    Care Instructions

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

    STEP 2: Moisturize the shoes with our Cream Polish to make them supple and soft, following instructions on the product.

    STEP 3: Condition the shoes with our Speed Polish, protecting them from dirt, rain and snow.

    STEP 4: Take our Heel dressing applicator and apply to the edge of the heel and sole.

    STEP 5: Apply our Leather Lotion as needed for added protection and polish in between cleanings. Use our Horsehair Shine Brush to buff shoes to a desired shine.

    *For camo printed leather, simply rub our Leather Lotion onto print with our Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth as needed and wipe smudges or dirt away with a damp cloth.

    St. John's Double Monk Strap is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 108.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Top Notch quality and looks This style really stands out and can be worn with jeans or a suit. You really need to make sure you are sized correctly.This was my only disappointment as they are 1/2 inch larger than what I need.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I Love the shoe and wanted it to work out, but........... Purchased these online in dark Chili and I love the shoe, however, there is a quality issue with the right shoe. The monk strap does not sit correctly and exposes the brogued leather underneath the strap. Replacement pair were exactly the same. Tried to resolve the issue with customer service and three trips to my local AE store, but to no avail. So, after two frustrating months I'm returning the shoes and I have to move on. I hope the AE quality team will correct the issue for future purchasers.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Recommend Avoiding I love the way they look but they left a painful blister. I was even fitted in the store by a master fitter after I was unsure about the size I had purchased on-line, which was larger by the way. Guess I should have kept those. To make matters worse I bought two pairs!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Italian leather, first time purchase from AE, tho I’ve been a customer for decades. I expected these to have a finish like all my other AE shoes. Wrong. Perhaps the matte finish is popular in Italy, but I’ve learned my lesson. As traditional as I am, I’ll be more careful in the future with my purchases from this American company. Perhaps your marketing dept should promote the matte finish as “European.” Maybe the younger crowd wants this look. But, I still prefer a highly polished shoe.

    Belt for dark chili

    What is the best belt for the color dark chili? I notice some other belts are a darker version of “dark chili”. Love the shoe but want the matching belt.

    About shoes with same last

    I would like to know whether different shoes with same last would have the same fit. Like the ST. JOHN'S DOUBLE MONK STRAP, the EXCHANGE PLACE CAP-TOE DRESS SHOE and the LEIDEN WINGTIP BLUCHER are all manufactured in 1943 last, so if the LEIDEN's 9D fits me perfectly, would 9D of the other two pairs fit me well? Because in my understanding, the same last means the same shape of shoes, so the same fit. Thank you, K.
    Asked by: CostuK
    No these do not have the exact same fit. I have the double monks in 9 3E (and honestly the 9 E would probably be better tighter fit), while the Leidens I had to get in 9.5 3E. Don't know why, but the Leidens were putting pressure on my pinky toe in the size 9 3E even though I don't have that issue with the double monks. I had later found out that that the last isn't the best fit for me, my foot prefers the 201 last.

    How are the buckles attached?

    Are the buckles attached to the leather, or held on with elastic? I find if its just elastic the shoes always feel loose if there is elastic that simply holds the buckles to the side of the shoe so the shoes look correct that would be fine.
    Asked by: Mike
    The bottom/lower buckle is attached with a leather loop, and the top buckle is attached with an elastic loop that has some give.

    How Long will the Squeaking Last??

    I love the looks of my St. Johns and they are as comfortable as my McAllister's but the squeaking is driving me nuts. I understand that the flap over the instep (leather on leather) is causing the noise. I only wear these in the house because they are too noisy to wear in public!!! Any ideas or tips on how to make this noise go away???
    Asked by: sandiegoken
    The show lotion worked immediately....Thanks, I applied it to the tongue and underside of the flap and the squeaks are gone.

    is this a slip on or do you have to buckel and unbuckel when putting on & off?

    Asked by: Hike
    Wouldn't advise to use this show as slip on. I always unbuckle before putting them on

    Light Chili or dark Chili?

    The color just says "Chili". Is it your Dark Chili or your previous (lighter) Chili? What shoe polish would I use? Also, will this be available in Oxblood anytime soon? Thanks!
