Model [ DR 1048M231]Dr.Martens COBDEN SMOOTH SHOES BLACK DR1065The monk strap shoe was originally designed for - yep - European monks, as a dressier, more durable sandal alternative. And here's the thing: they don't just look good with robes, but jeans. And suits. And shorts. That said, the Cobden Monk Strap Shoe serves up a modern take on a classic silhouette, with buckle fastening, an iconic Dr. Martens air-cushioned sole, all made with the durable-yet-shiny Doc Polished Smooth leather.
