My Bag



Monks have given the world a lot. Cheese, wines, beers, fruit brandies and (some legends report) whisky. But perhaps their greatest gift comes in the form of the Monkstrap shoe. Monks used them merely as a work shoe, as they were more protective and comfortable than sandals. The buckles were their simply to make them look alike to their traditionally worn counterpart. Timeless design can come from the most obscure places, but none have quite made fame like Monstrap shoes. They’re at home with jeans, chinos, shorts or suits - giving any outfit that extra touch of holiness and class. Shop our Goodwin Smith’s latest monkstrap designs here and find your blessings today.
