    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.

    Sanford Cap-Toe Derby Dress Shoe is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 199.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks good, but that’s all. The stitching for the welt on these shoes started coming undone within a week of receiving them and two or three wears. Which is unfortunate, because I like the shoes a lot otherwise. I am not sure how much this brand can be relied on for a quality shoe, so I won’t even consider buying a more expensive pair after my experiences or recommend Allen Edmonds to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe, very satisfied!!! IF the shoe fits-WEAR IT!! My problem has always been that I have a very wide foot and a high instep-rather hard to fit. AE has always been a good fit for me, not all styles, but the shoes I purchase are the ones I like.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Look I bought these because I have been delinquent in sending my other dress shoes to be recrafted and needed something in a hurry for an event. These were on sale, but only available in a D not the C I normally wear. So I took the chance that they might fit acceptably. They feel comfortable, but are apparently a bit too wide as when tightly laced the vamp does not lie completely flat. Hardly noticeable to others perhaps, but I notice. Overall, I am satisfied with the purchase--quality seems great with the exception of some loose stitching on the topline of the back of shoes. I would prefer the topline not have pinking, but otherwise really like the look. My first derbys so I will know better next time to be more attentive to width.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing I’ve been buying these for 10 years, but this pair is really disappointing. Loose stitching after 2 weeks and the color is not quite walnut. It’s a blend of several colors and impossible to match with a belt.

    I wear orthotics in my shoes which require the removal of the insole. Is this possible to do with your shoes?

    Asked by: BJ70
    I have to wear an Arizona foot brace for a torn posterior ankle tendon and wear a size 11 in an Allen Edmond shoe. I went to DFW shoe store and bought a pair of lace up brown and black Bostonians in 11W and was able to wear them. Takes some practice putting them on without a shoe horn and removing the console, but they work! Wear suits to work and needed dress shoes.
