This legendary Double Monk by Allen Edmonds is not only one of the most beautiful shoes ever made but we think it is the most versatile dress shoe money can buy.
This shoe uses the original last from the shoes introduction back in 2009 and cannot be purchased new anywhere except Ball and Buck. We highlight "new" because these shoes are in such demand that they hold their value better than gold bullion and are commonly found on eBay or on the racks of RRL with a steep price tag.
Our Advice: Get a pair and wear the hell out of them: they look better the more beat up they are. Also, don't make the mistake of only wearing these with a suit. They are just as comfortable being paired with jeans, chinos, or even shorts if you're feeling a little ballsy.

- From Our Friends at Valet Mag:
The Mora Double Monk Strap by Allen Edmonds has become something of legend in the world of men's style. After being introduced back in 2006, the shoe mysteriously disappeared, forcing savvy guys to hunt it down on eBay and in thrift stores. Hand sewn in Port Washington, Wisconsin a process that involves more than 200 individual steps the shoes are Goodyear welted and feature a natural toe box and substantial sole. It's a decidedly American take on a traditionally slimmer, European shoe. Valet.
