    Ask & Answer
    McTavish Oxford Wingtip Waxed Suede Dress Shoe is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great AE shoe at a very reasonable price I bought a pair on sale, my 8th pair of AE shoes. The look and feel are excellent. This last does result in a somewhat snug fit on my left foot (my left arch significantly higher than my right) but that's me not the shoe. The supplied shoelaces could have been 3 or 4 inches longer. And it did come with a single shoe bag, I would have much preferred the two bags that AE traditionally supplied. Having said that, these are very well built shoes, they look great, and they are remarkably comfortable. I use these as my "everyday" AE shoes. I did have to buy some brown sole edge dressing (Fiebing's) to re-darken the sole edges as well as a suede brush to be able to clean them up. These are the best value out of my AE shoe collection given that they cost less than $200.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe but this last isnt for me The shoe itself was very well constructed as expected although this particular last does not fit me well so I returned it. Everyone's feet are a little different and I tend to feel best in the 65 (5 last) or 64 lasts. Im dure this last fits someone with a slightly different foot shape differently. AE really should highlight the fact that just because shoes are sized the same does not mean they will fit the same if the lasts they are made on is different. In other words use what you know about what fits well and choose based on that. The shoes themselves were great and I bet for most people they would fit fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and great look Nothing much more to say rather than this company is guaranteed to deliver a quality product at a good price. Virtually every shoe they make will last many years and have the ability to be resoled and refurbished. The only complaint is that they are very stiff out of the box and will take several lengthy wears to break them in. Have a shoe horn handy! However, that tiny issue is part and parcel of quality materials.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from They are exactly what I expected. I already had 6 pairs of Allen Edmonds when I ordered these so I was pretty sure of what I was getting into. I ordered these for days when the weather is a bit wet but not so bad that I needed boots. I thought the waxed suede and rubber soles with tread on it would be a good fit. I also ordered them a size wider than normal since I anticipated wearing heavier socks with these. All of this worked out well. Like all Allen Edmonds they are of superb quality and they look good. Also like all my other Allen Edmonds they require almost no break-in period. Very comfortable from the start.

    How to best take care of waxy suede leather like in McTavish?

    Waxy suede is not like regular suede. It is also described as weatherproof. Is it like CF Stead Waxy Commander; for which beeswax or Dubbin is recommended? Can Huberd's shoe oil be used on this?
    Asked by: Puneet
    It is like the CF stead waxy commander. Doesn’t require much to take care: This is a hardy leathrr. Don’t worry too much about it. Brush dirt off. Condition: I use Bick4 - a light conditioner that does not seem to darken the leather. A little goes a long way. Massage it in. Leave for 30 min or so. Brush. This brings out a light shine. Then I put a light coat of wax polish on the toe and heel - you could use the AE brown carnuba; I use Angelus Dark Brown. Lightly buff for a minute. Light polish on the sides of the sole,heel; you could use heel dressing too. Light polish in the welt area. Spray a generic suede/nubuck protector all around. That’s it. About 10min of work.

    Will I Like this Last?

    I have a number of AE shoes in 511 last - Bradley, Wilbert - and find those very comfortable. I’ve not enjoyed my McAllister’s as much because they feel a bit too narrow for me. I am wondering how the McTavish will compair to these. The description of the last sounds a bit like the one for the McAllister but describes a wider toe area. Would love some advice.
