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.

It’s a beautiful antiqued leather made stylish shoe. So how are the “Double Monks” been worn right now?

William I is built from pebble grain leather, features a double sole, and is typically offered in dark brown and buffalo tan and will set you back just under £1000. William II comes in black and Parisian brown museum calf. It’s a slightly mottled, antiqued leather made by Ilcea. It also features slightly more prominent stitching on the toecap.
