Monk FactsThis canoe shoe is an even more relaxed alternative to the classic boat shoe. With its soft leather sole it is designed for canoeing and kayaking, but can easily be used on a yacht or even going around the corner for a spot of brunch. While many classic American boat shoe brands have slowly shifted production offshore, Quoddy have remained true to what made the boat shoe iconic: hand stitching and top-quality materials. The cushioned insole makes moccasins unbelievably comfortable; you won’t want to take them off. It isn’t often that we can say that a maker is indisputably ‘the best’ at doing what they do, but when it comes to making boat shoes, nobody does it better than Quoddy. Taking their name from the Native American ‘Passamaquoddy’ tribe, who originally inhabited the area around Maine, Quoddy make every single pair of their shoes in a single workshop. Almost every step in the shoemaking process is entirely hand-done, with every pair designed to be continually repairable over the course of a lifetime. Using only the finest Horween leathers, every pair of Quoddy shoes is a marvel of traditional American craftsmanship.
