Item Description  Sizing Construction and Origin Mike's Notes

The Delancey High is inspired by the legendary 1980s sneaker culture of Delancey street in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. With nine blind eyelets, it's our tallest high top. The extended padded collar and tongue give comfortable support and a stand-out look. Extra long laces allow you to wrap them around the rear handle. Just like our other throw-back shapes, the Delancey High has a familiar style, yet a quality of construction that's far beyond anything that you remember. 

Epaulet Trainers perfectly compliment the casual side of our collection. We're confident that they are the best product on the market at anything approaching this price. They'll wear in beautifully, and we believe you'll find them to be some of the most comfortable shoes that you have ever worn. 

Epaulet Delancy High Trainers run true to size. If you typically wear a 10D in dress shoes, then we recommend ordering a US10 in these. For a comparison to our dress shoes, this size would correspond to a 10D in the Alden Aberdeen last, a 9.5D in the Alden Barrie or Tru-Balance last, and a 9UK in most Carmina lasts. Many of our customers also tend to wear the same size in these as they would in a Converse Jack Purcell or Vans Authentic - which can be a useful comparison for getting fitted locally. 

For European customers looking at the EU size, we also recommend purchasing your typical size. 

This trainer is made up in gorgeous grained calfskin from Italy's esteemed Gruppo Mastrotto tannery. Although it has the look of scotch grain, the hand is extremely soft and supple. The color combination of red, black, and white is classic and matched to a slightly thicker Margom sole. 

An Italian-made Margom rubber sole provides great traction and a cushioned ride. The sole is cemented internally and reinforced with 360° stitching to the upper. A kidskin glove leather full liner and a padded, removable insole extends throughout the interior. Both whole and half sizes are available for a precise fit.  

The Delancey High is casual style that looks best with jeans and chinos.
