    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 4.3 out of 5 by 174.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good looking dress shoe that is long lasting and easy to wear I had these Leeds in black for many years and used it in the US Army with dress uniforms on duty and for regular wear off duty. It has been a good looking dress shoe that was easy to wear and has lasted for over 20 years and is still serviceable. I saw that Allen Edmonds (AE) was making Leeds in a cigar (brown with burnish) color so I bought a pair on-line. Received them very quickly via FEDEX. Same AE quality and fit. I use cedar trees in both pair and plan to keep wearing them until they need re-crafting...and then some. These Leeds shoes give a great return on investment. Thanks AE for making great shoes here in the USA.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe The Leeds in cigar are a great looking shoe with solid construction. Occasionally I see that some folks complain about defects in a pair of AE shoes. AE has great customer service and makes exchanges very easy. Personally I think it is worth exchanging a pair if there are real eye catching issues or something is wrong with the fit. I think I had to exchange this pair 2x for different reasons. My first order had a giant crease across the toe box. The second time the fit of the shoe felt off. The 3rd time I received a great looking shoe that fits amazing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If I had to go with only 1 dress shoe it would be the derby. I was issued a black leather derby shoe in 1977 at Army Boot camp. Not sure who made them back then, but they were very similar to this, quality leather and leather soles. I had them resoled once. Wore them many many times they would shine up to a mirror shine with some kiwi and water. My foot grew from size 11 to size 13 over the years so I wanted to find a quality shoe all leather with leather sole. They are hard to find without going into the $700 to $1000 range. I don't wear often enough to justify that kind of price tag. I found an Alan Edmonds derby at a local thrift shop in my size 13 for $90. The sole was in bad shape so a local cobbler was able put a new JR leather sole on and new heels for $160. Some saddle soap and leather balm and some black polish and they are good as new. The quality of Alan Edmonds shoes is undeniable. Even with neglect they last for years and years.

    size 8.5e vs 9d

    hello the size recommendation told me 8.5e would be true to my size. I have a rather wide feet, but would 9d fit my feet as well? I prefer the shoe to have a slimmer last but if 9d doesnt fit like 8.5e, i guess i should buy 8.5e. thx
    Asked by: Anonymous
    We would recommend that you start with the 8.5e and if it does not fit then try a 9.

    How often do you carry cigar polish and cream?

    I'm interested in buying a pair of your cigar Blucher shoes.
    Asked by: Thomas
    Thank you for reaching out to Allen Edmonds! We're sorry to say that we do not have a polish specific to the cigar leathers. For these items, we would recommend using neutral polish.

    Can I custom order a 7B? If it doesn't fit, is it returnable?

    Asked by: Scott
    You'll be pleased to know that you can purchase the Leeds in 7B. However, they are currently backordered 3 weeks. If you purchase a backordered item, the item is returnable. However, if you purchase an item with a custom sole, the shoes are not returnable.

    Why have the Walnut and Oxblood colors been removed?

    Hello, I’d like to know why the oxblood and walnut colors for The Leeds have been removed. Will they be available again at some point for purchase? Or could they be ordered custom-made (as can the Park Avenues)? Thanks!
    Asked by: Bk600
    Unfortunately, walnut and oxblood has been discontinued in this style. There are many factors considered when discontinuing styles such as customer feedback, sales performance, or fashion trends. These are decisions made internally by our design and leadership teams and we're sorry we unable to share specific reasons for the discontinuation of each style. We apologize for any disappointment.
