    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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Strandmok have only worn them a couple times yet but they are very comfortable and I am loving the Dainite Soles

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shoe, just do not order online due to odd sizing (other models are fine) I'm either a 10.5 or an 11 in the most narrow size for every shoe I own (a Chuck Taylor hightop is kind of my precise foot size,) but a 10.5 narrow was hilariously ill fitting. I have narrow but otherwise pretty average feet. Thankfully Allen Edmonds lets you exchange them in person, otherwise I would have been boned. I met Danny, an absolute wizard, who tried a bunch of different sizes, the closest of which was a size 9 in the second narrowest. Even then, the fairly straight heel meant that it slipped a bit. I was just about to give up and get a different shoe (other models all seemed to fit fine and in normal sizes) So he tried a custom bar lace and poof, perfect fit. There is no way I could have gotten these shoes to fit without him. Now I love them. They require a bit of break in, but I can wear them all day after a couple days of use. They look great with everything, jeans, shorts, Chinos and slacks. The leather is soft and supple, and all the color in the soles and the laces really makes them pop, but not unprofessional. So, I would highly recommend these shoes, but only buy them in the store, where you can get someone to really make sure they fit. Because whoever designed the sizing chart for them must have been drunk.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shoes, a casual version of the Strand I've owned these black Strandmoks for a few weeks now and they feel great! very comfortable and I would say they fit slightly looser than the standard Strands because they are unlined. The Chromexcel leather is nice and flexible and I love how it changes over time. I was worried the black color might not work with many outfits but these go great with jeans and most chinos. I also wear them with black or navy shorts now that it's summertime and I think they look great! I also thought the brogue style with black might be a little weird but it works with the blue soles and laces. They make the shoe more casual and fun. Most of my Allen Edmonds shoes are dressier calfskin leather so it's nice to have a pair that just gets better the more I wear them! Scuffs and creases don't bother me with these.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shoe, some corner cutting though... The leather upper on this shoe is incredible, looks and feels great. Right out of the box, it was surprisingly comfortable with no break in required. Seriously, this is easily one of the most comfortable lace up shoes I’ve ever worn. The blue soles and laces make this shoe unique, easily worn both dressed up or more casual. That said, it was a bit disappointing to see that the inside is not more fully leather lined - just the heel and a narrow strip around the ankle. I know it’s not visible to anybody else when they’re being worn, but that narrow liner strip around the ankle and the single extra line of stitching that holds it in place just looks incredibly cheap when considering that it features on an otherwise incredibly constructed, $350 pair of shoes. Stop cutting corners, A-E...not a deal breaker, but I would have gladly paid a few extra dollars to have this shoe built just a little bit better.

    Is the sole blue or purple? I understand the re-crafting page refers to it as blue.

    Can I get new soles/heels for these?

    StrandmokCap-Toe Oxford with Dainite Rubber Sole - Recommended Care Products

    I purchased brown Strandmok Cap-Toe Oxford with Dainite Rubber Sole shoes which I love and want to purchase the shoe care products for them. Could you please recommend which products by COLOR I need to purchase? Cream Polish - Brown? Speed Polish - Brown? Heel Dressing - ???? I just don't want to order the wrong colors, especially the Heel Dressing Thank you Ed Pack
    Asked by: Ed
    Thank you for your question! The Brown Strandmok #4027 was designed with a unique 'brush-off' finish that reveals the gold tone color underneath with normal wear. This type of finish will "brush off" and it is 100% intentional. Shoe polish will not cover these marks and if used it will not match the finish. The finish will permanently be removed in the areas for a worn, casual look. The Leather Lotion is recommended to keep the leather moisturized, soft and supple. If you would liek to add some shine, you may use Neutral Carnauba Wax Polish. To clean the edge of the sole and the heel, you may use a lightly damp cloth. To cover scuff marks on the welt edge or leather portion of the heel, you may use Heel Dressing in Neutral. Feel free to contact us again if you have additional questions!

    So I know this may be a stupid question, but being an unlined shoe does it make it less of a winter shoe?
    Asked by: LSUMaze
    No, but I would wear an over shoe to protect from the elements and stay dry.
