Monkstraps come in all shapes and sizes. This week we’re featuring a selection from Edward Green, Alfred Sargent, John Lobb, and Corthay.
Corthay’s Monk Strap Arca combines Pierre’s signature style, the simple and sleek Arca, with the unique monk strap style. The result is an elegant and personal shoe that is as distinctive as it is subtle.
Features: Pullmann Last, Old Black Calfskin, Single Leather Soles
The Alden George Boot is just the ticket for spring and summer. We wanted these boots to have the ability to dress up a bit, which is why we commissioned them on the Plaza last. The humus suede is perfect with gray and navy, and of course as always, dark denim.
Features: Plaza Last, Humus Suede, Brass Buckle, Flex Soles
Classic doesn’t always mean predictable. Edward Green’s Hove is an ornate monk strap masterpiece coupled with Coffee suede. Wear these with anything from jeans to a suit and you’ll be turning heads all over town.
Edward Green’s Audley is made on the 915 last, which is the heir to the 82 last. Its toe box has sculpted sides and has been slightly extended from the 82. Made in burgundy calfskin, it’s a modern single monkstrap for everyday wear.
The Chapel is a double monkstrap made in dark brown Misty calf. Constructed from a single piece of leather that wraps around the entire shoe, they are distinctly elegant and uniquely John Lobb. They’ll work well in nearly any situation — with jeans all the way to a suit.
