We try and avoid the cliches, we really do. But sometimes they’re just too gosh darned suitable for the situation. Take these monk-strapped desert boots for instance. On a normal (albeit slightly lazy) day, we’d call this a classic with twist. And that’s what we’re gonna it today. Sometimes you can’t improve on a cliche. But what you can improve on is a shoe style. Desert boots are now a staple and look to stay that way for a while yet – so any twist on the formula is much appreciated. Monk straps have a tendency to age the wearer by 20 years, so it’s nice to see it applied on a more casual shoe. (My Wardrobe)
