The Brogue shoe is decorated with a hole pattern and has its origin in the Irish countryside. On the Irish countryside, farmers cut holes in their shoes in order to facilitate drying the inside of their sodden shoes. Nowadays, the holes only have an aesthetic purpose; to decorate the shoes.

The Brogue is a popular model, which can be worn casual or with a formal suit. The Brogue exists in many variants.  The Goodyear welted brogue men’s shoes by WALKINGS is a semi-brogue shoe and is less exuberant and can be worn at any occasion.

The Brogue model is similar to the Oxford shoe. The closed lacing Brogue is suitable for normal and narrow feet.
