Threads for Thought: Brogue Boots

As is the case with pants during the winter, there comes a time when the footwear options seem to repeat themselves, no matter how many options at your disposal. Boots are a clear cut choice along with other chunky, rugged styles that provide a solid base in the not-so-nice weather, but what happens when an occasion calls for a dressier facade.

Brogue boots combine classic sensibilities with the solid foundation they need to take on the most inclement weather. Brogues, especially the more streamlined options have been reliable dress options for years, and by adding a 4-6 inch shaft to the ankle, the classy piece is transformed into a multipurpose footwear choice. Even after the cold has subsided, these boots can be style unlaced with jeans or biker pants for a sophisticated high-low look that is sure to turn heads.
