This Single Monkstrap with apron stitching has a chiseled square toe. This is our E or Wider width which accommodates those requiring more width in the ball of the foot. The Marmo (marble) color will bring up greys, navys, khaki's, and jeans. Single monk straps are beginning to overshadow their double monkstrap cousins who have been in fashion for several years now. Monkstraps are very versatile and this one can be worn with suits or with jeans.
Made using a Black Rapid construction which incorporates a second mid-sole, these can be resoled again and again but are not as heavy as a goodyear welted shoe.
Made from top quality box calf, all our calfskin shoes are tricked by hand and laa minimum of two weeks.
These shoes incorporate the "Sugharina" cork innerbedding which makes the shoes very comfortable.
The toes of the soles are tapped with nails which help reduce the wear of the toe area.
The inside corner of the heel is clipped to avoid catching on the cuffs of your pants.
The shoes are hand-burnished using numerous different colored polishes and creams. The smokey finish is helped by the use of alcohol (champagne).
This E Width model is designed for those requiring more room in the ball of the foot.
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.
