The History of the Monk Strap shoe.
Let’s go back in time to Louis XIV (1643-1715). France was the international fashion center. Shoes were adorned with decorative buckles, a style that remained highly fashionable for the elite through the late 1700’s. By the eighteenth century, they were available for all tastes and pockets, giving birth to the modern day Monk Shoe.
