This is a classic buckle style brogue for formal events, especially good for military events or for those who choose not to wear the traditional laced Ghillie as this is replaced with a strap and buckle fixture. This shoe is made using the Goodyear welted construction, where the quality of the welt and finished lock stitch can clearly be seen. The shoe has a polished leather upper for the more traditional look. The shoe is leather lined to allow the foot to breathe and includes a padded leather insole and top line for maximum comfort around the heel and ankle. The Thistle logo is engraved onto the leather sole unit.
