Monk FactsThe Ventnor is an unlined suede penny loafer with a slim round toe. Fashioned from unlined suede, it feels soft as a slipper, making it light and cool in the summer, but also perfect to run down to the shops during the cooler months. 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 Ventnor is crafted on Edward Green’s 184 last, which is their slim, round-toed loafer design. With its unstructured style, it is best suited to more relaxed outfits: jeans and chinos or a well cut pair of shorts. 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.
