    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.

    Strand Cap-Toe Oxford with Combination Tap Sole is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 951.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great business and casual shoe This is my second pair of EA shoes I bought. Like the Fifth Avenue I bought them in NY, but these in Walnut. As the Fifth Avenues, they are perfect to wear, look stunning and are extremely comfortable. I most of the time wear them with blue Jeans and they are my go to shoes when I am not 100% sure if I should go formal or casual.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor quality control I had been trying to decide on buying a pair of walnut strands for a while after seeing all the YouTube reviews. I have a pair of Crockett and Jones oxfords and they are beautiful but they don’t carry this style and colour. After waiting nearly a month for it to arrive in Australia I was very disappointed. The colour dyeing of the leather was uneven in certain spots, almost blotchy. I emailed AE and all they did was apologise, even after I sent them photos of it brand new. From Australia it would’ve cost me another $100 to send it back In the end I had to use various Saphir products to darken the overall colour and smooth out the imperfections and now just hope it patinas well. Will save my money for quality English footwear, or at least wait till these are massively on sale.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible quality control Was really excited for these, but the pair I received were worse than seconds. The welt weaved in and out of the groove and the color was super uneven. Returned. Guess what people say about AEs quality control is down the drain are correct. Shame that American craftsmanship has fallen by the wayside.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoes...as always I purchased the Strand Cap Toe Oxford for my son, as his first pair of "real deal" dress shoes (he has been borrowing different pairs of mine for dress occasions for a few years now) I'm a loyal Allen Edmonds customer for over 30 years now and they have never let me down. Great shoes, and great service.

    Sizing

    A J&M wingtip is slightly large on me in a size 8 Standard. I'm told these run a little big. Do you suggest sizing down to a 7.5 E (my foot is just a tad wider than standard) or sticking with an 8E? In Vans and other sports shoes I typically wear a size 8.5 - 9. Thanks for any help you can provide on these. I realize getting fitted in the store is the best option but there isn't an AE near me.

    I don't expect you'll do anything, but have had something that bugged me since bought a black pair of strands a little under three years ago.

    I have loved the fit and the wear, but. I never cared for fact that their is a gap between the "subsole" and the leathelearned.Your picures make that part of the sole seem very smoothe. The gap has always been there and not gotten any worse. It just bugs me because I would like consider a pair of loafers but think that your product pictures don't match what you get. I bought these on $50.00 off sale from this site. Do you guys sell seconds on sale? I wish now that I would have sent them back forr another, but lesson learned.

    Which belt do you recommend for the Strands in Cigar?

    Asked by: Russell
    The best belt in my opinion is the Manistee Belt in Dark Chili. Dark Chili closely matches the Cigar Strand, and the brogue patterns are similar between the belt and the shoe.

    Can the rubber sole be replaced If or when it wears down?

    It looks like it is stitch on together with the leather sole. How long will it last?
