  • Care

    We believe a great pair of shoes or boots is always a solid long-term investment. To keep your favorite footwear in top form for years or even decades to comes, use our 4 Step Shoe Care Process and these essential products.

    1. Clean

    Start by applying Saddle Soap with a Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth to remove stains and dirt from the uppers and bring up the leather's natural oils.

    2. Polish

    Next, use a Horsehair Dauber to treat your footwear with Cream Polish which renews the color and luster of leather. Any time you want to achieve a truly glossy, high shine, you should instead apply Carnauba Wax Polish.

    3. Dress

    Restore the color and surface of the leather on the heels and soles using Heel Dressing.

    4. Protect

    Leather Lotion keeps uppers soft, supple and hydrated while a Horsehair Shine Brush is perfect for buffing your shoes to the desired shine. As a last step, spray on Water Protector to guard against harmful moisture and spills and use a Leather Dopp Kit to keep all your care products organized.

    Leeds Dress Plain-toe Blucher Shoe is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 178.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted I’ve worn the Park Avenues (cap-toes) for decades, and as I’ve gotten older they’ve become more uncomfortable. I decided to give The Leeds plain toes a try, and they work perfectly. They’re not tight at all, and they’re very comfortable. There is a lot more room in the toebox. I did go with the leather soles, rather than the rubber soles. All in all, I’m very happy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my go to shoe. I have many styles of Allen Edmonds dress shoes. This is the best one because I can walk up to 4 or 5 miles on sidewalks nad streets on any given day - and these shows are comfortable. For that reason I have several pairs in different colors.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good looking dress shoe that is long lasting and easy to wear I had these Leeds in black for many years and used it in the US Army with dress uniforms on duty and for regular wear off duty. It has been a good looking dress shoe that was easy to wear and has lasted for over 20 years and is still serviceable. I saw that Allen Edmonds (AE) was making Leeds in a cigar (brown with burnish) color so I bought a pair on-line. Received them very quickly via FEDEX. Same AE quality and fit. I use cedar trees in both pair and plan to keep wearing them until they need re-crafting...and then some. These Leeds shoes give a great return on investment. Thanks AE for making great shoes here in the USA.

    size 8.5e vs 9d

    hello the size recommendation told me 8.5e would be true to my size. I have a rather wide feet, but would 9d fit my feet as well? I prefer the shoe to have a slimmer last but if 9d doesnt fit like 8.5e, i guess i should buy 8.5e. thx
    Asked by: Anonymous
    We would recommend that you start with the 8.5e and if it does not fit then try a 9.

    Can I custom order a 7B? If it doesn't fit, is it returnable?

    Why have the Walnut and Oxblood colors been removed?

    Hello, I’d like to know why the oxblood and walnut colors for The Leeds have been removed. Will they be available again at some point for purchase? Or could they be ordered custom-made (as can the Park Avenues)? Thanks!
    Asked by: Bk600
    Unfortunately, walnut and oxblood has been discontinued in this style. There are many factors considered when discontinuing styles such as customer feedback, sales performance, or fashion trends. These are decisions made internally by our design and leadership teams and we're sorry we unable to share specific reasons for the discontinuation of each style. We apologize for any disappointment.
