Glad you like them. Just more confirmation that their customer service is crap. Not only do they consistently miss deadlines, and seem to have declining quality, but they also seem to be deaf. I'm convinced now that I should go for Yuketen boat shoes - even if they are a bit pricier. Only problem is I can't find a pair in brown US size 11.5 (or the equivalent, which I'm not sure of for Yuketen's). Guess I should start edumucating myself on the Yuketen forum. But as of now, I don't think I'd go for Quoddy's unless they were sub $50 now. good luck finding your correct yuketen size, its so fucking fun!
