So have you noticed that the shoe of 2008 was the monk? It’s always been an icon, but everyone’s been hitting it especially hard lately. And if you’re really cool– double buckle– worn with jeans that are either rolled or on the shorter side to show off the ankle– and definitely no socks.
That’s a pretty nice pair of Edward Green Westminsters– Goodyear welted, double leather sole– cost more than my first car. Care for them properly and they’ll easily outlast you.
They are called monks because that’s who originally wore them– back as early as the 15th century. In the 1920s they became fashionable and have been with us ever since. How do I sneak these in the house? Joking, Honey.
