Monk strap shoes or the buckle shoes originated when a gentleman from England visited the Alps and spotted a monk wearing sandals with straps.
Monk strap shoes are flamboyant and add flair and panache to a man that other dress shoes fail to offer. They are a shoe worthy of any gentleman’s collection and one we heartily recommend. These shoes come equipped with single strap, double straps or triple straps (if you are adventurous).
The versatility of the monk strap/buckled shoes is second to none. They can be worn in any environment – an important business meeting or a night out with your lady.
Monk strap shoes can be paired with a casual or a formal setting. From a white dress shirt and navy blue dress pants to a leather jacket and jeans.
