A double monk shoe

A monk strap (or monk shoe) is a style of dress shoes with no lacing, instead secured on the feet by one or mutiple buckles and straps. 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.
