    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.

    Rafael Chukka Boot is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's good quality overall, but lacking in being a great product It's good quality but doesn't have the fit characteristics typical of AE company made products. It takes longer to break in and I don't think it will ever be as comfortable as the AE products I've bought in the past. I think it's over priced and would rather have put that money toward a Dalton boot.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I really like the boot. No shoe bags. I really like the boot. The leather seems really nice. Good quality sole and heel. These are a 270 degree welt rather than a 360 degree welt on other AEs, which seems to make the heel a bit narrower. The thing that bugs me is that it did not come with any shoe bags. I've been buying AE shoes for 35 years. I've never bought a pair that didn't come with shoe bags. This is not an inexpensive boot. It should come with shoe bags.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Uncomfortable I have several AE shoes and 1 pair of boots. Unfortunately, I have a fit problem, the seam is cutting into the big toe on my left foot. I have worn for a week and hope it will break in but am not sure. At this point the shoe is unwearable and I will be visiting a store to determine what my options are. Bummer because it’s a great style to wear with a suit and casual.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Rafael Chukka Boot This pair of Rafael Chukka Boots are really good, stylish and with good quality. However, it will be much better if rubber sole options are available, because sometimes it is slippery walking on the floor with water or after rain.

    Will this boot accept custom arthotics

    Asked by: Ak
    Hi AK! Thanks for your interest in our Rafeal Chukka boot! This particular style doesn't have a removable insert. However, that doesn't mean it won't work. If you decide to order, please try the shoes inside (on carpet). If they don't work and are unworn, you can always exchange at your local Allen Edmonds store or mail them back for a refund.

    Does this boot have some extra cushioning with insole (e.g., porons)?

    Some Allen Edmonds shoe come with extra cushioning while others come with single leather insole, which is attached to the shoe. Wondering whether (1) there is extra cushioning other than single leather insole or (2) whether the insole is removable.
    Asked by: Jackie27
    The Rafael style is part of the Italian Collection which is crafted using the Bologna Flex construction. Unlike welted shoes, Bologna flex construction attaches the upper directly to the sole without the use of an insole or cork foot bed. The result is a sleeker, lighter and more flexible shoe. Feel free to contact us again if you have additional questions!
