Allen Edmonds TEN REASONS WHY EVERYONE WILL WISH THEY WERE IN OUR SHOES

By | What's New at Rustan's | No Comments

TEN REASONS

WHY EVERYONE WILL WISH THEY WERE IN OUR SHOES

 THE LEATHER

Allen Edmonds leather specialists search throughout theworld for the finest calfskin, suede, shell cordovan andexotics. They hand sort hides checking each skin to seethat it is smooth, fine grained  and free of wrinkles, veinsand unsightly blemishes. When we handcraft our footwear  the leather is inspected again, then cut by skilled artisanswho are trained to cut each pair of shoes to exacting standards to ensure the of our footwear. Our prime qualityleather actually flexes in your hand the way it flexes onyour foot.

 360° WELT

The welt is the piece of leather that binds the upper, theinsole and the outsole together. Allen Edmonds stitcheslayers  of all-natural material together in your exclusive360° welt construction to ensure durability, flexibility andunsurpassed comfort. This allows the Allen Edmondsshoe to function as a single, flexible unit, actuallystrengthening the arch while walking.

 NO METAL SHANKS

Unlike most shoes,  Allen Edmonds are madewithout rigid metal shanks, allowing the foot andleg muscles to exercise and relax properly. The shoeflexes and molds to the foot.

 SOLES

Made of select  leather, Allen Edmonds soles  allowthe shoe to flex naturally as the foot does. AllenEdmonds also uses Dainite all-weather soles  toincrease traction  and Vibram® rubber soles on somecasual styles  that provide lasting wear andcomfort.

 STYLING

The classic  styling found in Allen EdmondsDress, Dress Casual and Casual collection complements every situation  from dress to casual, day or night. Please see our catalog or view ourwebsite for style listings.

 CONTOURED LASTS

Allen Edmonds uses special  lasts that moreaccurately conform to the way the human foot is formed for a custom  fit. Pressure points on thefoot like the big toe, the ball, the outside arch and the heel are relieved by our carefullyconstructed lasts.  It is important that AllenEdmonds shoes be fit properly  using a Brannockdevice. Customers should try shoes in severaldifferent styles  to select  the last or lasts that aremore appropriate for their feet.

 LEATHER VAMP LININGS

Leather  linings in the vamp and a cotton doubler  promote  breathability ofthe foot in the shoe

and help control moisture and temperature. Allen Edmonds shoes have lapseam stitching on the

linings for a smooth, comfortable surface.

 CORK INSULATION

A cord layer between the insole and the outsoleallows each foot to form its own uniquely shaped footbed for real custom  comfort. The foot actuallyforms an imprint which cradles the feet.

 SIZES

With widths from AAA to EEE and sizes  6-16, AllenEdmonds are available  in over 150 size combinations. Themost extensive  range  of sizes  in the world to fit almost  any foot.

 RECRAFTING®

Allen Edmonds offers four Recrafting® packages that restore your shoes asnearly as possible to their

original handcrafted condition. The shoes are put through  the same processesused in their original construction to restore and add years  of additional wearand comfort

Founded in 1922, Allen Edmonds Corporation is a privately-held, U.S.-based retailer of premium men’s footwear, apparel, leather goods and accessories with a focus on American manufacturing. Allen Edmonds’ famous Goodyear welted shoes are handcrafted in Port Washington, Wis. using a 212-step production process. Consistent with the company’s heritage, Allen Edmonds remains committed to providing excellent products at exceptional value for style and quality conscious men worldwide. By partnering with like-minded U.S. manufacturers, the company’s offering includes men’s clothing and accessory needs from head to toe. Allen Edmonds products are available at premier stores worldwide, including 63 company-owned Allen Edmonds stores across the United States, and online at AllenEdmonds.com.

