2016 wish list: black double monks

sidmonksblack1

it’s been a minute since i’ve talked about double monks.  that doesn’t mean i’m not wearing them once or twice a week.  i have a pair of brown ones, but i think it’s time to go to the dark side (sorry couldn’t resist a star wars reference).  i wear a suit to work every day, so i need to continue to add to my shoe arsenal.  my target is another pair of monks from sid mashburn.  they don’t get any better looking than these.

after much consideration

“we’re really doing it though, aren’t we buddy?” (for reference see here).  after much consideration and help from a few friends, i settled on a pair of allen admonds moras.  i originally ordered the brown grain calf, but changed my mind after giving the chili burnished calf another look (thanks jrs).  i went with the brown standard welt as opposed to the natural standard, because i didn’t want it to be too light.  allen edmonds customer service was extremely helpful when i requested an order change (a real person actually picked up the phone).  now the waiting game begins.  i’ll do a follow up post when they arrive in 6 weeks.

out with the old

i realize i talk a lot of shoes on here.  no apologies.  they’re easy for me write about because they’re one of the things i update regularly.  with that said, i’ve been eyeing these ronnie fieg limited gray desert boots since december.  my old brown beeswax desert boots are a couple of months away from a hole in the sole, so it was time for an update.  the gray boots came on friday.  they’re incredible.  if you’ve got some extra funds and need a new pair of dbs, try the gray.  available exclusively at david z.
