Ripon Black Double Monk Shoes


The monk straps shoe is a rare example of a name that makes sense. Monk shoes were genuinely invented by monks, who needed more foot protection than their sandals provided. The result is a shoe which uses the buckle and straps of a sandal instead of lacing.

The Ripon is named after the historic Ripon Cathedral, in a nod to the style’s religious origins. This double monk men’s shoe is available in black or brown leather, and the Blake Stitched construction of this formal shoe means the leather sole is flexible and easily replaced once passed its best.

The chrome buckles and sleek, unassuming styling of Ripon make this an excellent dress shoe for formal occasions, although this classic double monk can equally be paired with a smart pair of jeans.
