Ghillie Brogues (Leather w/ Leather Sole) Black


Product Description

This is our premium quality ghillie brogues. All leather shoes in the Scottish style with lace up laces and tassles included. These come in 1/2 sizes in medium width.  You will not find a better quality ghillie than these.  Note:  The heel has a metal tip that is covered by a thin rubber film which will wear off in the first wearing.  This is normal, and allows to the metal heel cleat to make a clicking sound while walking which is the traditional way of making Scottish ghillies.  It also increases the lifespan of your sole.

Order your American Size & we will ship the British equivalent.  (i.e. if you order an American 10 we will send a size 9).

Note: If you are ordering for a lady, we highly recommend placing your order by phone.  If you are a lady and really want to order ghillies online, then we recommend that you deduct 2 1/2 sizes from your ladies size and order that size.  We'd appreciate a comment during checkout that you have done this, otherwise we will call you. For example, if you wear a ladies 9 1/2 you would order a size 7.

Important Note:  Please try on for size while walking on carpet.  Unfortunately, we cannot exchange shoes that show signs of wear.  Shoes worn for any purpose other than initial trying on for size, while on carpet, cannot be exchanged.

  1. Don’t look any farther

    Posted by Unknown on 31st May 2020

    I got all the answers I needed when I wrote to ask about where the shoes are made, and why their price is so much lower than their competitors. They arrived in two days and were shipped within hours of my order, which was awesome. They are just as high or higher quality as the ghillies I had previously purchased stamped “Made in Scotland.” These are made by J Higgins themselves to an excellent standard, including having the sole actually sewn onto the shoe. I researched shoes from six different companies and these seemed like the best option but were just so much less money that I had to ask several questions. Believe me, as I wear these a few times a week, they are awesome.

  2. Excellent Product

    This product is even better than I expected. The fit is perfect, and the finish is outstanding. Plus very quick service!

  3. Ghillies as described. Good fit and appearance

    Needed a new pair while my others are being repaired. These are good shoes for the money. Will use these for dress shoes and my others will be the all around shoe. In 25 years doing business with jhiggins I have never been disappointed.

  4. Perfect fit.

  8. Good Brogues but Beware

    Posted by Michael on 6th Jan 2019

    Overall, these are good quality brogues, especially at this price point. First the pros:

    Overall construction seems very good. I feel they will be durable and hold up well over time.

    Style is spot on for a traditional brogue.

    I've read other reviews about them being high on the ankle and causing issues, but I didn't find this to be the case. Certainly not so much as to be uncomfortable or cause issues.

    Leather seems to be of good quality.


    Of course, any shoe with a leather sole will be a bit slippery until they get scuffed up a little, so watch those first few steps.

    Size wise, not sure. I wear a 9 (US) with dress socks. Followed advice to order 1/2 size large for the thicker kilt socks. Feels like 9 would have been a hair tight and 9 1/2 fits well, but would have been nice to be just a hair smaller. Again, not a big issue, not big enough to prevent comfortable wear. Next pair, however, I think I'll go back to a 9 and let them stretch out to fit perfectly. I would say these must be a fairly true size, not overly small or large.

    Biggest Con:

    The black dye on the inside of the shoe rubbed off on my white kilt socks, including the laces. Thank God it wasn't a super expensive pair of socks. But be very aware of this when you first wear them. Even without the shoes getting damp, your white socks will end up black by the end of the day. The good news is that nobody will notice the stain, since the shoe will cover it next time. But still, it would have been very upsetting had they been an expensive pair of socks.

    But all said - would definitely order again.

    Had to knock off a star because of the dye issue, but that's my only real complaint.

  9. Perfect fit

    Shoes arrived fast and were true to size.

  10. Ghillies

    Posted by Gloria Culp on 27th Aug 2018

    Ordered another replacement ghillies on an urgent basis. The always wonderful customer service matches the excellent quality of these shoes.
