Style Glossary: Brogues


Traditionally, brogues, often known as wingtips in the US, are low-heeled shoes made of heavy leather, originating in Scotland. They are usually laced, and sometimes the design is applied to loafers as well. They are considered men's dress shoes, but lately, it has become popular for women to wear brogue heels or boots, often with stiletto heels.

If you like this menswear-inspired trend, buy Rupert Sanderson's Donegal Lace-Up Shoe Boots With Brogue Detail ($950).

These are all the rage here in Italy. It's almost impossible to find another style of shoes! My favorite combo is a soft, black suede pair worn with thick black tights and a short sweater dress. Love it!

I have a pair almost exactly like this, but the heel is so high. Walking on the ball of your foot for too long is soooo painful!

i've definitely been getting into the men's style a bit more this season and i can't wait to see what new adaptations come along that i can check out. i never knew that these shoes were called that - but it's something to keep in my mind so i can have better conversations with people :)
