Allen Edmonds has been handcrafting fine welted Made in the USA shoes since 1922. Today, they continue to follow the same 212-step manufacturing process invented by Elbert W. Allen and Bill "Pops" Edmonds when they opened their first factory on the shores of Lake Michigan in Wisconsin nearly a century ago.

Shoe size is more than length. Width is just as important. Allen Edmonds have big, small, narrow, wide and everything in between. Every Allen Edmonds shoe style is sold in over 300 color, style and width combinations. Over the past 2 years, Allen Edmonds have handled over 100,000 unique SKUs, in over 100 locations, presenting some unique challenges for a specialty retailer.
