To mark their three-year anniversary, New York retailer Leffot collaborated with England’s Edward Green. The result is a limited edition version of the Westminster double monk strap shoe which comes on Edward Green’s 888 last in Genuine Horween navy shell cordovan. Each pair is hand numbered and includes lasted shoetrees.
If there’s anything I’d put my refund check towards right now, it’s a pair of these double monk strap shoes from Ralph Lauren Purple Label. The cap toe detailing as well as leather lining adds to the timeless aesthetics of this shoe but there’s something about a pair of double monks that really help to make it stand out from the crowd in a very respectable way.
Paraboot has teamed up with Japanese retailer United Arrows to create a line of custom footwear, with one of the more interesting pairs being their rendition of a double monk strap style shoe. They’ve swapped in a relatively more chunky and contrasting white sole to make things a bit more casual. The shoe also features a trademark green woven tag on the side with a custom stamped insole.
