    AVOID buying Allen Edmonds seconds shoes or AE shoes from Nordstrom’s Rack.

    My story: I purchased these shoes, Hinsdale model, at Nordstrom Rack. I own several pair of AE shoes and like my other AEs these fit great and are very comfortable. After a few months, the shoes started to bow out on the sides where you put your foot in. I contacted customer service and they...

    I could use some help with a pair of shoes I recently bought. Something was dropped on one of my AE oxfords recently, right on the toe, and now there is a dent in the toe that I can't remove. I've tried pushing up the dent by putting newspaper on my shoe tree, and generally making it as tight...

    Allen Edmonds Shoe Sizing Question

    Hey so I am looking into slowly upgrading my shoe collection on a budget. I've decided to go the used Allen Edmonds route and recraft if it's necessary, resulting in good-like new shoes for 50% off or more. I'd likely be going for Park Avenues, McAllisters, Lombards, MacNeils, 5th Avenues, and...

    Allen Edmond shoe squeeks between sock and leather.

    I finally bought my first Allen Edmonds shoes a few months ago. I bought two pair. Both are very comfortable, however they squeak when I walk in them. I'm positive that it's my foot rubbing the inside of the leather. It squeaks from my toes to my heal. This is very very irritating. I have went...

    New shoes, how tight is too tight?

    Jeez, sorry, this seems like such a childish question, but it's really bugging me. So as I mentioned in another thread, I purchased a pair of Allen Edmonds Lexingtons, size 8.5D. They are tight. I wore them yesterday afternoon (about 3 hours) and today (about 9-10 hours) and my feet are...

    Should I use saddle soap or no?

    I finally received all of my supplies from AE and went and bought some saddle soap from a local shoe repair shop here in LA. I bought the saddle soap b/c my shoe shine guy would always use this plus I read some of you use it as well. But when I did a recent search (a few minutes ago) some were...

    Allen Edmonds - best alternative?

    Hi all, Styleforum influenced me to go try on some Allen Edmonds shoes because they are known to be very well made, stylish, and reasonably priced when on sale. Well, I tried. Many sizes (9D, 9.5D, 9E). Many lasts. They just don't fit me. So, now I am at a loss for a good alternative...

    Allen-Edmonds - Quality?

    Your experiences with Allen Edmonds men's footwear, please. How well do they wear? Has the leather scuffed too quickly? How about original soles - how long have they lasted? There's a pair of "the Alton" at Nordstrom's Rack - black kiltie slip-ons with the leather bow; the soles have black...

    Do Allen Edmonds break in?

    I just picked up a pair of retail store ordered Allen Edmonds Delray (basic leather soled split toe bluchers). I choose to purchase at a retailer because I prefer to try on shoes. My feet measure to be a 10.5D, but I have typically preferred a 10.5E. Before placing the order, I tried on a pair...

    Need help with allen edmonds sizing!

    I'm interested in buying a pair of AE's off ebay but I'm concerned as to what the 'girth' letters really indicate? What is a correct measure of these letters? Anyone have a chart or something? I am 5'10, 170 pounds and wear an 8 1/2. How can I narrow down the other measurement?
