At Oliver Spencer we love handcrafted and well thought out products, and that is the simple reason why we love Quoddy shoes.
Quoddy footwear is made by hand in Maine. The art of handsewing shoes goes back hundreds of years in Maine, and generations for many craftspeople at Quoddy. Moccasins represent a specific approach to shoemaking; a footwear philosophy and a construction technique. Quite simply, Quoddy’s method of moccasin construction creates a shoe that functions as a glove for your foot. It surrounds your foot in supple leather, and allows your foot muscles, bones, and tendons to support you naturally as they were intended to do, while offering protection, cushioning, and style.
A Quoddy shoe adapts to you and your foot rather than forcing you to accommodate it. It has a natural feel; you are connected to your walking surface, connected to the earth. Even the soles are designed to promote this; they are stitched to the shoe bottom rather than glued so that they maintain flexibility and can be infinitely replaced.
We stock a variety of styles of Quoddy in both suedes and leathers, these styles each season so it is worth regularly visiting to see which exciting new pair of Quoddys we have in. Our most loyal customers are those who wear Quoddys, once you own a pair you won’t be able to take them off.
