    Gravity Pope has a decent selection of Maliseets. Not sure of your location and if you're trying to find a US domestic source to avoid a long shipping wait though... Oh, and Whatev123's comment as well:

    (wasn't aware Oconnells carried the maliseet now).

    That's a really good question. I also wonder why there is a $30 price fluctuation between brown and black. Interesting.

    In all honesty, GP carries some nice stuff, in a lot of sizes -- but after my last dealing with them (a pair of quoddy's about 1 year ago), I won't order again, unless they have something that I really have no choice. I know when shipping from CA to the US it is out of retailers hands in terms of shipping times, as a package can sit at US Customs for however long, but I just wasn't totally feeling this place and their customer service. I'm sure it's an entirely different story if you're north of the border though.

    My guess: (1) Gravity Pope's prices are in Canadian Dollars and (2) the Maliseets they sell appear to be lined, which will add to the cost.

    Blackbird, in Seattle, offers several Quoddy models, including the Maliseet (lined, US$250): http://www.blackbirdballard.com/Quoddy_Mens.html

    i dont think there is much of a difference between cad and us...maybe the cad is .998 vs 1. and i believe all of the maliseets are lined, so that is so weird. i wonder if its a typo on their end... i forgot about blackbird. usually there stock goes fairly quickly. edit: maybe their prices include shipping. that is the only thing i can come up with.

    One thing to point out is that Tres Bien is offering free worldwide shipping through the end of November:

    Being Quoddy's run TTS, almost eliminating the chance of needing to return the shoes -- it's a nice option to consider. They have two maliseets and also the new vibram sole offerings..

    they might, but i would not try. you need something that is designed for extreme cold. quoddy would be able to answer for sure, so e-mail them.

    yes, in my experience all quoddys are true to size (measured size).

    Man, these shoes are amazing. Recieved my new Quoddys today and the construction is just waay beyond my previous Sperrys.

    Its actually kinda uncomfortable right now since the Chromexcel is pretty stiff, but I'm sure it'll break in nicely.

    While Tres Bien has free worldwide shipping this month, i've found it cheaper to buy from them than anywhere in the USA (i'm in Australia).

    Got Peanut Grizzly w/ black sole bluchers for $215 shipped.

    Just checking sizing wise:
    I wear a 10 in vans, 42 in CPs...

    I would be a 9.5 in the blucher mocs?

    I want to order these bad boys.

    You can go through this thread and read a million opinions on sizing up, sizing down, tts, etc etc etc

    but my suggestion is to purchase these shoes true to size. I am exact size 9, and all quoddy's I own (4 pair, i think, of different models), all fit the exact same.

    If you're between sizes, size down. There is a tad bit of stretch in the leather. But do not count on getting a 1/2" of stretch from these shoes. But better a tad bit too small (and hope for some stretch) than too big. Nothing worse than shoes that have ankle slip, imo.

    In summary (and some may disagree), but as a quoddy owner for several years and several makes, they run TTS. across the board. (Note: this doesn't apply to the new Vibram offerings as I haven't tried those on, but I would imagine they too are TTS).
