En vogue, in Brogues……….

Ah, the humble Brogue: A word derived from the Gaelic bróg (Irish), bròg (Scottish) “shoe”, is a style of low-heeled shoe or boot traditionally characterised by multiple-piece, sturdy leather uppers with decorative perforations (Why, thanks, wiki)

Just the other week, I shared with you my fashion dilemma for a pending wedding ceremony. Feeling a certain pressure to conform to the traditional ‘wedding guest uniform’ of obligatory high heels, I raised the question: Could I wear flat shoes to a wedding? & My conclusion: without a shadow of a doubt, YES!

Since the wedding took place in a barn out in the countryside, flats were a no-brainer. & Lets not forget their dancability ‘til the stroke of midnight’ comfort factor!

I decided upon a slightly androgynous look, & the leather detail on these Clarks Cut-out Brogues caught my eye. I’m not really one to follow ‘trends’ instead I select items for their longevity & ‘style’ potential.
