Mid last year I was approached by Caroline (director and designer behind Frankie4Footwear) to have a sneak peek at the AW17 collection that is currently in store.
I was met with beautiful new season boots as well as some new additions to the Frankie4 family. One of them being a brogue.
This was the first time that Caroline had introduced a brogue into the Frankie4footwear family. It was then that Caroline said not only would it be the first brogue but, it needed a name and wanted to know if she could name it ALEX after well … me.
I jumped at the chance and said yes, yes, yes!
The hard thing though, was keeping it a secret from everyone for the last 9 months until now.
Say hello to ALEX.
She comes in two colour ways, champagne and black and is the most stylish brogue you will see around. Not only does she look good, she comes jammed pack with all of the Frankie4 goodness including:
- Podiatrist & Physiotherapist designed removable Functional Footbed
- Heel support, cradle and cushioning
- Arch support
- Forefoot cushioning
- Patented Custom Fit Pack* to fit wide, standard and narrow feet
- Durable rubber sole with an additional 4mm of cushioning under the footbed.
Alex also has:
- Leather laser cut upper
- Leather lined foot beds
- Leather lined
If you are new to the brogue game fear not, I have styled ALEX 3 different ways to show you just how versatile she can be.
Be a Flasher (an ankle flasher that is)
Showing off some or all of this part of your body will make you look in proportion. Dress, skirts, ankle grazers and cropped pants will go great with ALEX.
Go Masculine or Feminie
The ALEX brogue can be worn two different ways. Add floaty skirts or dresses for a more feminie look or grab an oversized coat and pants for a look that will ooze edge.

I shot these looks at Bedouin Brew which is based in the heart of industrial Rocklea, Brisbane. Bedouin Brew is an open warehouse that welcomes friends and strangers to enjoy Brisbane’s finest coffee, surrounded by luscious indoor and outdoor plants. Bedouin Brew is open every day and serves coffee and delicious things to go with it.
Will you be wearing brogues for the season ahead? More importantly, will you be wearing the ALEX?
