The Celtic Croft has a great selection of ghillie brogues to compliment your Scottish, Irish, and Welsh attire. Family owned and operated in the USA. Ghillie Brogues are the Scottish shoe for bagpipers, formal wear, recreation, and casual occasions.
Modern brogues trace their roots to a rudimentary shoe originating in Scotland and Ireland that was constructed using leather with perforations that allowed water to drain from the shoes when the wearer crossed wet terrain such as a bog.
Synthetic Sole Ghillies
The Synthetic Sole Ghillies are a great choice if you want a good basic shoe that matches your Kilt. They also happen to be our best selling ghillies. They are great for all occasions! Theay have a high density rubber sole with full leather uppers and are made in Scotland. Available in mens U.S. sizes 7-13. If you do choose to go with this option please allow 1 – 8 weeks for delivery depending on what we have in stock.
Premium Leather Sole Ghillies
The Premium Leather Sole Ghillies are a good choice if plan to wear them mostly for formal occasions, or for dancing. The leather sole is a more traditional, formal design, and better for dancing. Features include: full leather upper, a light hued calf leather lining, a padded top line for comfort, and cemented leather sole.
Light-Weight Piper Ghillies
Our Light-Weight Piper Ghillies are the most comfortable brogues available anywhere and will look stunning with your Kilts and Tartan! These are my personal favorite ghillie brogues! They are by far the most comfortable ghillie brogues available. (They're actually the most comfortable shoes I own.) Because the soles are made from a softer material, they are not as durable as our Premium Piper Ghillies, but I think it's a really good compromise to make. They have a nice cushion insole, soft, full leather upper, and foam rubber sole. We try very hard to keep all sizes in stock. If we happen to be out of your size, you will need to allow 3-6 weeks for delivery. We'll let you know!

Features include: full length high density padded insole, padded top-line for extra comfort, premium quality full leather upper, and (although the picture doesn't show it), these ghillies have a steel heel-plate to help prevent wear.
