Although these double monkstrap shoes by Mezlan are on sale via Gilt, I am of the firm belief that they are very appropriate for summer. They aren't made from a rugged suede which would add bulk and thus negate their use during the hot seasons. Instead they are made from a brushed suede which makes them conducive for wear during summer. I'd venture to say that even sockless they would definitely work considering their slim and narrow design, even though I'm not a fan of going sockless with dress shoes. But these are just perfect for summer, with a linen or cotton suit, silk knit tie and a light weight shirt. It's also undeniable that with jeans, shorts, chinos and whatever else, these shoes are worth their money and go above and beyond the call of duty in the style stakes.
And for good measure the two tone suede leather for the looks, longevity and a statement.
