Today we are going to talk about a shoe that is very popular among men’s style forums and is a best seller for Allen Edmonds, The Park Avenue Oxford. Allen Edmonds is the brand that most people buy first when they discover the idea of buying nice shoes. Mine was an Allen Edmonds Badlands.
The Park Avenue Oxford is a cap toe oxford that is one of the most popular shoes among corporate offices in America. If you’ve ever walked around Wall Street, you’ve seen someone wear these.
This shoe is a fairly standard cap toe design. It’s construction is a Goodyear welt with the welt stitch being handsewn as opposed to rapid stitched. The leather upper is full grain calf leather and the sole is oak leather.
Allen Edmonds is a shoe manufacturer that makes a lot of it’s shoes in the USA, namely in Port Washington, Wisconsin, they also have an outlet store there, so if you’re in the Area, go have a look. They make great shoes in a variety of styles and are mid-priced in their market segment.
I would recommend these to pretty much anyone in any profession though, every man needs a dress shoe. I would definitely say that a traditional Black Oxford is a must have in your wardrobe.
