Traditional American shoe brands have seen a major resurgence over the past few years, thanks in no small part to heritage-obsessed bloggers and other cool-guys-about-town -- and there’s no more all-American brand than Allen Edmonds. Founded in 1922 in Belgium, Wisconsin by Elbert W. Allen and Bill Edmonds, the company’s focus was always on a new kind of shoe, both good looking and built with innovative technology, like the use of Goodyear welting to make durable shoes that were nailless and shankless (meaning they had no uncomfortable metal bar under the instep). After landing a major military contract in the Second World War, Allen Edmonds exploded into mainstream consciousness; legions of returning servicemen wore the shoes in a post-war world, and for the rest of their lives. The brand continues to offer its innovative Allen Edmonds recrafting service, so you can keep your best-loved shoes in tip-top condition. And while loyalty counts, it can’t have hurt that four different American presidents wore Allen Edmond’s signature Park Avenue cap-toe oxfords to their inaugurations, either -- here’s looking at you, Presidents Bush, Bush, Clinton and Reagan. All the shoes are made in America, and continue to blend good looks, great comfort, and splendid heritage at your feet.
When snow starts to hit the streets, you have three options: continue wearing your stylish but ill-equipped normal shoes, throw on a pair of arctic explorer-approved snow boots, or opt for something that looks right at home with a suit but isn’t afraid of a little slush. This selection of brogue boots and shoes fits the latter category perfectly. With options in colors like cognac, brown, and black, from Antonio Maurizi, Gordon Rush, and Walk-Over, among others, you can be sure you won’t have to sacrifice style to stay protected from the elements.
