I became fan of Quoddy last year when I copped a pair of deck boots (Pic: Left) by them from Albam last year and I have not looked back since then. The good folks about Quoddy definitely do know a few things about making deck boots and it certainly reflects in their works especially in their collaborations with different stores like Albam and 3Sixteen. Although quite pricey, they more than make up in qulity as it is hand sewn – in Maine – to perfection and wears beautifully. To own a pair of Quoddys, be prepared to wait a bit as they get sold out quickly. I had to wait 3 weeks for my size stock. I am pretty sure the folks at Albam got sick and tired of me dropping in every other day asking if they were ready. I prefer Albam Quoddy deck boots to my Timbaland ones. More stylish and comfortable.
Below is the new collaboration between Quoddy and 3Sixteen.
We collaborated with Quoddy Trail to develop this custom silhouette exclusively for 3sixteen. Quoddy Trail employs expert sewers who craft each shoe by hand from start to finish. The shoes are made of Peanut Grizzly leather flipped inside out for a suede finish, and are fully leather-lined for comfort. They also feature a full leather vamp, antique brass eyelets, and a handsewn lock-stitched tip and kicker. Handmade in Maine.
As usual. Just beautiful. Shall be copping this definitely.
Get them here – 3Sixteen
If you are not a fan of the Suede look then you can opt for the Albam/Quoddy deck boots. Equally striking, same quality workmanship. The color on this pair is perfect for any type of blue shade jean you might have so makes for a perfect base boot.
The Deck Chukka Boot. Our latest shoe in conjunction with Quoddy. This mid cut boot features all the finery of Quoddy’s expertise, water resistant Horween leathers, white decksole for traction and the signature cross stitch. As always these are in limited numbers so if you see them, then snap them up! Made in USA.
