    Gorgeous Boot, September 3, 2012
    By 
    RS “RS” (Washington, DC) –

    This is a beautiful boot – it’s well made and striking in the walnut color which is lighter than brown and has reddish-brown tints. The pictures shown most likely are a result of a creative photographer well-versed in Photoshop. The calfskin leather is supple and craftsmanship is superb. I measured the heel height as approx. 5/8 of an inch. The sole is leather and doesn’t lend itself well to wet weather as a rubber sole. Ankle support is outstanding without causing your ankle to bleed or become raw the first few wears. The boot is NOT waterproof.

    I bought the first pair in an Allen Edmonds (AE) store and they were subsequently ruined during a move (not the fault of the product). I’m purchasing the same boot on Amazon because the AE Store is sold out and can’t get the product in stock for three to five weeks. This is not a boot you want to go without!

    The boot is comfortable; although, runs a little thin in width. My toes were cramped with the first pair until they broke-in with a few wears. Adding orthodics only made this worse. You can’t remove the leather shoe insole (footbed) to add orthodics. That is, you must lay orthodics on top if the existing permanent AE Shoe liner. Recommend purchasing a width up in size even if you don’t wear orthodics. I’m normally a “D” width and require an “E” in this boot. Even with the “E” width, the ankle isn’t too large. Often when you size-up in width, the ankle often becomes too big. Not so here.

    Recommend using AE Walnut Shoe Polish, mink oil and shoe trees to keep these looking fantastic. Again, since the boots are not waterproof, you most likely want to wear something like rubber booties over them in bad weather.

    One can dress these up with a suit or down with dark jeans. They get compliments everywhere I go.

    The red pull tab on the back of the boot is useless and breaks-off easily. Kind of like putting a cheap plastic hood ornament on a beautiful Jaguar. Just doesn’t make sense. Not sure what the AE designers were smoking/drinking when they decided to add such a cheap and worthless pull tag? Not worth a point deduction, however. I’m purchasing again and recommend this boot without reservation. You may want to take your pair to a shoe cobbler and have him/her add a better pull tag because the one on the boot seems decorative, at best. The red pull tab is a bad decoration on such a gorgeous shoe.

    ***Note: the Amazon product description indicates the product has a new and improved pull tag. you may want to call Amazon Customer Service before purchase to verify your new pair has the new and improved pull tag vice the old model.

    whatever (san jose, ca) –

    By the sizing chart on their website, the length of my foot is right, but the width is not.

    I’ve now for 5 pairs of AE shoes and the width runs from d to E.

    D width in these meant my toes were crammed in pretty tightly. Going to a EEE meant that there’s plenty of room for me to move my toes around and doesn’t feel cramped at all.

    The leather is relatively thin by comparison to some of my other AE shoes but that means that they were comfortable from the start- after a few days, I’m only breaking in the ankle area where everything’s sewn together and I expect to take longer.

    Formality of dress shoe, comfort like a boot, March 7, 2012
    By 
    Inspector Nash Bridges (Baghdad by the Bay) –

    I am one of those guys that loves to wear a boot. Shoes just don’t offer ankle support. I can even feel the draft on my ankles when a wind blows. But obviously, you can’t wear your jungle boots everywhere.

    That’s where these shoes come in. They bridge the gap between a dress shoe and a boot. All the features of a dressy pair of shoes, but coupled with a boot shaft for protection and support. With these, there is less of a need to think about which socks to wear.
