Unique Monkstrap Design by Winson Shoemaker

Indonesian Shoe brand, Winson Shoemaker, has come up with a very unique, asymmetrical monkstrap design that is unlike any other. If I had to put it into words it would be a U-Cap, Longwing Single Monkstrap. Its technical name according to the brand is the Equinox Single Monk. Its inspiration came from the peeling of an apple with the wrap-around peel. And they did a good job at mimicking that in shoemaking terms.

Overall I quite like this shoe. They did a great job at balancing the design, with the last and the robust sole. I am unsure if I would appreciate it as much if it was designed as a dressier option with solely a thin leather sole. Its unique patterns complements the sturdy look that they gave it with that serrated storm welt.

I also like this unique olive patina that they applied although I would love to see it in a deep blue patina with black sole edging. That would be the ultimate for me.

Winson Shoemaker’s shoes are handwelted at an incredible price. So if you are looking for something unique to add to your shoe collection, look no further!

A great weekend to all!
