Quoddy are an American brand with ancient traditions at their heart. Working from wooden benches with basic tools, each pair of Quoddy shoes is coaxed into life - each has a unique character, a unique hand to it - and this kind of expertise and attention means they're supremely well-made, with the human foot held in mind, to achieve a stylish, authentic, durable and wonderfully comfortable shoe. These are worth investing in.
The Camp Driver is a lovely, moccasin-style shoe covered in a soft, dashing grey suede that will sit nicely under jeans, chinos or smarter trousers alike. There's a sense of the urbane to these shoes, with a softness and positivity to them that bely their sturdiness and grit. The soles are black Vibram air-injected, which means they offer more support and comfort than the traditional pair of flatter shoes like these - so often you have to trade style for comfort when it comes to this style, but not with Quoddy - they've thought of everything.
Robust, comfortable, with smart brown laces and details arcing around the edges, these are a smart, unique and timeless pair of shoes for romping through the streets or kicking back in.
