Mens lace up shoes: three flawless options

Monk strap Franceschetti: the shoe with buckle

Monk strap: classic but casual style shoe at the same time
The monk strap is mostly known as the shoe with the buckle. But what is it? It’s essentially a derby, not closed by laces but through a side band which ends with a buckle. The monk strap wraps the instep, dresses it and makes it elegant. Then it’s the buckle that gives it an authoritative touch … almost noble. It’s a very charming model: it was the shoe of the nobles between 1600 and 1800, but also the one of the Three Musketeers and that of the Pirates. Its origins seem to be, however, very modest, because it derives from the monks’ sandals laced on one side.
Franceschetti proposes different monk strap models, which go from the smooth leather versions to the brogued ones. The shoe with buckle has the advantage that there aren’t laces which can break. You should wear it with a straight and not too long pant, otherwise the buckle may get caught with the hem.

Loafers Franceschetti: refined shoes without laces

Loafers: comfortable and sylish shoes
The term loafers is usually replaced, sometimes inappropriately, by the word moccasin. Loafers are shoes without laces, easy to get in and out, in which the vamp comes up to the instep girth to favor the keeping while walking. Entered the fashion world in England in the late nineteenth century as a distinctive feature of the dandy, it is often identified with the moccasin, as the shoe that you slip on.
Loafers and moccassins. Moccasins are different from loafers. They are characterized by two stitchings, one on the heel and the other on the upper part of the foot (used to join the apron to the rest of the structure of the shoe). This shoe model consists of a single piece of leather that from under the foot comes up to the hips, banding it completely.
