Rated 5 out of 5 by Vikthor Versatile Cap-toe Oxford
I purchased these several months ago during the Allen Edmonds Anniversary sale as I wanted a pair of medallion cap-toes.
I was initially looking at the Allen Edmonds "Strand" but wanted a dress shoe that was a little less formal and more versatile. The Rush Street is based off of the Strand but feature a Dainite rubber sole and Horween CXL leather with contrasting stitching. These details make it easier to pair with chinos or dark denim and allow it to withstand rain better than a leather-soled shoe. Additionally, they are built on the same 6(5) last as the Strand and Park Avenue.
The break in period was a little shorter than a standard leather dress shoe's, which I attribute to the CXL leather.
Also, for those looking for a matching belt, Allen Edmond's Sun River Casual Belt in 10827 Golden Brown Chromexcel Leather is a perfect match.
