  • 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.

    Nomad Plain-toe Derby is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Nomad Derby Nomad Derby is the staple for Allen Edmonds from the beginning. Solid and detail orientated with its precise sole stitching. This is the Gentleman's shoe that will and has survived time. Plain look to the wearer but elegant to the observer. Simply, one of Allen Edmond's best in show for a lifetime. As comfortable as it gets. Stellar!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fitting, comfy shoe but watch your sizing This is the third AE pair of shoe I have purchased in the last 5 months, each of them a different model and built with different lasts and forms, so watch your sizing and try them on carefully to get your best fit. This time my best fit was with my "regular" street-shoe size, 10 D. It is still a bit roomy so I will wear these with slightly thicker socks. Toe box gives me good wiggle room. This Nomad model is lightweight and the upper is quite comfortable on my tired dogs. I think we will get along just fine. This is not a compensated review.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good, but... Well made shoes with nice leather. They do run slightly large, about a quarter to half size for me. And no they are not really a true brown as they have overtones of olive and gold. I did buy the factory seconds at a great price, so some imperfection is to be expected, though other reviews indicate perhaps not. These are made in the Dominican Republic.

    Is the Charcoal color more gray or more black?

    Asked by: ShaunP
    Middle ground. Use polish to move the needle.

    It appears this shoe has a two tone color. Is this correct?

    It appears both the Brown and Charcoal have two tone colors. Just need clarification.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    We apologize for the delay in responding. The upper does not have two-tone leathers. The Brown #3422 has an all brown upper, and the Charcoal #3423 has an all charcoal upper. If you need further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us again!

    The shoe size..

    Where will a foot length of 27.5cm fit. Will it be 42 or 43..
    Asked by: Michele
    Allen Edmonds shoes are true-to-size as they are designed following the sizing standards of the Brannock Device. The length from the heel to the ball of the foot is the same for all of our styles in the same size. With that said, the shape of the toe or depth of the shoes may affect how a shoe fits or feels; this is highly dependent on the contours of each person's feet. For this reason, we are unable to recommend sizes via this channel and guarantee a proper fit.

    What is the difference between "French" and "European" calfskin? Last time I looked, France is part of Europe.....

    Asked by: JS
    France can be found just below her navel, but Europe is sort of all over the place.
