Men's monk shoes

Ripon Brown Double Monk Shoes

£185.00 £110.00

The monk straps shoe is an rare example of a name that makes sense. Monk shoes were genuinely invented by monks, who needed more foot protection than their sandals provided. The result iss a shoe which uses the buckle and straps of a sandal instead of lacing.

The Ripon is named after the historic Ripon Cathedral, in a nod to the style’s religious origins. This double monk men’s shoe is available in black or brown leather, and the Blake Stitched construction of this formal shoe means the leather sole is flexible and easily replaced once passed its best.

The chrome buckles and sleek, unassuming styling of Ripon make this an excellent dress shoe for formal occasions, although this classic double monk can equally be paired with a smart pair of jeans.

Leather Shoes

Leather shoes need regular cleaning and care with wax polishes or shoe cream. Select the closest colour to your shoe – if in doubt use a natural shade. Before cleaning ensure that the shoes are dry and remove all surface dirt and dust with a damp cloth. Antiqued finishes should be handled carefully.

Suede and Nubuck Shoes

Due to the fine nap of these leathers, extra care should be taken when cleaning. Gentle use of a Suede brush with a Nubuck / Suede cleaner will remove most stains. If your shoes get wet, let them dry naturally, and then brush them gently with a Suede brush. Please note – Nubuck and Suede leather cannot be guaranteed as entirely colourfast and therefore some loss of colour may occur on very rare occasions.

Leather soles

Leather soles are natural products which offer a breathable, flexible sole. Because of its porous nature, leather sole will let in water, therefore we do not recommend excessive use in wet conditions. After a period of time the sole will wear even under normal conditions, making it necessary for the sole to be repaired.

Shoe Repairs

All shoe repairs no matter what the cause should be carried out by a professional shoe repairer or cobbler. Poor shoe repairs could result in a dangerous pair of shoes and could increase the risk of slips, trips and falls. Please note – any home repairs will also invalidate your manufacturers guarantee.


An elegant formal yet modern style of footwear these monk shoes in a rich chestnut brown leather will complement navy and will stand out against blue tones to make a smart statement.
