Scottish walking shoe. Ghillies are black leather shoes worn tradtionally in the Scottish highlands. They are made without tongues to allow moisture to escape should the wearer tread in a puddle or wet spot. The laces are very long and are usually tied around the ankle or calf. Also called "ghillie-brogues".

Ghillies also come in a soft-soled version and are used in dancing both Irish step and Scottish Highland styles. These shoes are essentially the same, but are made of much softer leather to allow ease of movement when dancing.
"Man, these new ghillies are killing my feet!"
