    Nomad Buck Suede Derby is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product This is a fabulous shoe made with precision and care. The lines are beautiful and the color is perfect for Spring and Summer with white of off white linen pants. I'm so happy with my purchase and will purchase them again when I need a new pair. Thanks for making such a classic and quality shoe!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality This shoe is what you'd expect from Edmonds. It's a well made quality shoe. It runs slightly narrow which for me personally was perfect. They've made excellent shoes for decades.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Frustrating This shoe represents my first AE purchase ever and I really want to love it; however, I have become frustrated with the poor quality of the replacement shoes I have received. I just placed my 3rd replacement order and will not likely purchase anything from AE again if it doesn't work out. Conversely, I will dramatically increase my rating if it does. TL;DR at end. 1st order- Ordered standard dress shoe size for myself; got them for a song during the anniversary sale (was very happy so far). Item arrived clean and never used; was gorgeous but a little too narrow. Called customer service and they suggested order a 1/2 size larger. 2nd order (half size larger)- Item fit but had large patch of discoloration on toe of one shoe; looked like shoe dying/tanning was incomplete in one large section. Tried brushing in every direction but could not get off-color portion to match the rest of the shoe. Contacted customer service again and they agreed to ship a 3rd pair overnight free of charge (shipping was free; had to purchase shoes). 3rd order- 1 shoe had a small, deep black spot on it; and, both shoes were marked up heavily and had clearly been brushed far too aggressively. Long suede hairs covered both shoes and made them look like a pair of 10 year old beaters. Previous purchaser must have tried to break them in with the brush and/or remove the abovementioned spot before returning them. It is noteworthy to mention that the suede on first two pairs were not in this condition (i.e. smooth, no long hairs). TL;DR I have ordered this pair of shoes 4 times and called customer service twice because really want to own a pair of navy Nomad Suede Derbies. I had high hopes for this brand and became a collector in anticipation of loving the Nomads and making future purchases. I honestly do not know if I will order from AE again if this last pair arrives in anything less then pristine condition On a positive note- customer service has been wonderful.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs additional widths offered Great shoe that I'd love to keep, but it's just too narrow to be wearable for me, so I need to return it. Minus one star because widths offered strangely jump from D to EEE. If it's ever offered in E in the future, I'll defintely buy again.

    I have many Allen edmunds shoes. 11 1/2 C. Would like to try this dark blue suede derby shoes. Have always found a D too wide. Do the B have give?

    Asked by: Jmcianciolo
    Hi Joseph. 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. Typically, we recommend trying the same size you usually wear and judging the fit based on how comfortable you feel in the shoes. If possible, we’d love to have you visit an Allen Edmonds retail store or one of our retail partners for a professional fitting. Our associates are trained to help you find the right fit for the various lasts and styles we offer. Also, 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 (we advise trying the shoes on a carpeted surface to keep them in returnable condition).

    Insole and resoling

    I think this has a removable insole to accommodate custom orthotics. True? Also, following up on a prior question. Can the soles be resoled with rubber down the road? Love the nomad line, hope you bring out a white buck.
    Asked by: Dnp
    I bought a pair of white bucks (Nomads) last year (2018) from AE. They fit and perform as I expected. I’ve purchased over ten pairs of AE and have been very pleased with each. Several have been recrafted once or twice. Thanks.

    Do these come in an E width? It appears that the width available is only D or EEE. why?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    The Nomad is offered in universal widths, B (narrow) D (Medium) and EEE (wide). 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 as they will be able to assist you in finding the best size and width combination for you in this style. Feel free to contact us again if you have additional questions!
