  • Care

    We believe a great pair of shoes or boots is always a solid long-term investment. To keep your favorite footwear in top form for years or even decades to comes, use our 4 Step Shoe Care Process and these essential products.

    1. Clean

    Start by applying Saddle Soap with a Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth to remove stains and dirt from the uppers and bring up the leather's natural oils.

    2. Polish

    Next, use a Horsehair Dauber to treat your footwear with Cream Polish which renews the color and luster of leather. Any time you want to achieve a truly glossy, high shine, you should instead apply Carnauba Wax Polish.

    3. Dress

    Restore the color and surface of the leather on the heels and soles using Heel Dressing.

    4. Protect

    Leather Lotion keeps uppers soft, supple and hydrated while a Horsehair Shine Brush is perfect for buffing your shoes to the desired shine. As a last step, spray on Water Protector to guard against harmful moisture and spills and use a Leather Dopp Kit to keep all your care products organized.

    Strand Cap-Toe Oxford is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1136.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great business and casual shoe This is my second pair of EA shoes I bought. Like the Fifth Avenue I bought them in NY, but these in Walnut. As the Fifth Avenues, they are perfect to wear, look stunning and are extremely comfortable. I most of the time wear them with blue Jeans and they are my go to shoes when I am not 100% sure if I should go formal or casual.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely comfortable American made shoes I bought these Strand cap toes shoes in dark chili as dress shoes because of all the positive reviews on this site stressing the comfort level. I wore them a couple of times for dressy occasions, but decided to wear them more as casual shoes with jeans because of the great fit and comfort they provide. These are by far one of the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn right from the first wearing. They have sustained their share of scuffs and scrapes, but the overall worn patina is what makes them a standout with jeans. You can't go wrong with these shoes for comfort and style. Step out of the rut, and try these as casual shoes for their superb fit and comfort while adding a little extra to your casual style.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful olive green shoe I bought the olive green woven strands. The green is luxurious, and the fit is typical 65 - snug and confident, like an Italian sports car. I want to condition them with olive oil, but I know better.

    Cordovan 8 = Burgundy?

    Would the cordovan in burgundy be similar to number 8? If I decide to go with the shoes in addition to a belt I would want a matching watch band and possibly a wallet. Thank You
    Asked by: Philip
    We're truly sorry for the delay in responding! The Strand style #1695 in Burgundy Shell Cordovan is Horween’s #8 Shell Cordovan. We recommend pairing it with our Cordovan Avenue belt style #1015569 and Cordovan Wallet #1015371. We currently do not offer watch bands. We hope this information helps!
