Consider this a gift to you. Allen Edmonds has two outlet stores in Wisconsin and they are a gift to the common man or just anybody who has not been introduced to the best men’s shoes & leather products made anywhere today. Allen Edmonds calls itself “An American Original” and my heart beats with pride whenever I see the name. The company was founded in 1922 in Belgium, Wisconsin. Read their story online and you’ll be most impressed with their boot making for U.S. Servicemen in WWII and although now only the construction of the shoes is completed in Port Washington, Wisconsin, USA, the quality is the best of any men’s shoe available today.
Consider this; on my last visit in May 2017 I found a pair of Cap-Toe Oxfords (Men’s dress shoes) that retailed for $395 marked down to $150. The style is being discontinued but remember a Cap-Toe Men’s dress shoe never goes out of style. Also, you’ll pay $80-$100 men’s dress shoes that will only last half as long. I buy all of my dress shoes at the Port Washington outlet or “Shoe Bank” as it’s called.
