tight on my foot.

    I have a pair of AEs that I bought 30 years ago, and they are beginning to wear out (I didn't take good care of them the first few years I had them). Are the lasts different now than 30 years ago, or would the new ones need to be stretched out?
    Asked by: RPM53
    We're sorry that this style is not made in a C width. If the B is too snug, we suggest trying the D width. Alternately, we do offer other select styles in the C width. You can find them here: Regarding the lasts, in the past few decades there are lasts that have been discontinued, new ones have been added, and others that are still offered. If you know the last on your shoes, you can filter by last on our website to see if we have other styles offered in that last. If you require assistance selecting a style, please feel free to call us at 877-817-7615. We'd be happy to help!

    What size should I order for the Cornwallis if i am a 10.5 EEE in the Park and 5th Ave? Will they fit the same?

    Asked by: Djw
    Hi Daniel! Each style can fit differently based on the contours of your feet, so it’s difficult to recommend a size via Bazaarvoice and guarantee a proper fit. Typically, we recommend trying the same size you usually wear and judging the fit based on how comfortable you feel in the shoes. If possible, we’d love to have you visit an Allen Edmonds retail store or one of our retail partners for a professional fitting. Our associates are trained to help you find the right fit for the various lasts and styles we offer.
