Brogues are essential in Men’s fashion today. These are versatile shoes – perfect for formal occasions like office and if paired well then, they are good even for casual party evenings.
Though Brogues are considered fashionable today but it all started in Ireland where farmers working in potato fields punched holes in the shoe uppers to let the water drain out to drain the water out. Over a period of time – they got more creative in punching these holes and patterns emerged. And this is how brogues which are must haves even for army folks today, started.
These shoes have been around for over 400 years and from contemporary fashion perspective – brogue is a shoe which has perforated patterns. So, depending on what kind of shoe we are talking about – brogues can be oxford, derby, half, quarter, ghillie, monk and so on. The second defining element of a brogue is that they usually have low heel. Typically, the brogues come with wingtips on the front toe part – a W shaped panel which has perforated pattern but now a day there are lot of variants which do not follow the classical norms.
TZARO brogues are a special class of shoes. There are three distinct elements of this shoe – (1) these shoes are very light, one of the lightest in the industry; (2) these have been made with handpicked genuine leather with genuine leather lining (3) these shoes have been designed to keep your feet dry – they can ventilate sweat very efficiently (4) these have long lasting thick cushioning to reduce the stress on the feet (5) the soles are designed to give you a grip even on most polished surface. Gimlet has a sporty sneaker sole and it comes in two colors, while Martini has a light informal touch with the sole. The flexible outsole sole gives you good surface grip and is extremely light in weight. T Hill is a formal shoe though it doesn’t have a wingtip style toe pattern. Gimlet comes with derby closure while T Hill and Gimlet have Oxford closures. All these shoes have a specific design which helps in reducing the stress on your knees, which means that these will lower your fatigue even when you use these for over 10-12 hours at a stretch. Gimlet and T-hill soles have an abrasion of 194 which means that you can use these over the years with minimal impact on sole wear and tear.
