    Relaxed Fit

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1st Pair First pair I've ever bought and let me tell you they are so comfortable right out of the box. Great quality and look amazing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally. I have a pair.! Finally I have a pair of Allen's. As a young kid growing up, I was told by a real classy fellow to never scrimp on purchasing a good pair of shoes. It wasn't until 64 years later that I purchased my 1st pair, but with the advice that the gentleman gave me. They are so smooth and well built that I don't understand what took me so long. Now, I jump whenever I get an email on a sale that's being offered. I have always pride myself on shoes from other makers, Florsheim, Stacy Adam's, etc...but Allen's are really a cut above and top line. Thank you and now I am hooked.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for. I've been looking for a good looking casual lace up shoe that fit well for everyday use. This shoe is just that. Although my foot is often hard to fit, as usual the Allen Edmonds fit great and this shoe is great for walking or standing for long periods of time. I couldn't be happier with this purchase. This pair will be in use for many years I'm sure.

    What is the 42N last? I see only a 42 last listed.

    Asked by: Anonymous
    Hello, The 42N last is similar to the 42 last. However, it is a little bit more room than the 42 last. We hope this helps!

    Surrey versus Nomad suede shoes

    What is the difference, other than the soles, between the Nomad and Surrey suede shoes
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Thank you for reaching out to us. While the Nomad Suede Plain-toe Derby and the Surrey Derby Shoe are similar, they are also very different shoes. The Nomad Suede Plain-toe Derby is made on the 42N last, has a removable LightForm™ Insole with perforated footbed (perfect for those who use orthotics), and has a Feather Welt™ for lightweight shock-absorption. The Surrey Derby Shoe is made on the 1757 last, is weatherproof with a non removable sole, and is made with a 360-degree Goodyear Welted construction. We hope this is helpful!

    I wear UK size 9.5. What’s the equivalent in American sizing?

    Asked by: Suave57
    The UK/US size is listed as 9.5/10, but I found that these shoes run small. I had to get a US 10.5 when I normally wear a 9.5 to 10.

    How is this shoe different from the previous Nomad suede derby? Is it using the same C.F. Stead Suede Upper?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    We have had quite a few different versions of the Nomad, so we apologize we are unsure which you are referring to. In general, when discontinued styles are reintroduced, the main differences are the colors offered or possibly the type of sole featured which are redesigned based on current trends or customer feedback. The suede used on this style is not from C.F. Stead. Feel free to contact us again if your have other questions.
