    Care Instructions

    STEP 1: Using a damp cloth or sponge, lather saddle soap and apply onto leather to clean and restore its natural oils.

    STEP 2: Moisturize the shoes with cream polish to make them supple and soft, following instructions on the product.

    STEP 3: Next condition the shoes with speed polish, protecting them from dirt, rain and snow.

    STEP 4: Take the heel dressing applicator and press against the edge of the heels and soles.

    STEP 5: Apply leather lotion as needed for added protection and polish between cleanings.

    *For camo printed material, simply rub leather lotion onto print with a white cloth as needed and wipe smudges or dirt away with a damp white cloth.

    Boulevard Cap Toe Dress Shoe is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 51.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decent uppers, but quality of sole is lacking These were the first Allen Edmond shoes that I purchased these about a year ago. The quality of the leather on the shoe and craftsmanship was what I expected from the hefty price tag (hence the two stars). I've taken great care of them, wearing them at most 2 days a week, some weeks not at all, so maybe a total of 60-70 wears, mostly driving into the office, some days walking from Grand Central a few blocks to a meeting. The problem exists in the quality of one of the soles of the shoes. With my rotation as mentioned above, I have never had to replace a sole in less than two and a half years, many lasting well over 3 from such brands as Cole Haan and Johnston & Murphy. However one of the soles quickly developed a soft spot and has a hole in it. The other sole is still rock solid, giving me the expectation that it should last at least another 2 years as I'm accustomed to. So the quality control of their leather is apparently not up to the competition. When I reached out to customer support about the issue they suggested I have the shoes recrafted for $125, even though one is fine and not in need of repair. Given my experience with the quality of their soles, you can bet I'll go to my cobbler who uses higher quality materials for half the price. Very disappointed with my purchase, I'll be going back to brands that I've had better experiences with. I know many who have purchased Allen Edmond and have not had this experience, but if you look through some of the reviews this seems to be more common in recent years. Maybe they are growing too fast for their quality control processes...

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality I purchased this shoe a year ago and after one year of wear and tear (I normally alternate between this and other shoes so technically I used them for half a year), I can't wear them anymore because one shoe has a hole in the sole. I went to the store on Madison Ave and 56st and they told me it was not surprise shoes' sole need to be fixed after a year. Good to know because that means next time I'll shop somewhere else..I mean, for the price I paid these shoes should last longer. I am very disappointed by both, quality and customer service.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed Feelings I know the quality of the leather is top notch, but the construction is not what I expected my first pair of AE shoes to be. First, it took 5 mail orders to fit my usual 9.5D or 10D (depending on the brand) foot to finally fit in a 9E. All reviews of this shoe show this. Second, it is technically called a toe cap but there isn’t a tie cap, just a strip of broguing awkwardly places so there are creases in front of the “toe cap” That right there defeats the purpose of a tie cap and makes me aware that these shoes are not going to last as long as I hear AE’s should last. With that, after 2 days of wear, they became very comfortable

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe, quality control needs to tighten up. Ordered my first pair of Boulevards in late May. Those were a 9.5 3E. I didn't expect the 65 last to run so narrow and long. The 9.5 3E ended up being way too big. I went down a full size and exchanged them for an 8.5 3E. Those ended up being much too tight in the toe box. I finally exchanged those for a 9 3E, and that pair ended up being a perfect fit! After several months, the shoe is still holding up and looks great. (Given, I do polish and condition my shoes weekly.) Throughout the whole exchange process, AE's customer service was prompt and accommodating. They were great! My only gripe with the whole experience is that on each shoe I received, there was at least one quality control issue. They varied between the captoe being stitched on slightly crooked, goodyear welt stitched out of alignment with the routing on the sole, and lumps in the cork midsole (this will even out over time and break-in). For a shoe that retails ~$400, you would expect better quality control. AE's customer service is what made the experience worth it in the end. Overall, it's a great shoe and is constructed with great quality if you can acquire a good one. Keep up the good customer service, AE!

    Shinnng these shoes

    When I shine these shoes, they do not seem to take on much of a shine and remain dull. What can I do?
    Asked by: Dmca
    We recommend cleaning the dust or dirt off the upper, and if you use a damp rag let it dry before applying polish. Apply an even coat of Speed Polish or Carnauba Wax Polish with a soft cloth to the entire upper, then brush vigorously with the Horse Hair Shine Brush. You can focus on the toes an heels for an extra shine. Repeat until you achieve your desired results. Feel free to contact us again if you have additional questions!

    Sizing question

    If I wear a 10.0EEE in the Strand and Park Avenue (understanding they are more long and narrow than average), what size would I wear in the Boulevard? Most of the time with other brand blucher-style dress shoes (like Johnston Murphy, etc.) I wear 10.5 regular or wide. The Boulevard is a blucher style so I am guessing it fits a bit loser than the Strand or Park Avenue? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    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: https://www.allenedmonds.com/stores If that's not possible, we suggest starting with the same size you usually wear and judging the fit based on how comfortable you feel in the shoes. Keep in mind that products purchased on AllenEdmonds.com may be returned within 90 days, as long as the item is unworn and accompanied by the packing slip (we advise trying the shoes on a carpeted surface to keep them in returnable condition).

    Shoe Tree During Break-In

    Should you use a shoe tree as you are breaking in the shoe during the first few weeks?
    Asked by: Matthew
    The main purpose of cedar shoe trees is to maintain the shoe's shape. Due to the nature of the leather, leather shoes can curl upwards if shoe trees are not used. We recommend inserting shoe trees whenever the shoes are not in use. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
