    Care Instructions

    Cordovan leather requires different care than calfskin due to its unique properties. Brush and wipe regularly and apply cream occasionally to protect the leather and maintain its rich color.

    Regular Maintenance:

    Regularly, brush the leather with our Horsehair Shine Brush or wipe with our Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth.

    To Protect and Restore Color, Follow These Steps:

    STEP 1: Wipe your shoe down with a damp cloth and allow to dry.

    STEP 2: Using your Horsehair Dauber, apply a small amount of Cordovan cream in a circular motion.

    STEP 3: While the cream is still slightly wet, take our Horsehair Shine Brush and brush back and forth, heating the cream and leather. This allows the natural oils to move to the surface to bring out the leather's natural shine.

    STEP 4: Next, use the soft side of our Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth to buff the shoe until the surface is no longer tacky. Often, some excess cream will transfer onto the cloth, which is normal.

    STEP 5: Take our Heel Dressing applicator and press against the edge of the heel and sole.

    Leeds Shell Cordovan Derby Shoe is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 165.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from New shoes arrived beat up Just received my new Cordovan Leeds in black and I was surprised as the condition of the shoes were not new. They were obvious a display model as the price sticker was on the shoe and one of the shoes was faded from being on display. At the least, Allen Edmonds should have polished the shoes before sending them to me. I am not sure I will purchase from Allen Edmonds again.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Shoe, but quality is hit and miss So I order these in Brown Cordovan a while back On-line and was told I had to wait 9 weeks for them to make them for me. I though great, if they are making them specifically to fill the order, then I will probably get a decent pair without any quality issues. About 5 weeks went by and I decided to cancel my order, which AE did without an issue (good customer service)... but then they had their $75 off promotion and it included the Cordovan shoes!! So I re-ordered the Brown Cordovan Leeds in 8.5E. Got the same message about having to wait 9 weeks, but those original shoes I had ordered must have been almost done and waiting for someone with my foot size, because less than a week after I order I received my shoes....and...I'm slightly disappointed. The Cordovan line is AE's top of the line, they made these shoes fresh for a specific order, and still they had quality issues. the stitching on the bottom of the left sole sticks up and will probably wear quickly as it rubs against the concrete (trench not cut deep enough) and also the leather on the toe of the outsole is rough and will need some sanding and touch-up... I will say that the upper is generally in good shape, but not perfect... Still, I've decided to keep them and deal with the issues as best I can myself.... mostly because I'm tired of the cycle of sending shoes back to AE and re-ordering supposed "Firsts". I've never commented before, but for a shoe that they sell for $695 , AE needs to do much better. ... This will be my last AE for quite a while, and probably the last one I buy on-line.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Allen Edmonds does it again I ordered the Leeds in Cigar and I customized the sole with Dainite. They arrived in pristine perfect condition and fit perfectly right out of the box. This is my first shoe with Dainite and I was a bit concerned with some reviewers praising them and others having no love at all for them. I have found them perfect. They grip great on hardwood, carpet and of course outside. They also offer a degree of cushion while walking that makes wearing these shoes very comfortable. I only plan on wearing these shoes with jeans and khakis. Being a purist I would never wear Dainite with a suit. As I mentioned, the quality is first rate. These are my 16rh pair of Allen Edmonds and I am just as happy with the workmanship on these shoes as I was on my first pair of Sarotoga’s over 40 years ago. AE, keep up the great work!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from This product shows quality control issues of AE I recently bought a pair of AE Leeds Blucher black dress shoes directly from AE. When I got them and tried them on, I noticed a significant bubble on the inside of the right shoe that creates an uncomfortable ridge. Of note, this was only found in the right shoe and the left shoe was unaffected. I am very disappointed with a company that prides itself on being an American company that takes factory seconds off the line. If this is a factory first one can only imagine a second. If you are to still buy from AE, I would recommend buying them in person. Maybe you can spot issues in a pair before you buy. Looks like I am stuck with a bad pair.

    Any servicemen use these with their Class A uniform?

    Looking for a more comfortable option to the issued plastic shoes that blow out at the welt every year. Does anyone have any experience using these shoes with their Class A uniform?
    Asked by: Fabian
    I have used black Leeds in both calfskin and shell cordovan for years while wearing ASU-A and ASU-B uniforms. They are substantially better than the half dozen other options I’ve tried. I highly recommend them. One pair in particular has been part of my kit for close to a decade, and I’ve only had to send them in for recrafting twice.

    Are the Leeds Plain Toe Dress shoe airport security friendly?

    Asked by: Roger
    Yes, they are airport security friendly. I believe they do have a steel shank in the sole, but it will not set off any metal detectors. I have had this style for the last 16 years and travel through airport security weekly as a pilot.