MSP:

Like the city it serves the MSP is straightforward and elegant. Part of the Road Warriors Collection, this split toe blucher’s clean lines look right at home in any business situation while offering the comfort of a shoe that is 30% lighter than other comparable welted dress shoe. And the breathable, perforated, PORON®-padded insole means it keep you comfortable no matter where the day’s agenda leads.allen-edmondsMKE

From our home on the shores of Lake Michigan, Allen Edmonds has grown to the point that now we have stores spanning the country from coast to coast as well as across the world. Staying connected to all these locations means lots of traveling, which is why we’ve created our new Road Warriors Comfort Technology. These shoes are the ultimate in travel footwear thanks to the EVA outsole, made with lightweight foam rubber, and four layers of shock absorbing technology, both of which provide the comfort and support you need to keep yourself and your job moving forward. Furthermore, not only is this slip-on style with a double-gore instep easy to slide on and off at airport security but the larger toe box also allows for the foot expansion that comes with frequent flying. The MKE features an understated moc toe design that highlights the fine finish on the calfskin leather for a look that’s versatile enough to be at home anywhere the road takes you.

allen-edmondsStrandmok

Want timeless Strand style but with that vintage look you love? We’ve reinvented the Strandmok to give you just that. Crafted in the USA, this six-eyelet balmoral is now outfitted with burnished nubuck, a material with tons of natural oils that allows the leather to patina and fit specifically to your foot the more you wear it. The split reverse welt not only provides extra stability but also gives these shoes a wider, more masculine profile, making them a great alternative to boots when the weather turns chilly and you want to hit the town. Other new touches include the studded Dainite rubber sole and heel to protect you from the elements and a Poron insole for extra cushioning. Of course, the artisan elements you love about the Strand, like the captoe, perfing and pinking, are still here, so that the new Strandmok is a fresh causal shoe with a traditional lineage whose time has finally come.allen-edmondsArezzo

A traditional style with just the right touch of fashion-forward character, this slip-on sets itself apart thanks to a versatile rubber sole.allen-edmondsVerona II

This shoe makes a dramatic impact thanks to its classic Italian moccasin profile and authentic bit, which is understated yet fashionable.

allen-edmondsDaytona

The fast cars and fun times of racing are captured in this driving moc. Styled with a lower profile, this shoe has the same dramatic aerodynamic look you love on your favorite race car. Plus, when that sleek silhouette is combined with the contrast stitching on the vamp and beef roll, it only further accentuates the sporty look of a roadster that’s been detailed with striking racing stripes. And, just like any car relies on its tires, a shoe is only as good as its sole. The Daytona has one of the best—an Asti outsole that’s durable and flexible whether you are behind the wheel or on your feet. Unlined for a pleasant fit with or without socks, the oils and smooth finish of the Fargo leather make this slip on look as good as it feels, whether you are cruising down the open road or just hanging around the garage.allen-edmondsStrand

The Strand is Allen Edmonds CEO & President Paul Grangaard’s favorite style! The relationship began in the early 1980s when, as a newly-minted banker eager for overseas experience, he had the good fortune of being transferred to Frankfurt, Germany. Given his age, inexperience and the language challenge inherent in the job, he was looking for a “credibility-enhancer” and some needed gravitas. So he bought his first pair of this distinctly American version of the classic senior executive’s cap-toe brogue. When he became head of Allen Edmonds in 2008, Paul made sure they were one of the first styles reintroduced in the Timeless Classics Collection. Built on the 5-Last, these balmorals are full of personality, thanks to an array of impressive perforations plus a striking medallion on the cap toe. Perfectly complementing its design elements is this model’s orderly and architectural form, which effortlessly conveys an air of achievement as well as refined elegance. This means, just as it did for Paul, that when you put on a pair of Strands, you’ll elevate your game at the same time.allen-edmondsCarlyle

Just like our Park Avenues, the Carlyle Hotel has a long history with American presidents. Though this new six-eyelet balmoral hasn’t yet achieved the fame of its cap-toed forerunner, its name signifies the fact it has just that kind of potential. Already being called an instant classic, the understated handsewnwhipstitching coupled with the burnishing on the toe allow the style’s great lines and impeccable calfskin to shine. The 108 last design, which features an elongated, tapered toe, gives this dress shoe just the right amount of attitude making it perfect for the modern executive that is considered a success but still feels like he has something to prove. Finished with a regular welt, single leather sole and regular heel, the Carlyle instills confidence when you walk into any office, oval or otherwise.allen-edmondsCavanaugh

Whether it’s money or style — change is good. That’s why we took our traditional beef roll pinch penny and gave it a broader toe plug. The result is a contemporary loafer with artisan touches that will have you looking like a million cents.allen-edmondsSchreier

