    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.

    Salerno Penny Loafer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft, light, comfortable, nice-looking. Great shoe for those of us who like AE but prefer a less stiff, more comfortable dress shoe.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good-looking, comfortable shoe This is a very attractive shoe, suitable for casual and dress wear. I did not need to break in the pair. They were comfortable from the moment I put them on. In addition, they support my feet better than the soft leather slip-ons I had been wearing. In addition, the sale price made them an irresistible purchase. I recommend them highly and am considering buying a second pair in a different color.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Everything’s on sale for a reason Always a good fit, comfortable, but breakdown in leather in just a few months around toe and heal. AE quality really becoming an issue. (30 pairs later I’m looking for a new go-to brand)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Comfort & Fit I struggle to get a good fit from loafers. However, I find the Salernos to have great fit and comfort right out of the box in my normal size. I am on the narrower side of a D width and these shoes fit securely with no heel slip, but achieve this without ever feeling small or tight anywhere. It’s a wonderful last for a loafer. The oxblood color is a darker burgundy, though pretty accurately depicted online. The overall shape and look is nice, subtly Italian, but not an extreme departure from AEs mellow American styling. Part of me thinks the shoe would be more elegant and stylish with a leather sole, but then again rubber soles do have their benefits and perhaps contributes to the excellent comfort.

    I wear a size 11.5 in Nike sneakers. What size should I get for this particular loafer?

    I have medium arch and my width for most shoes is standard. Any help is greatly appreciated.
    Asked by: Michael00
    Allen Edmonds shoes are true-to-size as they are designed following the sizing standards of the Brannock Device. The length from the heel to the ball of the foot is the same for all of our styles in the same size. With that said, the shape of the toe or depth of the shoes may affect how a shoe fits or feels; this is highly dependent on the contours of each person's feet. For this reason, we are unable to recommend sizes via this channel and guarantee a proper fit.

    are any of your shoes made with a deep toe box?

    Asked by: pankajtoronto
    We would recommend checking out our shoes that offer removable insoles. Typically, those styles have a deeper toe box because of the insole. We have provided a link below:

    Are these shoes Blake stitched? Is it similar to Verona?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    Hello, Thank you for your inquiry! Unfortunately, the Salerno loafer is not blake stitched. The Verona and the Salerno are similar because they are both cemented styles. -AE Consumer Care Dept.

    Do these have cork in them?
    Asked by: Jpw
    The Salerno Penny Loafer is an Italian style that used the Bologna Flex construction. This type of construction does not have a cork layer. If you prefer a penny loafer with a welted construction and cork midlayer, we suggest looking at the styles in this link: Feel free to contact us again if you have additional questions!

    How much will these stretch? And what’s the measurement difference between the D and the EEE width?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    Your shoes should fit comfortably snug directly out of the box. The widths of Allen Edmonds shoes range from AAA, the narrowest width, to EEE, the widest width, with a D width considered medium. Technically speaking, each width increases by approximately three-sixteenths of an inch in total girth.
