    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wide is still a bit thin and narrow but you just need to order a size wider, which I did These are excellent shoes. Like any high quality shoe, it will take a while to break in. Comfortable to a point but a bit narrow.

    Which AE cordovan cream polish color should be used for the chili color (3993) Park Ave Cap-Toe Oxford Cordovan shoe? if you are recommending the Saphir cordovan cream polish product, which color (e.g., neutral, cordovan, fawn, or a specific color selection based on their color guide which is not clear how to use)?
    Asked by: CSW
    We currently do not offer Chili Cordovan Cream, but Brown would be the closest match. We suggest trying it on a inconspicuous area first to make sure you like the results. Feel free to visit an Allen Edmonds retail store if you wish to try it before purchasing it. Thank you for your question!
