Monkstrap Madness by Vass for Ascot Shoes

vass-shoes
I am not sure how popular the classic cap toe double monk is these days as it has been a trend now for longer than trends usually last, but when I saw this picture and all of the options, I was taken back to the idea of how nice a double monk can be, especially when you get to see in it in colors outside of black and dark brown. The picture is courtesy of Ascot Shoes is a UK based re-seller of VASS shoes (of Budapest) and what I love about that company is that they really specialize in offering made to order pieces which allows you to see things that are truly unique and different and they never fail to show me great stuff off of their Instragram account, such as this lovely photo of balmoral boots and monkstraps (and two oxfords). When seeing this, I ask myself, does this all belong to one client? Lucky guy if so!

On another note, on both of our sites, www.theshoesnob.com and www.jfitzpatrickfootwear.com our Cyber Monday deals are still going through until 11:59pm Pacific Standard Time (US West Coast Time) today so do not miss your chance to receive core products at a discount of 20% off which only happens once a year in actuality (core product is only ever discounted at 10% when it comes to shoes).

And last but not least, there is 17 more hours to take advantage of our collaboration with Massdrop where our Wedgwood boot is selling for $299.99 (which is 36% off).

Enjoy your last day of crazy shopping!!

  • Aha! Beautiful pictures and at least two pairs are actually mine:-)

    I don’t think double monks are a fad or a fleeting trend. I bought my first pair when I graduated and started work more than 25 years ago. I’ve had one or two pairs in the rotation ever since. And just about every premium RTW manufacturer offers the style. Past the fad stage, IMO.
