Quoddy Boat Shoes MEGATHREAK - Page 118

post #1756 of 2063
Aquaphor....saw those soles on the web yesterday as well. Send Quoddy an email and see if they are available. Quoddy does a great resole/refurb at a great price and they have been very quick in turnaround for the 2 I have sent back. I had a pair of dirty crepe sole boat shoes and had them sent back for a refurb. Had them put the low cost white boat sole on. They came out great. There is an extra seam where the crepe wrapped around but I think it looks good...they just filled it in with white stitching. Here is a quick before and after.

Before:

349

After:

263

um ... thats sortof the point with yuketen/quoddy/osb/etc ... you buy, wear and then you can resole with any sole you want for dirt cheap. for example, a real dress shoes resole will cost about $175 but a quoddy/yuketen resole cost about ~ $40 (including return shipping charges). plus i fucking love horween cxl leather ... its so comfortable.

Where can you send the yuketen for a resole... I just bought the country loafer.... And was thinking of changing the sole once worn out... But here it costs 150 from yuketen....

Sorry, I didn't completely read the post you were quoting. I have no idea what B. Nelson would charge for resoling a pair of Quoddys. The best thing is to call and ask.

I think it depends on the sole -- Vibram or camp sole should be the same, as the soles aren't made specially for Quoddy. My Brannock size is a 9.5 C or D, and I wear 9.5 in Quoddy camp sole mocs. If you want to wear with thick socks, I'd go up a half size. FWIW I have high arches and low volume feet. Sizing down might work with a leather sole, esp. if you are going to primarily wear them sockless and the leather will stretch a bit.

Wow. I just received my peanut Chukkas. Increadably comfortable.

After I ordered the Quoddys I bought a pair of blue soled top siders in FL for 1/3 the price and thought "no way the Quoddy's are worth $300". I was dead wrong. So soft and comfortable. I want another pair.

As for sizing. My banrock is 8E and I have a high instep. I usually wear 8-1/2D due to availability. The top siders are an 8D and fit well. I ordered the Quoddys in 8-1/2D and they fit well. Probably could have done an 8E but the length on these is fine. I was told by Quoddy they run a bit small compared to top siders.

Now I need to jump over to the Oak Street Bootmakers thread to figure out what size I need for their shoes.

Shot in the dark here, but I just took delivery of a pair of South WIllard's Evergreen bluchers (w/Gum sole), and am having 2nd thoughts now that I'm seeing the shoes in person. Unlike darker, more subdued Loden chromexcel (as used by OSB in a few models), these are seriously green - there's no mistaking that. Not the most versatile shoe, to be sure, but they're definitely striking and different. (Random side note - the quoddy box label lists the color as "Riviera Glace" - interesting, i wonder what Horween officially calls this color)261

My question - has anyone had experience with how the Evergreen chromexcel breaks in? Does it get significantly lighter in color? It's a beautiful shade to be sure, but I'm a bit concerned they might get super light in color once broken in, and look sort of clownish. Thanks folks.

Wow looks a bit different than the photos at SW, not sure if you'll be able to find any broken in pics, never seen that CXL before
