There’s nothing like a splash of asymmetry to liven up a shoe. For instance…

This washed-suede monk shoe comes from a N.D.C., a Belgian duo specializing in pre-treated brogues. We like the material well enough, but the asymmetrical buckle is what pushes this one over the top. A little continental flair like that can be enough to push an outfit into more memorable territory. As long as you’re willing to ditch the oxfords for a day or two, that is.
