VARIETIES OF MEN'S SHOES: BROGUES.
Brogues. Universal shoes One of the types of popular men's shoes are brogues. These are classic boots with lacing, equipped with perforation (blogging). It can be a shoe decorating pattern. Also, this type of shoe has a wide flat heel and a detachable toe of different shapes, depending on the model.
Probably, many wondered how and under what circumstances these fashionable shoes appeared. The word "brogues" in translation from Norwegian means "cover for the foot." Brogues, whose history of origin, originated in the 17th century, came to us from Ireland and Scotland. British farmers, spending a lot of time in the peatlands, made holes in their leather shoes with a nail nailed with an awl. Thus, the water that got into it flowed out, the shoes were aired and quickly dried out. From farmers, the manner of wearing similar shoes passed to the foresters, and only then representatives of the aristocracy, who wore brogues for hunting, began to wear them. Even then, the upper part of the shoes became two-layered, and the perforation was applied only to the upper part so that the water would not completely fall into them. Then the shoes, which are gaining popularity, became interested in designers, who turned the perforation into shoe decoration. So, they turned into golf shoes that even the Prince of Wales himself wore, which ensured their popularity all over the world. In the 20th century, perforation lost its practical significance and remained only as an element of decor. Later, women's versions of this shoe appeared.
Now there are several of the most common types of these shoes: full brogues that are completely perforated. The cape is an English letter "W". semi-logs, in which the perforation is located along the seams, and the toe looks like a medallion. quarter brogues - shoes with perforations only along the seams. At the moment they are one of the most fashionable and popular types of shoes, both among men and women. These shoes are great with suits made of wool or tweed jeans. However, it must be borne in mind that brogues do not fit well with strict suits, and, therefore, are not suitable for business meetings.
