- They send you a wrong size. Brent
Value Quality PriceI ordered US size 12, and they sent a UK size 11 with a card that says UK size is different...yadda yadda... They don't fit, and I have zero time for an exchange. I'll be uncomfortable at my wedding. Do yourself a favor. Order a whole size larger. I'd give a better value if I didn't spend the mine for a one time wearing.
[Admin Note: We list our shoes in US Sizes as the majority of our customers are in the US. The US size is 1 size smaller than the UK equivalent - Example: US 10 is a UK 9] (Posted on 3/21/2018)

- Good Brogues at Affordable Price MJW01
Price Value QualityFirst set of Ghillie's and on a tight budget. After shopping around, went with these. Consulted with customer service about size. I usually wear a US9, and was told the UK8 would fit. Was debating between 8 and 8.5's.
The shoes are excellent quality for the price, but I did find them a bit tight. Length seems to be good, but very narrow, especially with thicker kilt socks. Fortunately they can be stretched a bit, which I think is going to be a must for many people. I'm wondering if the 8.5's might have been the better choice? (For the record, I have a very high arch, so I often find dress shoes a little tight until they get broken in.)
Once they were stretched out, they are very comfortable. Very much enjoying these Ghillie Brogues, and getting lots of compliments.

- Great shoes, Great service Russ
Quality Price ValueI've been wanting to get new ghillies for a long time but could never find what I wanted. I needed a sole that wasn't slippery in the Alaskan/Maine winters. I started my search and found USAKilts. Their shoe was perfect. A good price and a rubber treaded sole. My only complaint is their lack of WIDE sizes. Doesn't anyone in the UK have wide feet? I already went up one full size because of my thick hose, but a wide would be so much better. My thanks to everyone at USA Kilts. (Posted on 11/3/2017)
- Great Shoes Ray
Price Value QualityThese are some great shoes! My only complaint is that I have a wide foot, and so it took a few attempts to get the right size. I normally wear a US 8.5 wide, but ended up in a US 9.5 to get them on comfortably. Lucas was great with helping out and my return of the ones that didn't fit. I wore these shoes for hours and had no problems, and they looked great the whole time! (Posted on 10/20/2017)

- Great product but even greater customer service Douglas
Price Value QualityLet me start by saying the size is important for these shoes. They are made in the UK and thus have a different standard of sizing than the US. I really appreciate the quality of the shoes and was disappointed that they were too small. I hate ordering shoes online for this specific reason. If I could, I would fly down from Alaska and visit USA Kilts personally.
I can’t say how much I appreciate your staff’s customer service. This is probably the second time I have talked with Lucas on the phone and he was awesome. His helpful demeanor and great customer service is why I will always order with USA kilts in the future!!!

- Good product for the reasonable price Dave
Price Value QualityWell made and comfortable. The only thing I wished was different is that the laces were a little on the thick side, harder for my bad fingers to tie. If that's all one can find to complain about, it's a great product. (Posted on 9/18/2017)
- Very comfortable shoes Christopher
Price Value QualityI've been trying to order ghillie brogues for a year now from several different companies. Some would not ship to a military address. Some said they would ship but the shoes never came.
USA Kilts was the first company to come through. The shipping was great, and they even sent me a handwritten card, thanking me for my service!
The shoes are very well made and after eight hours of wear, were still comfortable from the first day! (Posted on 8/21/2017)

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.
