The luxurious shoe brand Allen Edmonds looks back on a long history: Already in 1914 the later founder Elber W. Allen taught the shoe craftsmanship to inmates of a Texan prison. Back then, they wanted to produce shoes that didn't have a break-in time. A highlight and at the same time worldwide revolution was that the shoes were made without using metal pins and nails. Instead materials carefully tested materials were used and the shoes were welted. This is a method which – even after 100 years – is still used today. Thanks to the wide variety of widths and sizes the shoes offer a perfect wearing comfort for every individual foot. Whether lace-ups, boots or loafers: Worldwide many politicians, royals, artists and even the pope value the varied shoes by Allen Edmonds for their extraordinary comfort as well as elegance.
