Price Value QualityThese shoes are what I wear when I want something between casual and formal.
I like the rubber sole with the metal plate in the heel.
With the same insole i use I all of my shoes, I can wear these all day. (Posted on 8/24/2023)
- Great Product Josh
Price Value QualityWhen it comes to dress shoes in general, you tend to pay twice the price for something that can break with half the effort. These piper ghillies are sturdily built yet bear the same elegance as anything else. (Posted on 8/24/2023)
- A great pair Taylor
Quality Price ValueLook fantastic, comfortable right out of the box, fast shipping. Walked two parades back to back days with no issue and it was pouring rain for the first one. Wear a 10.5 shoe and ordered 10.5 fit was good with a pair of piper hose. (Posted on 3/30/2023)

- Comfortable Leslie
Price Value QualityMy shoes came in a size smaller than ordered, which worked out perfectly because they fit just right with two pairs of socks! (I believe this was done intentionally by the company ). They are amazingly comfortable and I never expected to get them before St. Patrick’s Day. I am thrilled with my purchase. Thank you so much.

- Comfortable and look great Christina
Value Quality PriceI love the packaging these came in. They are also comfortable and supportive. I enjoyed wearing them this St. Patrick's parade season. I wish they were 100% synthetic instead of leather but the rubber soles are very nice. (Posted on 3/27/2022)

As the highlands of Scotland have a plethora of rainy days and bogs and rivers to trek through, the highlanders living there needed footwear appropriate for the climate. Out of necessity was born the Ghillie Brogue.
The ghillie brogue started out as a shoe that would allow water to drain quickly. They have a pattern of holes (similar to ‘wing tips’) and do not have tongues. This is to give water a way to escape while they walked. They also have laces which wrap around the leg. This is so the wearer’s shoe won’t get stuck in the mud while walking.
Tying Ghillie Brogues - While there are a few different ways to tie them, this is the way we find the best:
1. Put on the shoes and pull the laces tight.
2. While pulling them taut and holding them near the ends, twist the laces around each other 4 times, clockwise.
3. Pull the laces straight out to each side (one in either direction) to make a small, 1” high ‘column’ of twists right above the top of the shoe.
4. Next pass the laces behind your leg in opposite directions so that they cross in the back, about 2” to 3” up from the top of the heel of the shoe (around your Achilles). Make half knot in back and tighten it.
5. Bring the laces around to the front, about 4” to 5” above the top of the shoe. Make a half knot and tie the shoes (make “bunny ears”). I highly recommend double knotting the shoes to keep them from coming undone.
If you're not going to remember how to do this later, we suggest printing out this page and keeping it in the box with your shoes until you can do it from memory.
