Quoddy Boat Shoes MEGATHREAK - Page 125

post #1861 of 2038
For retirement, my folks bought a small canal barge in Europe and have invited my wife and I over whenever we can make it... and I've lived within half an hour of the Chesapeake Bay for most of my life. I figured it was time to own some deck shoes. Problem: I'm a 14AA. Solution: Quoddy custom, in a four-eyelet deck boot made from blue CXL because why the hell not. Just showed up today; I'm looking forward to breaking them in on a striper charter on Black Friday. They fit a little too tight with socks and perfect without.

Check out three posts up about how they made me some size 14 shoes. service@quoddy.com proved most helpful.

Oh woh somehow I completely missed that. Was there any upcharge or anything for the custom size?

Refurbishing was $35, plus the cost of shipping to them, which ran about $5 for me. So maybe around $40 total. Return shipping from Quoddy is free.

Nah, it was pretty cool. Here's how it went --

We would like to assist you in constructing a pair of boat shoes. Would you be able to mail in a tracing of your feet for sizing? We would need them posted in the mail not emailed or faxed.
...
I will be looking for the tracings.
...
There is no charge for customizing a shoe just based on size; there may be an upcharge for things like lining etc.
...
You may place the order under the Chukka on the website and just note in the customization box that would like the 4 eyelet Deck Boot in Chromexcel Navy, White Deck Sole, Glove Lining, Nickel Eyelets, Navy Laces and Natural Hand Sewing. I will go in and make the adjustment along with the size needed on the order before the spec sheet is submitted into production.

Once they got my foot tracings and got back to me with sizing confirmation, it took just twenty days from placing the order to having the shoes on my doorstep. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Going to send a few pairs in soon I think. Did they let you customize sole?

Just tried on the quoddy bluchers at jcrew. Was surprised I fit in an 8 right out of the box - they were unbelievably comfortable! I've been known to wear a EEE on occasion in a more structured shoe, and I got an 8E in Rancourt as the 8 was super tight.

Can I assume id wear an 8 in all Quoddy?

Is there a way to see their customization options? Do I just email them if I am.interested?

I'd recommend emailing Quoddy with any questions that you have before ordering; they got back to me pretty quickly when I inquired about a custom pair of chukkas a month or two ago. FYI: sizing is not consistent with all styles of Quoddy footwear, so it would be a good idea to let them know that an 8 D blucher fit you nicely and ask for any sizing recommendations they may have if you're considering a custom order in a different style. My 8.5 D Maliseet oxfords, for example, fit me pretty well and are quite comfortable but are on the roomy side both in length and width whereas I had to size up to a 9 D in the chukka. The chukkas definitely run narrower than the oxfords (and the 9 chukka is still a much snugger fit on me than the 8.5 oxford). I hope that helps!

post #1871 of 2038
just an FYI. I posted a few months back that the stitching came undone in my Maliseets (less than a year old) and Quoddy offered to make me a new pair. I sent back an 11D and asked if they'd make me an 11E. When they sent the 11E pair, it fit much smaller than the 11D I originally had, and they said that other customers had complained of sizing changes, too, though they couldn't explain why.

They offered to make me another pair, so I asked them make me a 12E, and it fits the same as the 11D i had last year.

So it seems Maliseet sizing can be off by as much as a full size depending on when they were made.

does anyone know if you can exchange custom orders? i just got some deck chukkas and they are just slightly roomy. they are the same size as my bluchers, but i think i need a half size down.

i will give props to the customer service so far though. took maybe 2 weeks from order placed to the time they showed up at my door, maine to seattle. they even threw in some free coasters.

Will suede stretch the same way as chromexcel leather? I purchased a pair of suede Quoddy boat shoes online in size 8.5...I fit perfectly in a size 8 in the bluchers, but I found the 8.5 boat shoes in suede on a really good sale, so I figured i'd try them out (I can return them if need be). I can't decide if I should keep them. The sole is very comfortable and I have plenty of room for my toes, but the top of my foot and sides of my feet are very very snug. Can I expect them to stretch substantially over time? Or does suede not stretch substantially?
