    Rated 1 out of 5 by from disappointing I received a defective product, it was my first Allen Edmonds and to be honest I don't know what the fuss is all about, not the best quality, visible leather defects, and asymmetric stitching causing the leather to fold/wrinkle in a weird way when taking a step., color shade is different than the picture, buggy website made the whole experience even worse, I think I'm sticking with alternative for now

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Marks on Suede I bought this boot twice and each time there were track marks on the suede by the top of the ankle. I don't know if it's the manufacturing or packaging, but for a $300-$400 boot it was very disappointing. Everything else about the shoe I liked, supportive sole, good fit, color was nice, etc.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, stylish boot I love these boots. The challenge with a Chelsea is the boot being narrow. these are the perfect fit, just wide enough but still a sleek look. i look the look and they are very comfortable. Bought matching belt. Love that as well

    Is it normal to have a line mark on the suede near the front top of the heel?

    It looks like in the pictures there's a vertical line mark in the suede. This also appears in the pair that I ordered. I'm wondering why is there a line?
    Asked by: William
    Thanks for your inquiry! Yes, it's normal to have a line/mark. Our leather is not corrected grain, so you see the natural markings in the hyde. Hope this information helps!

    I wear size 7.5 for dress shoes, what size should I buy for boots?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    At Allen Edmonds, we believe the right fit is vitally important. We recommend a professional fitting by an Allen Edmonds associate at your nearest retail location or an authorized Allen Edmonds dealer. Find a store near you: If that's not possible, we suggest trying the same size you usually wear and judging the fit based on how comfortable you feel in the shoes.

    Recrafting the elastic

    Is there an expectation for the elastic to wear out before the leather? Would recrafting these boots replace the elastic, or only the sole?
    Asked by: MR.R2
    The elastic is not expected to fail or wear out prematurely unless it's being stretched more than it should be. The elastic is not replaced during Recrafting. Feel free to contact us again if you have additional questions.

    42 last

    How does this 42N last differ from 42 last?
    Asked by: William
    There is no difference, it's the same last. The 42 Last combines the excellent fitting heel characteristics of the 65 last with a broad, almond shaped modern toe. This last has a generous fitting from the ball through the toe area and has a sleek profile through the arch and instep.
