- They fit like a glove! CZ
Price Value QualityI had originally selected the Endrick Ghillie Brogues as part of a larger kilt order. Due to the wrong size having been provided by the supplier in the UK, the staff at USA Kilts kindly alerted me to this before my order was dispatched, offering to upgrade my selection free of charge to the Glenfinnan Ghillie Brogues to avoid any delay with my order. I am so pleased with these shoes - they fit like a glove with kilt hose in my usual shoe size. They are very comfortable and look fantastic. A very big thank you to USA Kilts for such fantastic service all round! (Posted on 9/1/2021)
- Ghillie Brogues Michael
Price Value QualityWonderful footwear to round out my attire for a semi formal event. A number of comments of curiosity from people unfamiliar with this dress. “You looked better than the bagpiper!” But my advice: go to a foot wear store that offers digital sizing/analysis. Initially, I sized off most recent shoes purchased, that being the usual walking shoe. Big mistake. (Posted on 8/25/2021)
- Fantastic shoes! Donahue
Price Value QualityThe wide-width Glenfinnan ghillie brogues I ordered are fantastic! They fit like they were custom-made, and the leather and construction are of very good quality. The very best part, however, is that I wore them for over 12 hours straight out of the box and they were perfectly comfortable the whole time. In my experience (particularly with my wide feet), this is virtually unheard-of. Put all this together with prompt, courteous and friendly customer service and you have a buying experience second to none. Thanks USA Kilts (particularly Lucas M)!! (Posted on 8/23/2021)

- Fit wide feet well Jim
Quality Price ValueThese tend to run a half size smaller larger than what my normal shoe size was. Product was very high-quality once I receive them very impressed with the craftsmanship. Staff was very helpful to ensure I received the right size. (Posted on 4/28/2021)
- 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)

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.
