    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 38.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficult to get size right. Risk on factory 2nds I normally wear a 10.5 medium width. After some research revealed that boots run slightly larger normally I ordered a 10 D. The boots were WAY too tight width wise. Length seemed ok but the width was so constricting it was hard to tell. Returned then thinking I knew what I needed now I ordered a pair of factory 2nds on sale at 10.5 3E. These were way too wide. I didn't need the half size up either I just needed something a little wider than their D width which normally works in every other shoe I've ever worn. Unfortunately there is no offering between D and EEE. Now I'm out restocking fee and return shipping. The factory 2nds looked fine as far as any damage or defects but what was obvious is that they became seconds because of sub par leather cuts. I'd rather have small scuffs or stitching defects than leather that clearly is mismatched and deformed. I'll try AE again in the future for sure but I'll probably move to RMW for my first pair of chelseas which is too bad because I was really trying to keep it in USA made.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Quality I bought these boots about 1 year ago and the sole on the heel is already worn out! I don’t wear these every day, I was only wearing them a couple days a week! For the price point this is terrible quality, I have 6 other AE styles and these are the only ones that have had this issue! They are comfortable, but I would never recommend at this price point for boots that wear out after 100 wears!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from EEE is not wide enough! I purchased these boots with high hopes given the reputation and quality of AE. I liked the stylish look, but sadly they were too snug. After fifteen minutes of trying to place my foot in the boot, I gave up when I began to have swelling. Perhaps I was given the wrong size? After not being able to connect to customer service, I decided to gift them to my boyfriend who also wears an 8.5, but is much more narrower than me. Lucky him! As a wide footed man, I am disappointed in this product. Why is it so difficult to locate a comfortable, stylish shoe/boot for a man with wide feet? Shopping for the latter is like searching for a needle in a haystack. I am an 8.5 EEE. Certainly there are other men who have even have wider feet than me. AE Please. You need to ensure your product is true to size and width. And also, please make more styles with better widths. Not every man on the planet has narrow feet. Us wide footed men have money and are willing to pay good money for a good, long lasting shoes/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
    Each style can fit differently based on the contours of your feet, so it’s difficult to recommend a size via channel 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. -AE Consumer Care Dept.

    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.

    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.

    What shoe polish would work with the coffee color?

    Asked by: David
    Good evening, David. The polish # 1014990 Brown would work well with the Chelsea boot. Thank you for being an Allen Edmonds customer!
