One to watch: Quoddy footwear for men and women

Buy into a family tradition of quality footwear with Quoddy this Autumn

It’s rare to find a global fashion brand with a true family-run feel, but Quoddy footwear is one. The Maine-based Shorey family has been handsewing shoes, boots and moccasins for men and women since 1909, heavily influenced by the superb craftsmanship of the neighboring Passamaquoddy tribe. Times have obviously changed dramatically since the early 20th century but Quoddy continues to make functional, high quality shoes that last. For gentelemen, there are sturdy leather docksiders and boots (below); for ladies, snug suede and sheepskin ankle boots (above) that could well overtake UGG in the style – and comfort – stakes this autumn.

Available at Dover Street Market, 17-18 Dover Street, W1S 4LT (020 7518 0680), mrporter.com and net-a-porter.com; for info, see quoddy.com.
