      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 really superb shoe!

      Comments about Allen-Edmonds McAllister Wingtip Balmoral Leather Oxfords:

      I agree with many other reviewers. Just a superb shoe. Great value, quality, look, and fit. I recently learned the proper way to tie laces, too, so they tighten rather than loosen during the course of the day. I also learned to tuck them under the facing for the best look. Love AE's for my every day business attire.

      The sole makes these shoes great for the wet winters. It is also a great shoe to wear with my kilts.

      The shoe fits and looks great. I took a chance and wore these at a trade show when brand new without issue. Very comfortable if you have to be on your feet for any length of time! Matched these with a gray suit and the matching Allen Edmonds belt for a gala in Paris (France not Texas) and received many compliments on these shoes!!!

      Comments about Allen-Edmonds McAllister Wingtip Balmoral Leather Oxfords:

      I love the wingtips, because it matches my entire navy suit. Although, the shoes is a bit bigger for me. It seems like the shoes actually run larger than expected.

      McAlister Wingtips are Excellent Shoes

      By

      Comments about Allen-Edmonds McAllister Wingtip Balmoral Leather Oxfords:

      I love my McAllisters. They are very comfortable. They didn't need a breaking period. They felt great from the get go. And they look great too!! I actually have three pair of McAllister's and rotate then during the week.
