I remember my first pair of Brogues,

I purchased them when they weren’t in fashion and I got them in the sale for about £4.00 as no one seemed to be buying them.

The quality of my £4.00 Brogues isn’t amazing and I want to find the perfect pair of Brogues.

What makes a Brogue Desirable

There are several delicious  reasons that make the Brogue such an appealing shoe of choice.

  • Flat easier to wear shoe
  • Comfortable
  • Goes with anything skirts to trousers
  • Unisex shoe
  • Take on masculine ‘Dandy’ wear
  • An all season shoe

What Brogue style suits you?

Who knew there were different style of brogues, its seems confusing but really there all made from the same shoe just patterns are variable.

Full brogues (Wing-tips) Fig1. –  A pointed toe cap with a wing like shape. Decorated with a smaller perforated platform.

Semi brogues Fig2. – The toe cap has an perforated design or pattern that can either run along the toe cap, or around the top cap. These are the more casual version of an Oxford.

Quarter brogues Fig3. – The toe cap doesn’t have any detail what so ever. We know these as an Oxford brogue.
