Shoes with buckles are the latest addition to formal men's shoes. Also called monk strap shoes, as their fastening is reminiscent of sandals worn by monks. This type of shoe adjusts easily to the foot thanks to the piece above the vamp and fastens comfortably with the buckle, which in many cases is adjustable. They go best with trousers that show off this distinctive detail rather than looking like a completely plain shoe. Within the selection of buckled shoes from brands such as Crockett & Jones, Church's and Santoni, there are different varieties such as those with double buckle, fringed at the front or Prussian stitching.
