    anyone know whats the sizing like on the current Quoddy bluchers or canoe mocs? i remember for a while there was confusion because sizing changed or something... anyway, i wear a 9.5 in clarks desert boots. any help would be appreciated

    Also interested in sizing for the canoe mocs. My usual dress shoe size is 12, and same for most other shoes. I wear 13 in Adidas though, and 11.5 in chucks. I want to wear the canoe mocs sans socks. Any advice?

    does anyone know of any retailers that currently stock the brown boat shoe with the white deck sole?. asos and endclothing both have them, but they both stock UK sizes and not US ones. sadface

    Bought the Quoddy x Albam Oxford Maliseets and the stitch in the lining that goes down the heel came undone after about three wears. Very odd. Albam sent them straight back to Quoddy for a fix - natch - but I'm guessing it'll be ages before I see them back.

    Anyone else have something similar happen?

    ^Quoddy quality has really gone down the tubes. I know so many people are hesitant to say that, but it's a fact. Crooked stitching at the heel on the outside has practically become a mainstay on Quoddy among many other imprefections

    I have a pair of deck chukkas that are beginning to have the same problem. Before I even wore them I noticed the horizontal stitch on the heel which closes the leather was very crooked. I'm just gonna take them to a cobbler eventually for a quick fix rather than send them back to Quoddy.

    Quoddy simply doesn't give a fuck anymore. My next order will be with Russell Mocassin, they're a company who knows how to keep their shit together.

    wow, so I read the last i dunno 3-4 pages (working my way back) and I changed my mind about trying to track down a pair of ring boots on the bay.

    I've never seen a pair of quoddy deck shoes before this weekend, so I was surprised to see how shitty the quality was after hearing nothing but praise on styleforum. Crooked stitching and lots of loose threads (and certain areas clearly coming undone) on every pair I saw. They were, however, very comfortable.

    A quick note on Quoddy and inflation/internet phenomenon:

    Today, I ran across the invoice from my Quoddy Canoe Mocs purchase, which was made on March 7, 2007. Brown Chromexcel leather.

    Price was $75.00 shipped. Same shoe today is $209.

    I love them to death, but I'm not sure I'd pay $209 for another pair should these bite the dust in the forseeable future.

    If they had 2007 prices they would be out of business.

    They're going up again anyway.
