    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 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.

    LEATHER REPORT

    Vegetable-Tanned Calfskin

    This ancient method for treating leather uses natural materials derived from tree bark and other plant matter in place of the harmful metals used in modern dye processes. The result is beautifully soft shades of leather like this bone color used for our Force 10 Boat Shoe that will develop into a light brown over time through wear and exposure to sunlight.

    A Hue That Changes with You

    Starting as a creamy, off-white, your footwear will take on a color and burnish that are individual to you as you wear it and treat it with our shoe care products.

    Chicago’s famed Horween tannery has been producing some of the world’s best leathers since 1905. It’s committed to keeping traditional techniques alive through processes that combine old-world craft with the latest innovations.

    Force 10 Boat Shoe is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 34.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Force 10 boating slip-on Allen Edmonds Force 10 is an excellent walking shoe, also providing a good grip on wet surfaces. For a slip-on, I went down a half size to prevent heel sliding. That of course risked the shoe being too small, but the approach worked. An apparent tight spot quickly went away and the shoe conforms perfectly. I cut off the excess leather string ; the shoe fits without any assistance thereof.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality These are well-constructed shoes that are in line with the quality level of my prior pairs of Allen Edmonds shoes, which include a pair of Park Avenues purchased in the mid-80s. I think this company offers a good value and great customer service, and I am happy to make it my default shoe brand.

    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 1 out of 5 by from These are the worst boat shoes that I have ever owned These are the worst boat shoes that I have ever owned. When you wear them in bare feet (which is how I have always worn my boat shoes) the insoles stick to your feet and come out of the shoe when you take them off. I had previously purchase a pair of the East Port boat shoes a couple years ago, and they were the best boat shoes I ever owned. I wanted to get another pair of the East Ports, but was informed that they were discontinuing that style. In addition to the quality issue, the shoes were shipped to me via a combination of FedEx and USPS, which took almost 3 weeks to arrive. I have other Allen Edmonds shoes that I love. My experience with these shoes is significantly below my expectations and has me questioning whether the quality and service that I have grown accustomed to from Allen Edmonds had deteriorated, or if this an isolated incident.

    Can I re-lace these w/ a replacement lace so they can be tied like a regular shoe + not be a slip-on? I need a tighter fit due to a very narrow foot.

    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.

    Do you have this shoe in a lace-up style?

    I cannot determine from your pictures if the leather shoe strings are only for show. I need lace up shoes, not slip-ons.

    How do you replace laces on the Force 10? It seems that the laces thread all through the sides of the shoe.

    Is a visit to the repair shop required just to change laces?

    We would recommend purchasing replacement laces on www.shoelaceexpress.com. -AE Consumer Care Dept.
