Overview

Anyone who has ever had an Abbey or Trappist ale knows that monks know a thing or two about innovation and craftsmanship. Maybe that's why they were the first designers to come up with the shoe with a wide front strap. But what they invented, we feel we've perfected in our new Franciscan, a monk strap like only Allen Edmonds can make. Along with the puritan simplicity of the single buckle enclosure, we added a touch of brogueing and perfing to give it just the right amount of flare. As the monk strap has become the go-to footwear for stylish men from London to Los Angeles, we've shaped this model on the 333 last to create a chiseled toe to enhance a contemporary wardrobe of fitted suits and dark-washed denim. Befitting this modern style, we've outfitted it with our walnut calfskin, which creates a depth of character rarely seen in such a fashionable shoe. Made for the guy who likes to take chances, the Franciscan will make you the toast of the town.

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.

Our new Dark Chili and Oxblood burnished leathers can be cleaned using a damp cloth to remove dirt and any residue. Follow by using a soft cloth to apply our Allen Edmonds Saddle Soap which cleans all smooth leather shoes while restoring the leather's natural oils.

Further details and videos are available on our Caring for Your Shoes page.

Reviews
Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 55 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 Below Average for Allen Edmonds These shoes don't have any cushion. They are not comfortable to stand in or walk in for long periods of time. I have six other pair of Allen Edmonds and these are by far my least favorite. On the positive side they look good. November 5, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent, but noisy An elegant and classic slip on. Goodyear welts and rubber sole make for a very sturdy shoe. Very happy with mine so far. That said, they make noise. I'm honestly slightly embarrassed walking down the hall in my office. I can be heard coming by my colleagues. Thankfully they are a light-hearted group, but if not, I would probably not wear them until the noised dissipated. October 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 So handsome This is my first monk strap shoe, and it will not be my last. I initially ordered a 9.5 (too large, I walked right out of the shoe), but the AE team sent me a prompt exchange. Yes, they are a bit squeaky at first, but it is quite comfortable and extraordinarily handsome. October 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Love this shoe! The look speaks for itself, so I was eager to unpack my new Franciscans. When I first put them on, though, they felt a little loose--like my heel was going to come out. Fortunately I wore them on a carpeted surface for a bit and as the shoe began forming to my foot, the heel slip stopped and they now fit like a glove. They do squeak a bit, but that's typical of a monk-strap shoe in my experience. I have a different pair of AE monk-straps that I've worn for 20+ years and that pair is one of my all-time favorites, so I'm very happy with this new addition. September 10, 2015

I have a pair of these shoes and there is significant creasing inside the cap toe and it looks awful. Is this normal?

Answer: 
Excessive creasing towards this area is most often caused by an improper fit. Please contact our customer service team directly or your local Allen Edmonds retail store for further assistance, as they will be able to better help identify what you are experiencing.

I understand that the Mora 2.0 and the Norwich monkstraps use elastic on/under the strap. Does the Franciscan also use elastic?

Hi, I have tried a pair of Rutledge - size 7D - that fit like a glove. Yes, this leather will be different, but would the size be the same - i.e., should I order 7D in the Franciscan? Worried as others have said this shoe may be narrow.

Answer: 
The Franciscan and the Rutledge are both built on the 333 last, so the fit will be very similar; typically the same size can be ordered for styles that are made on the same last. We recommend trying the same size.

I am a measured 9.5D and found that a 9.5D is my true fit on most AE lasts, including lace shoes, strap shoes, and boots. Not sure about pure slip-ons.

I suggest you start with your regular size...you can always exchange them if necessary.

Answer: 
If you're an 8 in the Strand, you would stick with 8 in this shoe also, but the width size is slightly wider in reality. To be clear; since you're a "D", you would want to order "C'. Short answer: "8C", if available.

Answer: 
The Strand and the McAllister are both constructed on the 65 last, which is the longest in length of all of our lasts; best for a long, narrow look; and often the best fit for those with high arches. The Franciscan is constructed on the 333 last which has a slightly elongated profile and softer line at the outer edge, with a square shape for a more European or chiseled toe. By selecting shoes manufactured on the last that most resembles the contours of your feet, you will achieve a superior fit, only enhancing the comfort of your shoes.

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, keep in mind 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.
