This is our executive grained Ghillie brogue. 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 heavy grained quality 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 and with steel quarter tips hand screwed into the heel for maximum durability and authenticity.
We are delighted to share Thistle Shoes, a family run shoe making business based on Fife. A wonderful team committed to providing traditional Ghillie brogues, the perfect partner for any kilt. You'll also find lovely day brogues should you be looking for a contemporary look.
