Although contemporary trends have loosened up, classic footwear pieces are without a doubt timeless. The Monk-Strap shoes date back centuries ago when European monks were looking for a better alternative to the sandal, a sartorial classic that will last them a lifetime.
If you are looking for the perfect finishing touch to your outfits or the perfect investment pair look no further than Italian brand Santoni. First launched in 1975, Santoni, is by far refining the cultural heritage of craftsmanship and Italian excellence in hand-made shoes.
Recently Santoni launched an exclusive made-to-order service, #mysantonicolours, which is the epitome of personalization. It offers the opportunity to create a unique pair, with colours ranging from traditional Bordeaux and Cognac to electric blue and yellow and personalised with your initials. Every pair can be teamed with almost everything, looking sharp without falling into conservative business uniform. As a true shoe lover, I couldn’t miss this opportunity and treated myself with a customised two-tone, double-buckle monk-straps. Make sure you add your own flavour and personality to such an iconic classic shoe HERE
