- Great fit for wide feet! MarkR
Quality Price ValueI'd had Ghillie brogues in the past that hurt my feet, in part because of the width. So I paid a little more and got ones that really fit!
True to size (12W) and nice looking, too. Looks and feels like good quality. Laces could be a little longer for my oversized legs, but the end tassels are super sharp-looking! (Posted on 4/13/2022)

Price Value QualityI decided on these Brogues after doing a lot of searching. I am very happy with them! They made it in time for St. Patrick's Day and our Denver parade. I ordered them in my normal size as suggested, and was able to wear them all day with no discomfort. Received several compliments during the day! Thank you all. (Posted on 3/18/2022)
- Excellent shoes and calue AlanV
Value Quality PriceI started with the Endricks in a men’s 9M but they (as well as the 8.5M) we’re too big and the 8M was too small.
Tried the Glenfinnan and ultimately it was a size 8M that fit almost perfectly. Always try on multiple sizes in other brands, folks. It makes a difference.
Super comfy right out of the box and I walked around the house in them for a few hours (with proper kilt hose) to break them in a little and I have no complaints.
I’m confident these brogues will last for years. (Posted on 3/12/2022)

Quality Price ValueI was a bit concerned about ordering shoes online, I usually have problems finding a good fit in a store. These fit great and are very comfortable. (Posted on 2/22/2022)

Quality Price ValueI ordered these in my regular size and the fit and look great. Very comfortable. The leather soles may not be everyone's choice but they add class. (Posted on 1/19/2022)
- 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)

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.
