Description

At Thistle Shoes we pride ourselves on our quality and service, as we still make our ghillie brogues the same way as we always have, by using traditional skills and craftsmen. ” The Comfort  ” is our ideal ghillie brogue for gentlemen who prefer the 1st class lifestyle .

Ghillie brogues are most commonly seen as an essential component of traditional, formal Scottish dress and are worn primarily for social occasions.

Historically this has not always been the case as they trace their roots to a rudimentary shoe originating in Scotland and Ireland that was constructed using untanned leather with perforations that allowed water to drain from the shoes when the wearer crossed wet terrain such as a bog.

The word “brogues” originates in the late sixteenth century and is a derivation of the Irish and Scots Gaelic “brōg”, taken from the Old Norse “brók” meaning “leg covering”
