    Daytona Driving Shoes is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 90.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable Bought these as a present, he loves them. Comfortable, stylish and well made. I only wish I could find these in women’s shoes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shoes Made of Butter These are by far, the most comfortable footwear I have purchased from AE. Like wearing shoes made of butter. Run a little wide, with no complaints from someone who wears a 3E. Perfect for cross county flights or a casual event. They are a bit fragile so keep streetwear to a minimum. They polish up well with neutral (no dye) leather cream, plus they spark a lot of compliments. Work with and without socks. I like them so much I’m ordering a back-up pair. (Still working on an antique British roadster to go with them...)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's like walking on air These shoes are a great fit. I have a 10 eee foot and it is hard for me to find a well made shoe that is comfortable. This slip-on really slips on and is so comfortable that I hardly notice that I am wearing shoes. Wonderful fitm good looking and oh, so comfortable. Thanks, Allen Edmonds.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful blue leather shoe others were spot on. The length and the width run small. However, I ordered a half size bigger and a full width bigger and they fit like a glove. Very handsome shoes!

    I will be walking a lot. Will this shoe work for that?

    Asked by: Tim
    I’ve had experience with drivers and I would say no for two reasons. They aren’t made for walking long distances, hence the name driver shoe, they are made for driving and for lounging around. If you walk in them a lot your feet will start to hurt since they don’t have much structure you need in a shoe to support your feet. Second, if you do walk with them a lot you will destroy the sole which you can’t have re-crafted.

    What color belt would match well with the tan driver?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    Lighter tan or woven leather. A bit lighter than AE “walnut.”

    The Daytona Driving Shoe in Black has been available in limited sizes for quite sometime. The other colors are available in all sizes. Will the Black.

    Asked by: Michael
    The black Daytona style is not longer in production as it has been discontinued. We recommend taking a look at the Siesta Key as it's a similar style offered in black (linked below). Feel free to contact us again if you have 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.

    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 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.
