With a long history dating back to 1866, Carmina shoemaker set out with a goal upon their brand rebirth in 1996: create the best hand-crafted shoes with traditional methods to compete with the best English and American shoemakers. With a construction process that has over 190 steps performed by skilled craftsmen, Carmina does not sacrifice on quality, including using a Goodyear Welted stitch. Carmina can proudly say they have found success despite overcoming many challenges and create shoes with excellence and honesty.
When building a shoe wardrobe, a monk strap may be one of those "staple" shoes. Made for us by our friends at Carmina in Spain, their take on the classic monk strap is one that is built to be versatile, comfortable and the workhorse of your dress shoe closet. The all calfskin upper with single monk strap buckle and plain toe are characteristics that make a shoe the perfect balance of dressy when it needs to be and easy going & smart when it is paired with jeans and a sport coat. In addition, black calfskin hits the mark when it comes to making an easy decision to be your "go-to" for your most formal events. Even a tuxedo if you dare! Buckle them up with your navy suit to medium grey trousers and blazer right down to jeans, sport coat and open collar shirt. Carmina's Monk Strap goes perfectly in the office and across the street to date night.
