Heritage Research meets Quoddy

Out of the two, you'd think that Heritage Research was the older brand, though in reality Quoddy have been around since 1909 making shoes for Arctic explorers, while Heritage Research are to launch their first ever collection this autumn.

Quoddy, which takes its name from the Native American tribe Passamaquoddy of East Maine, has carved itself a unique place in shoemaking history - originally known for their moccasins, birch bark canoes and woven baskets, these days the company works hard to keep up the tribe's good name, producing each pair of shoes by hand.

What better bedfellow then, than Heritage Research, who've injected Quoddy's traditional backcatalogue with a dose of contemporary British style. We love these boots, produced in leather with hand-stitched uppers on a hard-wearing Vibram sole. There's literally nothing that will keep your feet warmer this winter. Think we're jumping the gun? It's allegedly meant to snow this week - so hotfoot it down to East London's Number Six to grab a pair of your own...before it's too late.
