Opinions?

Leaning towards brown.


They look nice but you can get much better quality for that kind of money.

I can't seem to find any other double monks that look like these. Can you help with leads? Nothing with a cap toe please.

Some To Boot shoes are made by Peluso....which is good for that kind of money.
I would have to see the soles to tell if they were Peluso or not.

The Moras have a different shaped toe, plus the Mora is a cap toe shoe. See below.

IMO it is an attractive shoe. I have several pairs of double monks and they always get the most compliments from men and women. I have never owned a pair of To Boot shoes so I can't speak to their quality.

I have a pair of TB loafers and I like them a lot. Superb fit on me.

Your triple-monks are gorgeous.

Those are quite nice.

How about the C&J lowndes from Plal for cheaper instead?

Looking at that pic, they do look similar to a pair of captoe Peluso double monks couple of years ago but I'm not 100% sure. OP could look for Pelusos like these too, Yoox usually has a load of them for sale.

Those look great. The only To Boot I have seen in the last few years I would wear.
