There's something about these gentlemen-like brogues that captures my heart. Did you know these low-heeled shoes were originally constructed for the outdoor country and the perforations allowed water to drain when crossing wet terrains. It was never intended for casual or business occasions which is now a huge fad today with fashion worn by both men and women. Crazy eh? (...the Canadian inside me) I adore these manly oxfords and especially adore the Paul Smith and ASOS brogues. They make the legs look even slimmer when worn with skinnies and fit-and-flare skirts.
