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.

Edward Green Westminster, Mink Suede

It’s no secret we love suede around here. We’re equally in love with the Edward Green Westminster double monkstrap shoe. Now for the first time we are stocking the Westminster in dark rich Mink suede on the 82 last.

To be honest I always saw this shoe as a perfect model for the 888 (square toe) last but I have to say this shoe is a refreshing revelation. In addition we added a double leather sole that lends a certain air of authority.

Since 1899 Alfred Sargent & Company have been producing fine welted shoes in Northamptonshire, England. To this day the company maintains their commitment to excellence with pride and dedication.

We have partnered with AS on several levels from their top of the line Handgrade range to our camo collaboration with Nick Wooster as well as house brand shoes. At every step along the way they have delivered shoes of a consistently high standard.

It is our pleasure to present a selection of Alfred Sargent’s “Exclusive Range” models. The range features shoes made the old fashioned English way, welted classics that are a cut above the rest. These shoes feature rolled waists and channel stitched soles, beautiful finishing and plenty of value.

The Ramsey double monk strap is in stock in Oak Antique and Black calfskin on a soft square last. Always a statement the Ramsey is super versatile and now available for the first time in New York exclusively at Leffot.
