Overview

The literal translation of Delray is "of the king", a fitting moniker given how our loyal Allen Edmonds customer has pledged his allegiance to this model, making it a top-seller year in and year out. Part of its appeal is based on the dramatic interplay between the tapered split toe and the plug overlay, two unique features rarely found on a quality dress shoe. This five-eyelet blucher is further set apart from our other formal styles because it is designed on the 8-Last to give it an elongated forepart that corresponds well with all manner of professional attire. Whether your daily outfit includes a suit or dress slacks, we assure you that the Delray will quickly become the crown jewel of your wardrobe.

A leather sole has a special feel and traditional look that can't be beat. But in certain inclement weather situations or for guys whose jobs involve lots of time on their feet, it can be good to have the traction and stability that only a rubber sole can add. So you don't have to choose between these two options, we decided to fuse them into the tap sole, a leather sole with V-tread rubber inserts on the forefoot and heel. Polished yet practical for the ultimate presence and performance, the tap sole will have you walking tall, and that's no song and dance.

Product Care

Allen Edmonds Shoe Care

When caring for your calfskin, use Allen Edmonds Leather Lotion to remove surface residue and to keep leather soft and pliable. To achieve a fine luster, wipe shoes with a damp cloth and allow them to air dry at room temperature. Then, apply a coat of Allen Edmonds Premium Shoe Polish with a cloth or horsehair dauber and allow to air dry.

Further details and videos are available on our Caring for Your Shoes page.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 172 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by A Little Dissapointed I wore the shoes two times and the rubber from the sole of the shoe started to separate from the leather. I live in Mexico, so the option of sending the shoe back is very inconvenient, especially when I can find a solution here for very little cost. I was however disappointed that a shoe that I purchased for being American made did not hold up to the Italian shoes I normally buy. I am waiting to receive two other pairs from AE and hope that this first experience was a fluke. September 20, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Leather cracked Disappointed... vamp's leather cracked on my black left outer little toe mound after 5 years of meticulous care. (My first Park Avenues lasted 25 years!) Will buy replacement though... just disappointed. August 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sleek, Stylish, But Still Very Classy I own 8 pairs of Allen Edmonds shoes and the Delrays are my favorite. They are a great combination of comfort and style. They are downright smooth looking, and I feel like a big freaking deal when I wear them. I am a very conservative guy, and I feel like the Delrays allow me to be conservative, but add some excitement by pushing the envelope a little bit with their style. They fit like a glove. I do have narrow feet (C) and my Delrays are a D and fit well, so keep that in mind I have had the Delrays for 10 years and they have been recrafted along the way, and they still look very good. Allen Edmonds are the best shoes I have ever worn. August 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fits like a glove It's like having a custom made shoe fit to perfection. When I like something I stay with it. I have purchased over 10 pairs of Allen Edmonds shoes over many many years. My most recent purchase and addition to my collection was the Delray and like the combination sole a first for me and my next redrafting will have this type of sole Very classy stylish shoes and comfort. The heel of Allen Edmonds shoe is the key to the comfort. June 24, 2016

Answers
Answer: 
Squeaking sometimes occurs on new shoes because Allen Edmonds uses authentic leathers such as calf skin. When two pieces of new leather rub against each other, such as the leather lining, upper leather and /or tongue leathers, a slight squeaking may occur. The fix is usually quite simple; general wear will eliminate the noise or you can apply leather lotion as a lubricant. Lotion can be found at AllenEdmonds.com, most shoe shine stands or simply visit an Allen Edmonds store and have a store associate apply the lotion for you.

Importantly, if you have any further concerns or needs please contact our online customer service team directly at eservice@allenedmonds.com or 1-877-817-7615 (Mon-Fri 7:00AM-8PM CST).

Answer: 
Both the Delray and the Walton are split-toe bluchers, but that's where their similarities end. They are made made on very different lasts. Also, the Delray has a single oak leather sole with a regular welt, whereas the Walton has a double oak leather sole with a split reverse welt (also called a "storm welt"). The result is that the Walton is a sturdy, "chunky" looking shoe, while the Delray is a long and elegant looking shoe. I own both styles and I like them both.

Answer: 
The main difference between the Delray and the Walton is the last and the sole construction. The Delray was built on our 108 last whereas the Walton was built on the 79 Last. The 108 Last that the Delray was constructed on will have a longer and narrower fit than the Walton. The Walton has a tapered back that allows for a lower, shorter vamp. Also, the Walton was constructed with a double leather oak sole and the Delray with a single leather oak sole.

Answer: 
The Combination tap sole provides more traction than a leather sole, it also holds up better in wet conditions. The Delray is offered standard with a single oak leather sole. You can find by clicking on this link: http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonlin...

Since you quit making as many A widths. I am having a hard time finding AE shoes, which I love.

I have a pair of AE Stockridge that have the thick padded insoles that are much to tight in the laces because of my high instep. Will the Delray be the same deal? Hurts to take hit on Ebay selling them used.

What would be my best fit with AE, considering I have a 10.5A and a high instep. Leeds have worked great for the instep, but you no longer make them in A width.

Thanks.

Answer: 
The Delray style does not include the PORON cushioned insole like the Stockbridge style. However, keep in mind that each style can fit differently based on individual foot shape. The best way to get a proper fit is to visit a master fitter in one of our retail stores. If this is not possible, remember 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 shoe in returnable condition.

Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in Allen Edmonds.

The Delray and the LaSalle are very similar styles that feature the same fit as they are both manufactured on the same 8-Last (108). The difference lies in the pattern; the LaSalle features additional stitching details at the heel, as well as at the seams of the vamp and the toe.
