    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.

    Classic Fit

    Carlyle Plain-Toe Oxford is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 253.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful shoe! I have many pairs of Allen Edmonds shoes in various colors and I have no complaints about any of them. They really are my favourite shoe maker. All are well crafted and look stunning!!! I was looking for a black plain toe oxford and was able to buy these on sale at a local retailer. I wear 10.5D and they fit like a glove and are very sleek. They look fantastic when worn dressed down and classy when worn with a suit. I definitely recommend these shoes. The only thing some may not like is the chiselled toe vs a round.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 35 years On! I bought these shoes in the fall of 1984 as a college freshman needing a pair of "forever" black dress shoes. I've had them re-soled a couple of times; kept them in shoe trees and have cared for them consistently. They've lasted. And lasted. As the saying goes: Buy once, cry once.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe and available in the right size. As I'm getting older I've had to look for wider widths. Humbling. These are a beautiful, well-made shoe in a 3E. Good fit, well made, and good looking. I'm pleased and my feet are happy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking. Great value. I now have 2 pair of these purchased about 2 years apart. I tried but cannot even come close to fitting into the standard 5 last in any size combination. It's far too narrow up front and wide at the heel for me. This one, however, works really well for my foot. The quality is excellent, the look is classic, and I'm really pleased with their durability. They're also easy to keep looking good.

    Size 9 in Bates

    Trying to get this right while overseas. I wear a size 9 E wide in Bates dress shoes and am looking to purchase a pair of Carlyle Plain-toe Oxford. What size do you recommend? Thank you

    What size to get if a 12.5 D Park Avenue?

    I have been fairly successful getting folks to comment on this half size issue at the 12.5 space. Except for a couple of casual shoes that I suspect are not under great consistency restraints.
    Asked by: Dapper Dave
    Hi Dapper Dave! It's vitally important to visit an Allen Edmonds store or retail partner for a professional fitting to increase your chances of finding a proper fit, as they'll be able to assist you in finding the best fit for this style. If that's not possible, we suggest trying both a 12 and 13 to see which one feels more comfortable. Keep in mind we offer an easy returns policy.

    What size to get for Carlyle if 10.5D in Park Avenue

    I wear 10.5D in Park Avenue and it is a quarter inch long for me and just right on width. For Carlyle, what shoe size should I get? 10.5D, 10.5E or 11D? Am not near an Allen Edmonds store so can't get my foot sized.
    Asked by: Tom
    Each style can fit differently based on the contours of your feet, so it’s difficult to recommend a size via email and guarantee a proper fit. If you are unable to visit a store, typically, we suggest trying the same size you usually wear and judging the fit based on how comfortable you feel in the shoes. Keep in mind that products purchased on AllenEdmonds.com may be returned within 90 days, as long as the item is unworn and accompanied by the packing slip, and not customized.

    Is this shoe black tie appropriate?

    I rarely wear black shoes and am looking for a pair to pull double duty for black tie and very conservative occasions such as funerals. I have a pair of Carlyles in brown that I love, but I'm not sure if they are appropriate for wearing with a tuxedo. I'm also looking at the MacLennan plain toe whole cuts, Park Avenue's, Vernon, and Cornwallis.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Although they are not patent leather, which is the traditional (though perhaps outdated) pairing for evening wear, I think the clean look and calfskin leather of the Carlyle set a sophisticated and understated tone fully appropriate for evening wear. I bought these to replace a pair of patent leather shoes I used to wear with my tuxedo.

    I noticed in the new style guide that there no longer any other shoes offered in this last.. Is there anything similar to this last available?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    The Carlye is on the 108 last, same as the Delray, the Player's 2.0, and the Hale. The closest lasts would be the 222 (Norwich), or perhaps the 65.
