Claymore Brogues American made Ghillie Brogues
Introducing the ONLY American made ghillie brogue currently in production! This top of the line ghillie brogue is designed by and exclusively available from Claymore Imports in Scottsdale, Arizona. (Kilt Rental USA is owned and operated by Claymore Imports). The top three crucial elements of any high-end shoe: Comfort Appearance Durability The Claymore Brogues have all three crucial elements. Combine these elements with quality American craftsmanship and a 30 day money back guarantee and you've got yourself a winner! Made in USA At Claymore Imports, we want to keep the Scottish culture alive by importing Scottish made goods. When it comes to ghillie brogues, most of the outsourcing has gone to Mexico, China, and Pakistan. Finding a ghillie brogue manufacturer in Scotland is no longer a possibility. We hope you will join us in our efforts to support American manufacturing and bring jobs back to America. 30 Day Guarantee We are giving you 30 days to test our shoes to make sure you like them. If you are not satisfied with what we have delivered, send them back within 30 days of your purchase for a full refund. The customer is responsible for all shipping costs involved. Returned shoes must not be damaged in any way. Normal wear from walking on pavement is acceptable. We will also make size exchanges. Hybrid We are calling this shoe a hybrid because we have combined two types of brogues into one quality shoe. This shoe is so comfortable that you can march in a parade and yet so stream-lined, you can wear them to a wedding and not look like you are wearing combat grade army shoes. Truly, the best of both worlds. Comfort PORON is the number one choice in shock-absorbing foams for many high-end shoe manufacturers. It is the "Grand Marshall" of comfort and durability which makes it perfect for footbeds inside shoes. It is more durable than other foam types and it stays cool unlike memory foam which can get very hot on your foot. Our shoes have a full length perforated PORON insert as well as a high-density urethane heel cup. The inserts are glued in and are not meant to be removed, although, with a little coaxing, it could be removed. Durability The lightweight, flexible Polyurethane soles of our brogues are ideal for competition bagpipers who wear their brogues consistently on hot asphalt and wet grass. No Steel Cleat Our brogues do not have a steel cleat in the heel as so many ghillie brogues do. The reason for this decision is simple: most people are opposed to it as it creates a "clippity clop" sound while walking and they can also get rusty when exposed to damp grass. Sizes We currently carry sizes 7.5 through 15 with no half sizes after 13 (men's). These shoes run large so we recommend bumping one half size down (smaller) from what you would usually wear. In other words, if you normally wear a size 11, we would recommend a size 10.5.
