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 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.

Delray Dress Shoe is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 214.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe for large, narrow feet I wear a size 15B. This is the best shoe from their lineup for my feet (Park Avenue is also great).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good looking but not the 65 last This shoe is good looking and worth the money if you can find it on sale. It ran too narrow for me and made my toes curl under. I could no longer wear the shoe and took it back for a different pair made on the 65 last. I may try to purchase this again in the future but will only do it through the store where I can try it on first. The last is just enough different that I may have to go a 1 size longer to get the width I need in the toes. You will love it if it fits!

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 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.

Does this have a thick padded insole?

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.
Asked by: ironthinker
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 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. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
