Men’s dress shoe manufacturer Allen Edmonds is making a big effort to help young college graduates land their first job.
To help a younger generation begin their careers, Allen Edmonds Tuesday announced the launch of the Student Interview Offer, which provides a pair of Allen Edmonds shoes, a belt and a shoe horn at savings of over $150 to those with a valid student ID.
“Our research shows that 80 percent of hiring executives say shoes are ‘extremely important’ in creating the right impression in work environments, but only 51 percent of young men even wear appropriate shoes to an interview,” said Allen Edmonds CEO Paul Grangaard. “That’s why we’ve designed this new Student Interview Offer program to encourage students to invest in a pair of shoes that will help them dress for success.”
The bundle offer includes some of the company’s top-selling styles¸ including the Park Avenue, Fifth Avenue, Strand, McAllister, or Warwick. The offer is available exclusively at Allen Edmonds retail locations and will run students $350 for the whole set.
