In what marks the first time in a long time that the sight of the name UGG did not elicit an homonymous groan, Maine’s stalwart handcrafters of footwear, Quoddy, have lent some style and credibility to the Australian footwear giant mostly responsible for making brunch-going collegiates look sloppier than a messy sandwich. The nut of that long sentence: the Lewiston moccasin.
This shearling-lined boat shoe has the sole and hand stitching Quoddy have been killing with for a while fortified with a shearling insole. Wearing them sockless would be a huge temptation, though foot sweat and sheep fur might eventually make for a smelly collab. Look for them online come July 9.
