Has always been primarily a men’s shoe model heated tempers. While the supporters appreciate its charming extravagance, the critics interfere with his supposed dominance – none other than the famous monk trap is at the Centre of the debate. The gentleman blog does away with the resentment of the traditional Schnallenschuh, and explains why this rightly claims its place among the classic men’s shoes.
Footwear for the modern gentleman
A gentleman understands the importance of good sitting and manicured men’s shoes. As the basis of a stylish shoe wardrobe a black Captoe recommended Oxford specifically as elegant all-rounder and a dynamic Full Brogue in dark brown for the modern dress code. However, it must be not only laced in terms of classic men’s shoes. As a welcome change from the formal positioned many men access already also on weekdays to the monk trap, known as monk. Nothing is formally against its use anywhere, where there is a less strict dress code.
Basically, the monk trap that reminds the classic Derby, a shoe with the characteristic open lacing. As well as the popular lace-ups, the monk also has a unverziertes front, as well as two side panels sewn-on. However, the eponymous belt lock that runs laterally over the shaft and traditionally joins a buckle is characteristic of the Schnallenschuh. Two buckles, adorn the monk is to a double monk trap.
The advantage: the Schnallenschuh offers considerably more comfort than, for example, an Oxford shoe especially gentlemen with a strong tension listed on HISTORYAAH. Actually the buckle allows its wearer to adjust the distance – the pressure is therefore evenly on the base. Also eliminates the sometimes annoying opening the laces, which can become loose at the wrong moment or even tear. Loosely translated, the term means”monk trap «in addition as much as» monk strap «.» No wonder, then, that in the debate on the Schnallenschuh always the traditional footwear of the monks mingles. But really are the roots of the special Halbschuhs to orbit of the friars?

The sandals with buckles by monks from the Alps in the 15th century as the ancestors of the present-day monk traps need to keep here. But even in the shoe version registered later under the cowl was the leather belt while through a lateral incision of the front sheet, however resulted in a much later seated buckle closure. In contrast to the modern monk trap, the front was also divided.
Most likely, the monk trap is rather a modernisation of the buckle-ups from the 17th century. Between 1670 and 1680, just those strap replaced the previously popular grinding on the footwear and was accompanied in courtly circles even of precious stones and diamonds. At the feet of the Musketeers finally concluded the buckle to an impressive overall size, covert the imposing buckle at the French infantry sometimes even the entire shoe. Compared to today’s models are downright modest.
Companion for the fashionably elegant dress code
Undoubtedly, the monk trap is an absolute eye-catcher. Whether the model is elegant or sporty extravagant shows, however, fashionable, depends first and foremost on the material, the color, and the degree of ornamentation. In less conservative industries, a unverzierter monk in black smooth leather easily meets the requirements of the traditional dress code and makes a fabulous figure mainly to a grey or charcoal gray suit. The monk trap from the classic lace-up shoe is hidden under a wide-cut pant leg to distinguish also remains the buckle.

For use in the Office the other clothes should practice however reluctant to compete not in competition with the footwear. The modern interpretation of the monks from velvety soft suede suited, however, to the denim or Chino exudes a stylish casualness of the monk in the leisure – in combination with lightweight flannel fabrics then.
