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.MKE
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.
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.Arezzo
A traditional style with just the right touch of fashion-forward character, this slip-on sets itself apart thanks to a versatile rubber sole.Verona II
This shoe makes a dramatic impact thanks to its classic Italian moccasin profile and authentic bit, which is understated yet fashionable.
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.Strand
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.Carlyle
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.Cavanaugh
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.Schreier
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.Academy
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.
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.Neumok 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.Italian collection copy
