The History of the Monkstrap

Believe it or not, this timeless shoe style originated from Monks, hence the name. In the 15th century, Monks would walk around in sandals with buckle straps. They quickly realized that open-toe shoes were not the most comfortable when it came to some of the tasks required of them, such as picking crops or walking along rough paths.

So, the Monkstrap was born: a close-toed shoe with straps connected with buckles.

Many centuries later, the shoe style was adopted by businessmen. Now we see them being worn anywhere from board meetings to weddings or special events.

The Beckett Simonon Monkstrap

Our Hoyt Monkstraps offers a different style that will make you stand out in the best way possible. This shoe style is sure to turn some heads. The two-buckle style looks great with any outfit and you can choose from a variety of colors like Black, Bordeaux, Oak, and more. This style not only looks great, but it allows your foot to breathe so you can be comfortable wherever you go. With our Monkstrap shoes, you don’t have to choose function over style, you can have both.

Alternatively, you could go with the Leonard Monkstrap shoe which comes equipped with one buckle instead of two. The folds and threading on this shoe have been created precisely in a way to honor the past while forging the future. The pristine, smooth leather on this shoe is simply stunning and looks better the more you wear them.

For a classic yet casual look, go with the Hoyt Suede Monkstrap. It’s similar to the Hoyt Monkstrap with the two buckles but is made with a beautiful suede material that looks great in our dark and chestnut colors.
