Initially used by Irish men only as outdoor/country footwear, the brogues were sturdy shoes with decorative, water-draining perforations. Today they can also be worn in social or business contexts, making them a must in any gentleman’s wardrobe. Just take a look at the ‘Anatomia’ Brogue Boots ($570) you see here, to get a better picture.
Handcrafted in Italy by Officine Creative, this pair of brown leather boots is punctuated with brogue-inspired perforations, sitting on a wooden heel and finished with a rubber sole for good traction. More than 100 traditional techniques ( like advanced washing and burnishing finishes ) were performed to achieve an authentic patina, giving the shoes a lived-in look that is still totally polished. Combining easily with anything you wear ( especially jeans, chinos, and casual looks ), the ‘Anatomia’ Brogue Boots are perfect for the autumn season, making you stand out both at work or at a weekend party.
