I don't as it stretches leather too much. Would need a flat tree like a cleverly tree but its still a bit too big IMO

What leather? Quoddy stretches a ton I go full size down from my standard size

Has anybody ordered these or have a picture of them worn?

I found a pair of the suede boat shoes from J Crew on eBay for a good price. My only issue is sizing. They are a size 8D and I'd like to wear them sockless. I wear an 8 in new balance, Nike, and j crew Macalisters. The only thing I size down in is Sperry Top Sider boat shoes. I wear a 7.5 in those. Anyone know how these compare to Sperry Boat Shoes? Think I will be okay with the 8?

You should be OK with the size 8. I'd recommend getting some terry cloth insoles to wear if you go sock less. They're like $7 on amazon, washable, and keep your feet fresh!

Beautiful. For the price, I think I'll take the gamble. Thanks so much!

jordanwalkert, I wear the same sizes in the shoes you posted and I wear a 7 in Quoddys. I have maliseets, bluchers, and beef roll loafers. All 7s.

I do if they get particularly wet.

Well I have a pair, in suede. What are you asking, specifically? Super comfortable, I'd go TTS or size down 1/2, esp. if you want to go sock less or use thin socks. I find this style to be most versatile -- little dressier than low mocs but not quite as dorky (IMO) as boat shoes or bluchers. (Maybe I should say, "more rugged" rather than less dorky...)

A data point re: sizing. Reading through this whole thread, the majority of folks sized down a half for the blucher with the camp sole, so that's what I did. When I received the shoes, they were definitely short in the sole. Not unwearable, but I knew immediately that they were the wrong size (for me). Sent them back and exchanged for my regular size, and two weeks later I got shoes that fit.

Bottom line: TTS worked for me. This is my first pair of Quoddy's, so I can't comment if there was a change in their sizing (which appears to be the case, according to the comments in this thread).

I am a pretty standard 9D, wear 9D in Alden Plaza and Leydon, 8.5D in Barrie. My standard summer shoes are Vans, and I wear 9.5. My 9.5 Vans are the same length as the Quoddy's in a 9D. The only pair of boat shoes I have are Paraboot in a UK8 and they are the same length as the Quoddy's.

Anyone have experience with Quoddy's resoling with chromepak soles? I know they offer it, but can't find anyone who has posted their results. With the wear on one of my Dawson mocs, I know it'll be needed within the next year or two. Basically, my right shoe's sole is really much more scraped up than the left, by a long shot. You can't even see the stitching on the toe-portion anymore, it's been engulfed by the leather. Isn't torn through or anything, I think it's just sort of been folded over. I'm 99% certain it's from the gas pedal of my car. Considering I walk on concrete, raw wood, sand and dirt in them, the left shoe is looking just splendid though, not a large amount of wear or tear on it.

What gas pedal are you using? Drive in my quoddies always with no issues
post #1948 of 2042
Probably a difference in form. I keep my right heel on the ground and pivot to press. Some people use the flat of their foot. I think that the rubbing against the pedal, especially using the toe, would cause wear. Otherwise I just have different quality chromepak, but I think it's the pedal. The rest of the sole isn't wearing differently.

PSST,

What are your (all of you) opinion regarding the Blucher w/ Camp Sole? In terms of build quality, sex, etc. 

Also, does anyone have any experience with the "glove leather lining" and  do you feel that it adds any value to your overall experience of the shoe? 

The "glove leather lining" is awesome. Some feel you can't wear these without socks. I'd go in the opposite direction. Put a pair of terry cloth insoles in those bad boys and you'll be able to go sockless in the most comfortable shoes!

I own Quoddy camp mocs from ASOS that are lined and the Quoddy Boat Shoes with Brown soles from O'Connells that both get a lot of wear.

Personally I'm not a huge fan of the Blucher due to the pinking around the apron. That's a personal choice obviously. You need to buy what you like!

glove lining is really soft and fine with or without socks
