    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.

    Classic Fit

    Most people consider a “classic” fit to be a “standard” fit. This fit more closely aligns with the natural shape of your feet.

    Hale Dress Shoe is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 64.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Inconsistent burnishing Toe of one of the shoes I received was burnished very inconsistently on the toe cap, with 2 major lines down the middle that did not receive dye. On the other shoe there are three stripes running down the vamp that look like creasing. Frankly, these should have been sold as seconds. In fact I did not even know these would be burnished- the picture online for walnut did not appear to be. All that said, still a gorgeous pair of shoes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great formal shoe Really like the Hale, usually wear it for business occasions with trousers or a suit. Too formal for jeans. I've also worn it with a tuxedo as I don't love the look of patent leather shoes. Great versatile dress shoe!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice shoes for the price. Got this pair at under $180 during a sale. Very nice shoes and decent quality. Not as solid as the 5th Aves and squeaks a bit, but again the price is unbeatable. Took about a week to break in and is fairly comfortable afterwards. A good everyday office shoe for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Shoe This is one of my favorites, fits perfect with a classic walnut color.

    Shoe Care for Walnut Color

    What AE shoe care items would you recommend for the Walnut color? I purchased the Nylon Shoe Care Kit (which works well for my black pair) but I am hesitant to use the brown polish on the Walnut color. What items would you recommend?
    Asked by: TR
    We recommend the Walnut Premium Shoe Polish for the Walnut styles. Feel free to contact us again if you have other questions.

    Width fit

    Hello, I just received a pair of 10.5 D Hale shoes which is the same size as the pair of 5th Ave's that I have which fit perfectly. I know the two are built on a different last, but the Hale seem a bit wider to me. Should I return them to get a narrower width (say a B) or is my mind playing tricks on me? Also, which belt would you recommend to wear with the Hale? The Manistee? Thank you in advance.
    Asked by: Nub
    Allen Edmonds shoes are constructed on a wide variety of lasts (foot molds) and each will feature unique fit characteristics. It is difficult to recommend a size through this channel and guarantee a proper fit because each style can fit differently based on the contours of your feet. If the shoes does not fit, we suggest trying a different size/width combination. You can expect a difference of 1/6" between half sizes, and 3/8" in volume between the B and the D width. It is vitally important to visit an Allen Edmonds retail store or retail partner for a professional fitting to increase your chances of being fit correctly for each last and style. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    Fit Question

    How does the fit of the Hale compare to the Waltons I currently own? I wear an 11 D in the Walton.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    I wear a 13b and the Walton is in a class of it's own. It is by far my favorite AE shoe. It fits like a glove. The Hale does not fit well.

    How does the fit of the Hale Dress Oxford compare to the fit of the Kenilworth?

    Asked by: Daniel10
    The Hale is constructed on the 108 last which has an elongated forepart with a tapered and flatter toe. It is similar to the 222 last with a longer, narrower fit and a rounded toe. The Kenilworth is constructed on the 65 last which is the longest in length of all of our lasts; best for a long, narrow look; and often the best fit for those with high arches. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    The PDF size fit guide says i have 9 length but the Allen Edmonds shoes i am wearing shows 8.

    Why is the difference in my shoes and the measurement? the PDF file size check as 2-1/8" and 3-3/8 is accurate though. Is there something I missed?
    Asked by: Emil
    Thank you for your interest in Allen Edmonds. Typically the same size and last can be ordered in all of our shoes. However, each style can fit differently based on individual foot shape. Though our online Shoe Fit Guide is designed to help ensure your Allen Edmonds shoes are the best possible fit, we still recommend getting a proper fit by a master fitter in one of our retail stores. If this is not possible, keep in mind that products purchased on may be returned at any time, as long as the item is unused and accompanied by the packing slip. Trying the shoes on a carpeted surface will help prevent scuffing on the sole and keep the shoe in returnable condition. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
