    Affordable Monk Straps

    Has anyone come across any Double Monk Straps (brown) for less than 100. ASOS do some, which I bought but the toe's rather clunky and the quality is questionable.

    49.99 for some in Zara sale:



    The below are also Zara and 49.99 in the sale again.





    These are the only ones I can find as I'm after a pair myself to be honest.

    The second pair are probably a bit better than the first (IMO).

    Aldo used to do a really really nice pair that went down in the sale months ago to a stupidly low price - but I had no money at the time and when I did they were gone. Kicked myself ever since.

    Shame they're black, otherwise I'd happily dish out 50 for them.

    Kind of wish I'd bought those Tan ones those few months back!

    Any other takers?

    Have you tried Jones?

    I saw a decent looking pair of tan double monks in the sale when I went in to my local one yesterday. They have a pair on t'internet for just under 100 (Jones Bootmaker shoe store: Designer inspired footwear. Ladies & Men's shoes, courts, pumps, sandals, boots. Timberland, Rockport, Merrell, Gabor. Stylish leather handbags, purses & wallets.) but they don't look quite as nice.

    Good shout, although I just spent all my money on a Reiss blazer today. Damn. They're rather lovely though.

    The Zara ones look nice, but I bet they don't look or feel as good close up. For another 50 you could get some Meermin monkstraps. I absolutely love mine!

    I preferred the older Zara ones. Those are screaming for a toe-cap.

    I must admit, I don't like the shape of these as much as the old ones. Maybe I'll just starve myself for a month and get the meermins.

    To pose another question on this subject: are double monk straps going to last or are they a short term fad and no one will be wearing them in 12 months?

    Surely, they can only be deemed an investment piece if they are something that can be considered a staple item and worn over the years?

    The reason I ask is that I'm also considering purchasing some but can't quite decide whether to purchase some cheaper ones on the basis that they may be wearable for a year or so or invest in a good pair on the basis that they wont date?
