After Herman Delman’s death in 1955, the company passed through several parent corporations until it was acquired in 1989 by Nina Footwear, Corp. Nina admired the aesthetic of Delman’s golden years, and built an archive of classic Delman shoes in order to inspire contemporary designers. Some of the modern shoes are reinterpretations of those classic styles, while others transform aspects of the company’s history into decorative accents. The Cinderella logo, for example, became an oversized shoe buckle in 2007. Building upon the successful company Herman Delman created in the early twentieth century, Delman Shoes is carrying on his legacy of innovative design. It remains one of the oldestand still vitalAmerican brands of women’s footwear.
