    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 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sizing inconsistency I love this color. Carbon is rich with purple, grey, and brown undertones that can be seen in different lighting. I find it will work well with my wardrobe. I am a solid size 10.5 D on the 65 last and own several Strands that fit me like a glove. I tried on and had to return four pairs due to inconsistent sizing. Four out of five were very voluminous at the vamp (height) and loose fitting across the toebox. The laces had to be tied to the point where no v-gap was present. I can see that once the cork conforms to my feet, I would certainly be swimming in these shoes. Sure, I could have added an insert or sized down to avoid several returns but this sizing inconsistency concerns me and will make it challenging when ordering again using my brannock size.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WHAT AN AWESOME SHOE AND COLOR This is my 10th pair of Allen Edmonds. I have two Bartlett, Liverpool Chelsea boot, Fifth Avenue, Penny loafer, Higgins Mill, Sullivan Street boot, Bond Street etc. So I feel qualified to review these Strands in Carbon. Of course I was skeptical of the carbon color but I have to say it really is a beautiful shade of almost dark brown with some burgundy undertones. It pairs very well with many different slacks and if you want something just different but still super versatile and classy these fit the bill. It’s important to note, as you polish these you can take them in a different direction. Honestly, give them a try if you already have the basic colors covered or you what something just a shade different then everyone else.

    What color Speed Polish or Premium Polish is appropriate for this "2301 Carbon" color shoe?

    What color Speed Polish or Premium Polish is appropriate for this "2301 Carbon" color shoe?
    Asked by: Ivane
    We recommend our Neutral shoe polish for this style, as this is what is used at our factory during finishing. If you are unable to cover any deep scuffs, you can spot treat them with a small amount of a dark shoe polish such as black or dark brown to minimize their appearance. We do recommend trying it on an inconspicuous area of the shoes first to ensure you like the results. We hope you will find this information helpful! If you have other questions, please let us know.

    Is the carbon color a dark grey? It’s hard to tell online what the color base is I’ve heard some say it has brown shades to it.

    Asked by: ldelaplane
    I was scared that it would have a brownish tint. I was very happy when mine arrived, and they were a dark grey.
