London Brogues History Banner

Brand History


London brogues are fashionable and widely used shoes by respectable individuals in the world today. The word brogue has its ancient root from the Gallic word "brog." At inception, they were crafted as turn-shoes with a latchet and stiff low heel sole, which made them more waterproof when worn in a waterlogged environment. In the 16th century, brogue became a recognized English word. The shoe style enjoyed full acceptance among the Scottish and Irish mercenaries that were involved in the fight for the European armies in the 17th century.
