Double Monk Strap Shoes

The double monk strap shoe is one of the most unique shoes you can buy. It gracefully embodies a number of contradictions. Its of the moment but also very classic. Its simply designed but surprisingly intricate. It comes from a formal background but can be very casual when you want it to be.

We have a number of double monk strap styles in stock at a wide range of prices and styles. From the suede 505 from St. Crispin’s to the oak Ramsey from Alfred Sargent, all would be a versatile and character-filled addition to your wardrobe.

Wholecut Shoes

The beauty of a wholecut shoe is it’s clean smooth silhouette and unbroken lines. These are shoes made from a single piece of leather, which wraps around the feet like a baby’s swaddling blanket. As a result the fit is so comfortable you may never want to wear another style of shoe.

Wholecuts are more commonly made by English and European shoemakers, not so much by American manufacturers. Here are a few examples of some of the best in class.
