Buckle Ankle Boot
Over a decade ago, double-monk straps ruled the formal shoe space. Some say they're coming back, but now might be time for the single-monk shoes to have their moment. A single-monk boot has more duality—wear them with dark or black denim or pull them on with a natty double-breasted suit. Leave it to a Parisian company to craft something this stunning. Fursac's interpretation is made by hand from 100% calf leather and has the height of a formal Chelsea boot, finished with a simple, single strap. What's more, it's Goodyear welted, so these will literally last you a lifetime, as long as you get them resoled every ten years or so—not a horrible investment shoe if you ask me.
