Price Value QualityThe staff at USA Kilts were wonderful! After trying several places to find a pair of Ghillies Brogues, I was told about USA Kilts. I ordered two pairs but needed to visit the store. An easy ride and I found the right size! They also have all the other uniform supplies! Thank you! (Posted on 2/16/2020)

- Awesome! oscrap
Price Value QualityThese ghillies are very nice. As my first pair I was unsure of sizing and comfort. I called and spoke with Lucas who was able to not only recommend these shoes but also size me correctly. Ended up buying 3 pairs-one for each of my family members who are pipers and snare drummers in a pipe and drum band. Can't recommend USA Kilts enough! (Posted on 12/31/2019)

Quality Price ValueVery comfortable. Tried them on with different hose types and thickness. Shoes fit well. Right now, just breaking them in by wearing around the house for a bit...have a parade in early August and I feeling they will do me well! (Posted on 7/19/2019)
- Great shoes Daave B
Value Quality PriceI had to order shoes two weeks before a parade. I wanted a synthetic sole as leather is too slippery for a drum major; so I chose the Endrick.
USA Kilts got them to me quickly so I could wear them inside for a week, and then break them in marching for a week before the parade. After about five miles around the neighborhood, the leather was loosening up enough that they were comfortable, The heel takes longer to break in so I do recommend moleskin on both heels for the first few parades. The first parade went off without a complaint so I would recommend these ghillies to others.
The leather seems of good quality and takes a nice shine. The padding is good around most of the top but could be a little thicker at the heel. But I can't complain about the fit (my shoe size worked perfectly) and the price is a bargain. (Posted on 7/5/2019)

- Great shoes, but..... Jeff
Value Quality PriceThese are a very nice pair of shoes, but, having small feet, I could not find a pair in my size. Pity that, but USAKilts was again great with their customer service and gave me a refund as soon as they got them back. (Posted on 4/15/2019)
- Much nicer than I expected SBR140.6
Quality Price ValueI normally wear a size 10 or 10.5 USA in a dress shoe. I ordered the 10.5 (marked as EUR 9.5). They fit fine out of the box with regular socks on, but my wool kilt socks are a bit thicker. They, like most new leather shoes, were a bit stiff as well. I sprayed a little shoe softener/stretcher on them a couple of times the week before I needed to wear them. I marched in three parades in a row and never had an issue. No soreness, no blisters! Very happy with the purchase. (Posted on 3/19/2019)

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.
