  • 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.

    Which soles provide best durability?

    I love my Park Avenue shoes but I've replaced the leather soles twice in the past 5 years. I'm considering getting a new pair with the Tap or rubber soles in hopes they last longer than the leather ones. I know wear and tear is based on a number of factors but can anyone tell me in general how durable these other soles are as compared to leather? Do they take away from the Park Avenue style?
    Asked by: jeffery
    For a Park Avenue I would not wear anything but leather soles. They do wear out quickly but the support and look make them worth the cost.

    what color shoe with a dark blue suit

    Asked by: phil
    Dark Chili or Walnut, depending on your style. The Chili is somewhat similar to a burgundy, with a redish hue - pretty unique. The Walnut is a light tan.
