Typical Allen Edmonds product: great quality, superb workmanship, and classic style. I bought the blue shoes. They look equally great with casual (jeans/khakis) or business casual (dress jeans, slacks) attire. Lots of compliments from co-workers whenever I wear them.
I've had them for several months, wear them once or twice a week, put Allen Edmonds Leather Conditioner on them once a month, and use cedar shoe trees. They look almost the same as they did new out of the box. The leather is top notch ...just very light creasing above the toes.
The shoe is made on their 65 last, which is slightly elongated and a tiny bit more narrow than you find in a typical shoe. They felt tight across the top of my instep at first, but became comfortable after five or six wearings. Best to stop by an Allen Edmonds store for a free fitting before ordering. If not, I'd recommend either a) getting a half-size larger than your normal size or b) getting an E width from Allen Edmonds in your normal shoe length.
I bought the blue Allen Edmonds Cottonwood belt and blue Citizen Calendrier watch to match...they look awesome together.
