    Care Instructions

    STEP 1: Using a damp cloth or sponge, lather our Saddle Soap and apply onto leather to clean and restore its natural oils.

    STEP 2: Moisturize the shoes with our Cream Polish to make them supple and soft, following instructions on the product.

    STEP 3: Condition the shoes with our Speed Polish, protecting them from dirt, rain and snow.

    STEP 4: Take our Heel dressing applicator and apply to the edge of the heel and sole.

    STEP 5: Apply our Leather Lotion as needed for added protection and polish in between cleanings. Use our Horsehair Shine Brush to buff shoes to a desired shine.

    *For camo printed leather, simply rub our Leather Lotion onto print with our Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth as needed and wipe smudges or dirt away with a damp cloth.

    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 Chelsea Boot is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 46.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good design, so so execution I ordered 2 pair and both had issues. 1st pair had a little slice in the leather and the 2nd pair had a bit of damage on the stretchy cloth on both boots. I was going to return the second pair but just didn’t want to deal with the hassle. So they’re good enough. I guess. Will probably be weary of future purchases that list “imported” as country of origin - it seems there’s QC issues since I usually get the US or Italian made shoes from AE. The details seem a bit sloppy on the construction but maybe I’m too picky?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent boot especially when on sale This was my first time trying a boot from Allen Edmonds and I’m so glad that I did. The leather is very soft and the lightweight sole is wonderful! Fits true to size, you could also half size down if you wanted a snug/sleek fit (which is what I did) and the leather wraps around my foot perfectly. Really do recommend this boot I honestly want to get the black color as well to add to my collection!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had a pair of RM Williams for many years. The Allen Edmonds Nomad Boot is on par with RM Williams. I’m a long time Allen Edmonds shoe customer for many reasons. The quality as I’m definitely hard on shoes and they always hold up. The fit is always true to size. I’ve never returned a pair of Allen Edmond shoes. They deliver on benefit vs. cost.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots! First time buying Goodyear welted boots, they had good reviews on Reddit. I bought black and coffee nomads on sale on Christmas and they arrived in Canada around Jan 6th. My foot measures slightly closer to an 11E, but I bought 11D. The fit is great with no issues. The nomads in coffee showed up a bit lighter in color than the picture. Customer service offered to refund the pair. They grew on me and after a day I decided I liked the color so I ended up keeping them. I was told polishing can dark them a bit. Overall, I love these boots, they are sturdy, look great and are very comfortable. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend these boots

    Hello, I want to buy these shoes, but I have doubts about the size, I already own two AEs which are Park Avenue and others, and there I use the 8.5 D, which size do you recommend the same or another since they are these boots?
    Asked by: andres 8
    Don't buy them. 'I wear 12's. I should have ordered 15's. But then again, I was evidently sent seconds due to the damaged condition the boots were in when I received them.

    Do you make this boot in brown?

    I am a big A&E fan and have the Nomad in black (9.5/EEE). I would like to buy a pair in dark brown (not coffee). Do you offer that? I asked at a store once and I believe I was told it could be special ordered, but I never circled back. Thanks.

    Are these airport security friendly?

    Ie--will these set off the metal detectors at TSA-pre?
    Asked by: Graham
    Theres no metal in them. If your TSA pre-check it wouldn't matter because you leave your shoes on, if not TSA pre-check they have to come off, so it would not matter anyway.

    Will the D work better than the EEE for someone who wears EE?

    I wear an 11 EE in the New Balance 990. I have already ordered an 11 D so I hope it’s right. Did not notice this section until after the order was placed. Thank you for any help.
    Asked by: Travis
    Each style can fit differently based on the contours of your feet, so it’s difficult to recommend a size and guarantee a proper fit. Typically, we recommend trying the same size you usually wear and judging the fit based on how comfortable you feel in the shoes. If possible, we’d love to have you visit an Allen Edmonds retail store or one of our retail partners for a professional fitting. Our associates are trained to help you find the right fit for the various lasts and styles we offer.

    How does the XL Width Affect Fit

    Hello. I wear a 10 EEE in the Liverpool Chelsea but this appears to be an XL width. How does the XL width affect the sizing and sizing choice?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The EEE is the widest width Allen Edmonds offers and the size and width combination you choose will highly depend on the shape of your feet. At Allen Edmonds, we believe the right fit is vitally important. If you are a first-time Allen Edmonds customer, we recommend a professional fitting by an Allen Edmonds associate at your nearest retail location or an authorized Allen Edmonds dealer. Find a store near you.
