Every time you refresh a men's style blog these days, it seems there's a new handmade shoe collaboration being announced. Not that there's anything wrong with that. We're all for a fresh take on a classic. But, next time you're looking for the perfect pair, you'd do well to take a look at Allen Edmonds. You see, Allen Edmonds wants to collaborate with you. Not a blog, not a men's shop, but you. With their custom program, the 88-year-old shoe company allows you to order some of its most popular styles in your choice of color and material, with any sole, in any size. Two different sized feet? AE Custom lets you fit them both properly. The program will allow you to come up with any envy-inducing You X Allen Edmonds collabo—like this "casual" saddle shoe we dreamed up. Plus, with a full-service recrafting service, you can keep them in the rotation forever. - Jon Gaffney
