Quoddy shoes are always high quality, and these are no exception. Domestic domestic is also the best.
I bought these on sale and would be hesitant to purchase at full price.
On my pair, the leather is nice and soft but is lightly cracked throughout. It's probably normal and needs some conditioning, but it's very faint and only noticeable upon close inspection. There also seems to be a piece of debris caught between the leathers of the toe box resulting in a small bump that can be felt on the outside and inside. That, along with some broken stitching on the inside near the tongue, shouldn't be overlooked at such a high price. Overall, I am happy I have a pair of mocs that are Made in the USA. They are much more comfortable than my Sperry Gold Cups.
I originally bought true to my Brannock size, but found there was a lot of extra space between the toe and front of the shoe. I went a half size down, and it fits like a glove. Exchanges were easy and quick. I look forward to my next purchase through Domestic Domestic.

Over the years I have heard extremely favorable comments about this brand but this was the first time I have been lucky enough to find them available...and in my size. It was immediately evident why they are held in such regard. They are uniquely constructed to fit comfortably but also to hold up to frequent use. Many thanks for bringing this brand to Little Rock.
Shoes are great, and are very high quality, but the left shoe especially arrived with a lot of loose grain on the toe area. I decided to just live with it because I didn't want to deal with the hassle of an exchange, but it would've been nice to receive a pair with less flaws!
