Our brogues are all crafted from top quality leather with the finest traditional detailing.
Ghillies, or ghillie brogues, are a modern development of the brogue which was worn by highlanders. They were made with hide punctured with holes to let water out (as well as in) and this helped feet and footwear to dry out more quickly in the wet/damp/ boggy conditions. These shoes are laced through leather tangs and do not have the tongue which covers the bridge of the foot as in normal shoes. The high lacing helped prevent the shoe from being sucked off by mud. Though the ghillie brogue is now considered the normal style of Scottish dress footwear Our Brogues are made with the skills and crafts of old.Our supplier uses the finest leathers that they can find for durability,flexibility and,of course, smartness.They stitch the soles to the uppers and use brass nails on the heels.There are faster and easier ways to make shoes but this is the way they find the best.
