  • Care

    We believe a great pair of shoes or boots is always a solid long-term investment. To keep your favorite footwear in top form for years or even decades to comes, use our 4 Step Shoe Care Process and these essential products.

    1. Clean

    Start by applying Saddle Soap with a Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth to remove stains and dirt from the uppers and bring up the leather's natural oils.

    2. Polish

    Next, use a Horsehair Dauber to treat your footwear with Cream Polish which renews the color and luster of leather. Any time you want to achieve a truly glossy, high shine, you should instead apply Carnauba Wax Polish.

    3. Dress

    Restore the color and surface of the leather on the heels and soles using Heel Dressing.

    4. Protect

    Leather Lotion keeps uppers soft, supple and hydrated while a Horsehair Shine Brush is perfect for buffing your shoes to the desired shine. As a last step, spray on Water Protector to guard against harmful moisture and spills and use a Leather Dopp Kit to keep all your care products organized.

    Delray Dress Shoe is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 287.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Dress Shoe If you can only afford one pair of good dress shoes, then this is the one to buy. With its clean, minimalistic design, the Delray Dress Shoe can be worn with anything, from a suit to jeans. The quality of Allen Edmonds is a given. So I didn't mind spending $400 for a pair of shoes, knowing they will be a lasting investment for years. I'm also glad I paid a little bit extra to special order the rubber coating on the bottom and heel. I hate slipping around on the floor with a new pair of leather soled shoes. Overall, I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A new AE classis in my opinion The Delray, in my opinion, is a flagship classic of Allen Edmonds. I recently purchased my 4th pair of these in Coffee color (and I still wear the initial pair I bought 11 years ago). They can be dressed up or worn casually and are a good compromise between the square and pointy fashion extremes. The coffee color is an exceptional shade of brown and I appreciate the burnishing of the color throughout the shoe. Two aesthetic improvements I noticed in this latest pair are a slightly darker outsole, and the darker insole with the copper lettering. The ONLY improvement i would suggest would be the addition of a heel pad--some AE's have one, some don't. These are comfortable enough without it but it would upgrade the shoe even more. But a fantastic shoe nonetheless!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely comfortable smart looking shoes I purchased my Delrays 7 or 8 years ago in dark chili size 12B. This was my 3rd pair of Allen Edmonds shoes and were by far my favorite up to then. They came and when I opened the shoe box and removed them from cloth bags I was amazed. They actually looked better than the pictures on the website. Not many choices for me with my narrow feet. But I don’t mind the expense of having to purchase such high quality shoes. These shoes fit perfectly and have worn well also I get complements on their appearance. Love the dark chili ! Several months ago I purchased anew pair of AE Strands in Oxblood and recently purchased my first pair of Shell Cordovan Shoes which were on sale on the Allen Edmonds website. Bradley’s which are my new favorites. I now wear my Delrays both as dress shoes and casual. I was amazed how well they look in Levi’s. So far only new heels which I had put on locally. Still very comfortable and attractive. I have purchased 5 pair of Allen Edmonds shoes over the last 30 years. They now are my only source for shoes as every one has been a 12B and all fit perfect . A couple of times I purchased some nice shoes while shopping but for the most part they sit in closet as they just don’t really fit like Allen Edmonds. So I am going to quit wasting my money on on other brands . Allen Edmonds has so many different styles and colors and so far it has been close to perfection I have no need to go any where else .

    Shoe Size

    I have a pair of Allen Edmond's "Weybridge" model in 8 and a half. This model is no longer sold so how can I compare to the Delray Dress Shoe model??
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The Weybridges and the Delrays are made on the 108 last. They should fit the same depending on the shape of your foot.

    A few costumers have reviewed to have a narrow fit. Should I go a width size up?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    Each style can fit differently based on the contours of each individual's feet, so it’s difficult to recommend a size via this channel and guarantee a proper fit. Typically, we recommend trying the same size you usually wear and judging the fit based on how comfortable you feel in the shoes. If possible, we’d love to have you visit an Allen Edmonds retail store or one of our retail partners for a professional fitting. Our associates are trained to help you find the right fit for the various lasts and styles we offer. Also, keep in mind that products purchased on AllenEdmonds.com may be returned within 90 days, as long as the item is unworn and accompanied by the packing slip (we advise trying the shoes on a carpeted surface to keep them in returnable condition).

    I like to shine my own shoes to a high gloss. Does the leather that you use enable one to do so?

    Asked by: Rob
    The level of shine is base on your tools and technique.

    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
    Yes they do. I ordered the Delray with the dianite rubber sole. Very nice shoe and good traction on slippery surfaces.
