Sartorially sharp and a key trend - discover the season’s definitive shoe style
The monk shoe is distinguished by either single or double straps that fold over the vamp and are fastened by buckles.
Originating in Europe during the 15th century, and worn primarily by monks (hence the name), centuries later the monk strap became the go-to shoe for gentlemen who preferred something reserved and elevated.
Sitting somewhere between Oxfords and Derbies the versatile double monk strap shoe is considered the true sartorialist shoe of choice.
When updated in suede, formal shoes instantly take on a relaxed charm, enabling them to traverse just about any event your calendar may present. Team with tailored trousers or jeans for a smart/casual look.
Brown leather monk straps are arguably the most versatile and can be worn in both formal and informal settings. The perfect shoe for a light suit, during the colder months team with navy or grey chinos and a sweater for a relaxed look.
