Monk shoes are said to have originated in Europe sometime in the 15 th century. Monks at the time wore a closed-toe type sandal that has inspired the design of today’s monk strap shoes. These shoes are dress shoes that do not have laces but are secured with buckles or straps instead.

HOW TO STYLE MONK SHOES:
This style of shoe instantly gives your appearance a refined look. But this doesn’t mean that monk shoes need only be worn to office or for business meetings. They look just as great for occasions like weddings and birthday parties. It all has to do with which style of shoe you select for what occasion. Here are some tips to help you pick the right style of shoes for right occasion.
For office wear: Single strap monk shoes have a cleaner silhouette and are ideal for formal settings. So, if you have to go for a business meeting, pair your single strap monks with a suit. Brown monk strap shoes pair well with blue and grey suits, whereas two-toned red leather shoes can be paired with navy or dark brown suits. For black tie events, opt for a black suit, white shirt and black single strap monks.
For travel: Keep yourself looking suave as you travel by making monk shoes a part of your look. Tone down the formalness of your look by opting for double monk strap shoes. Pair them with jeans, shirt and a jacket to complete your look. You can also pair these shoes with slim-fitting shorts. The best part of wearing monks is that they can also be worn without socks, making them perfect for a smart casual look.
For weddings and other occasions: Keep yourself looking dapper with a pair of double monk strap shoes. Pair them with an Oxford shirt and neutral chinos or trousers for an elegant look. You could add a waistcoat or blazer for added flair. Leather monk shoes are an especially good choice as they are sure to withstand all the exertion that comes with celebrating. Don’t forget to accessorise with a pocket square, sunglasses or even jewellery.
For a date: First impressions matter, so keep yourself looking elegant and well-groomed by pairing leather monk shoes with jeans and a linen shirt. You can also pair brown monk strap shoes with a black polo neck t-shirt and grey chinos. On colder days, wear a blazer or jacket to keep yourself warm while looking fashionable.
WILL WEARING MEN’S MONK SHOES HURT MY FEET?

HOW DO I CLEAN PREMIUM LEATHER MONK SHOES?
Saint G’s premium leather shoes are quite durable, but to care for them, you could start by using a soft, dry brush to dust away any dirt. Brush the outside and work your way in. Then, take a damp cloth and wipe your shoes down.
HOW DO I KNOW THAT MY MONK SHOES ARE THE PERFECT FIT FOR ME?
Ensure that when you slip your feet into a pair of monks, the shoe fits tight and snug around the arch of your leg. Make sure to follow Saint G’s detailed size guide before making your purchase.
