One Shoe, Five Ways: How To Wear This Season’s Men’s Brogues

A classic brogue never goes out of style — but it doesn’t only have to be worn on dressy occasions either. Men’s labels reworked the style this season by graphic kiltie detailing or heavy lug soles for a more casual look. Whether your style is grungy or preppy, consider the brogue a new staple.

Below, see five different ways to wear this season’s coolest brogues:

Grunge Factor
A thick lug sole as seen on this Grenson style is a cool update on a classic shape. Give it a grungy spin via dyed denim, a graphic T-shirt and skater accessories.

Casual Cool
We know, we know: You want to wear sneakers on the weekend. But a tanned suede brogue from Brunello Cucinelli will polish off a more casual look (even when worn with a wild Hawaiian print shirt).
