    Now that's what you call a shoe...


    Wow, I like the navy with the gum sole much more than I like it with the red sole. For some reason I'm not really a fan of this red brick sole on anything else besides a white or tan buck. I think people are overusing it.

    Thanks for the help. I'm having a hard time getting an accurate idea of the colors, particularly for the peanut:

    Here's what they look like on tresbien:

    And here's what they look like on winn perry (much less attractive IMO):

    The brown chromexcel looks really nice with the lighter sole, but a little less unique:

    To be honest I think the second linked peanut photo is more accurate. I acknowledge the picture may look less appealing but see the shoe in person if you can, I like the look of the grizzly leather

    EDIT - i think these are the most accurate pics

    Just received my Quoddy navy suede bluchers from Winn Perry. I like them a lot though at first I was put off by the feel of the suede. It feels like canvas almost, rough and not nice and soft like Im used to. However I assume they chose this suede as water won't damage it. Another thing is the arch support they have in there. There's a ball in the middle of the show that juts into your foot, I happen to have high arches so it works out fine. But I cant imagine having normal or low arches and finding it comfortable.

    I got a pair of the black bluchers with gum sole from Inventory Stockroom recently. Been wearing them non-stop since.

    They're lined on the inside and fit true to size.

    I wear 11 in clarks and got a 11.5. Might be just a tad too large though, however I haven't tried on a size 11 so I can't compare.

    I wish Quoddy would hurry up and ship South Willard their restock shipment... I've been watching for those brown suede brick soled bluchers for awhile now.

    Does anyone have any strong opinions on lined versus unlined on the bluchers? Somehow unlined seems more "authentic" to me for a casual shoe.

    tIm moving to DC in August and I want a boot I can use when it starts to rain and possibly snow there. My first instinct was to just get an LL Bean bot http://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/35487...tn&cat4=505557 http://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/33172...tn&cat4=505558 But then I thought Quoddy might make something. http://quoddystore.com/catalog/produ...products_id=41 http://quoddystore.com/catalog/produ...products_id=44 Im not really clear on why those two shoes cost anything different, but would those work for DC weather? I realize DC isn't ridiculously rainy but I want my feet to remain dry if it does start to rain. Im not a big fan of the big hunk of rubber on the grizzly boots but the new vibram soles which will hopefully come out soon look pretty reasonable. Of course beyond this Im also considering an Alden Indy but I feel like those wont stack up to weather like the above will

    I have some navy suede bluchers and I wish they were lined. Solely for the fact that wearing them without socks is quite uncomfortable.
