This is a variant of the plain Monk shoe that has been used for informal wear for many years. Different styles of broguing may be carried out but the wing-cap is found to be particularly suited to the long-fronted Monk style.
The shoe photographed is made of Crup or Cordovan leather, rich dark brown in colour, and has a thick crepe rubber sole. If a lighter-weight shoe is desired, microcellular rubber soling equally thick but not as heavy as crepe, can be substituted.
The shoe tree shown is specially hollowed for air-travel.
This shoe was styled by John Lobb, 47 Faubourg St. Honore, Paris
