The Brogue shoe originated in Ireland, traditionally as outdoor or country walking footwear. It was made of untanned hide with perforations, allowing water to drain when walking on wet ground.
With their perforated and serrated designs, Brogues are now appropriate stylish business and evening wear too. Brogues are commonly found in one of four toe cap styles full or “wingtip”, semi-, quarter and long wing and four closure styles Oxford, Derby, Ghillie, and Monk.
- The CIZMAR Classic Wingtip Brogues are made in top quality sturdy leather with the characteristic design of decorative holes (or “broguing”) and serration along the pieces’ edges.
- The CIZMAR Black Army Brogues are in the typical form of sturdy leather shoes with classic Brogue piercings and serrations. The broad toe is the discerning feature here. It adds the military rugged feel to the formal wear. The heavy TPR sole adds to the look.
