Monk Strap Chukka Boot
I am almost tempted to call this a Jodhpur boot but because of the height more closely resembling a Chukka Boot and the arrangement of the buckle and strap, this simple is a model of it own. One can imagine its appearance under trousers as a Monk Strap, albeit with a higher vamp, all the better to stay under your trousers. A standard Nettleton model branded for Sears executed in a warm tan calfskin.
Suffice it to say, few shoes of this construction quality are being made today, certainly not at this price.
Size Details:US 12D…..UK 10E…..European 44.5D, for the medium width foot.
All original and VERY lightly worn. These will take to polishing beautifully. Sold without trees.
