I was first introduced to the Monarch thanks in part to @teammonarch – the popular Instagram page dedicated to the king of all dad shoes. Intrigued by the page back in 2014, and soon becoming a father myself, I decided to stop by my local Famous Footwear store and give the Monarchs a try. The shoe boasts a full-length Air Sole unit, and comes in both a traditional size D width and 4E for a roomier fit. The price tag was easy on the wallet as well: only $64.99 (and usually on sale for $59.99 or even $54.99). There were safe colorways: all black, white/midnight navy, and white/black. The Monarch was comfortable. I could feel that full-length Air, like pillows for my feet. I could walk my dog, take my daughter to the park, or run out to the grocery store in these. I was hooked. And I wasn’t the only one, apparently.
