Dub Double Monkstraps
The buckle closure comes in numerous varieties: square or round, with a solid or patterned surface, in silver or in gold.
All of this lends the monkstrap an unconventional touch. This type of shoe isn’t as formal as a lace-up shoe; however, due to its classic, elegant look and feel it’s a good alternative for men who aren’t subject to especially strict office dress codes. This striking shoe is also a great choice for the larger gentleman. Monk shoes combine nicely with pinstripes, as well as with linen trousers worn with a sweater. Aside from some half-brogue varieties, for the most part these shoes don’t feature decoration; the buckle is eye-catching enough on its own.
HOW TO MEASURE
1. FOOT LENGTH
Measure your foot length by placing a ruler flat on the floor straight alongside the inside of your foot from your heel to your toes. To measure your feet stand on a level floor with the back of your heels against a straight edge or wall
Place an object with a flat edge straight across your toes with the edge touching the tip of your longest toe. Take the measurement from the ruler where the flat edge crosses (see image below). This is your foot length measurement.
2. SELECTING A SHOE SIZE
If your foot measurement is halfway between sizes, select the larger size. You may find one foot is longer than the other, this is quite normal, please use the larger size when making your shoe size selection.
