    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.

    Park Avenue with Combination Tap Sole is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 1157.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top notch American craftsmanship I’ve been wearing AE shoes for years, and finally sprung for the Park Ave when they were $60 off for Father’s Day. Additionally I had an AMEX Plarinum offer to get $90 back on an AE purchase of $300 or more, so keep an eye out for these deals. $250 is much easier to swallow than $400. I absolutely love these shoes. They’re so timeless and elegant. The craftsmanship is impeccable. These shoes are an investment in your professional wardrobe. I bought mine in the Pentagon Square store in Arlington, VA. I had stopped in previously, with a 5th Ave purchase on my mind (no deals at the time). The salesman was very attentive, but I wasn’t satisfied with the fit of the shoes he presented me, and I left. The second time, I was very fortunate that the manager, Derrick Aaron was present. His knowledge of the products and the nuances of their fit blew my mind. When you’re spending three to five bills on a pair of shoes, you deserve a professional like Derrick to guide your decision. He expertly measured my feet, assessed my instep, and fitted me with the perfect size and width (slightly smaller than normal). It was a great experience. I really hope Derrick sticks around for a few years, because I don’t want to buy shoes from anyone else.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This company has amazing shoes. I have gotten 3 pairs of shoes from Allen Edmonds and I will buy more! The shoes fell as they are an extension of my feet. They use the best leather & the customer service is first class. I have recommended Allen Edmonds to all of coworkers and family.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money Good fit. Comfortable right out of the box, no need to break in. Paying for quality is worth it every time

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good shoe, comfortable, but it does not have as glossy of a finish as I had hoped for. Other than the lack of glossy finish, it is a good pair of shoes. Comfortable and it fits better than the ones that I have been buying in the stores.

    Do the Cordovan Park Avenue’s run small, big or true to size? All of my dress shoes are 41 (ECCO and Timberlands). AE fitted me today at 40

    I know my foot is wide but was told by an AE rep today that I was EEE. I purchased two Cordovan Park Avenues today and I am hoping the representative measured my foot correctly.
    Asked by: Freddy
    Thank you for your inquiry! The Cordovan Park Ave does fit true to size.

    what is the difference in the park avenue cap toe and the park avenue cordovan cap toe?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    The Park Avenue shell cordovan version also uses a more expensive and denser leather sole made by a firm in Germany. My experience with this sole is that it is significantly more durable than a conventional leather sole, and will not require replacement as often.

    Cordovan Water Resistance

    I have read that cordovan leather is a more durable leather with a higher propensity to repel water and handle more harsh winter weather conditions. Is this true and can I expect to be able to wear these through the (Ohio) winter without causing long-term permanent damage to the leather. I maintain a fairly regular shoe care routine with polishing and waxing, however, am not obsessive.
    Asked by: Steve
    While Shell Cordovan is more durable that calfskin, it can still absorb water and create water stains.We suggest avoiding rain or snow if possible as water and salt can cause damage. If you get caught in the rain or snow, we recommend wiping down the leather as soon as possible and letting them dry away from heat, then follow your typical care routine. To protect your investments, we suggest using overshoes which are waterproof. Feel free to contact us again if you have additional questions!
