Vanishing Elephant – Gourley Brogue Creeper

We all know a good brogue; perforated quality leather with a fine lace up fastening – a classic shoe. For those less familiar with a creeper it used to be the footwear of choice for the steam punk clan, butit’s creeped its way back in fashion. Essentially a creeper is a stacked rubber sole high enough to create some edge to your style without making it look like you have a pair of orthopaedic shoes on. The Gourley Brogue Creeper from Vanishing Elephant is a genius hybrid of the two designs. The thick sole with coloured inlay adds a relaxed vibe to the shoes, complementing the co-ordinating laces, softening the often formal brogue style. The 100% leather upper and stacked sole could also help keep your feet dry and out of puddles, so a practical plus there too. $280 USD
