    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.

    Rainier Split-toe Blucher Boot is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The devil is sort of in the details I'll try to keep this one short, I promise. On the positive side, these are just an all-around sturdy, solid and comfortable platform. I normally wear a 7D and went with that here (same as what I took for the Higgins Mill) and the result, while more snug than the CXL HM, is very good. The 1757 is just a very accommodating last; even though I have a high instep and narrow overall width, the flatness of the 1757 vamp is offset by the very generous toebox, yet the heel still manages to stay about "normal." I loved the CXL HM enough that I picked up two pairs, but the It's Hide commando sole on the Rainier at least in my opinion is hands-down better in terms of support. Whereas the Long Branch transitioned from a true lug sole to the soft gumlite, the Rainier uses the "real deal." The Rainier is clearly one of the best products AE has put out since the rebranding happened, and I honestly can't say enough good things about it. On the negative side...and going back to my title. When the Rainier first came out, I didn't even remotely consider it given what I considered a fairly ridiculous pricetag. It's come down, and with the sales it became a lot more palatable, but at MSRP or close to that, no way. I don't know what it is, and maybe this is a very subjective assessment, but the Rainier just isn't very good looking. There are two other manufacturers, one that begins with "A" and the other that begins with "G," that both produce similar split-toe boots, and in terms of aesthetics (use of bright contrast stitching), and materials (availability of cxl in different colors vs. grain only), I would much prefer a boot from either of these companies over the Rainier. I can't figure out either the lack of contrast stitching or the color choices. Brown grain isn't bad...but it isn't great either. The cognac color (which is more like a uniform orangy tan) is a tougher color to me; a more casual color that is kind of difficult to dress up at all. I really wish they would have done cxl and in more varieties. What else. Well, one thing I always complained about regarding the Sauk Drive (which was another really good product) was the lack of speedhooks, combined with rough, unfinished brass eyelets where the grommet backings would rip and chew through the laces, eventually shredding them and causing them to break. And the no speedhooks, rough eyelets are right back here on the Rainier. Finally, the finishing just seems sloppy overall, and I've seen many pairs where the split toe is crooked or "off" on either one or both boots. Just kind of hard to stomach going back to the high pricetag. Please understand that all of these negatives are quite small, really even "in the noise." I would really rate this product a 4.5 if that was possible. I thought the HM was one of the best things ever, and the Rainier is in many regards better than the HM. And yet the HM is still a lot more popular. So I guess I would put it this way. If you aren't already loaded with boots. You are looking for a rock solid platform that you can sort of "use and abuse" without too much fuss. You don't mind grain leather and were considering the grain HM (I can assure you, the Rainier's grain is softer and far nicer), and the lack of speedhooks doesn't deter you. The 1757 works for you TTS. I'd say go for this. On the other hand, if you have lots of boots already. You are looking for a split toe boot, but aesthetics are very important. You aren't in love with grain, you'd prefer cxl, and you like speedhooks. In that case, I'd say maybe pick these up on sale. I think these are all-around better than the grain HM, but there are definitely people who will prefer the CXL HM to the Rainier. This is honestly a real pity; I'm sort of sad in a way to see these being overlooked in the way they are.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from THE BOOT DOESN'T COME IN A B WIDTH ! I ordered the boot over the phone with a sales person and ordered a 11 1/2 B, The lady on the phone did not tell me that they did not offer the boot in different widths, So when the boot showed up in a 11 1/2 D I was not pleased. The box that the boots came in was broken and beat up. Not something I would store my Allen Edmonds boots in. The new box design is CRAP ! FROM A LOYAL CUSTOMER, xxxxxxxx xxxx

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boot at sale price Great boot for split-toe blucher style. Very comfortable for all day urban use. "Relaxed Fit" enables all-day comfort. Durable; yet, soft leather. Just wish last two lace holes were speed lace despite being traditional blucher.

    7 eyelets but no hooks

    Why are the top three eyelets not hooks? Without hooks, it seems like these boots would be a pain to get on/off. I love them but the lack of hooks is preventing me from buying them.
