What is Brogueing?
It's an old English technique used on worker's shoes to allow water to drain from the shoe through punctured holes forming a pattern along the edges and a medallion on the front of the shoe. The perforations create the brogue’s detail. 

At our workshop in Antigua, our cobblers use a custom made tool to make the holes and create the pattern by hand. Not only is this a beautiful technique for shoe collectors, but for us is another tradition worth preserving

A note about sizing...
Please measure before you buy! Our sizes run different than what your child may currently be using, so the best thing is to measure. Do not size up, our boots already include extra space for socks and growth.

How we make them

A craftsman cuts the leather by hand, choosing the leather carefully and making sure that he follows the grain of the leather, his expert eye tells him the best way to cut each piece. He then sews each piece with accuracy and exactness only seasoned cobblers have mastered. Each upper body is placed then in the shoe form and with skilled and strength, the master cobbler dresses the form and prepares it to attach the leather sole. The soles are then layered, one on top of another, he then cuts and sands the leather to perfection. Once the glue is dry the leather Artisan then carefully builds-up the finish with an expert’s eye, and touch, to achieve an aged patina in just the right places to reflect the aged qualities only time, wear, and frequent care could have accomplished naturally.
