Available in both blue and yellow colorways, limited to 1333 of each.

From the Quoddy Trail website, “The Shorey family has been making moccasins for generations, beginning with Harry Smith Shorey, a handsewer for L.L. Bean in the early 1900s, who also had his own shop in Burlington-Lowell. Today, we continue his fine tradition on the Quoddy Trail. In Downeast Maine, near the shores of the Passamaquoddy Bay, we make our traditional moccasin styles using the same time-honored techniques and quality materials. 

            Each process is done by hand — cutting, skiving, stitching, and handsewing.”

“With Quoddy, you receive a genuine handmade moccasin. While leather properties vary slightly with every hide, each pair demonstrates our philosophy: Attention to detail and no shortcuts.”

That pretty much nails it. Hand-made moccasins with the freshest materials and quality family ingenuity. Made in Maine. Come in many styles including, a boat shoe, ring boots and everything in between. 

 

Adding these to the buy list as well. Check out more information on styles and how to purchase your Downeast Maine moccasins HERE
