If you haven’t been living under a digital rock these past twelve months, you’ve probably seen a pair of double monks or "dubs," as the kids call them, featured in roughly every major style publication, blog tangentially related to menswear and on the feet of street style's elite. The double monk strap shoe has risen to the top of the ranks as one of the most sought after pieces of footwear in a man’s wardrobe, and with good reason. They’re surprisingly versatile and can be worn with just about anything from suits, jeans, clown suits, etc. The best part of all this, especially for you, is that we’ve found a very affordable and reputable shoemaker in Spain who sells them at a fraction of what most high-end labels charge. Meermin, founded in 2001, specializes in quality Goodyear welted shoes at reasonable prices, aka game over. At just over $200 they’re a wise investment when you don’t have a kidney to spare for great looking shoes. $200. Seriously. Go crazy.
