    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.

    Umbria Plain-Toe Monk Strap is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from This model has thinner soles, smaller buckles, and reduced overall quality than in years past. I would not have posted had AE not emailed to request this review. Perhaps costs have increased. Perhaps competition is stiffer. My view, given that I was asked, is that after owning mostly Allen Edmonds for decades, the quality has substantially decreased, perhaps to maintain a price point. I prefer Alden now.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from True disappointment !! I rarely write reviews but had to here. Big whiff for AE on this shoe. I own a dozen pair of AE's and this one is just not right. Thin plastic-like leather, mediocre buckle and tight fit on a medium width. Purchased from AE at normal pricing which wasn't cheap. Was def expecting more and rec'd way less. So hard to find a quality, dark brown monk strap....the search continues.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from BRING BACK THE NORWICH PLEASE I have 30+ pairs of AE shoes and this is the first pair that did not fit true to size. Could barely fit my foot into the shoe. And this shoe unfortunately is not recraftable. I have 3 pair of Norwich shoes that I have recrafted multiple times but I am running out of recrafting options with them. I will continue to look for a new single monk strap shoes in the market, but it would be great if you re-introduced the Norwich.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Shoe pleasing to the eyes but surprisingly narrow for a wide shoe. Shoe too narrow for a 3w and I also have that same shoe in another color and it wears well.

    Is this in store as well or just online?

    Asked by: Hans

    Is this the split toe and why can't I highlight EEE width?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    We're so sorry for any confusion or inconvenience caused. This shoe is a plain toe, not split toe. The EEE width is currently available in both black and brown, but may not be available in all sizes. Thank you for your interest in our footwear.

    What last?

    What last is this made on?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The Italian Collection is not constructed on our traditional lasts as it's made in Italy using the Bologna Construction. This style has the sleek profile of Italian shoe but with the comfort that comes from the more generous American style toe box. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions!
