    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.

    Dalton Wingtip Dress Boots with Dainite Rubber Sole is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome boots! Before I talk about the boots themselves, I need to first explain my experience in acquiring them. I'm from Hawaii, but I traveled to Manhattan, NYC for work. While there, I visited the AE store in Rockefeller center. William was my salesperson. I was in pretty casual clothing, but he still treated me well just as any other customer. He asked me where I was from, and we spent nearly half an hour chatting up a great conversation about Hawaii since he's spent time here before. William wasn't pushy at all and made me feel very comfortable in his shop. It was quite some time before he even asked me if I was interested in seeing anything that day. Little did he know that I walked in knowing exactly what I wanted and I was ready to pull the trigger on a pair of Daltons immediately. I previously had a lot of issues finding my size for the 65 last. Being in Hawaii where we don't have any AE stores, I had to order and return three pairs of Boulevards through AE's website before finding my proper fit. I explained this to William and he empathized with my situation. He took the time and care to fit me properly to ensure I knew what size I was for different lasts and shoe types. I finally told him that I was there to purchase a pair of Daltons, and he had me sized for them in a 9 3E. AE retail stores don't keep Dainite soles in stock for the Daltons, so he ordered them for me and shipped them to my residence. He was so polite, patient, and professional throughout the whole process, and it was such a wonderful experience! Once I returned home a few days later, the Daltons were waiting on my doorstep. The boots were absolutely gorgeous! Luckily, I didn't have any issues with AE's quality control for my first pair (I've had quite a bit of QC issues with AE shoes in the past). The construction of the boots were great. The stitching was tight, and the color was consistent and even. I completely recommend Dainite soles if you're on the fence about them. Because of Hawaii's tropical weather, having Dainite soles is almost necessary. The boots are extremely comfortable if sized properly, and I didn't feel like they needed to be broken in. My only concern has already been mentioned by several people. The tongue seems to be constructed out of two pieces of leather with the seam being right in the middle of the tongue. If you have a high instep or purchase a size that's too small, this seam might get extremely uncomfortable. It doesn't bother me, but I can definitely feel that it's there. Be cautious, because it has the ability of causing extreme discomfort for some folks. I don't personally write reviews until a few months of using the product. After two months of wear, the boots have held up well and still look great (I do also condition and polish all of my shoes once a week). All of the stitching and construction has held up, and the boot continues to become more comfortable as each day passes. Thank you William for your great customer service, and AE for a great boot!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks like when the books were in backorder for 2 weeks, someone decided to send Seconds to get rid of instead of waiting for a new pair to get made. The boots are scuffed, box was torn, several imperfections throughout the boots, leather discolored. Will be sending them back. It's sad how I made a big deal on how great Allen Edmonds Boots are (great construction, service and quality) to my team at work, they got me a 500 gift card for my 50th birthday and then I get a pair of Seconds.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best of the best The best pair of shoes I have ever owned. I am a retired Police Officer in NYC. I work in private security / body guard work . I have to look sharp , be on my feet long hours , and be able to get busy , if necessary, in the shoes I wear. The Dalton is it for all the above . The Dainite sole keeps your feet from slipping and wear like iron. This is my 3rd pair of Allen Edmonds Shoes. Allen Edmonds is able to accommodate my size 14 EEE shoe size. No small feat in today's world . I dont go any where else for dress shoes any more. Allen Edmonds is it. Thank you , Allen Edmonds ... RM

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh Got these to replace a pair of similar AE boots bought a decade ago which are now sadly cracked and torn even after regular care from the start with AE polish (AE leather is not the best). Never have resoled them so there's that though. These new boots are ok, the profile is dressy, and the danite sole comfortable. But it's a high boot and difficult to lace tightly as designed, they should have done a mixture of eyelets and then hooks on the upper part as they did on my other earlier pair. These just have eyelets and it's a pain to deal with. If you are looking for a great pair of AE dress boots, I'd suggest the Fifth Street which I also have and are now on clearance. Those are AE at its top game, they compare favorably to British boot makers.

    Dalton or First Avenue boots?

    Are there substantial differences between the Dalton and the First Avenue in wet/cold weather? I'm in the Midwest and my boots take a beating over the next 6 months. I actually just returned a Higgins Mill boot because unfortunately the style was too casual. At least I did not think it paired well with a suit. I like the First Avenue style a bit more but am wondering if the Dainite rubber sole is worth the trade off. I know I can do the First Ave in Dainite but not in black. Thoughts? Thanks very much, I appreciate the consideration.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    We use the same constructions methods on both the Dalton and the First Avenue, the difference will be the fit and the design (wingtip vs captoe). The Dalton is made on the 511 last which is slightly rounder toe than the First Avenue made on the 201 last and has a more chiseled look. Rubber soles tend to hold up better than leather soles on wet ground, keep in mind however neither is considered to be waterproof. We suggest wearing SWIMS if there are any concerns about weather conditions, and thicker boot socks to protect better against colder temperatures. Ultimately, both styles are dress boots and can be paired with a suit, so the selection comes down to personal preference. We hope that helps, feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    Do these boots run large?

    I wear a 10.5E on the 65 last shoes and was wondering if I should "step down" with these boots.
    Asked by: Chitown
    Allen Edmonds shoes are constructed on a wide variety of lasts (foot molds) and each will feature unique fit characteristics. 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. Please follow this link to learn more about lasts: http://www.allenedmonds.com/shoes-101/lasts.html 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.

    Just bought a pair of these. Should I apply any kind of waterproofing before I wear in the snow/rain?

    Asked by: canesauce
    We do not recommend using the Spray Waterproofer or any waterproofing products on fine leather. Calfskin is a naturally porous material and this product will clog the pores of the leather which will affect its quality. To provide an added layer of protection against dirt and water, we offer waterproof premium Swims Mobster Overshoes which allow you to wear your favorite shoes regardless of weather conditions. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
