hand welted shoes


Moccasin made of vintage Pebody of Northampton Box Calf.

Note that all the skins are halves: this is to make it easier to hand curry/board the hides.

We are immensely proud here at Double Monk to announce our very first trunk show with the illustrious Austrian shoemaker Saint Crispin’s.

Saint Crispin’s are hand welted shoes and represent both the very highest quality and value in luxury shoes.

The owner of Saint Crispin’s, Mr Phillip Car, will be flying out to consult with all our trunk show customers in Melbourne and Sydney. Mr Car will be able to offer our trunk show customers the unique advantage of Saint Crispin’s famous last-adjustment service. This service enables the customer to be advised on adjustment to Saint Crispin’s existing model lasts, allowing an optimal fit. This service is only available at Saint Crispin’s trunk shows. 

We are now taking appointments for our two days in Melbourne and our two days in Sydney.

Standard models are $1895 including GST.
