Probably one of the most elegant Brogues
Our Prestige is a sophisticated modern Brogue. Elegant in black calf hide and stunning in our antique brown leather.
Our bespoke shoes Prestige are shown here in our exclusive antique calf hide
Our antique calf hide is produced in a special vegetable dye process exclusively for J Adler and will darken once you start polishing the shoes, while developing a beautiful patina.
Created in the 18th Century for farmers, "brogs" were shoes perforated with holes to allow their footwear to drain water as they walked across wet farmland. Aristocrats admired the idea and made the shoes more aesthetic - closing the holes, but maintaining the perforated patterns. J. Adler broguing is all done by hand with great skill as seen on The Prestige, which features rosette broguing.
Bespoke shoes like our Prestige will vary in shape and seize since the last is crafted based on the shape and size of your feet to achieve a perfect fit. We of course aim to stay as close as possible to the model as shown. Colours may vary slightly since leather is a natural material and each hide will take slightly differently to the tanning process. Also, the settings of your Monitor may affect the colour as it appears.
