  • 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe, very satisfied!!! IF the shoe fits-WEAR IT!! My problem has always been that I have a very wide foot and a high instep-rather hard to fit. AE has always been a good fit for me, not all styles, but the shoes I purchase are the ones I like.

    Sanford and Hancock cap toe derby Style

    Please consider bringing these two style shoes back in production. Short of the Boulevard, you don't have any styles that allow for feet with a higher bridge. These are easier to lace with feet. I love my AE's and I'm unable to fit into the new styles where the quarter is restricted. The 97 last is a great one.

    I wear orthotics in my shoes which require the removal of the insole. Is this possible to do with your shoes?

    Asked by: BJ70
    I have to wear an Arizona foot brace for a torn posterior ankle tendon and wear a size 11 in an Allen Edmond shoe. I went to DFW shoe store and bought a pair of lace up brown and black Bostonians in 11W and was able to wear them. Takes some practice putting them on without a shoe horn and removing the console, but they work! Wear suits to work and needed dress shoes.
