A brogue is type of dress shoe distinguished by punch-out detail (known as brogueing) that accentuates the lines and curves where the counter, quarters, vamps and/or cap toes join. A full brogue has a winged toe cap. A half brogue (or semi-brogue) has a straight toe cap. The style was popularized by the Prince of Wales in the 1930’s, and the word brogue comes from the Gaelic term for shoe.
