Allen Edmonds Mora
The Tradest double monk on the Tradest last by, arguably, the Tradest shoemaker. While the double monk set tends to gravitate towards the British and Italian juggernauts lest we not forget the discontinued beauty that was/is the Allen Edmonds Mora. The appeal of the Mora lies in its hybrid of attributes - a wholly European style by a wholly American company. Unlike the sleeker toeboxes found on most double monks the Mora's natural shape creates a wonderful juxtaposition of both old and new worlds. The results of which, as you can see below, are quite astounding. Why Allen Edmonds refuses to re-release this badboy is beyond me and thus the Mora is relegated to eBay, forum sales and thrift stores around the country. The Allen Edmonds Mora - a sartorial unicorn in the truest sense of the word.
