Buttery Brogues



Hello everyone!

You may be wondering from the heading why I have described my new pretties as 'buttery' but this is the most accurate description I could come up with to do them justice. They are a buttery brown colour, have a buttery soft texture yet structured and left me melting inside at first glance. I am in LURVE with them (If you couldn't tell already). Such was my love for them that I patiently waited 3 weeks for my order to come in. The beauty of Clarks shoes is that they cater for 1/2 sizes...a blessing for someone who is a 5 1/2 and who often misses out on the nicest shoes/boots/heels. Yup, first world problems of the highest order.

So here they are in all of their buttery beautiful glory. These are an investment piece and will be my summer go-to shoe fo shooo. The cutout detail makes them airy and bang on trend. The twine-like laces make the shoe, I think. They are also quite light even though they are leather brogues, another bonus. Ticking all of the shoe-y boxes. Hurrah to Clarkes!

I won't lie they were a pricey €85 but well worth it. I have worn them twice already and can happily confirm I was sans blisters after both occasions. And in all honesty even if they were a little on the ouchy side, good quality brogues are worth a little pain as they become an extension to your foot. Or so has been the case with me, but then I am a brogue enthusiast so I may be a little biased...

Have a good week!

  1. Oh they are so beautiful! Definitely worth the investment. The colour is so perfect, I can imagine how beautiful they will look with a pair of dark jeans and a stripey top!

  7. They are lovely and buttery is a perfect description! I love half sizes as I'm either a 4 or a 4 and a half. I have small feet for my height haha.
