Monk FactsThe Montpellier is a full strap penny loafer with a near round toe. This is a classic summer shoe, being very easy, neat and comfortable, plus it looks superb without socks. The characteristic slit strap design originated in the 1930s as a stylistic twist on the standard loafer; many people would store a penny in the slit in case they needed to make an emergency phone call. The Montpellier is crafted on Edward Green’s 184 last, which is their slim, round-toed loafer design. It is very versatile and, although it is perfect for summer, its comfort makes it irresistible for year-round wear. Established in a small Northampton factory in 1890, Edward Green has gained a deserved reputation for ‘making the finest shoes in England for the discerning few’. Edward Green’s shoes are made with the finest calfskin to the highest standards of workmanship. Each pair takes several weeks to create and many master craftsmen are involved.
