Where in NYC to buy Double Monk Straps for <$500?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Going to NYC tomorrow for some festivities and I want to pick up a pair of double monks. Looking to spend less than $500.

Any suggestions for shoe shops to hit up?

The sale at Barney's, was a lot to choose from in that price range last I was there.

C&J Lowndes but you would be better off buying from the UK.

AE Neumora on the "lower" end
CJ Lowdnes on the higher end
Leffot and Barneys might have some options too

Did not like the Neumora last or color selection at all, so pass on those.

Just checked out Leffot and this is just what I was looking for! Seems like they only stock high-end brands though...

Alfred Sargent Ramsey



Sadly, at $740, these are a bit steep... ugh. frown.gif

Bodileys has that shoe in a darker brown color for ~$525 shipped CONUS

Ask them to ship with Royal Mail. I skated by customs, no problem on a couple pairs of CJ's from Bodileys

Thanks for the link.

I'm a bit confused, though, as Leffot labels them as the Oak Antique color, which is how your link labels them as well. Yet, the colors are vastly different?

A lot of British websites are showing these at 350 GBP and I even found one site at 297 GBP excl. VAT and with free shipping!

I'm going to Leffot to get my size and then will order online biggrin.gif

Thank you jrd I think I'm in love with these shoes and I've been looking FOREVER for a pair of double monks I like.

Did you try the C&J shop? They are having a sale on discontinued models

I will pay them a visit. Do you know which models they're discontinuing by chance?

Also, just found out Leffot will be closed during the entirety of my stay... now I'm fucked.

At least he didn't get screwed, you weren't going to buy anything from them. You wanted to get sized and buy elsewhere.

You say that as if I'm making an irrational decision.

^ Thanks for the suggestion. Not a fan of that last at all, unfortunately.

In store. They are discontinued models that got shipped over from England. The sale started December 26.
