    Quoddy x 3sixteen in a rare colourway, only 20 were produced of the black on black.
    These were released through epaulet (there pictures do not do them justice)

    I've never seen the chukka with a crepe sole, is it even possible?

    To follow up on my experiences. I finally cancelled my order.

    May 8: Wrote to Quoddy asking if they could do shoes in burgundy chromexcel. Also said I had heard concerns about significant delays (longer than the quoted 4-6 weeks) and declining quality. Asked for reassurance that this would not occur.

    May 18: I had heard no reply, and I followed up with an email that stated that basically they had confirmed my concerns and I was no longer interested.

    May 18: Received an email within 13 minutes apologizing and that "what you have heard the issues of customer service have been corrected."

    June 3: Reluctantly placed order. Was given a July 15 ship date (which would be at the end of the 4-6 week period cited on the website.

    July 31: Still no shoes received. Cancelled my order.

    Looks like the service is still atrocious. Kind of glad it didn't work out considering all the bad examples of quality I am hearing about, the ridiculous prices, and the awful delays.

    I've said it before, but other than making somewhat comfortable footwear, Quoddy is nothing special. The quality is way worse than anything I have seen from Sperry.

    Couldn't agree more. When I picked up the boat shoes back when they were 100 and something dollars, I waited months for them....only to have them come with one sole not stitched on properly and the other shoe not looking proportional. After having them send me a new pair after another month or so, I found that the boat soles crack after a few months with regular wear. If your not going to wear often, they will be fine, but if you wear them regularly the soles will crack in no time.

    So then what's the best value at this point? Sperrys?

    Don't hear many complaints about Russell but their styling doesn't appeal to me as much as Quoddys.

    Are the Grizzly boots poorly made? I've had them on my wishlist for a long time.

    I've held both in the hand and sperrys look/feel like garbage.

    Would rather have a loose stitch and better materials including leather that feels like leather along with a better shape with quoddys.

    Had a pair of Sebago boat shoes before my Quoddy bluchers and I will never go back to Sebago. The Quoddy's blow them away in all areas.

    +1, there's been qc issues noted with Quoddy all along, but it's really a different animal altogether than sperrys. Not to say Sperrys don't have their place.

    Not sure how long these have been up at quoddystore.com, but woah at the price.

    Grizzly boot w/ vibram sole--$400.

    I have to agree with this as well. The difference in materials is night and day. If you are buying shoes that you want to have for a long time the price you pay for better materials is worth it. A loose stitch can be repaired.
