It’s been around for quite a while. The ‘Brogue’ originates from Scotland and Ireland and. the decorative perforations within today’s Brogues evolved from when these holes had a much more practical purpose of allowing water to drain from the shoes when walking across wet bogs!
The word ‘Brogue’ comes from its Gaelic heritage, bròg meaning shoe. Originating from early twentieth century to describe a form of outdoor shoe. Traditionally worn only by men and not considered then to be a shoe that you would think of wearing for any formal occasion.
Today the Brogue is continually a popular choice and more recently becoming bolder with the use of different colours and materials. Brogues continue to be used for many occasions including business, casual and fashion, proving that this ever popular versatile style is able to flatter and compliment most outfits and occasions!
So if you are looking for a classic style with a vintage heritage feel, brogues are just the shoe for you!
