What is a brogue?
Dress shoes can cover an array of popular footwear styles, including loafers (like our FAYE), derbies, and ladies brogues, and are often paired with smart-casual outfits as work shoes. Leather is a quality material that is frequently used when creating these styles, adding a luxe element to their polished aesthetic. To separate these styles, a brogue is characterised by its framework with ornamental and perforated patterns.
OLiViA and AMELiA come under our unique derbies and brogues for women, with features such as feminine, almond-shaped toes, laser-cut detailing, expertly weighted heels counters, and an intuitive, layered system of cushioned support. Custom fitting options are also a key feature of these pairs, as are their revolutionary soft midsoles and durable rubber treads. They are a contemporary and unabashedly feminine take on a classic, must-have style.
What Are the Different Types of Brogues?
There are other small distinguishing characteristics that separate pairs between brogues, oxfords, and derbys—meaning that they can sometimes be characterised similarly. One of the main defining features is any broguing on the shoe (or the patterns marked of perforated detailing on the outside of the leather, as mentioned before), however, another factor is a pair’s lacing system, and whether it is closer knit to give it a slightly more formal appearance.
Womens brogues are often heeled, and our popular styles elevate this feature with a selection of finishes, such as metallic hues, embossed detailing, and rich colourways that are versatile in nature. Their forward-thinking design and fashionable styling adds to this with additional laces provided for alternative styling, to work alongside other orthotic-friendly work shoes (dependent on our trademark removable footbeds—our expert team can be on hand to advise the right style for you).
How Do You Wear Brogues?
Womens brogues oxfords and derbies can enhance casual and dressy ensembles alike, and can come with different soles, such as brogue heels or platform brogues that have a slightly different raised platform. Our fitted support and cushion system ensures that this perfectly proportioned boost is still mindful of the health of your feet, aided by our expertly balanced heel counters. You can style your pair with everything from a jumpsuit for a feminine twist or with a tailored suit for a sophisticated style statement.
