    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 cleaning.


    Relaxed Fit

    The relaxed fit has added space in the toe box. This extra room allows for thicker socks and foot expansion that occurs at the end of the day or during a long flight.

    Is the shoe made from genuine patent leather or fron a synthetic material?

    The question was asked before, but not satisfactorily answered. Specifically, I'd like to know if the "patent" leather used to make the shoe is a synthetic, or if it is made from genuine leather that has received various coatings to achieve the glossy finish.
    Asked by: Steverino
    Allen Edmonds shoes, including this style, are made using real animal hides, we do not use synthetic leathers. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    Which last and leather

    Which last is the La Scala built on? And is they patent leather made from genuine leather that is coated or is it one of the "fake" layers that is basically plastic?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The La Scala is made using Patent Leather and constructed using the Bologna construction in Italy, so it is not built on our traditional lasts. It's a very different type of construction than our welted styles. It is vitally important to visit an Allen Edmonds retail store or retail partner for a professional fitting to increase your chances of finding a proper fit. If that's not possible, typically we recommend trying the same size you usually wear and judge the fit based on how comfortable you feel in the shoes. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    Will a cobbler be able to resole this shoe?

    I see that the shoe is not recraftable by AE. Will it be feasible for a non-AE cobbler to resole the shoe? Or is the construction such that it will have to be thrown out once the sole wears out?
    Asked by: Alexander
    That may be a question for your cobbler as it depends on their familiarity with the Italian Bologna construction and willingness to work on the shoes. Keep in mind, frequency and commute lengths will certainly affect the life of the shoe. This type of style is mostly intended for special occasions. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
