    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.

    Park Avenue Cap-toe Oxford is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 1090.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the money I bought these and the McAllisters about a year ago. The McAllisters are more comfortable and are wearing better. I rotate so that I never wear either shoe more than 3 days a week. The Park Avenues already have a hole in both soles. I work in a carpeted office? I am told my only option is a re-craft. For this price, I can buy a new pair of an inexpensive brand every year for a few years! I expected better quality for this price. This quality is not worth the money.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product has been defective First let me preface this by saying Allen Edmond shoes fit me really well, are true to size and are comfortable to wear. Now for the issues i have. I ordered a pair of black park avenues, and when they arrived I noticed that there were some irregular crease marks at the top of the heel and there were also two very distinct indentations on the side of the right shoe that looked as if it had been gripped with a pair of pliers. I could not live with these types of defects so I decided to send them back thinking that these particular pair had just slipped through the cracks and no big deal. I ordered another pair of black park avenues because I needed them for work purposes and sent the other pair back. Today I received my second pair of shoes that I ordered and they too were also defective! They have a small bulge on the inside of the shoe and on the front of the shoe there is an irregularity in the leather that is noticeable. I have a pair of factory second Allen Edmond Fifth Avenue shoes that are of better quality than the two pair of Park Avenue shoes that I have received. I contacted customer service to find a way to resolve this situation and I was told that the resolution center would follow up with me in 3-7 business days! Really? You have my money, you sent me defective shoes and now I have to wait 3-7 days for Allen Edmond to contact me. No product quality and now no customer service. Just WOW!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Custom quality at factory prices Look carefully at the Allen Edmonds Park Avenue between the heal and ball of the insole and then compare them to the other brands you may wear. You will notice that the insole on the Park Avenue has a fairly significant curvature in the instep/ arch area. Most other brands are fairly straight in this same portion of the shoe. Why does it matter? The inward curvature of the insole causes the upper to form a suspension bridge under you arch which translates to all day comfort. On lower quality shoes it’s easier and cheaper just to make the arch/ instep section of the shoes more or less straight. The AE classic lasts like the 65, 97 and the 108 are ergonomic and promote healthy foot function when sized properly. I want to publicly thank the Allen Edmonds team for making an outstanding product.

    Matching belt

    I purchased the dark chili Park Avenue cap-toes and a chili burnished calf wide dress belt, which I assume to be the closest match. The colors are similar but not exact. Is there a belt color that’s a closer match?
    Asked by: Ryan
    Thank you for reachinig out to us. We would recommend the Manistee belt in Dark Chili.

    Why are my new dull in sheen?

    I was so excited to get a new pair of high quality shoes, did some research on line and liked the look of the Park Avenue Cap-Toe Oxfords. The shoes shown on your site have a shiny sheen to them. I was willing to pay up but when I opened the box the shoes had a matte sheen. Not classy, more casual. Is this normal or did I get a bad pair? I ordered through Nordstrom. I just want to make sure before making a decision. If this is the case, I will go back to Clarks or look elsewhere. Thanks
    Asked by: Tom
    It sounds like you got the normal park avenue shoes, not the cordovan ones. The normal park avenues have a more matte finish.

    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.
    Asked by: HT
    Had same problem. 9.5 3E. Perfect ....after trying 9.5. 2E, 10D, 10.5D....lol

    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!
