THE DOUBLE MONK-STRAP SHOES

If you invest in just one pair of formal shoes this season, make them on-trend and built to last, explains M&S.com menswear editor, Daniel Copley.

Like many men, I need my footwear to be versatile – shoes that look as good with a navy suit as they do with a rolled-up pair of jeans. This double monk-strap style from the M&S Best of British collection totally fits the bill. Made by renowned Northamptonshire-based shoemakers Joseph Cheaney & Sons, the premium calf-leather upper and oak-bark tanned sole are testament to traditional craftsmanship and styling. They look fresher and sharper than brogues, and the best part is that they’ll only get better with age.

“MONK-STRAP shoes have stepped
ahead of brogues as this season’s
biggest footwear trend.”
