    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made and a good value I have a couple of pairs of suede shoes, but none as well made as these.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Noce looking, bad soles Loved these and fit well. But the “gummy” bottoms turned black and the bottom is now peeling off after only 4-5 times wearing. Very disappointed.

    Can these be resoled with non-crepe bottoms?

    I love the shape of these but hate how dirty crepe soles get. Any way to replace with vibram sole instead?
    Asked by: PNW
    The Cove Drive is eligible for Recrafting and when the time comes to have the soles replaced you may choose a sole conversion option with the Standard or Prestige package. To learn more about Recrafting, please follow this link: Thank you for your question!

    Crepe soles are generally cemented, is re-crafting basically just cementing another crepe sole? if re-crafting is ordered would it be in the US or DR?
    Asked by: jp
    The Cove Drive is a welted style and the crepe sole is stitched to the upper. You can request a sole replacement through our Recrafting service. The prices shown on our Recrafting page are in USD. Feel free to contact us again if you have additional questions!

    Why would I want a pair of AE's made in the Dominican?

    I buy AE shoes because they have traditionally been high quality and made in the USA. If you change either of these qualities I will move to Alden or British brands.
    Asked by: Brad
    The Cove Drive is part of our ‘ae by Allen Edmonds’ collection that is handcrafted in our Dominican Republic factory, which is our own factory and employees. With that said, this collection is not our main focus and it’s a small percent of our sales. However, the success of this collection has played a part in helping us continue to grow with stores and sales jobs here in the USA. Rest Assured, Allen Edmonds’ main focus is the classic welted styles which comprises the majority of our sales and we make these styles in our Wisconsin factory. If you're looking for a suede plain-toe style handcrafted in our Wisconsin factory, we recommend the Heinrich, Nomad Buck, Nomad Chukka, or Liverpool. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    What belt matches the blue suede?

    I need a belt to match. Please always provide a belt as an accessory that works for an item.
    Asked by: Brenden
    We currently do not offer a matching belt for this style. We apologize for the inconvenience. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    I usually wear narrow width. In fact, my AE Park Avenues are 8B. Wondering if this D-width casual on 212 last will work.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    It is vitally important to visit an Allen Edmonds retail store or retail partner for a professional fitting to increase your chances of finding a proper fit. If that's not possible, typically we recommend trying the same size you usually wear and judge the fit based on how comfortable you feel in the shoes.   Keep in mind that products purchased on may be returned at any time, as long as the item is unused and accompanied by the packing slip.  Trying the shoes on a carpeted surface will help prevent scuffing on the sole and keep the shoes in returnable condition.

    Does the Cove Drive use Charles F. Stead suede like the Sea Island?

    Asked by: Dan P
    We do not use it on the Cove Drive. We recommend the Nomad Buck Derby as that style features C.F. Stead suede. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
