Why It's Great

The monk strap shoe was originally designed to be a dressier and more durable alternative to the sandals worn by monks across Europe. Essentially a work shoe, the first monk straps were made of durable leathers and featured a cap toe to provide additional protection. That is the origin of the style but they’ve come a long way since then.

How It's Made

The first double monk strap in our Refined Dress Collection, it rides the line between the balmoral and blucher in formality. With the St. John’s we have created a double monk strap with the classic cap toe to which we have added exquisite perfing and pinking along the toe and waist that lend it an air of contemporary cool.

How to Wear It

A double monk strap is a statement shoe, you know one when you see one. And it is versatile enough to wear with a suit, jeans and everything in between.

Product Care

Allen Edmonds Shoe Care

When caring for your calfskin, use Allen Edmonds Leather Lotion 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.

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

St. John's Double Monk Strap is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 63.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The craftsmanship and comfort is outstanding as always AE hit the mark on this shoe, again. This might be my 7th or 8th pair of AE shoes. I've come to expect high quality materials and excellent craftsmanship, and that is exactly what I got in these shoes. I was even surprised by how comfortable they are, right out of the box. There was virtually no "break in" period.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice look -- see comments below though Shoes continue to squeak when I walk -- have worn them now 4 different days to work...12 hour days.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shoes returned. Too narrow. Buying AE over 30 years. Too expensive and sizing not right. I see a change in the products. Perhaps trying to expand and reach a larger audience. Recently purchased Dalton boots which are taking too long to break in. Also very narrow and uncomfortable especially in the metatarsal area.

Ask & Answer

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
Yes,,these will fit you well.

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
They’re a high quality elastic and they don’t feel in the least bit loose to me and I don’t like loose shoes.

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!

333 last compared to 1943 Last

I own 2 pairs of shoes with the 333 last. I am looking at the St. Johns Double Monk Strap which is made with the 1943 Last. How does the 1943 compare to the 333 in terms of width and fit?
Asked by: Mochi
The 1943 last is a derivative of our established 333 last, we reduced the toe length and widened the fit across the ball of the foot. The 1943 is a new last in the Refined Dress category. A soft square toe shape is paired with a sculpted, longer forepart and higher cone than our traditional Timeless Classic lasts. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

Belt to match shoe

Matching belt
Asked by: John
For black, go with the black croc belt. At $295 it's a bargain, and it's a little wider and so shows well.

Can I be measured so you guys can get me the correct fit in any style of shoe or boot? I have 12 pairs of AE shoes, I would not buy on line because I can't get the same size shoe when I go to the store to buy. I need to try on several different sizes and widths before I can find the good fit, sometimes not the perfect fit. But if you all have the size that fits perfect in one pair, why can't you find me the perfect fit by using the styles size? thank, marty417
Asked by: Marty417
Go to your local Allen Edmonds shoe store to get the correct size.
