    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.

    Strand Cap-toe Oxford with Combination Tap Sole is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 913.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great business and casual shoe This is my second pair of EA shoes I bought. Like the Fifth Avenue I bought them in NY, but these in Walnut. As the Fifth Avenues, they are perfect to wear, look stunning and are extremely comfortable. I most of the time wear them with blue Jeans and they are my go to shoes when I am not 100% sure if I should go formal or casual.

    Can the rubber sole be replaced If or when it wears down?

    It looks like it is stitch on together with the leather sole. How long will it last?
    Asked by: JKM

    I have full orthotics. Can I remove inner soles and replace them with my custom orthotics? Are the shoes deep enough to then be comfortable?

    Asked by: ss
    The insoles of the Strands are not removable. We would recommend taking your orthotics to your nearest store to try them out on a pair of Strands.

    How is the durability of the combination tap sole relative to leather? Longer wearing, I assume?

    Asked by: cab
    Thank you for your inquiry! A combination sole gives you the look of leather with the benefits of a rubber sole. Also, the flexible forepart and rubber heel provides traction for any type of weather. The Combination tap can last long depending on the weather conditions and climate. We hope this helps!

    How do you make cigar?

    It looks like it has a coffee base but then is burnished with black to make it darker, especially at the toe and heel. Is that right or is it an entirely new color?
    Asked by: helter-skelter
    You'll find the upper is a Cigar leather with brown burnish and the lining leather is coffee. Hope this information helps! ~Anne

    Do they fit normal to size?

    Asked by: Ray
    All Allen Edmonds shoes are designed based on the Brannock Device's sizing standards and therefore are true to those standards. Lasts are comparable in length from the heel to the ball of the foot. We believe the right fit is vitally important. If you are a first-time Allen Edmonds customer, we recommend a professional fitting by an Allen Edmonds associate at your nearest retail location or an authorized Allen Edmonds dealer.
