    Care Instructions

    STEP 1: Using a damp cloth or sponge, lather saddle soap and apply onto leather to clean and restore its natural oils.

    STEP 2: Moisturize the shoes with cream polish to make them supple and soft, following instructions on the product.

    STEP 3: Next condition the shoes with speed polish, protecting them from dirt, rain and snow.

    STEP 4: Take the heel dressing applicator and press against the edge of the heels and soles.

    STEP 5: Apply leather lotion as needed for added protection and polish between cleanings.

    *For camo printed material, simply rub leather lotion onto print with a white cloth as needed and wipe smudges or dirt away with a damp white cloth.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Drivers, period! Perfect AE, they are sturdy, comfortable, and fit great out of the box! Color was a little flat, but that is as advertised. To get a better shoe than Allen Edmonds, you would have to have your shoes privately made.

    Replace sole?

    I bought these shoes a year or two ago and love them... BUT the heels is destroyed (rubber that popped out of leather and stitching is ripped) from driving. Any way to replace the sole?

    Is the Daytona Driving Shoe available in Brown leather? If not, can it be custom ordered?

    Asked by: Pete
    The Daytona style is limited to the colors offered online and cannot be custom ordered. We recommend taking a look at the Siesta Key or the Boulder driving shoes which are both currently offered in brown. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    Is the Back of the upper soft and flexible or rigid? A true driving shoes should have a soft back that cups the heel.

    Asked by: Anonymous
    It's "new shoe" stiff, but not rigid.

    Hi, I have a pair of Lexington size 9B. They feel a little bit long and narrow. I would like to know if the size 8,5 D would be better for me. Thanks.
    Asked by: Agepi7o
    The 8.5 D would probably fit better. Remember the fit depends in part on the maker.

    How does the fit compare to the Leeds 2.0 Derby?

    If I wear a 11B in the Leeds, would I be a 11B in the Daytona?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The Leeds 2.0 is constructed on the 511 last which is similar to the 97 last from heel to the ball of the foot, yet with a more rounded, fuller fitting toe. The Daytona is constructed on the handsewn 555 last The 555 Last has a shorter forepart and round toe with a tighter instep providing a snug fit. It is difficult to recommend a size through this channel and guarantee a proper fit because each last will fit differently based on the contours of your feet. It is vitally important to visit an Allen Edmonds retail store or retail partner for a professional fitting to increase your chances of being fit correctly for each last and style. However, keep in mind that products purchased on allenedmonds.com may be returned at any time, as long as the item is unused and accompanied by the packing slip. Trying the shoes on a carpeted surface will help prevent scuffing on the sole and keep the shoes in returnable condition.

    I have the cameron penny loafer and the size is 11.5 A. I have a narrow foot. My question is what size would I take in the daytona driving shoes?

    Asked by: Phil
    I have always found that my standard size translates to all the different A-E shoes I've purchased.

    Fit vs the Duke Loafer

    The Duke Loafer in 13 EEE was too wide for me even thought I wear the same size in the Strands I own. Is this a shoe I should order in 13 E or EEE?
    Asked by: Graftmw
    I would order a 3E. I am a 3E and ordered as such; however, I needed to go one half size up, which I've never done before.

    Would it be possible to compare the fit to...

    For casual styles like this one, (among my 38 pairs of AEs) I currently own the Kirkwood and Grand Cayman. I tried the Ventura Highway and it also worked but just not as good as the Grand Cayman. These sort of look like the Ventura Highway but are on the 555 last. Would you be able to compare the fit of these to the others I have mentioned? My main concern is whether or not they run shorter in length that the others.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The Daytona and the Kirkwood are constructed on the same 555 Last, so the fit of these two styles will be similar in both length and width. We suggest ordering the size of the Daytona based on how the Kirkwood fits you. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
