A double monk shoe

A monk shoe is a style of shoe with no lacing, closed by a buckle and strap.

It is a moderately formal shoe: less formal than a full Oxford (American: Balmoral); but more so than an open Derby (American: Blücher).[1] In between these, it is one of the main categories of men's shoes.

It often has a cap toe, is occasionally brogued, and is popular in suede.
