Shoe blues: Yuketen vs Quoddy

Yuketen dress shoes

Trust Yuketen to put an interesting twist to a reliable classic. I don't think I've seen deck shoes in this hue of blue, which looks like a vibrant cobalt with a tinge of cerulean. And there is also something almost imperceptibly unique about the shape itself of the pair. Can you tell?

Quoddy's suede moccasins are closer to cerulean. This Blucher model looks so soft, they remind you of the handsewn provenance of moccasins. Beautiful jagged detailing at the back.

And clay-colored, textured soles to match!
