    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.

    Relaxed Fit

    The relaxed fit has added space in the toe box. This extra room allows for thicker socks and foot expansion that occurs at the end of the day or during a long flight.

    Bartlett Cap-Toe Oxford is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 58.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Control Was excited to buy my first pair of Allen Edmunds. Received the shoes in the mail and notice the stitching was not aligned and brogue not shaped correctly on some parts of the shoes. Should of trusted the other reviews that had similar quality issues. Unfortunately could not return it and get a new pair in time for the event.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are a great pair of dress shoes. You can tell the attention to detail that was given in crafting these shoes. My office spans six blocks and occasionally I have to walk from one end to the other for meetings. All of my Allen Edmonds are always comfortable, but my pair of Bartlett’s set the benchmark for how I measure a shoe. They have it all; comfort, style, and quality craftsmanship. I will definitely be an Allen Edmonds customer for life!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If I could marry a shoe... ...I would marry the Bartlett in walnut. Flexible, soft, rich and stylish, in short, the perfect mate for my feet. Something about this last (201) just fits my foot perfectly. And the premium calfskin in this line was supple and smooth right out of the box. I find myself wearing these with everything. The only thing they don’t go with is my pajamas. oh, and very casual shorts. I custom ordered with red Danite soles and was delighted with the combination. This is my favorite shoe of all time. I am considering ordering more colors and ditching everything else in my closet.

    How does the 65 last compare to the 201 last ?

    My husband only wears Allen Edmonds. He has at least ten pairs and they all seem to be the 65 last.
    Asked by: Dee
    The 65 last is our most popular, classic fitting last. The longest in length of all of our lasts; best for a long, narrow look; and often the best fit for those with high arches. The 201 last has a higher cone, providing more room for a higher instep and contemporary shelf appeal. The toe down has fuller forefoot width for more comfort and slight chisel to the toe profile, providing a sleek looking aesthetic which complements our iconic 65 last. Feel free to contact us again if you have additional questions!

    How do these shoes hold up against the rain? I know these are not waterproof.

    Which shoes from the independence collection hold up pretty good against rain and the elements?
    Asked by: Ramiro
    The Independence Collection is not considered to be waterproof. We suggest using overshoes to protect fine leather footwear from rain or snow, or choosing appropriate footwear when expecting inclement weather conditions. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    Differences between Bartlett and Strand?

    Please help me understand the differences between the Bartlett and the Strand. I’m specifically interested in any variation in color between the brown versions of each shoe. Also, is the Bartlett a noticeably longer and more narrow shoe? Thank you.
    Asked by: SDA4
    The Strand is constructed on the 65 Last, and the Bartlett on the 201 Last so the overall fit may feel slightly different. The length is comparable from the heel to the widest part of the shoe. The Bartlett is part of the Independence collection which is a premium collection made with softer leathers and lambskin lining, it also features a two-tone outsole and dove-tail heel. The brown versions are both dark brown. All About Lasts: https://www.allenedmonds.com/discover/shoes-101/lasts.html Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    Will the Bartlett age more gracefully with its higher quality calfskin compared to the Strand?

    I prefer the brown tone of the Strand, which is more espresso, than the Bartlett, which is more dark chocolate. However, I know that the leather in the Bartlett is much higher quality. So if the Bartlett will look much better in 2 or 3 years, that will impact my buying decision.
    Asked by: Tim88
    Styles may age differently even if using the same type of leather and it is dependent on many different factors, including but not limited to amount of wear, light exposure, level of care and types of care products used, climate and weather, storage conditions, moisture, the area of the hide where each component was cut, tanning batches, etc. Also, leather may lighten or darken overtime due to the nature of the material. We cannot predict how any style will age for each individual as each pair will be unique and acquire its own character overtime. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    Are the soles of the independence collection still "another iron" thicker than soles of AE's main collection (i.e. regular calfskin strands)

    The 2011 introduction youtube video for the Independence collection mentions a number of nice details such as: thicker soles, wheeling, softest leather. Are these same upgrades still in place or have they changed a bit over the years? Thank you for being such a wonderful team & company ---proud to wear your excellent American made products.
    Asked by: AEAA350
    Thank you for your inquiry. To complement our newest sleeker styles, we've updated the Independence Collection to have a single oak two-tone sole with the wheeling details for a more refined look. The rest is still the same, we still use our premium calfskin and ultra soft lambskin linings. They styles have changed slightly but retain the same quality materials and craftsmanship. We sincerely appreciate your feedback, loyalty, and support. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    The 201 last fits me better than the 65. Does AE plan to make this shoe in oxblood? If not, can I order a pair?

    Asked by: Grant
    There are currently no plans to expand the color offering of the Bartlett style. We do not offer custom leather special orders at this time. We suggest taking a look at the Hopkinson or the Jefferson 2.0. These styles are both constructed on the 201 last and they are offered in Merlot which is similar to Oxblood. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    Please help me with color matching the Burnished Brown Bartlett.

    1. What color polish should I use to preserve/attend the handsome finish of this shoe? 2. Which belts do you offer that will most easily match this shoe? Thank you in advance for your assistance! I own: Hopkinson, Merlot Jefferson 2.0, Merlot Bartlett, Burnished Brown Dalton, Mahogany(hand finished)
    Asked by: JK
    We recommend using the Dark Brown Premium Shoe Polish when polishing this style. The Manistee belt or the Dupont belt in Brown will coordinate with this style nicely. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    I have mccalistet in 9.5c what su in Bartlett?

    Asked by: Joe
    Allen Edmonds shoes are constructed on a wide variety of lasts (foot molds) and each will feature unique fit characteristics. It is difficult to recommend a size through this channel and guarantee a proper fit because each last will fit differently based on the contours of your feet. The McAllister is constructed on the 65 last which is the longest in length of all of our lasts; best for a long, narrow foot. The Bartlett is constructed on the 201 Last which has a higher cone, providing more room for a higher instep and a fuller forefoot width for more comfort. It is vitally important to visit an Allen Edmonds retail store or retail partner for a professional fitting to increase your chances of being fit correctly for each last and style. However, keep in mind that products purchased on allenedmonds.com may be returned at any time, as long as the item is unused and accompanied by the packing slip. Trying the shoes on a carpeted surface will help prevent scuffing on the sole and keep the shoes in returnable condition.
