New York Brogs

(Iso has added some comments in italics)

Spotted in Cake Shop in the Lower East Side, worn by a very happy and cool lady.

Spotted in Beacons Closet, Williamsburg a well known treasure trove for the thrifty yet stylish.

Spotted at the private view of JD Samson's Lesbion Utopia Calender in Soho, NY.
Sam spotted these and was brave enough to ask the uber trendoid if she could take a pic. It helps if you're wearing fembrogs when you're asking.

Iso's heart nearly missed a beat when these amazing fembrog boots walked into the Parkett office.
These actually belong to Collier Schorr artist extrodinaire who may not like Dean and Deluca cookies, but sure likes fembrogs.

Spotted on the L train (the chosen subway line of hipsters and fashionistas!).
These belonged to a rather stroppy woman. I was sitting on the subway in rush hour and spotted them, Sam persuaded me to ask her if I could take a picture. So I walked over to her seat and asked her if I could take a picture. She grudgingly stuck one foot out and it was murder to get her to stick the other one out I tell ye!

These fembrogs were all spotted (mostly by eagle eyed Iso) in New York. We would tentatively ask strangers if we could take photos of their brogs, which everyone agreed to, even if they seemed a little confused (I think they thought we were foot fetishists).
