Why It's Great

It doesn’t get much better than Park Avenue. As our best-selling shoe for over three decades, this is the shoe that made Allen Edmonds the company that it is today. Worn by notable statesmen, chairmen of the board, heads of state and leaders around the world, it is as tastefully serious as any shoe you could find. If you’re looking for that first Allen Edmonds shoe to start your collection, this would be a good place to start.

How It's Made

The Park Avenue is made with only the highest quality calfskin leather and is hand sewn with triple seam stitching across the vamp on our classic 65 Last, making it impossible to recreate. It may often be imitated, but it’s never copied.

How to Wear It

Used with our Premium Shoe Polish, you will become a polish believer, there’s no baked in shine here. As a member of our exclusive Timeless Collection, this cap-toe balmoral exudes an air of prestige, confidence and credibility. Simply put, you can’t go wrong with a Park Avenue. As Lisa Douglas famously said "Darling I love you, but give me Park Avenue!”

Product Care

Allen Edmonds Shoe Care

When caring for your calfskin, use Allen Edmonds Leather Lotion to remove surface residue and to keep leather soft and pliable. To achieve a fine luster, wipe shoes with a damp cloth and allow them to air dry at room temperature. Then, apply a coat of Allen Edmonds Premium Shoe Polish with a cloth or horsehair dauber and allow to air dry.

Our new Dark Chili and Oxblood burnished leathers can be cleaned using a damp cloth to remove dirt and any residue. Follow by using a soft cloth to apply our Allen Edmonds Saddle Soap which cleans all smooth leather shoes while restoring the leather's natural oils.

Further details and videos are available on our Caring for Your Shoes page.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not up to par Ordered one of these for a wedding and upon opening the box you can tell they put in the effort on presentation. Comes with a nice box and two separate cotton baggys for each shoes. Loved it, I'm no expert on shoes so stitching looked fine. I plan on taking care of these shoes for as long as I can because of the price. The shoelaces however were terrible. The tip of the shoelace was already broken, so the tip has expanded so that if I wanted to relace it I would have to get a small pin to force the shoelaces in. Why they sent it out like that I will never know. Now I have great shoes but shoelaces are fluffed at the tip, or I can spend more money on new shoelaces which I shouldn't have too

I Have a 9.5D in the Park Ave. The length is fine but they are just too narrow to wear all day. Do you recommend a 10D or a 9.5E or EE?

My Bartletts, Hopkinsons, and Jeffersons are 10D's. The width is fine but might be just a bit long. Although I am happy overall with them.

Is the park avenue cap toe built on the same last as the byron

Asked by: Anonymous
The Park Avenue is constructed on the 65 Last. The discontinued Byron was made on the 234 Last. 65 LAST Known more simply as the 5 last, the 65 last is our most popular, classic fitting last. The longest in length of all of our lasts; best for a long, narrow look; and often the best fit for those with high arches. Our best-selling Park Avenue is made on the 65 last. 234 LAST The 234 last was the first Allen Edmonds last with a non-rounded toe. The 234 last is modeled after the 97 last for the best fit for the average foot, but with a less pronounced point and subtly squared-off toe. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

How to restore toe cap color?

I have this shoe in Walnut. I stupidly tried to clean them without any thought of watching instructions as this is the first pair of nice shoes I have. I must've rubbed to hard on the top where it is slightly darker than the rest of the shoe, and now the dark color is rubbed off in a circular area exposing a lighter color. How can I darken that area again?
Asked by: Anonymous
Use Allen Edmonds shoe cream and use a soft rag or horse hair shoe dober (sold by Allen Edmonds) and appy generously over the entire shoe. Let the polish dry for several minutes until it becomes a dry dull haze. Then take a horse hair brush and using a brisk motion shine the shoe until it has a bright brilliant finish. You may have to do this several times to get the color consistency back to it’s original condition. If that doesn’t work then try it again leaving the shoe polish on for longer periods of time. The longer you leave the polish on the shoe to dry, the longer it’ll take to get the polish to shine with a horsehair brush. Put a little elbow grease into it when you use your horse hair brush. Repeat as many times as necessary until your shoes look like their original color. This should work. You may also want to use Allen Edmonds leather cream and leave that on your shoes until it’s dried to a dull haze, then repeat the steps above. Good luck and I hope this helps!

Has the design shape of the Park Avenue shoe evolved over the years such that the toe is more rounded today and less pointed?

Asked by: Anonymous
The 65 Last has not changed over the past 30+ years. However edge trimming on the soles has evolved over time and can affect the overall appears of the shoe. Also, in years past, we have used lasts with a more pointed toe shape, to make styles that were similar to the Park Avenue. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

What belts go with this?

I would love to have dark chili color. Will Clay Ave Belt with 75136 Dark Chili goes well with his dark chili shoes?
Asked by: Anonymous
I purchased a Fifth Avenue in dark chili with a Wide Basic belt in dark brown burnished calf (#39507). The colors match perfectly and the style of both the Clay Ave and the Wide Basic are very similar.

Is "5845 Brown" the same color as "Dark Brown Burnished"?

A few years ago I was debating on whether to buy Park Avenues in black or dark brown burnished. In the end, I opted for the black because I wanted to go with a traditional color for job interviews. Now I wanted to buy another pair of Park Avenues, but this time in dark brown burnished color. However, it looks like AE removed it and instead replaced it with "5845 Brown". So was dark brown burnished renamed to 5845 Brown?
Asked by: TheLegend27

Hi. My Walnut Park Avenue's cap toe is a lighter shade than the rest of the shoe. How can I get the cap toe to match the rest of the shoe? Using the premium walnut polish doesn't help to match the darker shades of the shoe. Should I use one of the shoe creams? If so, what shade should I use? Thank you for your time.
Asked by: Orlando Shoe Bro
Use shoe cream. Polish has only the slightest amount of pigment. Also, watch Hangar Project videos on YouTube. They specifically address your issue.
