A full brogue has a wing toe cap, with the toe cap, side and heel decorated with punched and serrated leather. Semi-BroguesA semi-brogue has a straight toe cap (as opposed to the wing cap of a full brogue) that is still decorated with punched and serrated leather. Semi-brogues are often referred to as half brogues. Quarter BroguesA quarter brogue has a straight toe cap (as opposed to the wing cap of a full brogue) with brogueing on the toe cap seam; but the toe cap itself is without decoration. Quarter brogues are also known as punched toe-cap shoes. Longwing BroguesBrogues come in the closed front Oxford style or the open front Derby (also known as Gibson) style. Longwings or Long Wing Brogues are available in the Derby style. Longwing Brogues were de rigeur in the 1970s, when they were also known in the UK as American Brogues; and, not unpredictably, in America they were known as English Brogues. Boots (all)A boot is simply a shoe that rises above the ankle.Boots had their heyday in the 19th Century: in the early part of the century most boots were knee high, such as Wellingtons; but by the latter part of the period half-boots were more common. By the 1920s, shoes had taken over from boots in formal roles; however boots remain very popular to the present day for casual wear.
