- Quality shoe. Wide is actually wide. Cory
Price Value QualityI'm currently wearing to "warm up" the leather and break in around the house before an event in a couple of days. No complaints so far. The last time I had my foot measured (over 20 years ago) I was an 11.5 6E. Pretty sure it has spread out since (likely 7-8E) and just for the record, a foot can't get any flatter. I have been told I have a similar foot profile of someone with charcot foot (fortunately without the pain or disability). I ordered a 13 wide. My foot hangs over the instep as it does with every shoe I own short of a couple pairs of custom made mocs. That said, it's still quite comfortable. I may have to add a bit of moleskin padding in the heal to keep them from slipping, but overall I am quite pleased. Hope this helps others with freakishly shaped feet. (Posted on 2/13/2021)

- Definitely for wide feet Trevor
Value Quality PriceFantastic build quality, like the Endricks, but if you have wide feet, both of these are proper "dress shoe" type shoes, not very forgiving. Do yourself a favor and get the wide Glenfinnans if you have any concern about width. (Posted on 3/13/2019)
- GREAT shoes Debra
Quality Price ValueI ordered these as a birthday gift for someone who needed the wide width. They arrived very quickly and you could smell the wonderful leather as soon as I opened the box. It is high quality, and just exquisite. Top notch product! (Posted on 2/23/2019)

- Great Shoe - Excellent Service Dylan
Value Quality PriceI ordered these shoes last minute, less than 2 weeks before the Burns Supper I needed them for. They arrived quickly, and despite my ordering the wrong size, USA Kilts was able to process my exchange with a little time to spare before the big event. Thanks for the quick service!
Regarding the sizing: I typically wear a 8.5 US, so I ordered the 7.5 UK. For some reason those ones looked like clown shoes on me. After sizing down to a 6 UK, I was good to go. (Posted on 2/3/2019)

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.
