Lately I’ve been looking for an alternative to the boat moc, which I have been wearing for as long as I can remember. I needed something semi-casual, which would look great dressed up or dressed down. After scouring the internets, I think I’ve finally found what I’ve been looking for…

The Charlie Plus Brogue by JShoes are the perfect fit for my criteria. An affordable brogue which can be worn with a nice pair of jeans, or dressed up with a nicer pair of trousers. The Charlie Plus is currently available in Brass (pictured) and Chocolate Suede. Opt for the suede option only if you’re comfortable going slightly more casual. If you’re looking for something to stand out, try to mix and match with colored laces.

This brogue is also styled with a rubber traction sole, helping you avoid that awkward “breaking-in” period you get with traditional wooden soled brogues. At an affordable $190, these brogues are a great value for your hard-earned money.
