    Nice shoes but the triple buckles are OTT for my liking...

    I would, however, disagree with this statement. You can't get bespoke shoes for even close to that amount.

    Begin the extended inappropriate metaphor threakthon?

    Monk shoes are a bit like tits.

    Natural tits are like single monks. Lovely, and differentiated in loveliness by their shape and details.

    Good fake tits are like double monks. They have a bit extra that draws attention and makes them special.

    Triple monks are like bad fake tits. Clearly unnatural and trying a tad too hard to attract attention. (And are they goodyear welted?)
