The monk strap shoe was originally designed to be a dressier and more durable alternative to the sandals worn by monks across europe. essentially a work shop, the first monk straps were made of durable leathers and featured a cap toe to provide additional protection. that is the origin of the style but they’ve come a long way since then. with the st. john’s we have created a double monk strap with the classic cap toe to which we have added exquisite perfing and pinking along the toe and waist that lend it an air of contemporary cool. riding the line between the balmoral and blucher in formality, the first double monk strap in our refined dress collection is versatile enough to wear with a suit, jeans and everything in between.
