Rated 5 out of 5 by JJC8686 A Great Addition To My Collection
I knew this shoe would work for my feet as it's made on the same last as my favorite pair of AEs. The shoes required about two and a half days of wear to feel broken in, which is remarkably fast. I've received several compliments about them, and so far they're another solid reason I love AE shoes.
Rated 1 out of 5 by David36 The curious case of the missing QA
Although I am a big fan of Allen Edmonds, the lack of Quality Assurance on their shoes have changed my perception on the brand.
I purchased a pair of Fifth Avenue Oxfords back in October 2015 and have not been able to wear them in day light as the left and right shoes are of different shade. The worse part of it is that the front part of the right shoe has these multiple vertical creases going down which I tried to capture on the phone camera without much success.
Rated 2 out of 5 Good looking pair of shoes, but questionable quality
These shoes are the most comfortable pair of dress shoes I've ever owned. However, the quality of the sole's construction is questionable. I own a number of AE shoes and rotate through them often so I only wear this particular shoe once, maybe twice per week at the most. Unfortunately, in less than a year, the rubber on the heel is starting to separate from the shoe. I wish I could say that this is a one-off incident, but this happened to another pair of AE shoes that I wear even less. After searching the internet, it appears others have had this problem as well. I have not had this problem with cheaper shoes that I wear more often. Considering the price and reputation of AE shoes, one would expect more quality work. I love the shoe and get a ton a compliments, but poor shoe construction keeps me from giving these shoes a 5/5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by P-Jay My First Experience With Allen Edmonds
Haeving just worn through another several pairs of my then un recraftable dress work shoes, I took the advice of a local shoe repairman here in Madison (who showed me his AE shoes that he was wearing- and purchased nearly 45 years ago ) and bought a pair of these along with another pair. Allen Edmonds shoes are the best that I have ever owned, feeling and fitting great from the start and the Fifth Avenue is no exception. Eight months later, they still look and feel great, but the customer service and the retail excellence are also why I have purchased three more pairs since. The best part is that they are crafted right here in The United States of America so it's win-win! Thanks Allen Edmonds!
