Quick question: When is it not the perfect moment for a solid pair of suede shoes? Short answer: It’s never not. Quoddy’s Kennebec Chukka Boots are an exceptional example of the form, and will take you comfortably through spring, summer, and beyond, ideal counterpart to raw and broken-in denim, rolled khakis, shorts, and more that they are. I’d pair them with cuffed jeans, a pale blue oxford broadcloth short sleeve shirt, and denim snapback; or with a cotton suit as a rugged alternative to leather lace-ups. And because they’ve got that Quoddy guarantee, you can send them in for repairs, resoling, or general refurbishment anytime they’re looking less than perfect. Can’t argue with that.
