Buy It Now | John Lobb Leather Monk-Strap Shoe


Double-buckle John Lobb monk-strap shoes in heavy brown leather. Finished with a toe cap construction and stitch seam detail, these handmade shoes are a sartorial classic that will last a lifetime if cared for properly.

The 'William' model, with its two secure buckles and pointed toe, was first developed by John Lobb in 1945. Monk-strap shoes always fasten with one or more buckles instead of laces. It is thought that Italian monks wore similar styles in medieval times.

John Lobb made shoes and boots for miners of the Australian gold rush before returning to London, England, and opening his first shop on Regent Street in 1866.
