Brogues Gallery

The at-one-time humble brogue — a traditional low-heeled and narrow men’s leather dress shoe that originated from Ireland and Scotland — is getting its groove back. A great option for women who want a dapper alternative to flats you can wear them with skinny jeans, legging pants and even with a skirt if you’re courageous. With so many options in stores now — two-tone oxford, suede, velvet, perforated, patent — it’s tough to pick just one style that says, “I’m fine and dandy.”
