    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.

    Force 10 Boat Shoe is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sizing.... Ordered a 13 B in mid- June (thanks Covid). Arrived yesterday. Too short. Toe box is rather squared off. No opinion on the quality. Appears to be okay. Disappointed as I am a long time, loyal customer with 5 pairs of AE's currently in my closet. Oh well..... Returning for refund.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Tough Good-Looking Boat Shoe Enjoyed wearing this shoe through out last summer. Very pleased with the sturdiness and toughness of the shoe that is comfortable after break in. They were slightly darker than I expected, but that was not an issue; overall it’s a good looking shoe.

    Slip on? Or need to tie up laced??

    Asked by: FF
    The laces are functional if you need to adjust them, however most customers use this style as a slip-on without having to untie the laces. If you have other questions, feel free to contact us again.
