    Care Instructions

    Cordovan leather requires different care than calfskin due to its unique properties. Brush and wipe regularly and apply cream occasionally to protect the leather and maintain its rich color.

    Regular Maintenance:

    Regularly, brush the leather with our Horsehair Shine Brush or wipe with our Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth.

    To Protect and Restore Color, Follow These Steps:

    STEP 1: Wipe your shoe down with a damp cloth and allow to dry.

    STEP 2: Using your Horsehair Dauber, apply a small amount of Cordovan cream in a circular motion.

    STEP 3: While the cream is still slightly wet, take our Horsehair Shine Brush and brush back and forth, heating the cream and leather. This allows the natural oils to move to the surface to bring out the leather's natural shine.

    STEP 4: Next, use the soft side of our Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth to buff the shoe until the surface is no longer tacky. Often, some excess cream will transfer onto the cloth, which is normal.

    STEP 5: Take our Heel Dressing applicator and press against the edge of the heel and sole.

    Classic Fit

    Most people consider a “classic” fit to be a “standard” fit. This fit more closely aligns with the natural shape of your feet.

    Strand Shell Cordovan Cap-Toe Oxford is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 923.
    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the most comfortable pair of shoes I've ever owned. One of the most comfortable pair of shoes I've owned ... very happy with the product. They look and feel great ... true sizing but a word of caution, I normally take a 10.5 medium but in all Allen Edmond shoes (I have several pairs) I take a size 10.5E. This brand runs a bit on the narrow side. Suggest saddle soaping and treating with a good shoe cream upon purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 7 years in, couldn't be happier I purchased these shoes for my wedding 7 years ago and they look better than they did on day one and are even more comfortable. For instance, after a day of work, I took these off and put on shoes to go for a jog and could barely tell a difference in comfort. I love these shoes and couldn't be happier!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Allen Edmonds always perfect! Difficult to find shoes that fit my 12B feet . Been wearing Allen Edmonds shoes for 30 years. Never had a problem with fit . 12B precisely the same fit with AE shoes. Also the quality and beauty of shoes lasts for many years. Just keep them reasonably clean and polish them as needed and you will get many years of use out of them.

    I don't expect you'll do anything, but have had something that bugged me since bought a black pair of strands a little under three years ago.

    I have loved the fit and the wear, but. I never cared for fact that their is a gap between the "subsole" and the leathelearned.Your picures make that part of the sole seem very smoothe. The gap has always been there and not gotten any worse. It just bugs me because I would like consider a pair of loafers but think that your product pictures don't match what you get. I bought these on $50.00 off sale from this site. Do you guys sell seconds on sale? I wish now that I would have sent them back forr another, but lesson learned.

    Which belt do you recommend for the Strands in Cigar?

    Asked by: Russell
    Thank you for reaching out with your inquiry! We don't have a belt that matches the exact color for the Cigar. We're really sorry about that. Depending on your taste, we recommend a belt in Burgundy or Brown. We hope this helps!

    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
    I have the Mcallister Wing Tips with the combination tap sole. It is by far my favorite sole of all my AE’s. It’s extremely durable but more flexible than the leather soles. I believe the break in period was shorter compared to the traditional leather sole, I wore (and still wear) the shoes more often than any other AE’s I own. I got at least 2.5 - 3 years of solid use before I sent them to be re crafted and truthfully, I sent them in way too early. The soles had plenty of tread left. Let me put the 2.5 - 3 years of use into perspective... I am in outside sales. I walk on various surfaces ALL DAY LONG. Hot pavement, asphalt, carpet, tile, in the rain and blazing Alabama heat as well as climate controlled areas. They hold up so well that I will have them put on the Carbon Strands I am getting ready to order.
