Allen Edmonds

Until 2009, Wisconsin shoemaker Allen Edmonds had shod every President on inauguration day since Ronald Reagan, and maybe back to Jimmy Carter. (The Carter record is fuzzy). In 2009 the company came up short despite a long effort to get President Obama to wear its classic Park Avenue and a new model, the Hyde Park.It's trying again this year. "We're hoping to get in touch with the valet and offer to send a new pair, "says CEO Paul Grangaard. "It's a new day. It's a new inauguration. I would like him to reconsider his choice."
