Munro Cheryl is an old Munro style brought back by popular demand on a dressier sole. This oblique toe slip-on with it’s side elastic vamp allows easy entry for high insteps. This flat is great for trave and work. Munro Cheryl is made from kid leathers, with steel shanks riveted to the insole boards to provide support while walking, removable footbeds and natural latex rubber outsoles.
Munro Cheryl is available at Bonaventure in Black Kid, Mocha/Dusty Brown and Black/Gunmetal Kid in selected sizes.
