Rogues’ New Mules

Clockwise from top: Cosmic Red, £165; Cosmic Black, £165; Pomme Gris, £185; Cosmic Mint, £165 – all roguesshoes.com

Brand new next week from fab British brand Rogues are these snazzy slip-on loafers. They come in three shades – red, mint and black – all made from softest suede with a ‘cosmic’ finish. If you’re not familiar with the brand, you can read more about them here, as I’ve been a fan since the very beginning! The heels on these loafers are almost too high for this flats fanatic but I wanted to show you anyway as I think they’re amazing for party season. For a slightly lower heel, try the classic style which this season comes with pom-pom laces. Cute as hell. Available to pre-order now; shipping from November 7th.

Weber Hodel Feder’s amazing Velcro brogues

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen some incredible multi-coloured versions of these shoes on my feed when I stumbled across them at Paris Fashion Week. Those particular shoes aren’t available just yet (I will let you know when they are!) but I wasn’t really aware of the brand before, so I thought I would tell you about it. The signature style of Weber Hodel Feder is Velcro brogues and I LOVE them! I’m particularly taken with the white ones as they come with a gum coloured crepe sole. Divine.

News about me!

Some of you may have heard that the magazine I work for as Fashion Features Editor – my day job! – is closing. I’ve had an amazing time working at InStyle for the last three years, but as there is no longer a print edition I am leaving. It’s very sad…but it means I am going to work on En Brogue full time. Which is very exciting! So you’ll be getting far more content every week from me and I’ll be able to keep a much closer eye on the flat shoes world. I wouldn’t be able to do this without you lovely lot reading this blog so I wanted to take the opportunity to say a big fat THANK YOU!

  1. Love your choices but I have an arthritic right big toe and therefore need a wider fitting. Would be really really helpful if
    you could note when tis choice is available please?

  2. Hello. Love the idea of velcro brogues. And good luck with going full time with En Brogue. I just had a quick query – now that you’ve redesigned the site is there any way still to see it with dark text on a light background? Only I can’t really read the light text on the dark background as it is now. And some of it seems to have gone very small and the headers (En Brogue book | En Brogue Illustrations etc) are really tiny and get hidden as I scroll down. And I do want to keep reading 🙂

      1. Yay. Much better 🙂 Can read it again! Thank you.

        Though, fyi the headings at the top right are still small and end up being overlayed on top of the posts when I scroll down. Doesn’t really detract too much though and may be to do with my browser – suspect it’s a bit old now.
