Split-toe monks: love, hate, indifferent? - Page 2

post #16 of 49
Fan of Monks, not Fan of Split Toes.

Generally I do not like split toes, monk or otherwise.
This pair is an exception:

I never knew split-toe monks ever existed. Now that I know, I'm rather indifferent. There are about 4 dozen styles of shoes I would purchase first.

I don't like them. And I have them. Go figure. I have had AEs like that for few years and put them on once or twice a year. It took me a while to figure I don't like them.

I feel like Nicholas Taleb - I know something that no-one else does. That's great news.

Yes, and split-toe double monks also exist.

I am definitely a fan. ^^These are stunning!
I have one pair of split toe monks by To Boot New York that I enjoy and receive numerous compliments on. Would definitely buy a pair of those Barrett's.

I very much like all of the shoes posted in this thread. Apart form Monty's. Of course, the reason for that is that I don't like super extended toes in general. They make my feet look disproportionate to my body, or they make me look like I'm wearing elf shoes. Hell, the classic somewhat pointy florsheims are a stretch for me.

I like 'em.

They are unusual as evidenced by this thread most of you wouldn't want to own a pair. I have a pair of Santoni for Dunhill (will try to post pics) that I'm very pleased with.

Guess I'll go against the grain on this one: I like the first pair posted by the OP. But as was said earlier, they may be good to look at, but not sure I could wear them.

Generally I'm not keen - I like split-toe derbies and plain monks, but those are an exception - they look good.

Not a fan of any type of split toe. I guess it comes down to personal style

Split toe just takes away from the flow of the shoe.

I dislike split-toes in general and see no reason to make an exception for monkstrap variations thereof.
