History of Brogues

Back in 17th Century, Irish farmers used to work in fields [they call it Bog]. The fields used to be wet and muddy, so they used to punch holes in the shoes to drain out the water. This used to help in drying the shoes a bit faster. The perforations became more patterned over time and these shoes with perforated designs came to be known as Brogues. This is how Brogues came into existence. 


So as difficult as it may sound to believe – Brogues which are now considered appropriate to office as well as for partying have roots back to the farms in Ireland.


Brogue is a shoe with perforated design pattern and there are various kinds of brogues depending on where the perforations are. They are most commonly found in one of four toe-cap styles (full or "wingtip" brogues, semi-brogues, quarter brogues and longwing brogues) and four closure styles (Oxford, Derby, ghillie and monk strap). Most commonly offered as a leather dress shoe, brogues may also come in the form of boots, canvas or leather sneakers or any other shoe type that includes or evokes the multi-piece construction and perforated, serrated edges characteristic of brogues.


Among the TZARO Brogue options, there is a very interesting series called GIMLET – it’s unique wing-tip brogues. This brogue is a sneaker -- its superlight and is hyper-flexible. It comes with powerful ventilation, memory foam cushioning and antiskid sole. This is a great pair to complement you on evening outings with your friends as well as can be used as formal wear to office. THIMPU uses Chelsea boots contours to make a very comfortable brogue.


All TZARO brogues are designed to deliver superb comfort, stink free & cool feet and you can walk with them the whole day. They are designed to reduce stress on knees and ankles.
