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.

Reviews
Delray Dress Shoe with Combination Tap Sole is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 226.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from variable quality is seems I purchased my first shoes. the leather of the right shoe creased immediately upon walking in them; within 15 min. The more formal look of the shoe was immediately lost as if they were worn in from years of wear. I would like to exchange and am waiting to hear from Eservice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Look, Modern Style The Delray model is the perfect shoe to compliment today's clothing styles. I like it because it has a classic look but a design that goes well with anything - dressy or casual.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overpriced and uncomfortable At this price range, I expect a dress shoe to be comfortable. The inserts are very hard.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice shoe. Surprisingly long shoe. Little disappointed in the construction or the leather used in construction.

Ask & Answer

Full leather sole in winter

I've recently purchased the Delray with the fill leather sole, but am concerned about how well it will hold up in the winter. Would you recommend adding a rubber sole? Does Allen Edmonds offer that?
Asked by: Michael
Rubber soles tend to handle wet or snowy conditions better than leather soles. For special order inquiries, please contact our customer assistance center directly at eservice@allenedmonds.com or by calling 1-877-817-7615 so they can determine if your specific request can be accomplished based on current availability of shoe materials and components.

Why are my new shoes so squeaky?

Just bought a new pair of Delrays. however they are very squeaky. Why and what can be done?
Asked by: Anonymous
Lol, I had the exact same problem. The squeek will eventually diminish but if you don't want to wait, you can use baby powder on the part of the tongue that's covered by the leather (where the shoelaces are). This has worked for me. I have also read that you can try shoe polish in this area as well.

What other shoes do you make using the same last as the Delray?

Asked by: Anonymous
I have the LaSalle's that are made on the same last. They're awesome!! Look great and feel great! Your best bet for finding more shoes on this last though is to reference the last guide. You can find it here: http://www.allenedmonds.com/shoes-101/lasts.html

What is the difference between the Delray and the Walton?

Asked by: Anonymous
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.

I notice the sole is not full leather. Can a full leather sole be selected for this shoe? What is advantage of the sole as shown? Thx

Asked by: Anonymous
The Delray dress shoes are made with either a tap sole or a full tap sole. The tap sole is merely an insert of rubber into the leather sole. This insert is to serve as protection to the leather soles during inclement weather. You may wish to view the dress Delray with just the heel tap sole.
