It is interesting to see how New England apparel that may be a staple in their natural territory can be subject to phases of recognition by the rest of the world. Quoddy seems to be one of those. These amazingly crafted shoes can now be spotted in Urban Outfitters, the J. Crew catalog and on Gisele’s feet in Vogue. At first it irked me to think that the moccasins I stomped around Maine in as a child were now becoming a trend. But I’ve come to realize that the more credit that can be given to this genuine product of Maine, the better. Check out their website to learn more about how these hand sewn moccasins and boots aren’t just a brand, they are a reflection of the spirit and culture of Down East Maine.
