Mens Buckles & Monk Shoes

Monk strap shoes are men's dress shoes that do not have laces. Instead, monk strap shoes or buckle shoes are secured with a strap and buckle closure, known as the monk strap. Monks are also known as monk loafers. Sometimes, the buckle detail on the monk loafers is only ornamental, a millennial adaptation of the traditional monk strap shoes. Monks for men are the third most important category in men's footwear, after Oxford and Derby lace-ups. Monk shoes for men always often have cap-toes and sometimes brogue. Brogues can be traced back to an elementary shoe that originated in Ireland and Scotland which was constructed using untanned hide, while modern brogues feature decorative perforations. Brogues are most commonly found in one of the toe-cap styles: full or wingtip brogues, semi-brogues, quarter brogues, and longwing brogues, and four closure styles Oxford, Derby, Loafer, and Monk strap.
