    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.

    Leeds Dress Plain-toe Blucher Shoe is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 167.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek, comfortable and stylish. I find that my Allen Edmonds Leeds Shell Cordovan Derby Shoes are well crafted and sleek in profile. Although not a formal shoe, I have paired my Leed’s with casual attire and with a suit. The Horween Shell Cordovan is legendary and relatively easy to maintain. Love the JR soles! For me, I find the fit to be true to size and comfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good to know my AE Size is Consistent I first purchased this shoe (in Cordovan) in 1989. I had sent this pair in for re-crafting, once, and then again in 2020--and somehow, something didn't go right--and AE sent me a BRAND NEW PAIR--and these were a perfect fit, although the Diamite sole is the best way to go. I'm thinking about buying another new pair--in black--probably the most useful dress shoe in the U.S.--maybe the world. If you're in your 30s, this is probably the best investment in a shoe you can make. (I'm posting this, because I don't understand the variance in the reviews)

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from New shoes arrived beat up Just received my new Cordovan Leeds in black and I was surprised as the condition of the shoes were not new. They were obvious a display model as the price sticker was on the shoe and one of the shoes was faded from being on display. At the least, Allen Edmonds should have polished the shoes before sending them to me. I am not sure I will purchase from Allen Edmonds again.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Shoe, but quality is hit and miss So I order these in Brown Cordovan a while back On-line and was told I had to wait 9 weeks for them to make them for me. I though great, if they are making them specifically to fill the order, then I will probably get a decent pair without any quality issues. About 5 weeks went by and I decided to cancel my order, which AE did without an issue (good customer service)... but then they had their $75 off promotion and it included the Cordovan shoes!! So I re-ordered the Brown Cordovan Leeds in 8.5E. Got the same message about having to wait 9 weeks, but those original shoes I had ordered must have been almost done and waiting for someone with my foot size, because less than a week after I order I received my shoes....and...I'm slightly disappointed. The Cordovan line is AE's top of the line, they made these shoes fresh for a specific order, and still they had quality issues. the stitching on the bottom of the left sole sticks up and will probably wear quickly as it rubs against the concrete (trench not cut deep enough) and also the leather on the toe of the outsole is rough and will need some sanding and touch-up... I will say that the upper is generally in good shape, but not perfect... Still, I've decided to keep them and deal with the issues as best I can myself.... mostly because I'm tired of the cycle of sending shoes back to AE and re-ordering supposed "Firsts". I've never commented before, but for a shoe that they sell for $695 , AE needs to do much better. ... This will be my last AE for quite a while, and probably the last one I buy on-line.

    Why have the Walnut and Oxblood colors been removed?

    Hello, I’d like to know why the oxblood and walnut colors for The Leeds have been removed. Will they be available again at some point for purchase? Or could they be ordered custom-made (as can the Park Avenues)? Thanks!
    Asked by: Bk600
    Unfortunately, walnut and oxblood has been discontinued in this style. There are many factors considered when discontinuing styles such as customer feedback, sales performance, or fashion trends. These are decisions made internally by our design and leadership teams and we're sorry we unable to share specific reasons for the discontinuation of each style. We apologize for any disappointment.

    Any servicemen use these with their Class A uniform?

    Looking for a more comfortable option to the issued plastic shoes that blow out at the welt every year. Does anyone have any experience using these shoes with their Class A uniform?
    Asked by: Fabian
    I have used black Leeds in both calfskin and shell cordovan for years while wearing ASU-A and ASU-B uniforms. They are substantially better than the half dozen other options I’ve tried. I highly recommend them. One pair in particular has been part of my kit for close to a decade, and I’ve only had to send them in for recrafting twice.

    Are the Leeds Plain Toe Dress shoe airport security friendly?

    Asked by: Roger
    Yes, they are airport security friendly. I believe they do have a steel shank in the sole, but it will not set off any metal detectors. I have had this style for the last 16 years and travel through airport security weekly as a pilot.

    Current Leeds vs. Old Leeds

    I bought a pair of black leather (non-cordovan) Leeds about 6 years ago. They are the "old style", the one before Leeds 2.0. Can you please tell me whether the current Leeds model -- the one that's for sale now -- would be the same or different than my old Leeds? Thank you!
    Asked by: Christopher
    The Leeds currently offered is the original version of the Leeds. Feel free to contact us again if you have additional questions!
