Buckled shoes, usually known as monk straps or simply monks, are classic Derby-style leather shoes for men. The buckle adds a more elegant and formal note than its plainer closure-free cousin, the loafer. Monk straps are currently celebrating a fashion comeback – and rightly so, because this timeless style is a great fit for virtually any occasion, enhancing a business suit as effectively as it sets off blue jeans. Square or round, single or double, the buckle is a real eye-catcher that adds an individual touch to the shoe. Given this, lace-ups are more advisable for ultra-formal occasions.
However, monk straps have a huge advantage in everyday wear – their buckle closure is a supremely practical design feature and saves valuable time in hectic morning routines. In many styles, the buckle is functional and can be used to adjust the width of the shoe, while in others it is purely decorative. When purchasing your new LLOYD Monk Straps, ensure the shoe is a good fit over the arch to ensure comfort in wear on even the longest days.
Your choices of material and colour will have a considerable effect on the overall impact of an outfit. A monk strap shoe in black polished leather or other muted shade is an all-round talent and the very essence of gentlemanly style, while monks in suede or brushed leather are excellent complements to more casual outfits. Teamed with chino pants and a shirt, they’re the perfect look for Casual Fridays. For leisure looks that exude nonchalant chic, jeans and knitted sweater are the style partners of choice.
