Haha. If I was in a position to buy these at full retail I would. For me personally it is hard to justify spending over $250 for a pair of shoes, but I think most of what Quoddy makes looks great and I'm sure their quality far exceeds anything put out by more commercialized brands like Sperry or Sebago. I'm glad we still make stuff in America.

yeah, i sound like a dick in that post. sorry...dont mean to. i just did some checking, try these guys: http://blog.leffot.com/page/5/ (scroll down to the bottom, you might be able to buy them at the discounted rate) they have a couple left if your an 8, 11.5 ,or 13 and if your into the blucher? also, i would do a search of their stocklist found on quoddys website. you might be able to find something i didnt.

yeah, i know what you mean. it is an "investment" but i can tell you they last for a LONG time. plus, resoling them is really quite cheap, so its nice. i wear mine every day and really beat them to death. the leather just gets better and better. this craft is really amazing if you think about it. so to me, the initial expense is easily justified because im not replacing shoes every couple of years. check around and you might be able to find something. but they rarely are found on sale. also check the for sale thread.

I actually really like the Quoddy blucher moc on sale Leffot blog website. Although what are the chances of them still having them if they went on sale in August? What is the sizing like of the blucher mocs?

may want to check and see. its possible... here is the deal with these shoes. they do run true to size. and the blucher is built very similar to their boat shoe so you will most likely be a D width. this particular shoe uses chromexel leather, which tends to have a little give in it. so, you want them to be tight but not to tight. they will not stretch out in the length (at least not much), but they obviously will in the width. so pay special attention to the fit on the width. i would order your dress shoe size and see how those feel.

Thanks for the information whatever123, you obviously know what you are talking about. I thought I would make a substantive contribution to this thread by asking about the Quoddy Penny Loafers that I did not see too much about on the other Quoddy thread. I really like these and might pull the trigger. Why are they not on the Quoddy website and only O'Connell's? Anyone have experience with these loafers?

post #82 of 108
ive only seen those loafers at o'connells. im not sure if it is a collab they did with them of what...but they showed that same shoe but in different colors in a recent show. and your right, they are not listed on the quoddy site. im sure they would make them for you though, but it is something you would need to e-mail them in order to do so. quoddy does a lot of collabs and they are open to making them again as long as the collab was not an exclusive or anything along those lines. another shoe you might like if your into that style is from oak street: http://oakstreetbootmakers.com/footw...ny-loafer.html

One of the best quoddy makeup's I've seen is the Maliseet in dark brown pebblegrain chromexcel with nickel eyelets and charcoal camp sole that Winn Perry did a while back. Alas, they are long sold out. But I've seen pics of them aged and they look amazing. Someone should bring this configuration back--it's a winner (although unlined would be preferable.)

Quick question - can anyone confirm how the Deck Chukka with Vibram sole fits? Thanks.
