Quoddy Shoes - Hand Sewn in Maine

Bluchers - An Autumn Essential
At a time when many other providers of these shoes are well along their "race to the bottom" strategy, Quoddy continues to set the bar for quality.

Quoddy's specialty is made-to-order, and their website makes it easy for people to design their own shoes and boots,  One can choose the color of each of the individual parts - upper leather; upper shaft panel; midsole, thread, hardware, laces and lining.

People accustomed to lesser quality items may be surprised at how long Quoddy shoes last.  Many talk in terms not of a season or two but a decade or two.  And Quoddy offers a very easy-to-use, reasonably priced resoling service for even longer life.

Men's Classic Boat Shoe, Brown

These quintessential boat shoes are very comfortable and long lasting.


This Blucher is, for many, their first pair of Quoddys.  The design is as versatile and classic as a pair of khakis or an oxford shirt.

The shoes are individually made by hand, so you can design your own, and select from eighteen options of Horween leather or suede.

For people who live in boat shoes during the summer, bluchers are the natural transition to the rest of the year.   Shown here:
