    Just wondering what people thought about brogues in general and what they think about the ones linked above. Are they trendy of a bit strange? I was thinking of wearing them with skirts/ dresses and black tights.

    i like the thin, discrete ones (usualy cheap, some sold in primark) but i'm not a fan of the chunkier ones (if you know what i mean by thin/chunky ones!). i tihnk they look cute on some people but you need to be able to carry them off.

    I'm not really a fan! I mean, I wouldn't wear them myself but some girls can pull them off ...(think Alexa Chung, Fearne Cotton sort of style)

    Why are those ones #60? (pound sign messed up on this laptop) I got a pair nice than that for #8 in primark.

    I think they're cute, and what you propose to wear them with sounds nice, but you can get pairs that look exactly the same for an awful lot less.

    I'm not a fan of the change in colour in the first 2 but the second one looks nice and I have a 20% off voucher for New Look, so i'm considering them.

    I like them- except mine are brown and don't really go with dark blue jeans...bad sort of mix, and most of my skinnies are that colour!

    I got mine from Jones the Bootmaker for about £70 and I'm not really wearing them now it's finally warm weather, but I'll definitely wear them again in winter even if it's not the fashion anymore.

    I'm after a reasonably priced grey-y/beige-y coloured pair on the high street (but i do have my own beige-y polish if they're too dark), i think they look quite dainty especially fi you only have litte feet and get ones with a nice pattern on them.

    These are cheap and cheerful: http://www.next.co.uk/shopping/women/shoesandboots/4/6

    I have big(ish) feet at size 7. In these shoes I was a 6.5 which was flattering
    I wore mine today with my university hoody and black jeans. I look a bit funny in them in just tights and shorts/skirt as the absolute flatness of them makes my legs look a bit fat...

    I'd been looking for nice brougey style shoes for ages and these were perfect

    i have some cheap black ones. tbh they're a nice alternative to dolly shoes, it's hard to find nice flats to wear on a night out instead of heels!

    I like some of them, but I don't like the ones you posted so much. I prefer these:

    I have some beige ones from Peacocks which are very pump-esque and much more feminine than most other brogues I saw. I love wearing them with skirts and dresses xx
