Looking for a new signature piece for your spring wardrobe?

We’ve got it – and you can win it. A standout pair of handcrafted shoes from Allen Edmonds.

You already know we love Allen Edmonds. These shoes are built to last. And they look great.

So what’s new? Two things:

Want to refresh your shoe rotation for spring? Here’s how to do it.

Fresh Spring Shoe Colors

Spring is not dull. It’s not dark or subtle. It’s never drab or subdued.

And that’s why I love these new colorways from Allen Edmonds. They’ve got the spring vibe going perfectly.

Maybe you’re thinking,

“Bright, colorful shoes? Where do they fit in my Lean Wardrobe?”

Look again. They definitely fit. Don’t forget, your Lean Wardrobe can be a barren wasteland of plain colors and safe styles. It needs a few bold, signature pieces too.

And these two from the AE spring collection fit the bill. They take a modern, casual spin on traditional styles.

First Up… The Maritime Boat Shoes

Boat shoes are a classic casual option that look great with a pair of shorts during spring. But these aren’t your daddy’s boat shoes.

These green beauties take smart casual to a whole new level.

How about matching the green Maritime Boat Shoes with light colored shorts, a webbed belt, and a simple henley or T-shirt for a day in the park? It’s the epitome of spring.

Not so sure about the dramatic color choice? No worries. Allen Edmonds has you covered with with classic brown and navy options.

You can apply High-Low styling with these, too. Choose the casual shoe style in a classic color. They can seamlessly segue with you from the boardroom to the bar – and just about anywhere in between.

Casual Elegance… Sedona Casual Slip On Penny Loafer

These shoes define smart casual. Elegant, classic, and simple, but with design details that make them stand out from the crowd.

I love the Sedona Casual Slip-On Penny Loafers in tan for spring and summer. Think penny loafers won’t fit in with your casual attire? Think again.

These loafers were made for the socks-free style. They look and feel right at home in the warm weather.

Wear these out with tailored shorts and an Oxford shirt with the sleeves rolled up. Try not to feel like a million bucks – I dare you.

Of course, they’ll look great with your dark denim too. The light color makes for an eye-catching contrast.

Love the style but want something toned down a touch? Try the same penny loafers in charcoal or brown. Get them now so you can take advantage of the Annual Anniversary Sale.
