    Well the pair in the photo is a size 9 (they're pretty TTS), and it's too small for anyone in the store (much to our chagrin). If you can fit them, I'll send em your way...for a small fee, of course. [​IMG]
    totally. im a 8.5 or 9 in yuekten, oak street and quoddy. they might fit ... thoughts? thanks!

    If that's the case, I think they'll work splendidly. I wear a 12 in both Quoddy and Arrow, so you should be good. They're unlined so I'm pretty sure you'd like to wear a good pair of socks with them to help cushion the fit.

    Just ordered a pair of the two eyelet with a crepe sole over the phone. almost choked when he said $144.17. I had already resigned to spending $270 plus shipping from oi polloi and would have if i didn't need to special order a US7. i wrote oi polloi and they said that they couldn't do special single orders from arrow. then i found this thread and learned i could call and get the crepe sole.

    super excited. kinda want to get a blonde/tan pair now...i'll wait until i get these in "6 weeks or less." if i order another pair, i won't worry as much about the issue of not being able to resole them...i am still interest in pair of chukkas or oxfords from quoddy with the crepe sole but i really like the minimalist look of the sole stitched to the bottom of the shoe and not around the edges.

    if anyone has more pictures of their arrows, especially some who have gotten some love, that'd be awesome.

    I have a pair of the lined boots that I wore most of the winter in Wisconsin. They were completely waterproof from the start and have been really comfortable. If you like the style, probably one of the best winter shoe around, especially for the price.

    So...here is the $150 question: Do the double soled mocs have any usefulness in the city? I can't really get a straight answer (though I did see a guy wearing them on 9th ave in Chelsea the other day.) I don't really want to buy a pair of glorified bedroom slippers that I can't wear outside. Would they just get permanently mucked up by walked around the subway stations?

    the guy won't resole the crepes but will the double-leather. though i'm sure you can find a cobbler to get you a new crepe sole. take that for what it's worth

    big three days in my life: i got a pair of the arrow 2 eye crepe sole mocs and a pair of the oakstreet beefroll loafters. they are both amazing but, at half the price, i am way more enthused about the arrows. can't wait to break in. My quoddys are going to the back burner...


    very tempted to scoop these and the the lighter brown. love the crepe sole but after seeing how thick arrow leather is, i'm intrigued about the double sole...

    how is the construction on arrows? are they comfortable w/o any lining? i like that style above as a throw on pair for a quick trip to the grocier. although i wish they extended the eyelet quarter a little higher. it almost has a unfinished look in that pic.

    They are comfortable right out of the box. While thick in appearance and hand, the leather is soft and rubbery and thus comfortable without socks immediately. They are a great deconstructed alternative to more sartorial options.

    i agree. the construction is amazing. the leather is soft but firm. these aren't going to flop over. my only wish is that the were cut a little lower around the ankles. if (when) i order the blonde ones, i'll ask if he can take a quarter inch off. i'm sure once they break in this won't be an issue but otherwise they are amazingly comfy right out of the box. super dope shoes.

    I can't speak for the Arrow double sole mocs, but I have the Quoddy double sole ring mocs and stylish looking though they are (IMHO), they are in no way comfortable for long city walks. This can be mitigated somewhat if you wear fairly thick/cushy socks, but w/o socks, the leather soles don't provide much cushion. Crepe soles are another story comfort wise, but for me the double leather soles look much better.

    ^^Thanks, Bob. That's what I suspected, unfortunately. I agree that the double soles look better than the crepe ones. They'd probably make killer driving shoes, though. Too bad I don't have a car.

    Any interested in a once-worn pair of their two eye mocc toe shoes with double soles? They look exactly like in the photos a few pages back. I got a pair in size 9D but they don't fit well. I wore them out in my back porch before making sure they fit me and now can't return them. My price would be $110 shipped.

    You can certainly wear these outside -- the soles seem to be hard wearing. They will last for quite a while fore they'd need a resoling. Wearing them on wet roads would accelerate the wear but even then these will last a long time. Socks are a must if you are wearing them outside though, as Bob says there is not much cushioning. However, the insole will conform to your feet after a few wears and it should be very comfortable.
