    Care Instructions

    STEP 1: Using a damp cloth or sponge, lather saddle soap and apply onto leather to clean and restore its natural oils.

    STEP 2: Moisturize the shoes with cream polish to make them supple and soft, following instructions on the product.

    STEP 3: Next condition the shoes with speed polish, protecting them from dirt, rain and snow.

    STEP 4: Take the heel dressing applicator and press against the edge of the heels and soles.

    STEP 5: Apply leather lotion as needed for added protection and polish between cleanings.

    *For camo printed material, simply rub leather lotion onto print with a white cloth as needed and wipe smudges or dirt away with a damp white cloth.

    Ask & Answer
    Delray Dress Shoe with Combination Tap Sole is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 256.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe, but This is a great shoe and my 6th pair of AEs. My one real issue is the appearance of cheapening the overall product. No shoe bags, the new shoe box started to fall apart as I was opening it. I have been a big fan of AE, but I am considering changing to someone else. Read online reviews and forums, I am not the only one. We all loved the American made shoes that represented quality and pride. It now appears, at least from a presentation standpoint, AE has gone cheap. Are you in financial difficulties?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The shoe was beautiful, but it was too narrow Since the D width was the widest, I regretfully had to return the shoe. As I have aged, the D width is no longer wide enough.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe at a good price. A very handsome shoe at a fair price. And I love that it is made in America!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delray-narrow across forefoot I’m 68. I’ve worn an 8 1/2 D all my adult life. I have other Allen Edmonds in an 8 1/2 D. In this style I required an 8 1/2 E. Side note: always wait for an Allen Edmonds sale price.

    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.

    Asked by: Philcor

    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.
