Double Monk Strap
Henry Kayes was a German firm, late of Stuttgart, tragically, since 2009, no longer in business. They produced a truly hand-made shoe on a level with Dinkelacher in quality but rather more “fashion forward” in style, witness the present shoe with it’s somewhat elongated toe anticipating today’s youthful fashion as early as a decade ago. The high quality they achieved with old-world production methods proved uneconomical nor could this relatively unknown firm fetch the retail prices of their established competitors, Laslo Vass, Dinkelacher, Eduard Meier and others of the Austrian-German-Hungarian “axis-of-cordwainers”. All the more’s the pity as they offered some artful variations on classic models, as seen here.
Fully leather lined, hand sewn with closed channeled welt and combination heel. A well made shoe which once sold for Euro 700.
Size Details:43-43.5D....US 10D....UK 9E, for the medium width foot.
Near new with thin rubber protective sole (removable) added.
