Buckled shoes

4 / 4 Article

Striking and characterful – monk straps are this season’s trendsetters

Monk strap shoes, or simply monks, and double monks are noted for their unconventional closure; instead of laces, these low shoes are closed with one or two eye-catching buckles. The embellishment is particularly prized by trendsetting men, as the monk is currently hot fashion news – but it’s very far from being a short-lived fad. Monk straps are long-standing classics.

1888 Monks are fashioned using the same technique as the Derby styles from this premium collection – the Goodyear Welted method – and have sleek, rounded toes. One facing has straps, the other buckles, creating the characteristic appearance. 1888 Manufaktur Collection shoes are crafted from only top-quality hides in a variety of leather types, ranging from calfskin nubuck and suede to smooth leather. This precision and care ensures the shoes offer supreme comfort and optimum fit as well as a distinguished, stylish appearance.

Style tip

Monk straps come into their own when they are part of a stylish outfit. Their charm is clouded when they are teamed with a conservative suit, but their nonchalance unfolds in the company of tweed or glen check suits and slim-fitting jeans. As an important detail, ensure the buckles harmonize with the shape and finish of your belt buckle; this will add the finishing touch to your outfit and subtly demonstrate that your choice of monk straps was far from based on mere practicality.
