"Not since Cinderella’s slipper has such footwear magic been worked as in the exquisite designs of…Herman Delman. " Atlanta Daily World, 1952
For nearly a century, a logo inspired by the story of Cinderella has identified Delman Shoes. The silhouette of a kneeling man helping a woman into her shoes captures the spirit of Herman Delman’s belief in a better life made possible by a "perfect fit." That promise, his commitment to fashionable design and quality construction, and his frequent presence at his shoe salons, earned Delman his customers’ loyalty.
Herman Delman boasted that his clients included "stage and screen stars, princesses from Europe and Asia…society matrons and housewives." The company continues to take pride in its diverse clientele, inviting women to "Be legendary. Wear Delman."
Today, the company employs innovative designers who create modern styles for contemporary women. For other new designs, the company looks to its own history for inspiration, using an in-house archive as a creative springboard to update many classic styles with a modern sensibility. One of the oldest American brands of women’s luxury shoes, Delman remains true to its founder’s original vision of elegant design and impeccable construction.
