  • Care

    We believe a great pair of shoes or boots is always a solid long-term investment. To keep your favorite footwear in top form for years or even decades to comes, use our 4 Step Shoe Care Process and these essential products.

    1. Clean

    Start by applying Saddle Soap with a Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth to remove stains and dirt from the uppers and bring up the leather's natural oils.

    2. Polish

    Next, use a Horsehair Dauber to treat your footwear with Cream Polish which renews the color and luster of leather. Any time you want to achieve a truly glossy, high shine, you should instead apply Carnauba Wax Polish.

    3. Dress

    Restore the color and surface of the leather on the heels and soles using Heel Dressing.

    4. Protect

    Leather Lotion keeps uppers soft, supple and hydrated while a Horsehair Shine Brush is perfect for buffing your shoes to the desired shine. As a last step, spray on Water Protector to guard against harmful moisture and spills and use a Leather Dopp Kit to keep all your care products organized.

    Marin Double Monk Strap with Dainite Rubber Sole is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these Double Monk Straps! I received the shoes in a timely manner. No undue delays. They arrived well packaged and exactly as described. The quality is outstanding. No flaws or defects that I could find, and the all weather sole is also a plus for these shoes. Definitely recommended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Shoes These are the monk strap shoes I’ve been waiting for. The fit is spot on and the Dainite soles make them comfortable right out of the box. They’re slightly tight initially, but I expect that with any new shoes. I bought these black Marin shoes on sale and they have no blemishes or any other issues. I would highly recommend getting a pair if you enjoy the double monk style. I’ve seen reviews saying the leather is too thin. If you compare these to Strands, Park Avenues, etc. I can see where they are coming from. However, I don’t feel like they skimped at all with these shoes. Extra note: the toe on Marins extends further than Strands, Park Avenues, etc. which makes for a very nice aesthetic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome shoe! Well let me start of by saying I was very hesitate to buy this shoe only because after going to all the 3 locations in the Washington DC area none of them had the shoe to try on, due to the shoe being sold out in almost every size, telling me this was a shoe everyone wants which basically is true, from the moment I saw them I wanted them! This is my second pair of Allen Edmond shoes. My first pair were the Park Aves, which are a must have as wells may I add. Now as for sizing I wear a 8 in sneakers or 9 depending on the brand so this is why I have to try on the shoe before I buy, which wasn't the case for the monk straps. For the Park Aves I wear a size 7 1/2 , so after speaking to customer support and 2 managers from 2 different stores I went with a size 7 due to the " fact and advice " these shoes run big, so what ever shoe you wear just downsize half a size and you should be good. Now as for some other customer reviews I have read alot of people complaining that the shoe is tight or narrow, this is not the case. The problem is that you might fit the shoe perfect ,but its your width that doesn't fit. I would suggest you go to any shoe store and make sure they have a (Brannock device) and you should get the right width calculated. As for me I just needed to get the right size from heel to toe which im an 8 . but as I stated in The Park Aves im a size 7 1/2 because the toe box runs long. My width has always been a D in any shoe , but for the people that complaining its tight or narrow, this is the reason why the shoe feels tight. As for the Marin double monk strap its a really nice shoe and can't wait to wear it with dark jeans and a nice dress shirt and/or blazer. I hope this review can help someone who's thinking of purchasing these shoes. Do it! you won't be disappointed they are show stoppers and the quality is great! Oh yeah one more thing, don't forget to buy shoe trees!
