Wingtips are often described as full brogues. The wingtip is the long W shape that goes from the toecap to usually halfway down the shoe. Brogue actually means the holes or perforations that most wingtips have. Our Italian made derby wingtips are designed to be more relaxed and less formal than their oxford cousins, but smarter and more stylish than a country brogue. Black is versatile and perfect for a business or formal look, while brown and tan also work well with a smart or semi casual style. Read more in our wingtip blog.
