Welcome to the 2021 Allen Edmonds Appreciation Thread!

StyleForum’s Allen Edmonds Appreciation Thread is one of the largest, most popular online communities for fans of fine American-made Allen Edmonds shoes.

We’re here to share pictures, gloat over new purchases, give questionably helpful advice, and ask/answer any questions about the brand and its products. If you need advice for sizing, we may be able to help.

Thread rules are simple (and three out of four of these rules also apply to shoe care):
  • keep it clean,
  • keep it polished,
  • keep it mostly on the shoes,
  • do not, under any circumstances, share your recipe for guacamole.
This thread is pretty open when it comes to off-topic discussion. Please don’t derail the thread. When in doubt, place off-topic pictures and pictures of non-AE shoes in spoiler tags with a descriptive title.

Don’t be afraid to join in with a comment or share a picture. (If you identify yourself as new to the thread, you may see a “stay off my lawn” picture as a response. Realize that it’s just our way of welcoming you to the group.)

The AEAT at its core is a celebration of shoe fanatics from around the nation. 2020 was a weird year. Let’s step into 2021 on the right foot. On January 1, please post a picture or two of a favorite pair of your Allen Edmonds shoes.

I will kick this off with a picture of my chili shell Higgins Mill boots.

Happy New Year!
I’m settled in for a full day of watching football bowl games. I’m wearing my lugged-sole Higgins Mills (with Gustin denim and a Gustin flannel shirt).

The only way that this could be better?
With a pair of football-grain Higgins Mills, of course!
Here’s hoping that 2021 is the year that happens.

It was a hard call, but here are my 3 favorite AE pairs (this morning, at least):

Vintage (early 90s) Black Cherry Shell Bristols:

Greetings AE friends!

My favorite AEs are natural shell Strands:

Not shown are BG1As and massdrop chukkas, both of which get plenty of love. Also, Palm Beaches. Actually,
I’ll go ahead and share those:

Rudolph still has the edge over the other mocks.

Tainted Plymouth is a very close third.
