    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.

    Ask & Answer
    Carlyle Plain-toe Oxford is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Squeaks First time I’ve ever bought a pair of dress shoes that squeaked. Emailed AE and they said to condition the shoes. (I didn’t need another project) The colors listed it brown but it’s really a dark chocolate brown color. It’s just an odd color brown. The right shoe seems a little bit narrow in the ball of my foot. Don’t know that’s a design flaw or manufacturing flaw. I did at least buy them on sale.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great classic wardrobe essential In short, one of my favorite business dress shoes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing dress shoes! This is a wonderful pair of dress shoes. The fit is true to size and they are comfortable out of the box. I purchased the brown and could not be happier with the look and comfort level. I always receive compliments when I wear these shoes. A great addition to anyone's closet!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Darn near perfect This is my 3rd pair of Allen Edmonds in as many weeks (I’ve kinda gone “all in” on AE). The Carlyles are probably the best fit yet for me with this particular last fitting my foot quite well. The leather is soft and supple and feels noticeably better than the Sanfords and Nomad Short Wings, not that the leather on those isn’t nice. The color, brown, is dark and rich and a great addition to my closet. The flat laces are a nice touch.

    Length and fit

    The toe is a bit pointy - where should my toes end? I seem to have a bit of room above my big toe, perhaps an inch, which seems way too much. This means the sizing is large as I normally wear a 13 but the extra room suggests I need return and get a 12.

    Hello, Thank you for your inquiry! Our shoes should fit comfortably snug right out the box. If there is significant room in the toe box area, we recommend sizing down. -AE Consumer Care Dept.
