Dark Brown Monk Strap Shoes

$ 2,545.00

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 solid cast silver buckle designed by Stefano Bemer in 1989.

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

The Tradizione Collection is the highest end of our line-up. Hand-lasted, hand-welted and sewn by hand, it features our signature narrow waist fiddleback "violino" solo and metal toe taps. It's the very exact correspondent of our Sixpence Bespoke, but made on one of our Ready to Wear lasts.

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

Material: Box Calf 8192 and Shark Skin

Product Code: T2200

Stefano Bemer’s signature and most recognisable 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.

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.
