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.

Product Care

Allen Edmonds Shoe Care

When caring for your calfskin, use Allen Edmonds Conditioner Cleaner 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.

Long wait, but worth it. My shoes took a little longer to arrive than advertised but turned out great. Very high quality. matching belt looks & feels great. An email letting me know that the shoes were running behind would have been nice but no complaints otherwise. August 16, 2015
Great experience Visited the store in destin a few weeks ago and had a great experience. Great service and selection August 9, 2015
Great shoe! I have one pair of Delrays in black and one in brown. I am very happy with the look, fit, and feel of these shoes. The long line of the shoe and its delicate split toe make it a nice contrast to the AE cap-toe and wingtip styles. I will soon be picking up another pair of Delrays in chili. June 27, 2015
The good and the bad. Love the fit, feel and look of these shoes. I've never had a pair of quality dress shoes as comfortable as these. Here's the only caveat: About a third of the way down the shoe, from the toe, the leather on top of the shoe has sunk in . There is a bend in the shoe at this point and it has caused the top third of the shoe to "stick up" as opposed to being level with the rest of the shoe. Have always had wooden forms in the shoes when not wearing, so I'm not really sure what's going on. April 25, 2015

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.

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: 
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...

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.

I own the Park Avenue (65 last), Bradley (511 last), and Bridgeton (79 last ??). Of all these, the Park Avenue fits best. I have a long narrow foot, (size 11.5 B), high arches and normal tapered toe shape.

Now I am looking at the Delray (108 last). How does the fit compare to the Park Avenue? Would you recommend this or any other lasts/styles for me?

Thank you

Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in Allen Edmonds.

The Park Avenue is constructed on our 5-Last (65) which is the longest in length of our lasts and fits best on a long, narrow foot. The Bradley was constructed on our 1-Last (511), which is good for the average foot and has a more rounded, fuller fitting toe. The Bridgeton is manufactured on our 9-Last (79) which has a tapered back portion that pushes the foot forward to fit low across the top of the foot rather than the instep. The Delray is constructed on our 8-Last (108), which features an elongated forepart with a tapered and flatter toe; it is similar in fit to the Park Avenue in that it is also good for a long, narrow foot. We also suggest trying styles constructed on the 3-Last (333) which has an elongated profile with a square toe shape for a more euro look.

Keep in mind that by selecting shoes manufactured on the same last that most resembles the contours of one’s feet, customers will achieve a superior fit. 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, 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.

I own a Delray (it was a gift) and I love the look and the quality. However, they are very difficult to wear for a long day because they are too narrow at my toes. I thought they might soften a bit and become more comfortable, but now I don't want to wear them because my feet hurt for a couple days after I walk more than a little bit in them. I have had them for a year or so and have worn them 12-18 times.

Is there an adjustment that can be made or should I replace them? What models should I choose from given that this last seems to be not a good fit for me?

Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in Allen Edmonds.

The best way to get a proper fit is to visit a master fitter in one of our retail stores. Depending on the age and condition of the shoe, leathers may stretch and wear over long periods of time. If you are unhappy with the fit of your Delray’s, we recommend contacting our customer service center at cacmail@allenedmonds.com or 1-800-235-2348 (Mon-Fri 7:00AM-6PM CST); they will be better able to help recommend you a more appropriate size.
