The wonderful world of brogues as worn by women, and sometimes men.

York second hand brogue

These beauties not only have brogue detailing with a spine-tingling (do I sound like a pervert? I'm running out of adjectives here!) suede/patent combo, but they also come with the brogue icing on the cake, a kiltie fastened with a teeny buckle. Man if those shoes weren't a size 4 or whatever they were I would have snapped them up so fast, despite contravening the no painful heel rule. Darn etc...

Coin-op band member handmade brogue

This is still from Duncan's night, a member of one of the bands, Coin-op, was wearing some really special brogues. They were apparently handmade for a man who had one leg longer than the other which is a really nice story. I like the navy and cream combo, very smart.

Vaughan's battered trad brogues

If you look carefully you can see he has Imperial Leather written on his left leg, I can only assume alcohol was to blame. The brogues are lovely traditional brown shoes with slightly larger punch holes, and they need a good polish, perhaps even resoling. Anyway a great brogue specimen, I just hope Vaughan's had a bath since then.

Duncan's Irregular Choice brogues

When my friend Duncan put a music night on recently it was a veritable brogue-fest. I was, disappointingly, wearing canvas pumps. At least it was a good night, so if you're in the Brighton area have a look at the live nights on his MySpace. The brogues are fantastic noveau brogues, with crazy spinning punch holes and are magically set off by the fancy starry socks. Splendid!

Office Beatrix mary jane reduced to £20

I love these shoes, they're so grannyish and childish and I know I'd only end up wearing them really frumpily but I like em. I've been watching them since Christmas and now they're reduced to £20 so if you love hospital green half as much as me go and buy them.

eBay purple brogue boot

God bless Canadians, for it is Canada that these boots come from. You can get your hands on them for approx £5 starting auction price which is well cheap. You don't get brogue detailing, purple suede, paisley appliqué and flippin snake effect heels for 5 quid in this country. God Bless Canada!

Ortho-brogs from Schuh

Woo! Check out these brogues! Halfway between a sexy lady brogue and an orthopaedic shoe I have kind fallen in love with these brogues. For sure I think my personality is halfway between a sexy lady and an orthopaedic... shoe. Anyway they also come in black which looks slighty more cowgirl-noir and you can buy them from Schuh for £49.99.
