    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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice fit and finish Bought the same shoe and size in Brown during the seconds sale around a year ago.1/2020. Like the fit but notice some finish flaws. Because I liked the fit I bought the same shoe in black during the post holiday sale. This black pair has the same fit but a much better finish than the seconds.. Very comfortable shoe I may call and see if they can make the shoe in cordovan horween leather

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Chukka Had now for about two weeks now. I ended up buying the Black and the Brown. And bought my brother a pair. They are very comfortable and look really nice. I have had a lot of compliments on them. Just want to add in that Nicole from the store off of Madison Ave in NY is the best. I will always use her very knowledgeable and patient.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Craftsmanship issues Boots look sharp abs and is very comfy. Leather is very nice. Slight peeling of the heel right out of the box . Storm welt is uneven and deformed in certain areas . I plan to keep them and fix them but at this price point buyers must not worry or waste time with things like that

    Will this sole squeak loudly on smooth indoor flooring?

    Asked by: Kevin
    I wear these daily in and out of buildings... they will squeak loudly on linoleum floors for a brief time when coming in from rain or snow... they become squeak free and silent once the soles are dry

    How dressie is this boot? If I wear wool socks, should I oder a size up? How dressie is the Higgins Mill boot verse this chukka boot?

    Asked by: Chris
    I wear a size 11 eee park ave dress shoe and a 9.5 eee alpine chukka. I have a 10 eee Higgins Mill that is still too big The 65 last fit of the park ave is apples and oranges to the Higgins mill and alpine chukka last. I did not buy any chukka other than the USA made alpine because I know how they fit... some AE chukkas are made overseas. I just received a 9.5 D Ranger boot and it was very tight. There wasn’t a wide option available for that boot at the time so I’m returning and trying a 10 D This is wearing cotton or medium to lightweight wool socks with boots and dress socks with shoes
