Burgundy Single Monk Strap Shoes

$ 1,640.00

Blending sleek elegance and a sophisticated choice of leather, this high-necked monk strap shoes are made to be a subtle and yet firm statement. Adorned with a buckle designed by Stefano Bemer in 1989.

This Burgundy Single Monk is sleek and sophisticated, with a touch of personality in the strap made using sustainably sourced Shark Skin. Made on our elongated J Last, with its higher instep it gives the shoe a masculine profile.

Probably an evolution of sandals, monk shoes were surely not so stylish a few centuries ago!

The Classica Collection is our first and still most popular line. Hand-lasted and welted by hand, it features our signature "swallow bird" burgundy shank sole, which is sewn by hand with a traditional Duer machine.

Part of our Classica Collection, these shoes come with individual wool dust bags, lasted wooden shoe trees and our leather maintenance kit with wax and small brush, all in a beautiful wooden box for proper storage.

Material: Box Calf and Shark Skin

Product Code: C2200

Stefano Bemer’s signature and most recognizable last is the J, which elegantly and sensually enhances the curve of the instep towards the ball line. The elongated nose, elevated instep, generous ball line (close to an E) and slim toe box give this last a contemporary look without diminishing its elegance.

Free return for size exchange or store credit. Flat 150 USD fee for final returns.

The first and best advice we can give is to always think of your shoes as an organic object, subject to elements and time alike everything else. Let them rest: after using your Stefano Bemer™ shoes for a day or two, let them rest for a day with their lasted shoe trees. Keep them clean: assuming the shoes rested at least over night, brush them off in the morning, when they are dry. Moisturize them as needed: leather, like our skin, tends to dry-up. We suggest regular use of a moisturizing shoe cream. Protect them: while shoe cream refurbishes colors and moisturizes the leather, our bees’ wax polish is intended to protect it from elements. We recommend to apply wax once the shoes have been completely moisturized and one shoe at a time. Respect them: sometimes, the word or assistance of an expert is required. If your shoes are not reacting properly to your maintenance routine, please feel free to consult with us. For a more detailed guidance to shoe care, please visit the Shoe Care section of this website.
