Excellent shoes. This is my second pair of Allen Edmonds, and level of craftsmanship is immediately apparent. They fit like a glove right out of the box, and were very comfortable wearing them all day. I'm actually literally a little excited to know what they're going to feel like once they're broken in! I purchased a Walnut pair, and the burnished toe is subtle, but really adds a nice dynamic to the shoe. These shoes look great with dress slacks, but just as good with a nice pair of jeans as well. From a style perspective, they were a little more narrow/pointy than I thought they were going to be from the pics, but that doesn't diminish my praise of them. I will definitely be buying more AE shoes in the future!

Love the look of this shoe. Only problem is it's not a comfortable shoe. I'm going back to Ecco and their clunky but comfortable shoes.

I have tried quite a few different shoes to dress up or dress down and these in dark brown fit my bill very well. Wherever I went Online, people raved about Allen Edmonds Oxfords and Bluchers. Since I do not wear suits often, Park Avenue or Fifth Avenue would be rarely worn although their reputation was second to none. Allen Edmonds Cliftons were another candidate. However, the only online website who had them available were out of my size in brown color. So they were out of equation. Zappos' free shipping and free return is a great service that set a new trend in online shoe sales. Now everyone is doing it. I thank Zappos for that. But no other online store ships/credits as fast as Zappos or has a comprehensive inventory like Zappos.com. I must have ordered and returned a half dozen shoes from Zappos before I finally found these great looking shoes that fit my feet like soft leather gloves. My Nike size is 8½ and Allen Edmonds size is 7D, for reference. The Kenilworths are my first Allen Edmonds shoes and I am very impressed with how they fit and feel on my feet. Right out of the box, there are no uncomfortable feelings around the ankle - the back of the ankles will not have to suffer new-shoe blisters. I am wearing these to work tomorrow!

They look great. Beautifully constructed. Break in period typical, they make some noises (leather squeaks). Otherwise looking forward to having them for quite some time.

These are great shoes! They look great. When new, the leather is stiff, but it began to break in and conform to my feet after just a thirty-minute walk. Clearly the designers of this shoe have knowledge of the proper shape of a shoe for the typical foot. The quality of the materials and craftsmanship is excellent. The finish of the uppers is as beautiful as the photos indicate. The burnishing is subtle and classy. Overall, just a simple, well-made, tasteful item. If the world took a page from these shoemakers, it would be a better place.

After about a month in, I really like these shoes. I bought mine in black and look forward to getting the walnut color too. Some people say they're uncomfortable which I found to be true at the start, but like pretty much every shoe, they get more comfortable with use as they break in and shape to your foot. Regarding the complaints about the sides bulging out, that doesn't happen if you order the right width. Mine are perfect. As far as looks go, it's a very masculine looking shoe. It's hard NOT to have your confidence kick up a notch while wearing them. I'm 26, and they make me look like a mature and responsible young man -- a guy who's going places and knows how to dress -- and women appreciate that. Overall, purchasing this shoe stepped my footwear game up big-time. You always want to have a quality pair of shoes like this in your closet because not only do they look great, they're timeless, and versatile too. They look just as good in jeans as they do in dress pants. I'm hoping when you pay this much for a shoe that you wont have to buy again for at least a few years. I'd highly recommend getting shoe trees to hold their shape and get the most out of them. Downsides are that if you live in cold weather, these don't keep your feet warm. Also they're flat on the bottom so walking on ice is an issue. I slipped a couple times on some wet leaves too. Just be cautious of that.

Great shoe. My second pair of Allen-Edmonds. I wore these with a Brooks Brothers tuxedo for my wedding, and they were perfect.

What a phenomenal made in USA shoe! I ordered this shoe and wore it to two weddings in back to back weekends. With all the walking and dancing associated with a Chicago wedding shoe looks new and is the most comfortable dress shoe I have ever worn out of the box!

Excellent quality, style and fit. Allen-Edmonds seems to be one of the few brands I can count for good quality and value. Yes, it's a bit expensive but worth it. Tried some other brands that used to be better quality but now are junk. Thankfully Allen-Edmonds has continued to keep their quality high.

The only issue I have is comfort or at least the lack of it. Everything else was great so this aspect was a little disappointing.

This is the first pair of Allen Edmonds I have purchased and chances are my last. The break in time is horrendous. The leather is extremely stiff unlike other quality manufacturers (To Boot or Bruno Magli). I have had these shoes stretched several times at the AE store and they still rub blisters on the top of my foot. No shoe I have ever owned has done this. Go to the AE website you will see other such reviews for other types of AE shoes.

The rubber pads on the heels are glued on. One of the rubber pads fell of the shoe when they were exactly one month old! Really? Such expensive shoes and the heel falls off after only a month. Never again, Allen-Edmonds.
