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. 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.
