    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.

    Grayson Dress Loafer with Combination Tap Sole is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 381.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Grayson, Oxblood, Mens 9B I own (2) pairs of AE Grayson model: (1) Oxblood & (1) Black. The last of the new pair of Grayson Oxblood's received were .25" longer & .25" wider in the heel counter. Hence, they were too big for my feet. My heel readily slipped out when walking. My existing pairs which are 10-15 years old respectfully & religiously maintained with AE shoe trees fit tighter than this new pair. My only surmise is that the last has changed significantly. This new pair was returned.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking shoe As a wearer of custom orthotics, finding the proper fit can be difficult. I received a pair of these and they are a perfect fit without the orthotics inserted. With them in, the shoes are a bit tight. Ergo, I ordered a second pair that are wider. Once they are received, I'll make a choice between the two pair and return the other.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great shoe I have never been disappointed by anything I have bought at AE. These remind me of my old Nettleton tassel loafers. The fit is consistent. The quality is there.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product has great features but after wearing once I think the size is a half size to big for me When you buy a EEE the sizing of the shoe should be a half size smaller

    Why only EEE width available in size 8 shell cordovan Grayson ?

    Website reloaded so many times today as I was attempting to order a new pair of park ave so had to phone in order. Had decided to purchase a pair of Grayson shell cordovans as I have 2 pair in calf, Black and Tan. Was shocked that only width showing available was EEE, really ? Unbelievable that would be a popular width. Checked back thru my old catalogues to find cordovans used to be available in black and burgundy and in widths for the Grayson. Have approx 8 pair of AEs, tassel loafers, calf oxfords, older pair of wovens and drivers. Seems like selections are more limited now, hope the current owners know what they are doing. Guess I'm forced to find my shell cordovan tassel loafers elsewhere, but I certainly attempted to purchase them from AE...sorry. Hope website gets attended to soon.

    Hello, Thank you for your inquiry! We regret to inform you that the Cordovan Grayson loafers in burgundy are a closeout style. Unfortunately, we have limited sizes available and we will not be receiving any new inventory. -AE Consumer Care Dept.

    I wear a size 11D Wingham. The Cordovan Grayson size 11 is only available in width sizes B and EE. What size is recommended?

    Asked by: WFH
    Each style can fit differently based on the contours of your feet, so it’s difficult to recommend a size virtually and guarantee a proper fit. Typically, we recommend trying the same size you usually wear and judging the fit based on how comfortable you feel in the shoes. If possible, we’d love to have you visit an Allen Edmonds retail store or one of our retail partners for a professional fitting. Our associates are trained to help you find the right fit for the various lasts and styles we offer. Also, 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).
