Allen Edmonds Siena walnut shoes. This is a new style from Allen Edmonds, introduced in August 2022. These are Italian design dress medallion toe oxfords with a low profile in walnut. I bought them during the Allen Edmonds Rediscover America sale of October 2022. I ordered them for in-store pick up.

The Italian low profile of this shoe will go well with the many fine dress suits I wear. They add to my large Allen Edmonds dress shoe collection that I own and wear. Overall, this is pair #65 of my Allen Edmonds shoes.


Allen Edmonds Park Avenue in walnut. I think the walnut color is hot, especially with blue suits. Among my first purchases of dress shoes, I bought a pair of these shoes in 2018. Over time, with wear, and with a little fun, the older pair got a little trashed. So when I visited an Allen Edmonds store to pick up the Walnut Siena shoes (above), I couldn't resist and bought this pair too. I promise to keep them clean to wear with my suits. If I want to play, I have the first pair available (wink). They add to my large Allen Edmonds dress shoe collection that I own and wear. Overall, this is pair #66 of my Allen Edmonds shoes.


Allen Edmonds Strand shoes in hickory. This color apparently was discontinued and I snatched them on a seconds sale. I enjoy the traditional look of the Strand, but these are for a dress-down look with denim jeans. They add to my large Allen Edmonds dress shoe collection that I own and wear. Overall, this is pair #67 of my Allen Edmonds shoes.


Allen Edmonds Siena shoes in burgundy. This is a new style from Allen Edmonds, introduced in August 2022. These are Italian design dress medallion toe oxfords with a low profile.

They add to my large Allen Edmonds dress shoe collection that I own and wear. Overall, this is pair #68 of my Allen Edmonds shoes.

These shoes are designed and made in Northampton, England. Goodyear Welted construction. Full leather insole and lining. Calf leather with natural finish. Hand-stitched detailing. Full leather sole. They will pop with dark wash denim jeans.


Girotti Red / White spectator oxfords Size EU43, these are self-designed spectator shoes in the colors of my alma mater. I will wear them to attend suited events. They have a leather upper, insole, and lining. White laces and tongue as well. Hand-painted and crafted (somewhere in the world).

These are damn cool shoes that will grab attention.

Handcrafted in Port Washington, WI, USA of calfskin leather. Built on the 65 last with 360 Goodyear welted construction. I bought this pair in 2022 because I prefer leather-soled shoes and the Black Friday sale price could not be resisted. I bought a similar pair of Fifth Avenue shoes in the coffee color in 2019 as among my first dress shoe purchases. Those shoes had Dainite rubber soles. I found over time that I prefer leather-soled dress shoes due to the classic sound they make when I walk in them. These shoes add to my large Allen Edmonds dress shoe collection that I own and wear. Overall, this is pair #69 of my Allen Edmonds shoes.
