A shoe that can boost your look with some classic charm, the brogue is a timeless item of men’s fashion. Not only is this shoe style smart and fashionable, but it also adds some interest and excitement to your outfit thanks to their unique perforations.
The characteristic row of holes and perforations create a shoe that can be worn for both smart and casual outings. That being said, you don’t want to over complicate your outfit when styling brogues. Let the iconic broguing pattern that runs on the edges of the shoe do the talking.
So lets jump into it! Here are our top 5 brogues so far this year…
1. Fernando Smooth Black
The first shoe on our list is the classy Fernando men’s leather brogue. Featuring soft leather uppers and genuine leather soles, these brogues don’t just look the part, but feel just as good too. They are also lightweight and flexible too! Black is always the most formal option when it comes to brogues, but this doesn’t mean you can’t add a spin to it by wearing a patterned shirt or interesting tie.
2. Tucano Suede Truffle
Next up is the highly popular and comfortable Tucano – and we’re going with Suede Truffle. What really sets this brogue apart is its distinctive stitching (waxed thread for waterproofing) and contrasting England Rubber Gel sole. The Tucano suede brogues can also be worn with pretty much anything, which is why it’s in our top 5.
3. Pilar Smooth Burgundy Black
If you’re looking for for a brogue full of confidence and charm, this is it! The Pilar brogue in smooth burgundy and black is characterised by “closed lacing”, a distinctive two-toned leather finish and contrasting hand-stitched welt. And it’s not just a beauty on the outside. Inside, soft natural leathers and cushioned sheepskin lining keep your feet cushioned all day long.
4. Manaus Black
The Manaus Black brogue works for times when you need to look sharp. Add a pair of black tailored trousers and you’ll achieve ultimate sophistication. This smart-casual lace up also features padded ankle supports and a soft sheepskin lining, providing style and comfort in equal measure.
5. Charles Smooth Bronze
And last, but certainly not least, we have gone with the Charles men’s leather brogue in bronze. This brogue will help you polish off loads of your looks. Pair these with formal trousers, dark denim, chinos, blazers and shirts – the list goes on. Oh, and just like our other selections they’re big on comfort.
Brogues add character to every gentleman’s shoe rack – so make sure you’re laced up and ready to go!
