I'm on year 3 of my canoe mocs from Arrow moccasins. They are rustic, but that's what I've liked. I imagine it wold take me a decade of casual war to wear out the bottoms. To date, the bottoms have darkened, suggesting some oil permeation, but have shown no wear. I have another pair, in reserve, and they have a "plume" effect much like shell cordovan - suggesting that they have lots of natural oils in reserve. These are not as refined as lined Townsviews, but the leather used is MUCH thicker - your call.

They do look nice but I've been a Russell fan for over fifteen years and I think it's time to order another pair. Y'see, my left leg is 8cm shorter due to a military injury and Russell will build up the left side without question. When I buy ready made shoes I have to get them adjusted.

as far as retrograde clothing websites go, I think Birdwell Britches has to be the champ.

There's no web site for Birdwell with this link. I surfed, snorkeled, and hung around the beach with two pairs of Birdwell Beach Britches for almost ten years. They held up against the salt water and abuse better than wetsuits I'd occasionally wear over them. If their current products are anything like what I owned I can recommend them without hesitation.

Does anyone here own shoes that are made by the Arrow Moccasin company?

Here is a very detailed thread from the other forum. And a detailed review with some good photos:
I am from Hudson originally and have had Arrow moccasins since I was 17, over 40 years ago. I want one last pair if I can get them. I have an email into them. Since he passed a couple of years ago they are not making any new ones. So get them while you can they are a great value for the money.
