When they arrived, they look great. Perhaps the lighting was not ideal when I first looked at them, but when I wore them the first time, I noticed that the right shoe was not as shiny as the left midway through the day. Since I already wore them, I can't send them back. I took it to a shoe place for a shine, and they pointed out the almost unnoticeable lines on the right shoe. He said it was due to the leather not matching and that I will experience uneven wear due to the lower quality of (or maybe defective) leather on one shoe.
Very disappointing due to the price and reputation of these shoes. I did pay less than the retail of $399 here at Amazon, but are these supposed to be the "B" stock? If so, I'm not aware of it. The shine of the shoes are matching now, but if you look at them closely, you'll still see the lines on the right shoe.
There was one issue. I used their online shoe fit guide, printed it, made sure it was the right size, not shrunk to fit the page. It said I was an 8, but the 8 came and I could fit a finger behind my ankle. It also had that issue of bulging on the sides on the right shoe that another reviewer pointed out.
I returned it and ordered 7.5 which is a perfect fit and no bulging.
Apart from the sizing issue I think they're great. A plain cap-toe is the best for me for work and I don't need a separate pair for suits.
This is my first Allen Edmonds so we'll see if I will be a repeat customer.
The shoes feel and look well-built.
They are very comfortable and form fitting.
Quality control issues.
First pair of Park Avenues I ordered had a bulge that many other reviewers have mentioned:
Quality control issues x2.
Second pair of Park Avenues in exchange had excess sole underneath the left shoe. It feels awkward walking in them compared to the right shoe:
This is what it should look like:
[...] (ugly pair to the left)
I'm not sure what's going on. My Strands were perfect on the first order. I'm convinced that AE or Amazon is selling seconds as firsts.
Thinking about getting these? Don't, go IN STORE and get them instead so you can thoroughly check the shoes for flaws before purchasing them. if I'm paying $300+ for shoes, QC is the last thing that should be a problem.
