Ghillie Brogues (Simulated Black Leather w/ Rubber Sole)

$65.00 $50.00
(You save $15.00)

Product Description

Perfect for pipe band parades and inclement weather. Our new simulated leather ghillie Brogues are durable, well made and easily cleaned. You will not find a better priced ghillie of this quality in the world. Laces and tassles included.   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. very comfortable shoes

    Posted by Bobby on 30th Dec 2019

    I was worried about the sizing, but John helped me out and they fit perfectly. They look incredible and I really like them.

  2. so far so good

    Posted by Eric on 8th Jul 2019

    I have only used these in two parades, but they look great, and were comfortable to wear. I ordered a size 11 American, and they are slightly larger than I would like, but a 10 would have been too small. Thick socks help offset the size.

  3. Great Look and Comfortable

    Posted by John Haslam on 20th May 2019

    Look and feel great. Performing and marching on a concrete floor was a test and passed with flying colors. Marching and standing on a concrete floor for a half hour- no foot soreness!

  4. Perfect

    Shoes fit perfect. Look amazing and comfortable

  5. Exactly what I needed!

    Posted by on 21st Feb 2019

    I ordered these last minute for an event that’s requires these for my uniform. Not only did I get a personal call to find resolution on back stock, they are better than I imagined they would be! I recommend going a half size or whole size up if you plan to wear wool socks with these as they are true to size.

  6. Brogues

    Great product for the price. Well made. Fit well. Easy to maintain. Very pleased with them.

  7. Great Value

    Posted by Jonathan Mabee on 24th Feb 2018

    These are great...would suggest thinking about the thickness of your hose, I ended up going 1 size up l. I also have very wide feet so I needed the width.
    One other mention the rubber soles are slick with no tread Im adding some no slick tape to the ball area of the sole. I just dont want to end up taking a flying lesson with my pipes.

    As SAMS member, I use these for parades & color guard functions many times a year. Although I have more costly brogues, these are more comfortable to wear all day. They are easy to clean. The price cannot be beat. As a long time customer of J. Higgins, the service is always first class. I highly recommend these to someone wanting a good marching brogue or on a tight budget.

  9. Very Pleased

    Posted by Bryan Hogan on 6th Jun 2017

    This is my first pair of Ghillie Brogues. They arrived fast (less than a week during a holiday weekend), fit comfortably. They look great, feel to be built well, and are half the price of other Ghillie Brogues. I wear an 11.5/12 so I got a size 12 due to the kilt hose and they fit great.

  10. Excellent product, even better service.

    Posted by Neal Locke on 14th Mar 2016

    The shoes were great, but I made the mistake of ordering my normal shoe size. With the thick socks, they were just a bit too small. I called J. Higgins on their customer service phone line, and was immediately connected to a live person, who arranged a priority shipment of a larger pair of shoes to go out next day while I returned the original pair via normal post. Shoes arrived promptly and in plenty of time for my event. As I said in the title, the shoes are excellent, but I was most impressed with the level of customer service. Great job!
