Have you seen any nice BROGUES?

I'd like some flat or very-low heel brogues.

Not the kind with the very thick platform-ish sole.

Maybe in that nice dark red colour (oxblood). Or maybe just black.

Maybe with those patterny holes.

Not the part-black-part-white ones that make me think I should be a tap-dancing gangster.

Anyone seen any? Or GOT some?

Actually Clarkes Hamble might be suitable?

Hamble Oaks. I have them in pewter and I love them

Was about to say Hamble Oaks from Clark's, they are really comfy

How do you tap dance surreptitiously?

Is it not by its very nature an ostentatious action? grin

I have a pair of patent black Clarks Hamble - not bad at all. Also some brown brogue boots from Dune, really comfortable.

Is that three recommendations for the same shoes? Amazing!

Do I want black or the metallic... Maybe I want the metallic...

Trills Sat 08-Oct-16 17:07:11

FOUR recommendations for the same ones.

And they do half sizes...

I have Clarks Hamble Oaks in pewter too! I love them smile

Just bought the Hambles in green. I love them. Though DH has started calling them my elf shoes. He is of course, wrong.

Another vote for Hamble Oaks from Clarks. I bought the tan pair last week and love them! There was a 20% off code, it might be worth seeing if you can find one (I had mine on a promotional card which they took from me so don't know it).

Trills Sat 08-Oct-16 17:08:25

The website is calling it "gold metallic" but is that what you mean when you're saying pewter?

Buttonmoonb4tea Sat 08-Oct-16 17:08:54

Hamble oaks here too, in tan. Love them.

Matildatoldsuchdreadfullies Sat 08-Oct-16 17:09:24

Ummm.... the Hamble Oaks are comfortable, but I think the OP ought to be aware that in a survey, it was found that 6/10 primary school teachers own a pair*. Including me.

* Not exactly MORI anecdotal evidence based on my experiences as a supply teacher

I have the oxblood Hambles from a few years ago. Love them!

itstheyearzero Sat 08-Oct-16 17:10:22

No, mine are actually pewter. I got mine in TK Made though so maybe they were end of line??

PoochiePoo Sat 08-Oct-16 17:10:28

I have the Clarks ones too. Wore them yesterday and walked loads - super comfy.

Trills Sat 08-Oct-16 17:10:57

I am now torn between the colours that the website calls "aubergine" and "gold metallic".

I am fine with the primary school teacher thing but thanks for the warning Matilda grin

PrincessHairyMclary Sat 08-Oct-16 17:12:23

I love my patent black Hambles, to add diversity to Matildas statistics I work in a secondary school.

KanyesVest Sat 08-Oct-16 17:14:06

I have the aubergine hambles and I luffs them. They are more plummy than oxblood.

PNGirl Sat 08-Oct-16 17:16:58

I controversially prefer Clarks Tomina Mia in black (strap monk shoes instead of brogues).

Trills Sat 08-Oct-16 17:18:07

OK I'm going for the aubergine, since I did say that I wanted a reddish colour (no true oxblood available in this season's lines apparently). And I love purple.

As an alternative to the hambles, which are lovely.

I have these:

They're gorgeous and I get loads of compliments on them.
