  • 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.

    Venture Weatherproof Cap-toe Derby is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rugged, good looking, comfortable, great traction, truly weather resistant! After a lifetime of English-made shoes, this made-in-the-USA shoe is a match for quality at a significantly better price. A comfortable shoe for nature walks and hikes, the tread on the sole ensures that I remain sure-footed over all terrain and, true to its claim, the shoe is impervious to all weather conditions. I couldn’t be more pleased with my purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent all-purpose shoe, limited sizing is an issue The design of this shoe is excellent. By design, I mean both the styling and the materials. I hoped for a long time that Allen Edmonds would produce an attractive waterproof shoe using Chromexcel leather and hard rubber soles. I am writing this review to encourage others to buy this shoe so that it remains in production. For those of us who have moved from the city to the country, this shoe checks all the boxes: attractive, durable, wearable in all weather conditions, easy to care for, and recraftable. The only downside is the limited width sizing -- only D and EEE were available and I had to take a guess on the right size because I now live 2 hours from the closest AE store. Customer service's suggestion of 10D was too narrow. I tried three sizes before settling on 9.5 EEE as the closest match to Park Avenue in 9.5 EE which fit like a glove. After experimentation with many different combinations of socks and insoles, I now believe 9 EEE would have been a closer match. As of today, this size is not available.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recent Success I like the different leather (I got brown). Surface of the shoes is a rougher texture, so weather and minor scratches are a non issue. Took a while to wear in these shoes and required some patience; maybe the leather is less forgiving. They are a great fit after broken in though! I have no worries with these in the rain.

    What kind of out sole does this shoe have? How long would it last?

    Asked by: Shoe man
    Hello there! Thank you for your interest in the Venture Weatherproof Cap-Toe Derby. This style features a rubber sole. Please note that Allen Edmonds does not advise that our shoes or their soles will last a specific period of time. These factors can vary greatly depending on the frequency of wear, conditions of wear, and how each individual cares for their footwear.
