Allen Edmonds Whitney Collection


Well Allen Edmonds, you have successfully done it again! You have created yet another stunning, functional and comfortable dress shoe. The Allen Edmonds Whitney collection is constructed featuring the AE 5-tier comfort system: leather sock liner, lightweight cushioned insole, rebounding cork infused foam, shock absorbing midsole and a flexible tapsole. The collection is designed using a modern silhouette for today’s professional in addition to enlarged brogueing details.

Whitney Collection Details

I know I just listed a bunch of AE features, so let me break them down a bit further. Starting on the outside and working our way in: the modern silhouette. All three options for the shoe are ideal for the business professional, or just someone looking to step up their shoe game. The three selections offered from Allen Edmonds in the Whitney collection are the plain toe, the cap-toe and the wingtip. I am personally a wingtip fanatic, and with the enlarged brogueing, these are easily my go-to pair.

Functionality and comfort are even more important for today’s professional, who is often on-the-go. I travel every week for work and I need a shoe that can keep up with me: a shoe that will be comfortable for 15+ hours per day and that will allow me to run through the airport when I need to catch my flight. The shock absorbing midsole, lightweight construction and flexible tap sole are the perfect combination.

The flexible tap sole is critical for moving between elements. The tread of this shoe will get you through the rain, snow, sleet and anything else while having the streamlined look of a fully leather sole.

Styling these shoes is just as easy as the decision to purchase them! I recommend a classic combination pairing these shoes with the best suit in your closet! Don’t let that deter you from wearing the Whitney collection for casual functions or even for your everyday shoe!

First Featured Look

For the first look I went with business professional attire featuring Allen Edmonds Whitney Wingtip shoe. I styled a custom blue suit, a wool red striped tie and a custom cutaway collar dress shirt. The winter overcoat was necessary considering it was 10 degrees outside when we took these photos! Also featured is my Allen Edmonds leather briefcase.

Second Featured Look

The second look is another business professional attire featuring Allen Edmonds Whitney Plain Toe shoe. I went with a black plain toe shoe since it is so versatile and can easily be worn with a gray suit or a pair of jeans. I went with my charcoal striped gray suit, black polka dot tie and a custom cutaway collar dress shirt.

This post has been sponsored by Allen Edmonds and I want to thank them for their continued support of Dapper Professional. It is always an honor to work with a personal favorite brand that I have followed, purchased from, and promote passionately to family, friends, followers and anyone else.
