The weather experienced during fall months in southern Louisiana can be as diverse as our culture, and so unpredictable, that a versatile shoe is a must-have. From drudging through a torrential downpour to surviving rising temperatures, a shoe has to be durable, if anything else. This hand-made chukka (sans staples, glue, plastic molding, etc.) by Maine shoemakers, Quoddy fits the bill. With a leather upper, nickel eyelets, and a hand-sewn rubber camp sole, this shoe is versatile enough to wear with shorts, and durable enough to master the elements. Whether your fighting Mother Nature, Jack Frost, or Mr. Golden Sun, this shoe can stand up to the challenge.
