  • Care

    We believe a great pair of shoes or boots is always a solid long-term investment. To keep your favorite footwear in top form for years or even decades to comes, use our 4 Step Shoe Care Process and these essential products.

    1. Clean

    Start by applying Saddle Soap with a Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth to remove stains and dirt from the uppers and bring up the leather's natural oils.

    2. Polish

    Next, use a Horsehair Dauber to treat your footwear with Cream Polish which renews the color and luster of leather. Any time you want to achieve a truly glossy, high shine, you should instead apply Carnauba Wax Polish.

    3. Dress

    Restore the color and surface of the leather on the heels and soles using Heel Dressing.

    4. Protect

    Leather Lotion keeps uppers soft, supple and hydrated while a Horsehair Shine Brush is perfect for buffing your shoes to the desired shine. As a last step, spray on Water Protector to guard against harmful moisture and spills and use a Leather Dopp Kit to keep all your care products organized.

    Carlyle Plain-Toe Oxford is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 276.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly Comfortable The amazing thing about Allen Edmonds shoes is that after wearing them for a day out of the box, they feel as comfortable as shoes you've worn for years. The Carlyle is a classic oxford with clean lines. It pairs perfectly with a well tailored suit or slacks because the quality and craftsmanship complete a look without distracting from it. It will also "dress up" jeans for a smart casual look when needed. Pre-COVID, I traveled for business and counted on the comfort of my Allen Edmonds to survive long days navigating airports and business meetings. These are worth every penny.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best value for comfort and quality The most comfortable shoes I own. Style is elegant and classy. Price is undervalued in my opinion. What you get for your money is more that worth it. Well made and crafted. Highly recommended. Now that I own a pair, I am not changing brand. Allen Edmond all the way!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Regerts(sic)!!! ;-) Was my first AE purchase: Decided it was finally time to add a quality pair of dress shoes to my wardrobe and went to the local department store. (No local AE store then.) Tried on many different brands which were seemingly made for someone not me. Asked to try on a pair of black Carlyles and they fit as if I were trying on my own shoes. Add to cart! I now own five styles and have already pinned style #6 for purchase. (Western boots and tennis shoes have been retired to the closet.)

    What size to get if a 12.5 D Park Avenue?

    I have been fairly successful getting folks to comment on this half size issue at the 12.5 space. Except for a couple of casual shoes that I suspect are not under great consistency restraints.
    Asked by: Dapper Dave
    Hi Dapper Dave! It's vitally important to visit an Allen Edmonds store or retail partner for a professional fitting to increase your chances of finding a proper fit, as they'll be able to assist you in finding the best fit for this style. If that's not possible, we suggest trying both a 12 and 13 to see which one feels more comfortable. Keep in mind we offer an easy returns policy.

    What size to get for Carlyle if 10.5D in Park Avenue

    I wear 10.5D in Park Avenue and it is a quarter inch long for me and just right on width. For Carlyle, what shoe size should I get? 10.5D, 10.5E or 11D? Am not near an Allen Edmonds store so can't get my foot sized.
    Asked by: Tom
    Each style can fit differently based on the contours of your feet, so it’s difficult to recommend a size via email and guarantee a proper fit. If you are unable to visit a store, typically, we suggest trying the same size you usually wear and judging the fit based on how comfortable you feel in the shoes. Keep in mind that products purchased on AllenEdmonds.com may be returned within 90 days, as long as the item is unworn and accompanied by the packing slip, and not customized.

    Is this shoe black tie appropriate?

    I rarely wear black shoes and am looking for a pair to pull double duty for black tie and very conservative occasions such as funerals. I have a pair of Carlyles in brown that I love, but I'm not sure if they are appropriate for wearing with a tuxedo. I'm also looking at the MacLennan plain toe whole cuts, Park Avenue's, Vernon, and Cornwallis.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Although they are not patent leather, which is the traditional (though perhaps outdated) pairing for evening wear, I think the clean look and calfskin leather of the Carlyle set a sophisticated and understated tone fully appropriate for evening wear. I bought these to replace a pair of patent leather shoes I used to wear with my tuxedo.

    I noticed in the new style guide that there no longer any other shoes offered in this last.. Is there anything similar to this last available?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    The Carlye is on the 108 last, same as the Delray, the Player's 2.0, and the Hale. The closest lasts would be the 222 (Norwich), or perhaps the 65.
