    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.

    LAX Derby Shoe is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 168.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Waste of Money I bought 2 pairs of the LAX Derby shoes (one chili, one black), and will likely throw them away. The chili ones run so narrow that they squeeze my toes/feet and hurt enough that I have to take them off by lunch. The black ones squeak loudly when I walk, to the point that people have commented on it; it's almost like they are made out of cheap plastic instead of leather. I've never had these issues with any other AE shoes. Waste of money.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Edge dressing for rubber? Nothing about this in the care instructions. Need some recommendation. Water?

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Product has good features but the shoe fit is unpredictable. This is my second pair of lax derby's. The first fit fine. These are quite snug and the shoe size is the same. I think ultimately they will be ok, but I'm having to stretch them for the sake of a comfortable fit.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the usual AE quality.... I purchased two pair of these, one in each color. I wear the black pair frequently at work. While they are comfortable, the leather upper is soft. As a result they damage easily and require frequent attention to fix the finish. They have also creased across the top with frequent wear. The sole is a rubber product that is also closer to a hard foam. It is not as durable compared to other types and has worn quickly. Metal stairs are hard on them. So while comfortable, they have ended up not being the best looking unfortunately even with care. Sadly for the price I need to replace them simply for appearances at work.

    Recraft with leather sole

    Can this shoe be recrafted with a leather sole?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Even if you could you would change the dynamics of the whole shoe and loose much of your cushion you purchased them for in the first place I presume.

    Can the heel alone be replaced, or does the entire sole need to be replaced? How much does the heel/sole replacement cost? (Same as leather soles?)

    Asked by: Anonymous
    The Road Warriors sole is a single unit and so the complete sole (including the heel) would be replaced through the Standard Package or Prestige Package Recrafting service. For current prices on Recrafting services please visit our Recrafting page. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    Do these shoes have a "skid-resistant" bottom?

    Asked by: Fri1313
    While rubber soles tend to provide more traction than traditional leather solse, our shoes are not considered to be slip resistant. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
