      I have both the Walnut and Burnished Brown (with tap sole) McAllisters and I find myself with the urge to go back and buy the rest of the colors. I have eight other styles of AE shoes that I like or love to varying degrees but these wingtips are simply the best. They fit the best, break in the best, have the best quality, and are durable. These are a little flashy but still formatl. They draw notice without being flamboyant. I'm in my second year of both pairs and they still look very new. I haven't polished them but do put the leather lotion and/or conditioner/cleaner from time to time. The walnut McAllisters draw lots of compliments with a blue or charcoal suit. I'm told they go great with jeans too but I haven't done that yet. Final note- please don't by a pair of AEs unless you also have cedar shoe trees to go with them. They should never go in your closet without the trees.

      Apparently Allen Edmonds doesn't require any fit training with its retail partners. I've got a short, wide foot with a high instep, so I've spent most of my life up-sizing to get my foot into shoes. Needless to say, I didn't know exactly what size I should wear on the 5 last, but given the wide range of sizes available, I didn't think I'd have much problem. Add to that the facts that AE dress shoes came highly recommended and I already owned and loved a pair of the Walden penny loafers, and I thought for sure I'd be able to find a fitting dress oxford. Wrong. At two different stores, no one could tell me how the shoes are supposed to fit. To make matters worse, the typical response when inquiring about my (suspected) size was "we can order it." Seems really cool to pay for the shoe in advance, wait a week, try it on, and hope any comfort issues are break in related and not actual fit problems. Alas, riding the AE dress shoe hype, I took the plunge and gave my best guess as to which size and width I would need to a local retailer. And when I got them, they had this weird tightness in the mid foot. I wore them for a few weeks, and then decided I couldn't deal with it anymore. The retailer did me a real solid and switched them for another size. So I swapped it for a different size, waited another week, and the new shoe still doesn't fit well. At this point, I'm out of favors with the retailer. I'm not sure why the shoe is so narrow in the mid foot, because my heel and toes are fine, but my mid foot is uncomfortably rubbed by the wall of the shoe. As to comfort in other areas of the shoe, it's a dress shoe-it's not comfortable. It's not UNcomfortable either, but I get into casual shoes ASAP after work. Don't believe anyone who tells you they're like slippers-unless that person wears dress shoes for slippers. In short, I like my other pair of AE shoes, and I really want to like the McAlister. I really, really want to wear this beautiful shoe. And since it's so beautiful, my shoe rack at home will look nice as they sit there, unused. I just wish AE would make an effort to ensure that their retailers have some idea how the shoes are supposed to fit-or that AE would make more of an effort with the end purchaser to make sure the shoes can be exchanged when they don't fit well.

      A smart looking and feeling shoe.

      I am especially pleased with the inner comfort and style of this shoe. I have a pair of tan McCallisters as well. After buying a pair of Lloyd wing tips, I gave them away and ordered the Black McCallisters. It looks as great as it feels. I've only begun to wear Allen Edmond shoes in the past two years. Great shoes inside and out.

      The absolute greatest!!!!

      Allen Edmonds are exceptional! From the quality, down to the comfort, AE never disappoints. I own 3 pairs and am a satisfied customer for life. My recent purchase was the McAllister and boy do these bad boys make a statement. I recommend buying them with the "Dainte," especially if you live in a state where weather conditions are extreme. They are tough, durable, and last much longer than the leather bottom. As long as AE continues their tradition of excellence and quality I will be a customer for life.

      Interestingly, when I looked at the four pair of shoes that I've been wearing over the past many years, all turned out to be Allen Edmonds!

      Not what I expected.

      By 

      from Texas

      Comments about Allen-Edmonds McAllister Wingtip Balmoral Leather Oxfords:

      I ordered the McAllister Wingtip Oxfords with Dainite Rubber Sole in brown. The leather color is dull and flat unlike the shoes on the website that show a light sheen. The leather is obviously different in texture between the left and right shoes. Polishing the shoes has helped only minimally. The rubber sole probably contributes to the weight of these shoes but the sole does provide a slip free surface. The rubber material does not retain a clean look and some minor deterioration in the material is visible. This was my first pair of Allen Edmonds shoes and based on the reputation I expected better.

      This is the seventh pair of Allen Edmonds shoes I have purchased. I am still wearing the first pair I bought over fifteen years ago (they have been sent back for recrafting). They all fit great and are a high quality product.

      Love the shoes, beautiful classic style

      By 

      from Southern California

      Comments about Allen-Edmonds McAllister Wingtip Balmoral Leather Oxfords:

      The Dark Chili McAllisters are my first pair of Allen Edmonds (I have purchased two additional pair of AE's very shortly after). I love these shoes, wingtip shoes are my favorite style of dress shoe, and the McAllister are the best I've seen. Dark chili is also an awesome color, however I wouldn't recommend buying McAllisters or Strands in Oxblood if you already own a pair one or the other in Dark Chili. The high quality calfskin leather looks, and feels great. Two thumbs up on Dark Chili McAllister. Great shoe Allen Edmonds! (Previously wrote a review on the Dark Chili McAllisters felt like the review should be for the McAllister in general.)
