*LOAKE Plain Front Monk Strap: 41.5D (US 8.5D)
Classic Plain Front Monk Strap
Monk Strap Shoes are among the oldest traditional models to survive to the present and they remain very much in the English taste, an aristocrat’s shoe from the old school. The Plain Front version of the Monk Strap, as shown here, is the most traditional of the Monk varieties and the most formal and, like all monks, afford an elegance born of tradition and exude a bespoke air suitable for all but the most formal dress. The Monk Strap Shoe, punctuated with the insouciance of a discreet buckle, proclaims the independence of the gentleman from conservative convention while observing the proven dictates of tradition. This version of the monk by Loake with its dynamic chisel toe takes this dispassionate sophistication one step farther and in a most charming direction.
