    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.

    Hopkinson Cap-toe Oxford is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 85.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Chinese-made shoes have better consistency and quality than any AE shoes I've bought Whether it's the Bartlett or Hopkinson, there are always major flaws that never should have been accepted as first-quality shoes. Wish I could upload photos, but the Bartlett's had really crooked stitching on the back heel with the first pair. Returned them and they sent another pair that had stitching track marks along every stitch due to too much presser foot pressure. These never came out, I decided to just keep them because I was tired of dealing with returns. Paid full price for them. Just bought the Hopkinson's during the anniversary sale for $350 and the eyelets on one shoe are misaligned, making the laces extremely crooked. These are very expensive shoes and these sort of defects are unacceptable. Sad to say that "Made in America" is worse quality than Chinese-made shoes these days. I just ordered a second pair, hoping they won't send more junk my way. Will be giving up on AE and going with Chinese shoes if I don't get what I'm paying for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great customer service, awesome shoe This is my first dress shoe outside of box retailers and I couldn't be happier. They helped me exchange the shoe several times to ensure a good fit since I'm unacquainted with sizes. I couldn't recommend Allen Edmonds enough!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Control I have ordered these shoes twice online and had to return them both due to obvious defects. I'm not sure why these shoes are passing quality control. This is a shame because I have two other pairs of shoes in this collection, the Jefferson 2.0 and the Bartlett, and I love them both. If I could only get a defect-free pair of the Hopkinson shoes. . .

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from The pair of shoes received was not in new condition. Returned the pair of shoes two weeks ago, still awaiting refund. The shoes I received appeared to be previously worn, with visible scuffs on the left shoe and scuffs on both soles. In the past I have been pleased with Allen Edmonds shoes, having owned three other pairs. Was disappointed in this pair, and hope to receive my refund very soon.

    Treatment

    How should I treat these shoes before wearing them? Waterproofer? Leather lotion? Anything in particular? Also, what type of leather are these made from? Thank you.
    Asked by: Kris
    Allen Edmonds shoes are ready to wear out of the box, however some customer like to shine them before wearing them the first time. This is not entirely necessary as it really is just personal preference. If you wish to care for the shoes before wearing them, you can apply Leather Lotion and follow with Speed Polish to add shine. The Hopkinson is made using calfskin and it features lambskin lining. Feel free to contact us again if you have additional questions!

    Fit wise,a re the Hopkinson shoes the same as the park avenues just wider?

    I have a pair of park avenues, and the 11 EEE fits ok, but are just a little narrow. I recently tried the Hopkinson, because it seemed they were wider fitting. The width was better, but it seemed there was less room in between the bottom and top of the inside of the shoe. This caused my toes to be forced up into the top of the shoe. Part of the problem is that I have to wear orthotic inserts which obviously takes up room. I did not have this problem with the park avenues. Do you think I will have the same problem if I try another pair of the Hopkinson? If this effects anything the pair I had were also a little too long, but my main question is about the fit of the front of the shoe.
    Asked by: Gregory
    The Hopkinson and the Park Avenue are constructed on different lasts, the 201 and 65 respectively, and therefore the fit varies. At Allen Edmonds, we believe the right fit is vitally important. We recommend a professional fitting by an Allen Edmonds associate at your nearest retail location or an authorized Allen Edmonds dealer.

    How should I treat this shoe before I begin wearing it (i.e., waterproofing, etc.)?

    Asked by: Kris
    Condition, polish and if desired, wax the heel and toe areas. You have no idea how long any shoe has been sitting in a box and they should be conditioned and cream polished to restore and nourish the leather. These, like most shoes, do not come pre-polished/shined.

    does this hopkinson style have some revision recently?

    I found my independence collection shoes bought 5 years ago have a metal clip on the under side but the Jefferson 2.0 and this Hopkinson both do not have that metal clip. I recently purchased a pair of this Hopkinson and a pair of Jefferson 2.0 and they are consistent with the picture here (i.e. no metal clip on the under side). Since Jefferson 2.0 is called 2.0 so I suppose it has some revision recently. I'm wondering whether this Hopkinson also has some revision recently (in the past 2 to 3 years) ? thank you
    Asked by: charlesNYC
    Thank you for your question. The sole of the Independence Collection shoes, was changed to not include the metal plate on the bottom any longer.

    If you wear a size C width, which size is correct with this shoe? I wear a 10 1/2 C.

    Asked by: Anonymous
    I have noticed that you can generally go one width size smaller on the Independence Collection. Trying them on is the best way to answer this though!
