Our Mashburn brogues are a new addition to the footwear gang and buy jove, they’re lovely. They come in the classic American brogue styling which means the side profile of the shoe is much cleaner and less decorative than it’s traditional, British counterpart. However, it still has all the same hallmarks of a great brogue. We would say that these shoes seem to have a bit more of a trainer toe than the other footwear we offer, so it may be an easier transition to these if you’re used to wearing training shoes usually.
The shoes are made from a beautiful corrected, burgundy leather that has been shined up to a treat. The shoes are lined in leather and here is the best bit… The shoes sit on a super comfy Solovair sole, meaning that they are super comfy straight out of the box. Solovair, were the original makers of the air suspended sole unit, so you really are wearing a bit of history!
Each pair comes with the famous words from my Grandma embossed into the sock liner of “I bet you didn’t get those from Tommy Balls.” A sentence she would often utter when I visited her wearing new shoes.
The shoes are made to order for your lovely feet, as a result can take up to 3 weeks to be made and delivered. We recommend going down a size from your normal trainer size, or if you normally wear grown up shoes then you know to do this already.
