    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.
    Fit

    Relaxed Fit

    The relaxed fit has added space in the toe box. This extra room allows for thicker socks and foot expansion that occurs at the end of the day or during a long flight.

    Normandy Cap-Toe Boot is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 64.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots, dark brown The color is a lot darker than the images on the website would lead you to believe, but the leather is buttery soft. I have another pair of these in the Taupe Suede so I knew what I was getting into for the most part. These aren't really work boots, the leather isn't a super-hard wearing type that you find in work boots, but they are great looking comfortable boots. I wear mine with jeans and casual pants, sometimes in my shop or to work when a safety boot isn't needed. They come with shoe bags, two types of laces, and a nice sturdy box.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Value: Looks and endures like a boot, house slipper comfort at reasonable cost AE paid attention to design and details. The boot is unlined and runs at least a 1/2 size large and even up to full size depending on your preference to socks and fit. Not uncommon for quality boots. Pairs best with chinos, jeans or more rustic flannel grey pants. They are so darn soft and comfortable, like home slippers, yet are rugged, provide great support and look good too. Therefore, they have become a “go to” boot on weekends or office casual days or if a lot of walking and standing will be done. The boots have aged extremely well. Have quite a few boots to compare them to like Wolverine 1000 Mile, Frye Made in the USA, Magnanni, Danner and Crockett &Jones. The Normandy is as good or better except for the CJ’s (different price point too). AE makes excellent Goodyear welted boots that provide a lot of long term value even at full price. Very satisfied customer.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could have been better I honestly quite like the boots but have to give it a critical review at these prices. First, the US site has a price significantly cheaper than the Canadian with exchange considered, by about $50 which leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I considered getting a US address but the hassle was not worth it. So there's that. Shipping was pricey, again, about another $50. They did do an excellent job packaging with it being a box inside another. Finally, the boots. I immediately noticed that the sanding along the edge of the sole left a bump, as if he lifted off too early. Also, the tongue has some dried stain. Appears to have something to do with the white stamping inside leaving a significant blemish. All in, I paid nearly $600CDN with all the taxes and shipping, I am going to expect perfection or close to it. I do like these boots despite everything. They fit really good. The materials and overall build is high quality. I love the design. It almost balances a fine line between the strictly blue collar Iron Ranger and more svelte boots that look dressy. I look forward to many years, maybe decades, of use.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from What happened to Quality Control ? I will preface by saying that I do own several pairs of Allen Edmonds shoes and am more than pleased with them. This review will pertain strictly to the pair of Normandy Cap Toe Boots which I received: While the boots themselves were pleasing visually, I did not even try them on as there were defects obvious to me even before removing them from the box. Specifically, on both boots the stitching connecting the quarter to the vamp had been severed-on one of the boots the vamp,itself, had also been cut through. While I have no idea how this would occur in the normal course of manufacture, or why there would be a blade in those areas at all, my larger concern is that they were actually shipped to me in that condition. As I mentioned, this defect was apparent to me the moment I pulled back the shipping paper to reveal the boots in their box. I cannot fathom that an inspector would have failed to notice this. Perhaps there is no final inspection? I did return ship these boots the very next day; the only option presented to me for an exchange was to purchase another pair, paid in full, and then await the processing of the defect pair for a refund of my original purchase. This policy differs greatly from even a couple years ago, if I recall correctly, and makes exchanges a bit more cumbersome than I would like-especially given the reason for my return. Due to that, I chose simply to return these boots for a full refund which did take the full 10 business days as stated, here on the website, to process. In the end, though, I purchased three other pairs of Allen Edmonds shoes. The customer service was attentive however, while two pairs were of excellent build and quality, the other also exhibited an obvious manufacturing defect, while still in the box. These were also returned for a refund,sadly. Reading reviews both here and elsewhere on the web, it would seem that my recent experiences are not an exception, unfortunately. I have read it referred to as playing "AE roulette"- ordering multiple pairs in an effort to find one or two free from defects. Frankly, I'd simply prefer to order one pair with the confidence that I am purchasing first quality shoes free from obvious defects. Nonetheless, I will continue to recommend AE with the caveat that buying from an actual store may be preferable to mail order due to quality control issues.

    What polish should I use?

    I just purchased these and used a neutral kiwi polish and rubbed in like with any other pair of AE shoes or boots, but this more textured leather just holds onto much of the polish even after drying. As much as I brush, it now looks like my boots have dandruff except for the cap toe and parts of the heel where the leather is smooth. Any recommendations?
    Asked by: Devin
    Stay away from the petroleum based solvent polish and silicone based conditioners. Look into the Saphir line of shoe care products by going to the Hanger Project web site for information like videos, etc. of these products and to purchase. Get a quality pig bristle shoe/boot brush for the textured leather to help buff and remove polish. The Saphir Product May look expensive, but like quality face creams, lotions, etc. they go along way and are superior in conditioning quality leather footwear. If you spend $400 on a good pair of shoes/boots you will want them to last. The cost of a Saphir cream polish and leather conditioner will be about 10% the cost of the boots or shoes. Consider it a good investment.

    Should I size down when buying this shoe.

    I have seen on reviews were a lot of people recommend sizing down on this boot before I make a purchase should I do a size down I am a 10 and a 1/2 and 1 of my feet is slightly smaller than the other
    Asked by: Robert
    These boots reminded me when I use to wear "jump boots" in the military (they are almost exactly the same), so I remember needing foot pads. Please do your knees and feet a favor and buy in your regular size, so you can add foot pads with arch support.

    Is this new Normandy boot still made from Kudu?

    I have the older Normandy in brown kudu and double leather oak sole. This new one (830x) says it's weatherproof, and it look like there's a sheen to them. Is it still made from Kudu? If not, what kind of leather is it? Safe to wear these in a steady rain? Do you recommend using the new weatherproofing spray on these?
    Asked by: Ducatisti
    I don’t think they are waterproof. I have the dark ones and have sprayed them several times with leather waterproofing spray.

    What’s is the care routine for this leather?

    It currently describes a routine for suede, which this shoe is not.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    I just wipe them down every once and a while. The soles only last me a year, so I have AE do it all once a year
