Super-Lightweight Camouflage Suede Monk Shoes




It is nigh on impossible to find shoes that are truly comfortable when the mercury rises. Fortunately, these super-lightweight, flexible, breathable summer monk shoes from Santoni are the exception which proves the rule.

The story

Intended to be the ultimate in lightweight summer footwear, these monk shoes have been created in the highest tradition of Italian shoemaking, as befits Santoni – with ultra-flexible blake stitched soles and gorgeously soft calf-suede uppers, printed with a subtle blue tonal camouflage pattern.

The double monk shoe is an icon of Santoni’s – a design that the house has honed and perfected since its inception. Each shoe is roomy, yet perfectly poised - perfect for warmer weather. Despite its double-buckle closure the shoe fits and feels more like a suede slipper. With its slim, low profile sole and heel, the shoe transitions effortlessly from formal to casual contexts, remaining soft, comfortable and super-lightweight the whole day through. The shoes' sophisticated blue camouflage pattern is exclusive to The Rake, and this is first camouflage-printed suede shoe that Santoni has ever created.

The shoes are numbered with The Rake’s signature silver foiling, and each pair is one of only 20 pairs available. Each pair will be supplied in a unique Santoni for The Rake shoebox, also finished with our silver foiling.
