    Only because with hand-made, small-batch stuff like this, sometimes I wonder if it'll ever appear again.

    If I remember correctly, South Willard had the navy blue boat shoes last year too. Not to say it wasn't a good purchase (i'm considering it as well), just that its not a one time thing.

    I'd definitely call them and explain . . . they aim to please.

    here are some crappy pics... first picture shows it best.

    I placed my order over the phone to avoid these types of issues. Really disappointed. Should I call and exchange them?

    Yeah but their delivery times are long. Last year, SW had the navy with the camp sole, I believe, and I have the brown with the camp sole already. So I really wanted a second pair with a white sole, and I wanted a slightly more uncommon color, so it was the perfect fit.

    Is this what comes with being handmade?
    Yes and no. Imperfections are not uncommon with goods like this, but that's a pretty bad one. Definitely try to get them replaced.

    oconnell's are good folks so they'd probably want to make things right if you let them know.

    How lenient are they when it comes to custom orders? I would like some high tops made, a nice non-dressy casual shoe for a beater. I would basically like a high top boat shoe, similar to the ones they did for rogues gallery but like the one below, and probably in blue leather.

    these are my burgundy bluchers:

    I wear a 9.5 in Nike and a 9 in Allen Edmonds. I'd say say go a half-size down from your normal sneaker size probably. Quoddy will also help you with sizing if you need it.

    uhm you can acll up quoddy and get blue boat shoes too im sure...

    I actually inquired about this when I placed my order and they said they only made the navy version as a special request from South Willard and it wasn't available for custom orders.

    This I have no idea. You'd have to call and ask yourself.

    man, Ive been killing myself for a while trying to figure out what pair to get next. Really wanted the brown boat shoes with the white soles but O'connells is completely sold out of most of their styles, and even south willard is desperately lacking many 11 - 12 sizes. Ive looked through this thread, and it seems there are no other big internet sites that sell these shoes, aside from Quoddy themself, and I know I cannot handle waiting months for these!

    These are the same shoes right? Why does the shape of the red ones look so much better - different sizes, no stuffing in the blue ones? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    ^They're the same shoe.. Looks like they used a smaller size for the cinnamon pebbled ones, and the tongue of the blue shoe isn't standing up. Also the two pics are shot at different angles..

    waiting for the end of the month to get the navy boat shoes from SW

    SW said they are going to order burgundy ones for the spring/summer so for those who dont want to wait for quoddy to make them, thats an option

    i will probably pick up a pair of burgundy ones mid summer as well

    Any specific time frame on when SW may get the burgundy's? Ive been looking to get a second pair for a while, might have to hold out for burgundy.

    Was just wondering...I don't see many people who opted for the leather liners, most of them are unlined. Anyone here ever gotten them with the leather lining? They advertise it as being "more comfortable", was wondering if there is any truth to this. I am mainly wondering because one place that sells them has only the lined version...
