I'm traveling right now.  Will post some photos when I can.  I wanted to take some NIB pics, but alas they will have some wear on them by the time they go up.

I'm pretty happy with them.  Easy off and on at the airport.  Comfortable too.

Mine just switched from awaiting fulfillment to shipped! Of course, today is President's Day, so unless it actually shipped on Saturday, it won't really ship until tomorrow. Ordered in the afternoon of the 6th, so that's 11 days/7 business days turn around. Pretty damn good, considering that mine was fairly well customized (Dawson's with a canoe moc saddle, natural chromepak upper and sole).

They look great!! I think that is the Cavalier Wine but I am not sure which blue that is? How do they fit?

post a pic too wdahab once you get yours

 

mine were labeled as cavalier red and cavalier navy on their website. I really like the color combination on them. The size fit fine, a tad too long. But I couldnt go any smaller. If i get another 1/2 size down then i wont be able to wear socks at all. I know that my intention is to have it barefoot. But since there is a tiny area (between the first eyelet and the last stitches) that scratches my feet...so i decided to wear sock for the first week until the leather get more soft. The shoes acutally appear kind of wide. Not that it fits wide but it looks wide. it looks about 1/4 wider than Sperry or timberland boat shoes. So if someone looking for a narrow, skinny/slim looking shoes than this wont be it. I wonder does Maliseet or blucher will be narrower. Overall quality is excellent. Love the smell of the leather. I worn them for few hours and the red has already shown some aging. It has already lighten in some area so i trust that the cavalier red will turn out very beautifully. The crepe sole feels comfortable too. The only cons right now is that i request for a pair of light brown laces same as they put on the sheepskin grizzly boot but they gave me a black laces.

 

anyone can let me know how to post more pics? i dont want it to be an attachment only.

My new Quoddy Dawsons, in a size 9EEE. Ordered Feb 6, received, Feb 21 (delayed one day due to President's day, otherwise it would have been 2 weeks on the dot). First impression: Wow.

These are beasts. The leather is Horween natural Chromepak, and makes most bridle leather feel thin and flimsy. I was told it's 10oz thick minimum, and boy does it feel it. This absolutely isn't a normal boat shoe, this is like a tank on my feet. The sizing is absolutely perfect, length and width. Took just a little bit of pressure to get my feet in and then pop, right in. They are like gloves already, and I think as the leather warms up they'll turn even more into gloves.

The saddle looks great, just enough extra decoration to really make this my own. Didn't cost any extra, and I found that custmore support was very helpful in making sure I got exactly what I wanted. I think it adds a lot to making this shoe not look like a pair of slippers.

As a note, when I was looking for a pair of mocs, originally, I saw lots of differing opinions/questions about which to get. I originally got the Townview Mocs, which are, indeed great, but are a different beast altogether. I found them insubstantial, not comparable to these (but more in an apples and oranges kind of way, not in a better or worse way). Those are soft, buttery leather, maybe comparable to Quoddy's grizzly mocs, but certainly not to these. The Quoddy website just doesn't clarify how thick these are, that these are not just natural CXL leather. That said, I'm fairly sure these will age like natty CXL, and maybe even look better once I see how it creases.

Of course pics:

Other thoughts: The inner sole is a full leather innersole, which I find preferable to Rancourts half inner sole.
I wear a 9EEE in most Allen Edmonds, so for people looking for sizing advice, looks to be about right.
I haven't decided yet how I'm going to oil these. I prefer Obenauf's but that will darken them. I'm not against oil making my shoes darker, but I'm wondering if people have experience with this, and how people handle this kind of leather sole (which probably needs more treading than an oak leather sole.
I am counting my blessings that I work in the kind of finance firm that is just laid back that I can wear these to work any day when I don't need a suit (99% of the time)

As an update, decided to go the Neatsfoot oil (as Nick Horween suggests for CXL leathers) and Obenauf's LP on these. I'm in the "natural leather is a blank slate, and needs to be treated" camp. The Neatsfoot didn't change the color much at all. We'll see what the LP does. I'm sure that it'll be preferable to salt/sand/water damage that's certain to occur around here.

I had to go a full size up from an 11 - 12

Newbie sizing help. I'm loving the Maliseet with vibram sole. I contacted Quoddy with my measurements but was given a size different than listed on their chart. A 10" length and 4.5" width looks like an 8 EE, but Quoddy emailed me a recommended 7.5EE. Any suggestions?

Got some Boat Moccasins on the way. Does anyone use Shoe tree's with their boat shoes?
