Take it from us - beyond its undisputed beauty, there’s far more to the Balearic archipelago than meets the eye. You’ve probably heard of the many heavenly perks the region has to offer; crystal waters, lush green hills, tanned women and white sand between your toes. But one well-kept secret you probably haven’t heard about is the next best thing to sandy feet - a great pair of shoes.
Monge is based in Mallorca, where the brand unveils the island’s importance as a shoemaking hub. In fact, Mallorca boasts a legacy in footwear design and leather work that dates back to the middle ages; towns like Inca were epicentres of artisanal work from as early as the 15th century. Specialized in designer men’s footwear, Monge is home to a beautiful collection that merges contemporary design and traditional manufacture seamlessly.
Each pair of shoes is Made-to-Order, meaning that a skilled artisan spends several days crafting your very unique pair of shoes from scratch. Every detail, from the precise mould-shaping to the premium stitching, is controlled by master craftsmen who oversee that each piece is worthy of the island’s savoir faire. The magical setting is the source from which Monge’s founder Pedro gathers inspiration:
Made to match the island’s charming, sunkissed lifestyle, Monge’s shoes are conceived to add a little spring to your step- wherever you may take them. Conceived to celebrate individual style rather than contemporary trends, each model boasts a strong personality and a timeless feel. Beautiful, vibrant colours marry luxurious textures to create a product as resilient as it is refined. Be it a stroll across the coast or a mundane day at work, a fine pair of shoes is the pièce de résistance to complete your look.
