    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.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from not very happt the shoes are good but too expensive for what they are

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice looking shoe; poor boat shoe. Bought many pairs of AE shoes over the years, but these don't meet the brand standard. Non- slip sole is good, but minimal exposure to water stiffens the leather and looks aged and shabby. Sizes run small and do not correspond with AE standard sizes. Doesn't meet the competition in price, quality, or value.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Insoles come out This review relates to both Maritime and Force 10 boat shoes. I am a long time customer with many pairs of AE in my closet. I had been very happy with my earlier pairs of Maritimes, but the last one I bought about 10 months ago - the insoles stick to my feet and come out when I take off my shoes. A few weeks back I bought a pair of Force 10 boat shoes - same thing. What gives?

    Will this fit the same as an eastport

    Asked by: Anonymous
    The Force 10 is made on the 555 last. It features a shorter forepart and round toe with a tighter instep providing a snug fit. The Eastport is made on the 2592 last. It features a rounded, fuller toe handsewn last. 1/8 inch longer than the 114 last to accommodate a fuller, foam sock liner and heel-to-toe padding.

    Do these shoes have arch support? The old shoe you discontinued did, but since then I haven't seen any.

    Asked by: David
    The Force 10 is made on the 555 last. This last features a shorter forepart and round toe with a tighter instep providing a snug fit. If you would like more information on if the arch will be a good fit, we would recommend going to your nearest store to try on a pair.

    We would recommend the Glass Avenue Belt in the color coffee. We believe that would be a great match for this item.
