    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 5 out of 5 by from Awrsome Love them awesome from the first wearing. Very comfortable

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow — great boot! The Patton in charcoal kudu is one of my favorites. The color is a rich grey with a touch of brown, and the texture is incredible. The soft kudu leather is comfortable from day one. The Patton is not as tall as the Higgins Mill, and just a hair taller than a chukka. I wear mine the same way that I’d wear a chukka, actually. If you’re looking for a comfortable boot to wear with chinos or denim, you should definitely check out the Patton.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great look and comfortable I've only had these a couple of weeks but already I think.they my be the most comfortable pair of AE shoes I've.owned (out of the 15 or so I have or that I've had). I typically wear something on either the 511 or 65 last as a guide. The fit is perfect in the 13 E I wear. The look is great as well. Works with jeans or khakis, out to casual dinner or casual office wear in inclement weather.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice casual boot The Patton cap toe boot is very attractive and comfortable. I like the grey matte finish and have gotten nice comments about the style. The boot goes nicely with jeans, chinos and other better casual wear. Comfortable and quiet.

    Kudu leather

    Who is the leather maker of this kudu leather? Is it Kudu calf from Horween or Kudu leather? Thanks

    Kudu leather is the hide from an African-native species of Antelope named Kudu. We source kudu leather from different tanneries. Kudu leather is not from Horween tannery. -AE Consumer Care Dept.

    Polish & Care?

    Do you really use BLACK cream & speed polish on gray Patton’s as indicated in your care guide. Won’t that darken them?

    Patton Cap-Toe Boot: Country of manufacture?; 2) Grey vs "Grey-Brown"

    1) I am awaiting "two" pairs of this Patton Cap-toe boot, and have major anxiety now reading that these may be made in the Dominican Republic??? NOTHING good or well made comes from the Dominican Republic. With the little American flag in the upper left of the page, I thought these boots are made in Wisconsin "USA" like all/most Allen Edmonds. Please confirm, especially after reading about poor quality and mistakes. 2) One person asked if the "Grey" boot might in fact be "Grey-Brown", and you confirmed they are "Grey Brown", yet in your mailer for the sale, they are described as "Charcoal" which is NOT Grey-Brown. I may need to return these if in fact they are not "Charcoal". Please reconfirm - both of these issues are disconcerting, especially "quality" Allen Edmonds shoes being made in the Dominican Republic..."why"?
    Asked by: Teleman
    I have a pair of the charcoal Patton. Mine were made in the USA. It’s a casual boot with a great texture. I would say that the charcoal color is a dark grey with a touch of brown. Personally, I feel that the hint of brown gives them a richer, warmer color that looks more like real leather than a pure grey would.

    Comparison with Hearst

    If this is kudu leather, is Hearst on Chromexcel? Any plans to release this with speed hooks like Hearst and in that leather?
    Asked by: Prakash
    Hello, Thank you for your inquiry! The Hearst is not made with Chromexcel leather. At this time, we do not have plans to release the Patton boot with speed hooks. -AE Consumser Care Dept.
