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.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 51 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Attractive and well constructed. Just purchased these and have used only once - on a hot summer day to an afternoon /evening event that had me very mobile and mostly on my feet for about 5 hours first time out. I was very impressed with the fit. Others with the look. While I prefer leather soles at this price point - but since AE can recraft these - I opted for this model which provided a very sure footing from the start. Why a 4/5 rating? I found some blemishes and had to return the first pair. However AE's hassle free, highly professional service and prompt exchange were a 'small' blip on the screen. I previously purchased the Fifth Street boots and had to exchange for a better fitting size and that went well. To borrow a now iconic phrase: "I'll be back!" August 21, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Beautiful shoes and comfortable but squeak I purchased these shoes and the matching belt. They look REALLY sharp and are comfortable. The only issue was the squeaking in two different places. I applied saddle soap and even leather conditioner under the strap since I was told this is where the squeak occurs. It helped a little but I also found that the little bit of heal movement caused a squeaking sound in the heal between my sock and the shoe. While this is not a slip-on loafer, I believe having the inside of the heal lined with the type of natural leather often used in the heal of loafers would solve the problem. I ordered an 11.5 B and it was true to size. I did unfortunately return the shoes. If the squeak was fixed, I would purchase them in a minute. I own other styles of AE shoes and really like the quality and appearance. July 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love them despite their squeaking! Excellent 9.5 E fitment of MUSA well crafted with quality materials. Have a squeak when walking or tapping (only pair of my three dozen A-Es which do) but no bother based upon looks. Should shut up after a few more miles put on them. July 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sweet! I have 12-14 pairs of AE shoes. They are the only dress shoe I wear. I hesitated to buy these shoes for a month or more. I finally took the plunge and ordered them with the comfort of AE's easy return policy. This shoe is my instant favorite. They look, fit and feel amazing. The rubber sole makes the shoe even more comfortable than my other AEs. Warning: they do squeak when they are first out of the box. My solutions was to give them a good polish (a good idea before the first wear anyway) and a little Vaseline under the strap where the leather rubs against the leather. I have had the shoes for about 6 weeks now and I have only had to use the Vaseline once. They now don't make that annoying noise. Trust me these shoes are worth the effort. I got them in the Dark Chili color. Amazing and the comments I get EVERY TIME I wear them confirms it. These shoes are sweet. July 5, 2015

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

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.

Answer: 
Buckle doesn't matter that much IMHO, as long as it's a standard buckle style. Much more important is the color of the belt matching the color of the shoe relatively closely.

Answer: 
Focus on a belt with the same color as the shoe, in this case black or walnut

Personally, I think the Manistee belt compliments the shoe perfectly in either color.

If you have them in black the Stillwater most closely matches the respective buckles.
