    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
    Mackenna Plain-Toe Blucher with Dainite Sole is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good last for wide feet, uneven pebbling, overall solid dress casual shoe I have duck feet, very wide with a high arch and high volume, so I was happy to see the AE's EEE width offerings expanded this season. I got the Mackenna in 9.5 EEE and it fit comfortably right out of the box. I took a chance and wore it out for the whole day and did not regret it. The shoe looks great with dress casual or fashion forward outfits, and the broguing at the back is an interesting and unique visual element that I appreciated. I dinged a star for some QC issues - a few spots where the leather die was over or under applied, a few loose threads near the welt joint, imperfect edge dressing, and uneven pebbling throughout the shoe. These aren't noticeable unless somebody is looking very closely, so it's not a deal breaker. I picked these up for $200 on Black Friday, and they are worth that at that price, especially given how rare light brown wide width welted shoes are at this price point. If I were paying full price I would want to see it in person to make sure the QC issues in my shoe were not repeated.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Supposed to be pebbled leather. I just received these and I am disappointed. They are supposed to be pebbled leather, but whole sections are smooth leather. There seems to be a lack of quality control. I think I may have to return these. I have many pairs of Allen Edmonds shoes and the quality has always been superb. Not sure what’s going on with these.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mackenna plain The shoes were good quality and I liked them very much but they were too big. I got them on sale. When I tried to reorder, I was told I would have to pay the full price and then maybe get a refund. There was no place on return paperwork to exchange. Very disappointed. Did not reorder.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from How does AE stay in business? Sizing, last sizes seems to be thoroughly random and inconsistent. Its basically impossible to purchase their shoes online as your "normal" size bares no relationship to your AE size. Most stores dont carry a full selection or full size run so thats not a purchase option either. At some point over the last 10 years, this once stellar company changed its production guidelines and got it completely wrong. Sadly, I am no longer a customer.

    If you choose the Dainite sole, what happens when the heel &/or sole wear down & need replacing? Leather is quick & easy with my cobbler.

    Asked by: Don
    When your sole/heels need replacing, please contact our Recrafting Team at recrafting@allenedmonds.com or 877-495-5564.

    Why are the width options so limited? This is very un AE like.

    Asked by: PAUL
    Hello, Thank you for your inquiry! The Mackenna Plain toe was offered in B, D, E and EEE widths. Unfortunately, we are sold out of the B widths. -AE Consumer Care Dept.
