Trend Alert: Wingtip Shoes

Submitted by on May 24, 2010 – 9:40 am2 Comments

Wingtip shoes are known for their signature toe-cap pattern, which forms a “W” and resembles the profile of a bird spreading its wings.  Also known as “Brogues,” this style originated in Scotland and Ireland, traditionally consisting of a low heel and heavy leather body.

While wingtips were originally worn by men as dress shoes, the style has been re-worked in to sneakers, boots and even fly ladies shoes.
