Learn Everything You Need To Know About Sam Edelman Boots.

We’ve been talking about boots a lot lately. We’ve explored different types of women’s boots and how to wear brown ankle boots. It’s no secret that one of my favorite brands for shoes and boots is Sam Edelman. I added a pair of the most comfortable ballet flats ever to my wardrobe last spring from this line and my beloved leopard print ankle boots are from one of the Sam Edelman lines.

When it comes to women’s footwear, the name Sam Edelman should need no introduction, but just to be safe we’ll introduce the brand anyway. The Sam Edelman brand is known for providing customers with luxury quality shoes at a relatively affordable price. While the brand’s focus is on luxury women’s footwear, it also offers a smaller selection of dresses, coats, bottoms, and tops. 

Where Can You Buy Sam Edelman Brand Boots?

The brand currently has 13 flagship stores that can be found all across cities in the US and as well as other locations around the world including:

  • SoHo
  • Beverly Hills
  • Palm Beach
  • Dubai
  • Hong Kong 

Sam Edelman doesn’t just operate in retail locations, their products can also be found on the brand’s official store page (SamEdelman.com), as well as other select online fashion retailers like Shopbop. Sam Edelman’s official website also ships internationally to a wide range of locations, so women worldwide can enjoy his products.

What Are Sam Edelman’s Shipping Options/How long does shipping take? 


The Sam Edelman website has a lot of great resources for answering any questions you may have about the company or its products. Image courtesy of SamEdelman.

Sam Edelman’s official website offers four shipping methods to customers in the United States. The first is standard ground shipping, which is free to continental U.S. customers. This shipping method usually takes 3 to 7 business days to arrive after processing. The second shipping method is 2-day air. This method will see your order arrive in 2 to 3 business days after processing is complete. With both standard and 2-day air shipping, orders may arrive in multiple packages. 

The next shipping method available to those in the U.S. is next-day shipping. This method will see the order delivered on the next day upon processing completion. Make sure to place your order before 12 pm Eastern Standard Time. The fastest shipping method offered by the brand to U.S. customers is the expedited shipping method. If an order is placed before 12 pm EST on a business day, that order will begin processing that day. This method has the fastest processing time and shipping time, but it is unavailable during holiday seasons and national and federal holidays. The brand does not deliver to P.O. boxes or military APO/FPO addresses. 

Shipping for international customers is a bit simpler. The brand’s website has partnered with a company called Borderfree in order to offer its products to the largest number of people across the world as possible. Borderfree transforms the brand’s webpage so that it displays the country you’re currently in, the shipping, taxes, and tariffs for that country, and the conversion of the product’s price from USD to whatever your country’s native currency is. 

Who is Sam Edelman?

Who is the man behind these absolutely fabulous boots? Let’s find out.

The Sam Edelman brand was started by a man named Sam Edelman. Edelman is known for his work in the footwear industry as a creative visionary and legend. Ever since Sam started working for companies like Ralph Lauren as a licensee, he has been making great contributions to the fashion industry. The Ralph Lauren company specializes in four major categories of apparel and fashion:

  • Apparel
  • Fragrance
  • Home
  • Accessories

Sam Edelman also has some other notable achievements like his executive position at Candies or being a co-founder of the Kenneth Cole Brand. The Kenneth Cole brand creates clothing, shoes, and accessories that are modern, functional, and versatile

Another one of Sam Edelman’s major successes is his building of the Esprit brand, which is now an iconic junior footwear brand. Sam Edelman also founded another company in 1987, Sam and Libby, with his wife and muse Libby Edelman. After some time, the two would sell the company and Sam would enter retirement, pursuing many of his other life goals in his spare time.

After Mr. Edelman noticed a void in the women’s footwear marketplace he was inspired to launch his next successful brand which would focus on fashion-forward footwear that every woman could afford. Sam launched the brand in 2004 and to this day Sam still works as president of Sam Edelman at the Edelman Shoes Manhattan offices and design studios. His creative designs still capture the attention of fashion-focused women around the world.

Common Questions About Sam Edelman Boots

Where are Sam Edelman boots and booties made?

 According to an article from WWD.com “Ninety-five percent of Edelman’s footwear is made in China, with 5 percent made in Vietnam.” This article was written back in 2018 so things may have changed since then. Unfortunately, the official Sam Edelman website does not provide us with any additional information on where their boots are manufactured. 

How to properly care for Sam Edelman Boots? 

The answer to this one depends on the material your boots are made of. Luckily for us, the Sam Edelman official website has a care guide that breaks things down in detail for each material. If your boots are made from patent leather you should keep them away from other patent leather and plastic materials, as these can cause color transfer in your boots. If your patent leather boots get dirty you should use a cleaner designed specifically for patent leather. Never use household cleaners on patent leather boots, you will ruin them.

If your boots are made from suede leather then they should be sprayed with a stain repellent before being worn. After all, preventing stains is the best way to clean stains. In the event of dirt or a light stain, a soft bristle or suede brush should be used to clean the area. Be sure to brush the stained area in the same direction as the suede grain. In the case of large or oily stains, you should take your boots to be cleaned by a professional. You should also store your suede boots away from other items that may cause color transfer. 


Sam Edelman never fails to deliver boots that are both high quality and iconic. On top of that, they offer a large variety of boots in an even larger variety of styles. And their partnership with Borderfree allows women everywhere to get their hands on these fantastic products. No matter who you are or where you live, Sam Edelman has a boot that would be perfect for your wardrobe.
