    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.

    Classic Fit

    Most people consider a “classic” fit to be a “standard” fit. This fit more closely aligns with the natural shape of your feet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for money This is a rare Adelaide oxford from Allen Edmonds. It’s fit is more generous than European competitors, but that also means it’s a go-to shoe when you want No-fuss comfort. At a Christmas party last week I chose it over my more expensive handmade Vass shoes because of its ease of wear. Get it on sale if you like an American shoe with a little bit of Euro flair.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Cornwallis I have read several critical reviews of the Cornwallis. It seems to me that these critics are not aware that most hand made shoes cannot and will not be perfect. This Cornwallis is number 51 AE shoes I bought in the last few years. Every shoe comes with a little imperfection. However, all are minor and can be resolved with the proper use of Saddle Soap (for creases and dullness), shoe cream and polish. A little acetone and 00 grade sandpaper can eliminate most aesthetic imperfections. I removed 3 minor imperfections in the Cornwallis. If you want a perfectly finished handmade shoes, you should budget $700-$800.00. AE is selling these shoes as low as $171.00 VS. the $395-425 price tag.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fit is too small. I have many pairs of AE dress shoes. They are all the same size, and all fit comfortably. This one was painfully smaller. I had my doubts about this particular pair after the box it arrived in was held together by tape and one of the shoes was folded onto itself creating a crease in the leather. It appeared to me that this pair had been rejected by another customer. This is not what I expect from this company. Very disappointing

    Why don't you make this shoe in "C" widths? I have previously tried this shoe in a "B" width (size 9) and it was just a little too tight on my foot.

    I have a pair of AEs that I bought 30 years ago, and they are beginning to wear out (I didn't take good care of them the first few years I had them). Are the lasts different now than 30 years ago, or would the new ones need to be stretched out?
    Asked by: RPM53
    We're sorry that this style is not made in a C width. If the B is too snug, we suggest trying the D width. Alternately, we do offer other select styles in the C width. You can find them here: https://www.allenedmonds.com/shoes/?prefn1=size&prefn2=width&prefv1=9&prefv2=C Regarding the lasts, in the past few decades there are lasts that have been discontinued, new ones have been added, and others that are still offered. If you know the last on your shoes, you can filter by last on our website to see if we have other styles offered in that last. If you require assistance selecting a style, please feel free to call us at 877-817-7615. We'd be happy to help!

    What size should I order for the Cornwallis if i am a 10.5 EEE in the Park and 5th Ave? Will they fit the same?

    Asked by: Djw
    Hi Daniel! Each style can fit differently based on the contours of your feet, so it’s difficult to recommend a size via Bazaarvoice and guarantee a proper fit. Typically, we recommend trying the same size you usually wear and judging the fit based on how comfortable you feel in the shoes. If possible, we’d love to have you visit an Allen Edmonds retail store or one of our retail partners for a professional fitting. Our associates are trained to help you find the right fit for the various lasts and styles we offer.
