The brogue shoe did not begin its life as fancy footwear for socialites. Instead, it was born out of necessity, to help drain water from the shoes during outdoor activities, such as hunting in wet terrain. Over time, this, the brogue shoe, slowly became accepted for business and casual attire. Although its functionality is overlooked nowadays, many consumers are a fan of its aesthetics. British footwear company Admiral took the opportunity to reflect back on its heritage by revamping the brogue style onto modern sneakers. These three models – Startford, Startford Mid, and Willcott – are part of the newly developed Rebellion Collection and can be found at select Admiral dealers worldwide.
