    awesome man! i'm waiting for him to do the brown trail oxfords w/ vibram sole. i'll be picking up those too!

    george is great and everything he's doing is heading in an awesome direction.

    they'll be the worth the wait man! enjoy!


    The brown trail oxfords with vibram sole are on the site now (but listed as on back order for six weeks).

    Also, I believe there has been some mention of additional models still coming this fall. Does anyone have details about that? I emailed them but have not heard anything (I imagine actually getting the business up and fulfilling orders is more pressing right now and rightfully a higher priority. So no big deal to me, but I am curious.)

    I almost ordered the brown vibram model but the wait really turned me off. I respect that they're just starting out and all but having had mediocre/bad experiences with direct ordering from Quoddy I'm a little skeptical of wait times for made-in-Maine moccs.

    Plus I want to wear the shoes now, not starting in mid-November. I can wait a couple months for a custom suit or shoes but for a standard size and model shoe I need my gratification a little closer to instant. I guess it shows how much I've come to expect as a consumer.

    Shoreman,

    I know the feeling of waiting. I'm about to pull the trigger on a brown pair of the trail oxfords because my navy ones have been so amazing thus far! It's definitely going to be worth the wait, and will be a really nice surprise when they finally arrive.

    I very nearly ordered some of these a month or so back, but I think I'm going to hold off until next spring. I'm interested to see where they go from here.

    Welcome George!

    How have things been going thus far? Seems like you've been getting some good press around the web.

    Thanks for the info. For sizing which Alden last are you referencing for the comparison?

    Does anyone know if back-ordered shoe charges appear on my bill when the shoe is in stock and ships, or as a pre-order?

    Since they don't ship for 6 weeks I was hoping my card will be charged once they hit stock.

    Right now I am assuming I will be charged right away. I'm going to hold off on placing the order until I get confirmation, can anybody who has placed a pre-order let me know?

    Also, I thought I had read these run TTS. Did you size down a full size or half size? If i'm pre-ordering I want to get this right the first time. I'm normally a 9.

    Thanks
