    Shiny Shiny

    For some reason this returned order remains fullfilled while the new (proper size) one is unfullfilled-- so I'll be treating this review as if it is for the shoes I currently own.

    I popped my Paul Evans cherry the right way - with Poitier. I had to have it, and so I have.

    I quite liked how it was boxed and appreciated the shoe horn and sack that it shipped inside with. It also passed the smelling test with flying colors (like some creep you must always sniff up new leather shoes right out the box - it is mandatory). These Double Monk Straps have fast become my favorite. And I mean THE favorites. First thing you notice is how you get a shine that just slaps you on the face and back, yet manages to maintain this sweet genuine look to the leather. I felt weird because I thought I had to polish them yet there was no need. I mean it's just as the pictures show (still, don't you dare neglect its maintenance like some heathen. Worship it). I knew right away I was dealing with the real deal here.

    Anyway, the color I ordered is the Nero version because it is hands down the most versatile dress shoes you can own. So long as you wear something that reaches down to your cankles, you are good to go. Dress pants, YES; Jeans, hello there; Chinos, go for it; Pajamas, why the hell not. But it is important to mention it's really worth buying but so long as you take care of them and not do something dumb like go somewhere crowded/full of rocks because as you would expect they are sensitive.…

    Great shoe

    Love this shoe from PE. I have two pairs of the double monks, the marone and Nero. The shoe is great and the quality is top notch. Will be purchasing more shoes from them very soon.

    Expensive but worth it

    Never thought I would spend over $300 for a pair of dress shoes, but you can't get this level of quality for less. The double monk is definitely the best shoe in my arsenal. Typically wear size 12 or 13 in other shoes. I wear size 10 in these.

    Best Looking & Most Comfortable PE Shoes I Own

    Far and away the best looking and most comfortable PE shoes that I own are the Poitier Double Monk Straps. The Chocolate and the Nero both look fantastic and can be dressed up or down depending upon the situation. You will not be disappointed!

    We recommend ordering a full size below your regular US dress shoe size.

    icon/fitguide/01_sizing Created with Sketch. < 8 7

    Like most other Italian brands (Gucci, Prada, Tod's), our shoes run a full size larger than US dress shoe brands.

    Extra room in your toes is by design. Think sleek and sexy.

    Resist the urge to press down on your toes to assess the fit. There's always going to be extra room because of the shape of our shoe lasts.

    You have the perfect fit when:

    icon/fitguide/03_fit Created with Sketch.

    There is enough room across the widest part of your foot and your heel sits comfortably in the shoe. If you can confidently strut your stuff in the shoes, you're good to go.

    And don't worry about minor heel slippage or extra room in the your toes!

    Minor heel slippage is normal in a new pair of leather-soled shoes.

    icon/fitguide/04_heel Created with Sketch.

    After you break in your new shoes, the heel slippage will stop. Our Italian calfskin leather needs a chance to conform to your foot. If it doesn't, email us and we'll make it right.
