    For anyone that is still trying to find some Quoddy shoes, Albam clothing of the United Kingdom has a few styles up on their website, including white-soled boat shoes in both black AND burgundy (I ordered a pair of the burgundy myself). Overall, even with international shipping and all, they ended up only costing me $170 (new members to Albam get a 10% discount off their first purchase when they join up!) They got a good deal of sizes left, and while it is posted in UK sizes, they were very responsive about any sizing concerns that I might have had. Personally I was stoked to order them in Burgundy as I havn't seen anyone else with that style at the moment, and they would be a solid $30-$40 more if you had to get them from say, South Willard, for instance.

    Those boat boots looked amazing, I didn't want to mention them though since they are completely sold out. Oddly enough, if you check Quoddy's site, they don't offer boots like that that have either a boat sole or camp sole. I imagine you could call them and special order it, but who knows how long that would take. I was debating about ordering some shoes directly from Quoddy, but they are completely backed up on their orders. The folks at O'Connels told me they are nearly 2 months late on their orders alone.

    ^That stitching is pretty ugly, prefer the sw ones as no surprise.

    V if you like the indian moccasin stitch more power to you no place on a boat shoe really

    FWIW, I actually prefer the Albam stitching. I think regular deck shoes can be a little dull. These, at least, offer something a little a little different.

    My RG/Quoddy's from the Carrot's sale. Navy blue loafer with camp sole. Love the color, deep Navy with white stitching. FWIW: That's Nob Hill in the background from my office in Jackson Square. APC NS jeans and BR socks. [​IMG] By farfisa23, shot with Canon PowerShot G9 at 2009-02-27[/IMG]

    finally got my navy boat shoes from south willard. they are amazing quality and fit perfectly. thanks for the customer service over there ... responded quickly with all my fielded questions on sizing. shipping is not included in price so it is $204 total shipped.

    i wear vans slipons in 10, clarks dbs in 9, and have sperry chukka suede/pony hair boots in 10. these are navy boat shoes, with boat sole, and unlined, size 9.

    i know they said that the inner liner makes the inside more comfortable for wearing without socks but i have no complaints. so i dont know if its worth to pay more for the inner liner. plus unlined is more authentic ... haha. very comfy straight out of bag and cant wait for the weather to warm up.

    Be aware that if/when they get wet, the blue will fade onto the white sole. It actually looks better, in my opinion, but they certainly didn't look that "pristine" for more than a few days.

    thx chad

    do you have any pics of this actually happening? i just wanna see what it would look like when/if this happened.

    also is there a way to stop it from happening besides trying not to get them wet? would a waterproofing spray work?

    Interested in the navy color, but unsure about how it looks with denim (both dark and faded). While I've seen a pic or two in this thread, I'm undecided. Any thoughts or additional pictures? Even Sperry's would be considered.

    Which site ships Quoddy trail to Asia? Or do I have to rakuten it and pay a premium as always?[​IMG]
