    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.

    Strand Cap-Toe Oxford is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 945.
    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 1 out of 5 by from Two different shoes First time purchase of AE. I am a big fan of cordovan and many pairs bought from English makers. I am British and live in the UK. Purchasing shoes was straightforward and certainly shipping was very smooth. The shoes per se are very nice in style , construction etc. However, it is clear that the two shoes sent to me are completely different colours ! One is the dark brown advertised - but the other is a reddish colour - not in patches which is expected from cordovan but uniformly red and quite obvious. I thought for one moment that I had been sent one shoe in chili but the colour reference is the same on both shoes. Remarkable absence of quality control really . Of course the hassle of sending the shoes back is too much to contemplate and I guess I will need to try and get a shoemaker here to try and darken the red shoe - but I would be surprised if that were possible. With taxes I paid well over $1,000 for the shoes - this is the cost of buying shoes from the US by mail. Never again !

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sizing off 10.5 E fits more like a 12 or larger Hi, Full disclosure, I special ordered a pair of Walnut Strands with combination sole from a store in a nearby city here in Canada. Was far cheaper than ordering directly from AE and ship to Canada. I saved around $250 Can not ordering directly from AE. I was excited to receive them. They are gorgeous shoes and the quality of the work was very good. But then I tried them on. They are huge. I used AE's online tool to find the best size and it said 10.5, hey my size, perfect. I thought an insole would help a bit. No, it exaggerated the length but now the heel and midsole area fit exceptionally well. The size on the box reads 10.5 E and the tongue on the shoe reads the same. The vast majority of my shoes for the past quarter century have been 10.5, with the occasional 10 or 11, once there was a 13 (Puma sneaker, go figure). On a Brannock device I'm a 10.5 E (actually between and E and D). I measured a shoe, out sole, toe to heel is just over 12.5 inches and internally just over 12 inches. This is quite larger than my other 10.5 shoes. I'd really like to order more AE shoes but now I really do not know my size in AE shoes. The nearest AE store is in Seattle and that is at least 2 hour drive south of Vancouver, BC. Great shoes but sizing (at least for these Walnut Strands) is way off.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but somewhat concerning i own 4 pairs of strands. just got the brown because my old bourbons were stolen when someone swiped my luggage ! I had to return unfortunately because the stitching on the side was wearing off. disappointed because i waited 3 weeks for the custom sizing. just got the replacement and all is well. i do have concerns on quality control now whereas that was not the case years ago. still make a good product but for 400 bucks, they should be checking these shoes over 3x before sending out.

    Sizing

    A J&M wingtip is slightly large on me in a size 8 Standard. I'm told these run a little big. Do you suggest sizing down to a 7.5 E (my foot is just a tad wider than standard) or sticking with an 8E? In Vans and other sports shoes I typically wear a size 8.5 - 9. Thanks for any help you can provide on these. I realize getting fitted in the store is the best option but there isn't an AE near me.

    I don't expect you'll do anything, but have had something that bugged me since bought a black pair of strands a little under three years ago.

    I have loved the fit and the wear, but. I never cared for fact that their is a gap between the "subsole" and the leathelearned.Your picures make that part of the sole seem very smoothe. The gap has always been there and not gotten any worse. It just bugs me because I would like consider a pair of loafers but think that your product pictures don't match what you get. I bought these on $50.00 off sale from this site. Do you guys sell seconds on sale? I wish now that I would have sent them back forr another, but lesson learned.

    Which belt do you recommend for the Strands in Cigar?

    Asked by: Russell
    The best belt in my opinion is the Manistee Belt in Dark Chili. Dark Chili closely matches the Cigar Strand, and the brogue patterns are similar between the belt and the shoe.

    Can the rubber sole be replaced If or when it wears down?

    It looks like it is stitch on together with the leather sole. How long will it last?
    Asked by: JKM

    I have full orthotics. Can I remove inner soles and replace them with my custom orthotics? Are the shoes deep enough to then be comfortable?

    Asked by: ss
    The insoles of the Strands are not removable. We would recommend taking your orthotics to your nearest store to try them out on a pair of Strands.
