The Mora double monk strap by Allen Edmonds has become something of legend in the world of men's style. After being introduced back in 2006, the shoe mysteriously disappeared, forcing savvy guys to hunt it down on eBay and in thrift stores. But now, thanks to countless customer pleas and emails, Allen Edmonds is reintroducing the Mora monk strap. And because so many of the requests specified various leathers and finishes, the shoe is now part of the company's popular custom program. Available in sizes 6 to 16 (with widths from B to EEE), the Mora can be cut from 14 different leathers with your choice of stitching and soles. Hand sewn in Port Washington, Wisconsin—a process that involves more than 200 individual steps—the shoes are Goodyear welted and feature a natural toe box and substantial sole. It's a decidedly American take on a traditionally slimmer, European shoe. There is one drawback: The made to order shoes will take about six to eight weeks to arrive.
