Quoddy Boat Shoes MEGATHREAK - Page 52

was more referirng to all the ''collabs'' left and right though, unless Quoddy has become some big ass manufacturer overnight.

Yep quoddy seems to forgotten they were nearing extinction and have become money hungry.

Man the UO collaboration / sellout really ends the SF honeymoon every time

Does anyone know if quoddy can make a custom order? not in terms of size, but material. I noticed that suede is an option for their chukka, but not for their blucher. I really wanted those SW suede bluchers w/ the brick sole, but I slept on em and my size is now gone.

I'm desperate if you can't tell.

People on here are saying half size big but SW is saying true to size.
I may just order and return if necessary.

you probably have the answer by now, but in case others are wondering: true to size.

I was wondering this myself. It says right on their website to contact them if you have any requests. Give them an email and see if it can be done.

Silly noob not knowing anything about business focusing on short term profits not long term repercussions.

+1 The Americana market will go here, but will stay in Japan. They are ontop of the moc game and really should be planning long term to get over there, rather then derivative brands that have make believe history. Too bad they are just trying to milk it for all its worth while they can.

I too would question some of Quoddy's moves in the last year, but they are obviously trying to take advantage of the market and the current "trend" and who can really blame them. The fact is, even with UO collaborations, lame new soles available and copying other brands designs - coming up with simple combinations on the classic models like the Bluchers, Canoe Mocs, Boat shoes, Ring Boots etc can't really go wong. The leathers are great, they are super comfortable and as long as you order yours from a real shop you'll get them fast and be happy.

All fair points, however are the people that are going to stick with Americana when it isn't a big trend in a years going to get 'burnt' by Quoddy? I think that's what Jet was meaning, and I was getting at. The prices rises are kinda crazy. It's not as if the quality is getting better (correct me if I'm wrong) just that people suddenly want it more. When billykirk did collabs with UO it really soured it for alot of people. I think what Alden has done will be much more sustainable long term, building great relationships with retailers and the fans, allowing custom orders and facilitating them well etc etc I believe alot of people will still like Alden as they 'grow up' and get out of the fashion game.

I think some of you guys might be reading too much into the UO thing. If UO orders 30 pairs of a Quoddy shoe in custom style, how is that any different than when South Willard or Blackbird does the same? They won't really be introducing Quoddy to a larger audience (most UO consumers buy cheap shit), much like the Filson collab didn't change anything. Quoddy doesn't have a brand cache that's marketed as an "exclusive" brand (even if it is a pain in the ass to buy them sometimes), so I can't image long term repercussions here, assuming the quality stays the same.
post #779 of 2063
I don't care what stores Quoddy chooses to sell to - that has almost no bearing on whether I buy them or not. It just bothers me that the prices have doubled. In a couple years, when the former dunk collectors move on to something else, are old school New Englanders gonna spend $200 on a pair of mocs? At this point, I'd just as soon get a pair of $45 mocs from Minnetonka.
post #780 of 2063
So I emailed Quoddy and they got back to me within 20 minutes surprisingly. Anyways, according to this customer service rep, they CAN make a custom order...i.e. make a blucher w/ suede despite it not being listed as an option on their website.

anyone know then if the south willard collabo added anything else? besides the imprint of their name? was it a custom suede color?
