    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Park Avenue is the perfect dress shoe I purchased the Park Avenue in Brown with a Dante's soul. Absolutely no break in time I'm being spoiled by this I feel like I am walking on the cloud and I receive the shoe it was perfect color was perfect in fact I didn't see one flaw. This is my third pair of Park Avenues and again I haven't been disappointed. Victor B

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe Working on my capsule wardrobe. Broke these in at a wedding, lots of dancing and walked a few city blocks. Feet did not hurt at all for a such a strenuous break in. Great shoe, will get in brown next.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Color Ever I was torn between oxblood and mahogony. I settled on the mahogony. AMAZING color and I couldn't be happier. Dark enough for business professional yet unique enough for business casual. These are exactly what I wanter in a shoe. I would buy this exact same color in loafers or less formal oxford style shoes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality and Excellent craftsmanship I bought this product after being told that this is the be all for Allen Edmonds shoes. I was not disappointed. I have heard previously about issues with quality control, but at least with the Park Avenue I had none. In all, I have 5 Allen Edmonds shoes and this one, like the others, fit true to size, which for me is a 8.5 D. I bought this during their anniversary sale so I was very happy with the price, which was the main reason I previously avoided buying the park avenue. Besides Allen Edmonds, I also have shoes from european brands and compared to those brands I would say this shoe provides more room. As the shoes come without the shoelaces pre-prepared I recommend you google how to properly lace them. Before wearing the shoe you should condition the leather and apply shoe cream as well and a small layer of wax to protect from scratching. I believe this product will last me a long time.

    Which soles provide best durability?

    I love my Park Avenue shoes but I've replaced the leather soles twice in the past 5 years. I'm considering getting a new pair with the Tap or rubber soles in hopes they last longer than the leather ones. I know wear and tear is based on a number of factors but can anyone tell me in general how durable these other soles are as compared to leather? Do they take away from the Park Avenue style?
    Asked by: jeffery
    Thank you for your inquiry! We're very sorry that you've had to replace the soles on your Park Avenue shoes twice in the last five years. For a more durable sole we recommend purchasing items with the Dainite sole. You can click here to see the styles with this rubber sole: https://www.allenedmonds.com/search?q=dainite. We hope one of these styles will work for you!

    I currently have a 11 1/2 D5615 23944 code imprinted on the right shoe 11 1/2 D5615 33744 If I requested to go to an E size would that be unusual

    a drastically larger width as far as the overall comfort and fit Also would that shoe be in stock to order and ship within a 7-1- day period for the Park Avenue shoe Please advise
    Asked by: Kendon
    The widest part of your foot is the ball of the foot across the little toe you might want to find the length of the ball of the foot if it’s leaning on a 13 you may want to go to a size 12. Sometimes a wider shoe just get you crowded down in the toebox
