Introducing A Monk Strap That Is Actually A Sneaker
February 08, 2017
When we set out to design sneakers that look like dress shoes, I eagerly awaited the day we would release a double monk strap sneaker. I've always had a soft spot for monk straps and, once upon a time, I even splurged on a pair of Ferragamo Tramezza double monks. They really are beautiful shoes but they also really kill my feet so they tend to gather dust at the back of my closet.
With the success of our Windsor sneaker launch via Kickstarter this past fall, it only made sense to add a double monk strap to the collection. One that would hug your foot during your journey on the front lines of life. Something that would offer you ultimate comfort while at work, at play or at 10,000 feet.
Coming this spring, we are proud to release our Windsor Monk Strap sneaker. Using the same sleek silhouette of the Windsor lace up and inspired by those Tramezzas I mentioned earlier, we added a clean cap toe and, of course, monk straps. For the upper we used a beautifully supple napa leather to create our most comfortable shoe yet.
The result is a sophisticated monk strap that will be your next great travel companion because it looks great with a suit but wears just like a sneaker.
