Double Monk Strap Shoes
We reported in the double Monk strap shoes back in May 2012 and I am noticing the trend of men wearing these shoes is getting stronger across Europe. Whether it’s the man riding his push bike in the streets of Holland or Fabrizio on his moped Rome, it’s undeniably the shoe of the year. These shoes look great with various different styles. It’s a beautiful antiqued leather made stylish shoe. So how are the “Double Monks” been worn right now?
