    It is your obligation to post thorough (well focused) pics of the shoes, once they arrive. Congrats...

    Congrats. That said, I just don't get the monk strap obsession.

    Me neither. Nor do I ever see anybody wearing them.

    On the CTA
    

    There's one guy in my building who does, and I think they're something only a select few can pull off.

    They're basically just dandy loafers with straps, but I'm a fan. Give it some time, you might start to like them too...

    I used to wear monk straps quite regularly about 10 years ago. Then I got away from it. I just tried on a pair of monk straps this week from that other American bootmaker. Didn't like the fit, otherwise I would have kept them.

    I don't really like the look of single monks. But double....whole new ballgame.

    These are on my shopping list in suede and red leather, providing I can find a pair that fit.

    Check the Boston fit when you get the shoes, some people have trouble with the slender toe box. Good haul though, enjoy your shoes :happy:

    I was more concerned with it being a monk strap, not having enough support and not being able to lace them up tighter. I'm a 9.5D in 5th Aves. Worst case is I exchange for a 9.

    Thanks for your input. I really nope those McNeils fit well. They are really hot.

    There should be 3 notches on each strap, should help adjust the fit.
