    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 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 395.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chili color- Nice looking quality shoe I purchased them off the website with no discounts or sale. I have a pair of Park Avenue in this same size but this shoe's fit was a little big, maybe because it is a slip-on. It appears to be crafted well and there were no problems with the shoe. As for the insole, it does not appear to have enough arch support for me. The new policy of only providing 1 over sized shoe bag for both shoes is not adequate to protect the shoes from scarring each other. I will and have recommended this company.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Catching up on review This was my first pair of AE, now 7 pairs and counting. They have been worn but looking great. The leather is still soft pliable and flawless, try that on a off the rack retail shoe. I use black Saphir on them with shoe trees. I don't wear them as much due to not dressing up, current situation in mind. They are not, to me, a casual jeans shoe. But what a great addition when needed.

    How will this fit compared to non- cordovan Grayson?

    I have been wearing Grayson's for well over 20 years. I have 5 pair in rotation now. I have a true EEE foot with a high instep and no ankles ( cankles, I believe they are called). My last pair was purchased about two or three years ago, and the left shoe seriously chafed my ankle at the back, although I purchased the same size I have been wearing all this time. I ultimately had to have the shoe stretched to make it wearable. I don't want to have the same issue with a $600 pair of shoes. Will the sizing be affected by cordovan? I am on the edge over this. I do love my Grayson's.
    Asked by: Tom in New Hampshah
    All Grayson styles are true-to-size as they are designed based on the sizing standards of the Brannock Device. With that said, the materials used may affect the way a shoe feels, but that depends a lot on your personal preferences or sensitivity. We suggest trying the shoes on carpet before wearing them to ensure a proper and comfortable fit. Trying shoes on carpet will keep them in returnable condition.

    What is a 'Combination Tap Sole' versus a Regular AE Sole?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    Combination Tap-Soles are a combination of leather and rubber. They have a classic dress profile, but with a flexible rubber forepart and rubber heel that provide enhanced traction.

    Have been having trouble with AE sizing. How can I get my feet measured for proper fit?

    I thought I wore an 11 1/2 C (D for casual shoes). The Tate fits perfectly; my second pair of Cavanaghs (same size), even after allowing for breaking in-- are too narrow and seemingly too short.

    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.
