I'm into the high-top moc these days. On the right, the black one is from Quoddy, an incredible handmade moccasin outfit out of Maine. While not exactly custom—that is, they make them in standard sizes—each pair is made upon order. I chose the black Ring Boot with a crepe sole for urban adventuring and mine took about 6 weeks to reach my PO Box. You can check out a factory tour of their premises over at All Plaidout. To the left, the tan one is from the Rose Bowl. It has a single bottom construction, but it's made of stiff, hardy leather, made to last. I really love the tooling detail along the edges. I imagine choosing this pair for casual rural shuffling.
