Monk straps have become very popular recently. The single monk is characterized by a single strap coming across the upper of the shoe and meeting with a buckle. A single monk strap will be very comfortable and has become a staple shoe to get some attention.
Artisan-Hand Made Patina: The technique used to achieve this artwork is known as ‘Anticatura’, which is the Italian word for antique finishing. It is a specialty of Italian and French maestro shoemakers. Entrusted to the hands of the antique finisher, the upper part of the shoe becomes a work of art. The Anticatura method is a hand dyeing procedure of leather. It takes about 8-10 hours of work per pair to create a completely unique patina with an aged effect.
