The timeless single monk strap is ideal for the man that dresses up or down throughout the week. Versatile shades of brown pairs with suits, cotton pants, and khakis. Take these from work to the bars any time of day.
The Bologna construction is a historic shoe making technique of making shoes where the lining and insole is stitched together and then sewn to the upper. This construction is called “saccheto” meaning bag. It is very light and flexible which leads to very comfortable shoes from the initial wearing.
Monk Straps will fit true to size and due to the strap will accommodate slightly higher insteps.
We recommend using a neutral cream on a bi-weekly basis and neutral polish when a shine is required. Neutral is recommended so as not to alter the special coloration of this shoe. We recommend Saphir polishes and creams. Quality shoe trees are recommended after every wear and when storing. Shoe trees will help mitigate wrinkling and help wick away moisture.
We recommend not wearing these shoes two days in a row allowing the shoes to rest and wick away moisture.
Please note our shoes are colored by hand and each pair will show small variations in color due to this meticulous and time consuming hand coloration process. Please also note that lighting will also effect the representation of our products when viewed online through different computers and phones.
We live in a world of mass production but DiBianco is not part of that world. We are proud to hand finish our products and beautiful variances will occur, which we believe makes them even more special.
Although we try to represent the optimal color online, we cannot guarantee the color of your item will match 100%. If you would like to have a better idea of your desired shoe’s actual finish please feel free to email us and we will be happy to send pictures.
