Since 1922, Allen Edmonds has been crafting world-renowned men's shoes in America. Allen Edmonds shoes for men include oxfords, loafers, sneakers, monk straps, shearling slippers and many more men's shoe styles.
The Allen Edmonds shoe manufacturing process is based on 212 steps that date back to the handcrafting of the first Allen Edmonds Goodyear welted shoes in 1922. Allen Edmonds is also renowned for its signature “recrafting” process that completely rebuilds and repairs well-worn and well-loved Allen Edmonds shoes. This 38-step process includes recrafting new leather uppers and new laces so the Allen Edmonds shoe can live on and the company can return a good-as-new pair of Allen Edmonds shoes to its grateful owner for many more years of enjoyment.
The Allen Edmonds tradition of excellent craftsmanship began when founder Elbert W. Allen launched his shoe company in Belgium, Wisconsin, just 10 miles from the current Allen Edmonds current headquarters.
Today, the process of crafting Allen Edmonds dress shoes, casual shoes, loafers, slip-ons, oxfords, golf shoes, sandals and boots still begins with finding the very best materials available. The Allen Edmonds brand is renowned for using only the finest leathers that breathe, repel moisture, retain their shape and age with grace and durability. Then the skilled Allen Edmonds shoemakers begin the cutting, fitting and sewing processes with an attention to detail that ensures an exceptional fit and unparalleled styling that makes each pair distinctly “Allen Edmonds”. Allen Edmonds men’s shoes may be crafted with single or double leather soles, which are sleek, elegant and typically the best choice for a classic dress shoe. Several specialty leather soles are also included in the Allen Edmonds range of styles. Rubber soles, for added traction, style and durability are also a popular Allen Edmonds style option. For the best of both worlds, Allen Edmonds combination soles provide a lush leather look but with the weather-resistant benefits of rubber.
Finally, whether they’re Allen Edmonds casual or dressy men’s shoes, you can count on exceptional fit. Allen Edmonds shoes are unique because of the extensive range of sizes and widths available that make it much simpler to achieve the perfect fit and ensure that there is an Allen Edmonds shoe for every foot.
