    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 press against the edge of the heels and soles.

    STEP 5: Apply our Leather Lotion as needed for added protection and polish 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.

    Caravaggio Double Monk Strap is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these double monks First pair of monks that I have ever owned/ purchased. Quality and elegance are both on point with these shoes. I am a true sized 13D but usually have to size down to a 12 1/2 D or E in my AE collections. As most of you, I get nervous buying shoes online and worry about fit. (returns suck for us and the company I'm sure) Very pleased that the Caravaggios fit true to size. I got the brown pair and the 13Ds I ordered were perfect. Expensive? Yes but worth it. These are my 8th pair of AEs and I'm sure they wont be my last pair. I'd advise you to splurge on a pair. Again, they are worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from if you can afford it.... great looking and fit shoe. Italian made, not port washington though

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice appearance Shoes look great. The leather is very stiff, so they feel uncomfortable on the first wear. I have wore them twice now, and I still don't have them broken in. I think it's going to take quite a few wears, but I think they will break in eventually. I need a wide fit, so it is definitely tough to find a brown pair of monk straps in my size. Allen Edmonds is one of the few brands that does offer a wide size, so I will be a return customer. I also appreciate the military discount.

    The Italian Collection is not constructed on our traditional lasts. 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.

    Welting and re-sole?

    Information about the welting is not included in the description, and another question response indicates that due to the construction method, they cannot be recrafted. What is the construction method, and does this mean they cannot be re-soled, or just not recrafted by AE?
    Asked by: Christopher
    For the Bologna is an Italian method of construction that does not feature a welt. The upper is sewn directly to the sole which makes for a super-flexible, highly comfortable shoe from the very first wearing. Recraftability depends on various factors for each style; if the style is eligible for our services, it will be indicated in the online description of that shoe. Unfortunately, this style is not eligible for our Recrafting services. We apologize we are unable to advise if another cobbler can assist you with a resoling. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    How about more modern colors like chili, merlot/burgundy, and oxblood?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    Thank you for your inquiry. This style is not available in those colors at this time. We recommend taking a look at the St. Johns double monk strap, that style is offered in Walnut and Dark Chili. Feel free to contact us again if you have additional questions!
