Our story

Presentation

our_story_banner-min

And here is a true and quite romantic story :

Gary and Emer Levy, an Anglo-Irish couple, having met in London and spent 14 years running their own restaurant, decided in 2004 to make a radical change to their lives.

They decided to move on a whim to Geneva (having previously enjoyed a family skiing holiday in the region) and make a radical career change. Moving from food to men’s shoes was about as extreme a change imaginable.

And so Brogue was born in 2005. The name Brogue was chosen because it is the name of a classic man’s shoe but also in Irish it means a strong regional dialect.

Move forward 16 years and Brogue has since moved to newer, contemporary premises. Brogue’s fine reputation has spread across Switzerland, Europe and beyond. It is now a reference for the finest European men’s shoe brands.

But equally renowned for professional and friendly service.

10 leading European brands are represented within our walls. Whilst such esteemed brands including John Lobb and Edward Green may represent the pinnacle of modern shoe making, we are equally proud of all the manufacturers we represent, notably Santoni and Crockett & Jones. The finest footwear from England, France, Spain, Italy and Portugal is available.

In 2016 an Angel descended from Heaven and Elena joined our team and is now more family than employee. Completing the line-up is our young apprentice Samy who joined last year.

We like to believe that we offer a total experience where caring service, sound advice and a myriad of related services, including shoe care and repairs are fully integrated. And of course, we are equally proud of our fine coffee and whisky collection.
