The L6608 Holborn is a classic black cap-toe double monk strap shoe. Its double buckle and the subtle seam above the instep characterizes them as a type of shoe for men with a strong personality. This shoe has been handcrafted in fine cowhide leather, chrome tanned and dyed in black. Both the insole and the outsole are made of leather, making them very breathable and comfortable shoes.
With some reminiscences of the Derby style footwear, the L6608 Holborn is a classic shoe with a unique touch that differentiates them from other styles such as Oxford shoes. That formal touch turns them into a very versatile shoe that is able to adapt to many environments, from business offices to more chilled occasions.
Their special double monk design became popular in the early 20th century, being inspired by European buckle shoes from the 17th century.

Next, apply our Lottusse moisturising cream in circles with a cotton cloth. Allow the leather to absorb the cream for at least 30 minutes. Finally, brush the surface to remove any excess cream and polish.
