    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 press against the edge of the heels and soles.

    STEP 5: Apply our Leather Lotion as needed for added protection and polish 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 896.
    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 Walnut Strand Cap-Toe Oxford I purchased the Strand in walnut and absolutely love the color. They fitted me perfectly for my size 11 feet. Very comfortable. No sign of defects or damaged.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strand Shell Cordovan Review I love this shoe! The shell cordovan (Brown) is great shade and fits TTS!
    Date published: 2019-01-31
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent craftsmanship, hard to break in Quality and craftsmanship are truly excellent, but unfortunate the fit and comfort leave some to be desired. The right shoe in particular feels tight in the toes despite being measured to be the correct size. One other AE shoe had the same issue but it eventually broke in after a few months.

    Do they fit normal to size?

    Asked by: Ray
    All Allen Edmonds shoes are designed based on the Brannock Device's sizing standards and therefore are true to those standards. Lasts are comparable in length from the heel to the ball of the foot. We believe the right fit is vitally important. If you are a first-time Allen Edmonds customer, we recommend a professional fitting by an Allen Edmonds associate at your nearest retail location or an authorized Allen Edmonds dealer.

    Can you tell us a bit more about coffee, please?

    Is it replacing burnished brown? Or is it more similar to chili or bourbon? In other words, how dark is it, and does it have any hues in a color other than brown, such as red (like chili), green (like bourbon), or orange (like walnut)? It is, as ever, somewhat hard to tell from the online photos against the white background.
    Asked by: srlclark
    HI, I just got a pair of the coffee, and its brown like coffee. I'm seriously considering exchanging mine for chili... .

    Can you wear oxblood strands with jeans?

    Can you wear jeans with oxblood strands?
    Asked by: Eric
    Yes, you can wear jeans with Oxblood Strands. However, this is a matter of preference as well as fashion rules. The Oxblood will work best with dark denim, or even black jeans. Never baggy because although jeans are a casual look, the idea is to look as dress casual as possible, and the Strand IS, after all, an Oxford, which tends toward being more dressed a look. Keep the length to either fitted or a slight roll to accommodate the shoe. Never too long or with dragging or shredded cuffs.

    Handcrafted in USA

    Does the new (Fall 2018) branding include the “handcrafted in USA” marking?
    Asked by: Anonymous

    Is the shank made of steel? If not, of what?

    Asked by: Dan
    No shank used or needed as this shoe uses 360 degrees welting.

    Not offered in walnut or tan??

    These shoes, like all AE shoes, should be offered in a lighter color like walnut or tan. Does AE anticipate doing that for this show and it’s cordovan line??
    Asked by: JNC
    Probably not. It is my understanding that it is very hard to get shell cordovan in these lighter colors. You need a virtually perfect shell and the tanning process needs to be perfect, otherwise imperfections will show when you attempt to tan shell cordovan in a lighter color.