Maybe it’s our Midwestern roots, but we like it when folks agree. That’s why we were so happy that everyone loved our Cavanaugh loafer, and it’s why we’ve taken that same design and given it a slightly new look. By adding a double tassel we’ve heightened its already harmonious contours that come from pairing the broader toe plug with the slightly shorter vamp. Also in perfect balance is the intricate handsewn construction of the upper and the durable Butyl leather sole—both of which allow for added flexibility in terms of form and function. The only problem is, when you factor in the versatility provided by premium calfskin leather, that not everyone can agree if this loafer should be worn sockless for a contemporary vibe or complemented with socks for a classic feel—but for our money they’re both right.allen-edmondsAcademy

A new member to our Dress Casual Collection, the Academy is a study in versatility with a double major in style and comfort. Dress it up or dress it down, this plain toe oxford looks right at home at work or play. Handcrafted in the USA and made of fine Chromexcel leather from Horween with a double Butyl sole, the simple styling is reminiscent of your casual school days and looks great with jeans or chinos. This Academy is sure to win its own award.

allen-edmonds-2Alumnus

The cool, causal vibe of a college campus influenced the design of this modern yet classic wingtip. Made with Chromexcel leather from Horween with a stacked leather heel and sole, the Alumnus has a contemporary look that works great with jeans or chinos.allen-edmonds-1Neumok 2.0

One of our most popular styles is now even more so. Version 2.0 takes our Neumok wingtip with its classic Allen Edmonds brogueing from heel to toe and ups the style even further by adding seven on-trend colors for fall. The black and brown are made in soft kudu leather while the grey, green, navy, orange and red are all offered in Chromexcel. They all have a whiskey colored side wall that adds richness and texture and shows off the natural properties of the welt and sole leathers. Choose your color and how you want to wear them, on the weekend with jeans or with chinos in a business casual environment. The Neumok 2.0 is a statement shoe that says you have a keen understanding of style and an appreciation of quality and craftsmanship.allen-edmondsItalian collection copy

Our line of stylish Italian slip-ons are perfect for the man wanting to complement his European style. The sleek lines and polished hardware cultivate a sophisticated look. Made in Italian factories by true Tuscan artisans, exclusively for Allen Edmonds, these shoes lend an air of authenticity and originality to all who wear them.

Road Warrior collection copy

Stylish and comfortable on the go, our Road Warriors™ feature a flexible, lightweight EVA outsole that feels similar to a running shoe. Inside a cushioned OrthoLite® insole, which can be purchased separately for your other dress shoes, absorbs shock and suppliesall-day comfort. At thirty percent lighter than typical welted dress shoes our Road Warriors™ are made of premium leathers with welted, recraftable construction, to make the road to success a little easier to take one step at a time.

Back to School collection copy

Back to school never looked or felt better. The cool and casual Alumnus and Academy feature fine Chromexcel® leather, split reverse welts and stacked soles that give them a contemporary dress/casual air that looks great on campus and beyond.

In a celebration of elegance and distinction, Rustan’s, together with City of Dreams Manila, launches Piaget’s new steel timepiece made for a new generation—the Piaget Polo S.piaget-polo-s-launch-at-nobu-restaurant-4Based on the much-loved, iconic Piaget Polo watch that was first released in 1979, the new timepiece is geared for today’s generation of “game changers.”

Featuring an ingenious shape-within-shape that is Piaget’s distinctive hallmark, the Piaget Polo S displays the unique association of a cushion-shaped dial within a round 42mm case. Its automatic movement discreetly reveals its beauty through a sapphire case-back. Some would call this timepiece with a bracelet watch instead of a wrist watch, sporting a meticulously hand-assembled links alternatingly polished and with a satin finish that completes the look. The result? A watch that – by day or by night, at work or at play – speaks to and for a new generation.piaget-polo-s-launch-at-nobu-restaurant-6The full collection is composed of the automatic Piaget Polo S, equipped with the 1110P movement available in blued, silvered, or slated-gray dial, and the Piaget Polo S Chronograph, equipped with the 1160P movement available in a silvered or blue dial. Both of these movements have been developed specially for the Piaget Polo S.

During the launch at the Nobu Restaurant, City of Dreams, guests marvelled at the remarkable collection, and had a hand at trying on the timepieces for themselves. piaget-polo-s-launch-at-nobu-restaurant-3President of the Rustan Commercial Corporation Donnie Tantoco said a few words to welcome the guests, and to honour the established partnership of the Piaget brand and Rustan’s. piaget-polo-s-launch-at-nobu-restaurant-2To take it a step further, guests were also invited to experience the elegant and daring sport that is Polo.
