    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: Protect your shoes from dirt, rain and snow and enhance the shine and color with our Speed Polish.

    STEP 4: Apply our Leather Lotion to protect the heels and edges of your shoes.

    *For camo printed leather, simply rub our Leather Lotion onto leather with our Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth as needed and wipe smudges or dirt away with a damp cloth.

    Strand Oxford Sneaker is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Don't expect this to fit like a Strand dress or casual hard sole shoe. These shoes look great, and I was excited to get them. However, these shoes do not fit like a sneaker version of the strand casual/dress shoes of which I currently own several pairs and are also some of my favorite shoes to wear. For me, these strand sneakers run long. I thought I might get by with this because the width seems to be ok considering strands seem to run narrow in general. However, I should have gone on first impressions and returned them. I would recommend going down a half size if they slide any at all. If AE customer service reads this and wants to do me a solid, I would be most grateful.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Extremely narrow, does not fit like Strands or Strandmoks This is a gorgeous shoe, but fair warning to my wide-footed brethren: This shoe is extremely narrow and does NOT fit like the regular Strands. I wear a 13-14 in most other brands, and consistently a 12 EEE in AE. I have in my collection 1 5th Ave, 2 Strands, 1 Strandmok, and 1 Strandmok 2.0 (suede) and all fit perfectly. This shoe in 12EEE was so narrow I almost couldn't get my foot in, so I ordered a size up in 13 D and it was even worse. I'm returning both and hoping a 13 EEE does the trick.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from So Inconsistent Purchased the park ave sneaker in Chili, took forever to get here because it was when they were first released, something like 9 weeks. But, they came in and they were perfect in every way. Literally the best of the both worlds. So naturally being a huge fan of the strand I purchased the strand walnut sneaker. Took 6 weeks to get here, and they came out of the box looking like straight baby poo. Literally the walnut finish looked like baby poo. Mind you, I've already owned 3 pairs of the regular strand in walnut, so I'm very familiar with what they should look like. These were terrible. Sent them back, ordered another, maybe it was a one-off? Took another 3 weeks, just came in today, and the sneaker again looks like baby poo, but the brogue toe and rear look like they took some left-over bourbon scraps and threw them on the toes and rears. I can't keep doing this Allen Edmonds. Your shoes used to be top-notch but nowadays it seems like we need to order 6 pairs before we get a solid pair. It's very frustrating. If you're going to make a sneaker out of your best (and most popular) shoe, it better be spot on.....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love them. These were on my wish list for awhile. I wear them frequently. They are constantly complemented on and always surprise me with how beautiful they are. They have zero, or nearly zero drop which I prefer in athletic shoes. I could run in them. A pleasant amount of cushion. Like a pair of Jack Purcell sneaks. I darkened the toes a little and added a mirror shine. They absolutely kill with a fresh pair of dark jeans and with an old faded pair as well. I have a few summer suits that I really look forward to pairing them with. Overall, my favorite AE shoes to date. I defiantly live on a budget but these versatile shoes have been worth every penny.

    Quality compared to Strand and Strandmok dress shoes?

    How does the quality of the upper suede compare to the suede in the Strand and Strandmok dress shoes? Is it the same material? I see this is described as "leather-lined," but the Strandmok does not use that phrase. Also, is the leather full grain, split, or some other variety?
    Asked by: AThompson
    The quality for what they are... a casual sneaker seems fine. However, they are not of the same quality and feel as the strand dress or strand dress casual shoe its look emulates. For me, the sizing is a little long compared to the dress version and casual versions I wear.

    Thank you for your interest in the Strand Oxford sneakers! We can't guarantee a perfect color match with Avenue dress belt, but the color should be similar. We hope this information helps!

    Fit for EEE

    In the review for the new Strand Oxford sneaker concerning the EEE fit, I want to be sure that if I order the shoes that they are made to fit a EEE foot. I have about 20 pairs of AE shoes all from your store. I can honestly say the quality needs to step up based on my last two pairs. If using glue make sure it sticks before sending. Make sure the shoe doesn’t squeak and the stitching is quality and unfrayed. What happened to the dock side loafer with baseball stitching? That’s the shoe I have that the glue used did not last.

    I wear a 12EEE in strands and 5th Ave, and the fit is perfect. I ordered the Strand sneakers in 12EEE and almost could not get my foot in. I'm going to try a size up and see if that's better, but it'll be another 5-6 week wait while they get crafted.

    Is it possible to polish or stain the white part of the soles so it isn't white?

    I'd like to try to pass these off as a dressier shoe and wonder if there is a way to change the color of the white sole. If so, how?
    Asked by: Joseph
    We do not recommend to use a product to change the color. If do you so, it is at your risk.
