Quoddy Maliseet Rowdy Calfskin

When it comes to handsewn moccasins our vote goes to Quoddy for best in class. Made in Lewiston, Maine Quoddy has a long tradition of fine casual shoe making.

The Maliseet is one of our favorite models because it is more of a shoe given the slightly higher profile and four eyelets for support.

Now available in brown Rowdy calfskin a leather that is rugged enough for the elements of autumn and comfortable to be worn right out of the box. Made on the Vibram tread sole these are perfect for wet days crossing streets or fields.

Wolverine Northman Boot

As the name implies the Wolverine Northman boots are for serious winter weather. The boots are made in Big Rapids, MI to military specifications. I lived in MI and trust me they know a thing or two about winter.

These rugged cowhide boots are made with Gore-Tax® breathable and waterproof membrane, which allows perspiration to escape but does not let water in. In addition a layer of Thinsulate® will keep your dogs warm well below freezing. Surprising light and comfortable, your feet will have no problem standing for extended periods even while ice fishing.

No you probably won’t wear these to the office but when push comes to shove and the winter settles in you’ll be dry & warm in a pair of Northman.
