    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 119.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from St. John's Double Monk Straps Look Great & Comfortable I really like the look and function of these St. John double monk strap shoes. The last for the St. John model fits my foot well. The leather upper is supple, thick and nice. The two buckles look and function nice with the leather straps. For me these shoes felt comfortable right away on the first wearing. A new pair of 5th Avenues take a 5-6 wearings to break-in. I love the Dk. Chili color. Yes, I recommend them.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor Quality I really do enjoy the St. John’s Double Monk strap shoe. They have great looks and good fit. However, as with many other AE shoes, the quality control leaves much to be desired. After I received these shoes, I noticed that the elastic strap around the buckle was absolutely shredded. Rather than fight sending the shoes back, I just took them to a local cobbler. While they were able to replace the elastic strap, it’s so disappointing to once again receive a pair of AE ‘firsts’ that barely only pass as factory seconds. I want to support AE, and I want to keep purchasing their products, but it’s difficult when the overall quality has dropped so much in recent years. I could have better luck grabbing a pair of overseas made J&M shoes at 1/3rd of the price. Please, start focusing on being the AE that you used to be, instead of trying to be a fake hipster company. When you do, the rest of us that knew the old AE will come back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and fits I went to an Allen Edmonds store and got sized. I always thought I was size 11 but they put me at 10 and 1/2 triple wide. I purchased four styles of Allen Edmonds shoes, and my chili version of this double monk strap fits like a dream. While all the shoes fit well, this shoe feels the most comfortable and has the most style. I no longer feel the pressure from shoelaces on my foot or have to tie it. While I was worried the shoe would want to come off, elastic bands on the buckles allow for play while keeping the shoe snug. It's a fantastic design and I will be changing all my colors to this style shoe. I'm eagerly awaiting it in ox blood, but I will re-dye another color if necessary. I finally found a shoe that fits perfectly, provides great comfort, and style. I can walk in these all day. This is my second pair of double monk strap and there will be more to follow. Charles

    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!
