Metallic Brogues - My Current Lust List


I haven't been shopping for absolutely ages.  Having recently moved house (and country), there have been other more pressing things on my mind than new shoes (I know, right, who even am I?).

I seem to have let the trend of brogues pass me by last winter, which is a shame because I love a bit of androgynous dressing.  So I figured as Autumn is nearly here, a great metallic brogue could be just the thing my wardrobe is crying out for.

They would look amazing with cropped jeans, culottes, midi skirts...the list goes on.  Of course, the debate is whether to go for gold or silver (or even bronze, or copper), but I figure I'll make up my mind when I find the perfect shape brogue.

I'm looking for something that ideally has a bit of a flatform going on as opposed to being actually flat like a "real brogue".  I'd like a bit of detail but not too much in case they veer into clown shoe territory.

Here are the ones that I found that hit my sweet spot.

The first pair are from ASOS (£40) and although they don't have any traditional brogue-like detailing, I do rather love the the silver flatforms, though I fear they may get horribly trashed if I wore them outside of the house.  How cool are the silver laces, too?

These next ones from Zara (£29.99) are a bit of a bargain and have a bit more detail going on.  Loving the structured sole and these are probably a bit more practical than the Zara ones too.  The stitching around the toe is a nice detail, too.

These Kurt Geiger Knox ones have more of a sneaker feel to them, so would I'm guessing would be really comfortable to wear all day. More brogue detailing makes them appealing but the price doesn't...(£110).  They are leather though, so there's less chance of them stinking after a couple of weeks (please don't tell me that's just me).

These high shine gold brogues from River Island (£45) have a bit of an espadrille detail around the sole which I love but it's making me think "summer" rather than "autumn".

The next couple of pairs aren't exactly what I'm looking for, but I'm sure they'll hit the spot for someone.  The first black and pewter pair are scored from Office and are reduced to £28 which is a great price for leather.  They're too formal for me and a little too masculine, though.

 I do rather like these ones with their traditional tan leather and flash of gold to the yoke.  They're from Office and reduced to £52, almost half price.

 These three pairs are all from Dune and sit firmly in the sneaker camp, much more so than the Kurt Geiger Knox ones above.  The first pair are a little too "straight down the fairway" for my tastes - Dune Eddy £110.

The Dune Etsy sneaker/shoe comes in a range of colours including this divine copper (though hard to wear with lots of colours) and the easier on the eye pewter.

The last four pairs I've got to show you are more nude than metallic, particularly the last pair, but in all honestly I think they might be a really great shoe for pretty much any outfit.  First up is this cheap as chips pair from La Redoute £65 which features a flash of baby blue - great if you're still loving your pastels.

Topshop have nailed it with these leather offerings for just £35.  They're not quite as chunky as I want, but I adore the colour.

Final pair from Dune are just delicious.  Perfect amount of detail, gorgeous shade of blush and I love the cleated sole. And best of all they're leather and reduced to £60.  Sold!




What are you planning to wear on your feet this Autumn?  I'll be talking about ankle boots soon if brogues aren't your thing.
