    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.

    Strand Cap-toe Oxford is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 884.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great business and casual shoe This is my second pair of EA shoes I bought. Like the Fifth Avenue I bought them in NY, but these in Walnut. As the Fifth Avenues, they are perfect to wear, look stunning and are extremely comfortable. I most of the time wear them with blue Jeans and they are my go to shoes when I am not 100% sure if I should go formal or casual.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from First Quality?? Was excited to receive my new shell Strands, and was so disappointed when I opened the box. One of the shoes had a patch of discoloration on the counter and the other was worse. On both sides of the shoe the counter was not laying flat against the quarter. AE, how did this shoe pass your QC? Shells should be the best of the best. These shoes were discounted $200, so I thought I was getting a bargain, I love the Strand and have several pair in my closet. Now I’m wondering if AE is trying to pass off seconds as first quality shoes. AE has been my brand for years, as I could always count on their classic designs and quality and I was willing to pay for it. Don’t sacrifice quality to compete, if you do you will lose your customers forever. These shoes are on their back to you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied with the quality of this American product. I have purchased Allen-Edmunds shoes for over 50 yrs and have always been very satisfied with this world class product. I also know that I can send my shoes back to the factory for any serious maintenance issues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish, Quality, comfortable, Prestiegeious Brand Made In The USA. AE is an iconic USA-made brand that has withstood the test of time and has not cheapened their labor to choose quantity over quality. The result? Very well made, stylish, durable, comfortable shoes that will last you a decade, with proper care. The Strands are no exception. They are beautifully crafted, and you can spot the AE quality marks a mile away. The one thing to beware of is fit. This last (also used for the Fifth Avenues and Bartletts) runs NARROW. I'm usually a 10 D, but hearing these run narrow got a 9.5 E. when they came in the mail they were too tight and I had to go to a 9.5 EEE. I recommend trying fit in store. Then I recommend buying these!

    What belt with pattern has the same color walnut?

    We suggest pairing this style with the Manistee or the Wide Basic dress belt in Walnut. With that said, any of our Walnut belts will coordinate nicely with the Walnut styles. Feel free to contact us again if you have additional questions!

    Can you tell us a bit more about coffee, please?

    Is it replacing burnished brown? Or is it more similar to chili or bourbon? In other words, how dark is it, and does it have any hues in a color other than brown, such as red (like chili), green (like bourbon), or orange (like walnut)? It is, as ever, somewhat hard to tell from the online photos against the white background.
    Asked by: srlclark
    HI, I just got a pair of the coffee, and its brown like coffee. I'm seriously considering exchanging mine for chili... .

    Can you wear oxblood strands with jeans?

    Can you wear jeans with oxblood strands?
    Asked by: Eric
    Yes, you can wear jeans with Oxblood Strands. However, this is a matter of preference as well as fashion rules. The Oxblood will work best with dark denim, or even black jeans. Never baggy because although jeans are a casual look, the idea is to look as dress casual as possible, and the Strand IS, after all, an Oxford, which tends toward being more dressed a look. Keep the length to either fitted or a slight roll to accommodate the shoe. Never too long or with dragging or shredded cuffs.

    Looking for a dressy shoe. Have high arch in 3E. Which is best, brown Strand, cordovan Strand or brown Bartlett? Chip

    Asked by: Chip
    The Strand is constructed on the 65 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. It is vitally important to visit an Allen Edmonds retail store or retail partner for a professional fitting to increase your chances of being fit correctly for each last and style. However, keep in mind that products purchased on AllenEdmonds.com may be returned at any time, as long as the item is unused and accompanied by the packing slip.  Trying the shoes on a carpeted surface will help prevent scuffing on the sole and keep the shoes in returnable condition.

    Do gentlemen usually purchase two of the same shoe in different colors?

    I currently have the Strand in Oxblood and the Fifth Ave in Walnut. I am thinking about purchasing the Strand in Walnut due to the beautiful character of the shoe. Just wondering if anyone else purchases the same shoe in multiple colors. Thank you.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Yes, I have the Strand in both black and walnut. Also have the same slip on in black and cordovan.
