My daughter is now in a school where school uniform policies are strict ( hence boring and unfair but that is another problem). Anyway shoes have to be black with no visible branding. Which leaves with a rather limited choice (she is a no girly girl so forget the mary janes): clarks are acceptable ( in spite of showing the make on the side so maybe something to stir over here); Dr Martens are great but a bit heavy all day long and anyway she has some cherry ones for the week-end so wanted a change and they are not cheap; Monkey boots were a good option; after all they are more stylish than the horrible plasticky school shoes, and more resistant (her school shoes lasted 1 month and a half; we have had the monkey boots for a couple of month and no serious sign of deterioration yet in spite of playing football and other super-hero. So reasonably priced for a tough good quality stylish shoe. On the down side they are a bit rigid but there have been no complaints. Got my old pair out!
Treated myself to a pair of these classic boots recently and am very happy with the purchase My friends and I used to wear them back in the 70's. Well punk rock! These are the original monkey boots unlike the ones sold by some vendors, especially in the States, which are inferior imitations. You'll know they are the same as the old ones because they are still a bit painful to break in but well worth it to look so stylish!! I'm off for a POGO!!
Amazing service, the boots arrived the next day and are a wonderful fit, and are of great quality, the black monkey boots look much better in person than in the photograph, I would reccomend these to anybody!!!
