The Best Brogues in the Shops

We’re big brogues gals. The sturdiest member of the flat family is ideal for these Autumn days and evenings, and thanks to Clarks and M&S you can embrace the jewel tones of the season. The brogue charms on all fronts – those dashes of masculinity combine with a post-war sensibility to make the ultimate smart girl shoe. Keira Knightley is one of the best ambassador for the shoe, regularly treading indie festival red carpets with a pair.

Hamble Oak Dark Grean Lea €99


If you’re after your own pair we’d recommend a visit to M&S where the Autograph range has a simple variation on the theme (?77) in three shades that will work with most colour combinations.

While these chain loafers from Topshop make for an ideal night-time look – say goodbye to Sunday morning blisters and hello to a lot of ?Where did you get those shoes??

Kara Chain Loafers, €72

And Ireland’s unofficial First Lady, Amy Huberman, is also a fan of the brogue, including a brown suede-y pair as part of her new shoe collection with Bourbon. Every item in the collection is called after one of Amy’s favourite moves and we can’t think of a more suitable honorific than Sense and Sensibility
