My hubby says they are comfortable. They fit well, maybe a little bigger, but he also took the E width. They're very good to stand all day in. The toe box area already has a crease in them from wear. Maybe stuffing them will help bring that out. They aren't perfect anymore, but he enjoyed them for what he needed. The style was just right too.

The heel began to fall apart after just a couple months - not at all what I expected from a pair of shoes at this price. I love the style and look but the quality is cheap - not worth the money. I won't be buying another pair of AE shoes.

This has a stylish design and is easily the most comfortable dress shoe that I own. But this pair of shoes came with no polish on them.

Great shoe. Allen Edmonds are pricier than many shoes but for me, they last longer, are rebuild-able, and offer me greater comfort. This shoe is crafted with an exceptional eye to detail and it is obvious that quality is there in every-way. The sizing for me is true 'dress' shoe size; that is that I order a bit of a smaller size when ordering a dress show than I do when ordering a sneaker.

I've bought cheap dress shoes for years because I didn't want to spend "Allen Edmonds" money. I've also always had foot pain and lower back issues when walking around all day with my work (architectural photographer). I could kick myself after finally trying a pair of the classic Park Avenue shoes. All these years I've been missing out! I have a high arch and halfway between D and E width feet. I'm hard to fit, is what I'm saying. Right out of the box these were a perfect fit. A good snug fit, but no tightness or rubbing anywhere! They also feel a bit lighter than cheap dress shoes. I almost don't feel like I'm wearing shoes. On the first day of wearing them, the typical arch and heel pain I was feeling from my cheap dress shoes that morning was gone by that afternoon after wearing my new Allen Edmonds for half a day. It took less than a day of wear to be able to stretch and wiggle my toes inside them, important for comfort and natural healthy foot movement. My cheap shoes also never lasted more than a year or two before looking bad and falling apart around the soles, so I'm anxious to see how the higher quality leathers and construction hold up to their reputation on the AEs. :) Yes, I was gritting my teeth a bit when paying for them, but these things define the phrase "you get what you pay for".

I have this in the merlot color and it is one of the most beautiful pair of shoes I've ever worn! I've always heard about Allen Edmonds shoes and the bulletproof quality and I can now attest to it. You won't be disappointed. Also, if there is an Allen Edmonds store around you, be sure to stop by and get properly fitted.

These are great looking and very comfortable once broken in. It took me a few rounds of orders through Zappos before getting the right size, largely because the width really matters and affects the volume of the shoe. This will affect the crease and overall look of the shoe. It is worth getting your foot measured somewhere to get the right shoe. Neither an 11½D or 11D fit me right and I finally got measured and realized that I needed an 11½C, which fits perfectly.

Long time Allen Edmonds fan. The Park Avenue was a replacement for a previous Park Avenue pair that I had recrafted several times, but the heels finally gave in. The shoe is a bit stiff as new and requires some break in time. Nonetheless, for road warriors and heavy use, this is the shoe you want. Comfortable and well built, I like this model.

Allen Edmonds shoes tend to run a half-size big, at least at EEE and wider widths. I knew this, and ordered accordingly. Like my Allen Edwards boots, the Park Avenue is fantastically well made of very high quality leather, and made in the USA. I put them on out of the box and didn't want to take them off. The six-hole height is tall enough to look like a boot but still short enough to feel like a shoe. The design is clean and modern with classic proportions and detailing. You can't go wrong with this dress shoe. You will pay more than other brands, but the quality and sturdiness is worth it and these will last for decades.

Very comfortable for a dress shoe. Wore them for a major conference and then a trade show, both with lots of time on my feet, and no break-in period.

Great shoes, though toe is slightly more pointed than I'd like. Seems to run big; I'm having to order/try on sizes smaller than I ever have before.

Beautifully made and super comfortable. My husband was being cheap and buying less expensive shoes but finally broke down and got these. He said they were a little snug first thing in the morning but by the end of the day, he sent an email that he loved them!

My first pair of Allen Edmonds and not disappointed. Well-made, classy look. They were slightly narrower than expected and also took about a week to break in. They say good shoes do not need a break-in period...whoever they are. Still happy with them and they are now comfortable. Would buy again and looking for a brown pair.

This is my first pair of AE shoes and I've really liked them. I wear them in an office environment and they've held up 9 months of 5 day a week wear as my primary shoes. I'm replacing the heels and soles for the first time. I'm using the mail in AE "recrafting" service, which costs $125 (they include shipping both ways). This is a bit expensive to me. I'm used to going to a local Italian cobbler for sole/heel replacement, but I'm figuring it's worth the splurge given the price of these shoes. I have wide feet and returned the "E" size for a 3E; hence I'm saying they run a bit narrow (for me). I also have flat feet and use the black SuperFeet insoles, so that's why I rated "no arch support." The insoles may also be why E wasn't wide enough. The length for me was fine, so I rated "Felt True to Size." I was a bit surprised that the finish was not shiny, but a more of a matte black. Others have said their shoes shine up really great, but mine stays matte black. On prior shoes (which I still own, but rarely wear), I add extra shine with a spray called "Master Quick Shine" that I sourced from my cobbler.

Outstanding quality, comfort and style - right out of the box. I purchased these shoes before a business trip to London. Wore them every other day for a more than a week with much walking on cobblestone and concrete - not a single uncomfortable moment.

I am so pleased with the service I received. To be honest, I ordered shoes that turned out to be the wrong size. Given the cost of these shoes I was quite nervous about what might occur. The team at Zappos handled my situation perfectly. I was able to replace the shoes with the right size and with incredible service and understanding. Great shoes-great service- great job Zappos!

The Park Avenue is the only dress shoe my husband will wear; Allen Edmonds is the only brand he considers when buying dress shoes. These shoes get a lot of wear and still look great after wearing them longer than most would; he has them re-soled and then they are ready for another year!

I have had two pairs of these shoes. I have had my current pair for 8--yes 8!--years (with a couple of sole changes). These are hands down the most comfortable and durable pair of shoes I have ever owned. I will never buy another company's dress shoes!
