When it comes to men's shoes, the normal is out and Brogues are in.

There is nothing new about Brogues as they have been around for decades, but they are a treasure in gentlemen's footwear that had been forgotten for a while and have resurfaced on the revolving wheel of men's fashion. Brogues are re-emerging and they are a must-have for men.

Brogues are creative perforations that are made in shoes. While the original goal was to ensure that water did not gather in men's shoes, this trend has now evolved into a fashion statement. Men have nothing to fear as there are Brogues for every gentleman - from the simple to the extreme.

There are traditionally three kinds of Brogues: the quarter Brogues that are along the cap line of the front of the shoe; the semi Brogues that have the perforations at the toes and along the cap line as well; and finally, for the adventurer, all-over Brogues.

Brogues are no longer just for the classic gentlemen oxford, but men can sport more casual forms such as suede and other synthetic materials.

With the wide variety of Brogues currently available, there is no excuse for any man to not have a pair in his closet.
