Brogues have a natural heft that stems from their origins wading through bogs. But where the original design was to let water out after calf-deep immersion – hence the holes punched in the upper – modern versions keep you from getting wet in the first place! These Italian beauties are crafted with a chunky, rugged sole to give you clearance from the puddles. Traditional broguing traces the contours and flourishes at the toe of a wardrobe-staple wingtip. Classic black leather, with a slight texture for durability. European size 43; North American Size 10. Excellent condition at 17th Avenue!
