The brogue has truly come a long way. After originating as the footwear of the rural populations of Ireland and Scotland, it became the preferred hunting shoe of British nobility. Nobles soon started wearing brogues during their leisure time, but the opulent perforation patterning remained primarily reserved for men. In the course of the 20th century, the elegant ornamentation conquered the world of women’s shoes as well, and soon spread from there throughout the rest of the world. Ever since, the ‘Scottish perforation’ along the edges of the shaft has served as the namesake of this fascinating shoe model and constitutes its characteristic form to this day.
The supreme discipline of shoe manufacturing. In an elaborate process, the upper and outsole are sewn together using a thin strip of leather. This makes the shoes extremely stable, durable, dimensionally stable and extremely easy to repair.
Probably the most elegant men's shoe model in the world. Provided with the characteristic closed lacing, the Oxford is the shoe classic for the upscale occasion.
