Product Description

Burgundy Oxford Brogue

This burgundy oxford brogue has a really traditional look but the colour just adds a little something different. So did you know that the brogue shoe was invented to try and help people working in boggy wetlands to keep their feet dry. Holes were put in to drain water. So what began as a practical idea for the peasantry became a decorative one once the gentry began to wear these shoes. Of course, they were sturdier now and better made but to make them practical still, they were covered with candle wax to make them more waterproof. Brown brogues were originally more common just to cement the informality but over time, black became acceptable as a more formal type of shoe to wear.

Here is a really good blog called All About Shoes giving a concise detailed history of the brogue.

Looking After Formal Shoes

We would recommend inserting unfinished cedar shoe trees into your shoes as it helps to maintain the shoe well. The absorption of moisture is beneficial in terms of bad smells. Spray them with a protector and give them a polish now and again. You will find they last longer the more upkeep you put in. It will leave you looking good for longer!
