While being sick as a dog (some sort of allergies/bad cold mix which is my excuse for not posting in a week), my Minnetonka driving mocs came in the mail from Minnetonka. So far, they're comfortable, although the tread is very squeaky in my dorm's halls. I got them a half size small so they fit tight, which was a good call as they don't slide off my heel. I'll have to wear them a few more days before I can recommend them.
Edit: Also, I believe these are the shoes that Jake Davis recently endorsed on his blog. The man knows what's up. Quoddys are beautiful and all (I'm sure they last considerably longer than Minnetonkas), but with my habit of misplacing things, I wouldn't feel comfortable wearing a casual shoe that expensive.
Parting thoughts: I found a LL Bean corduroy shirt in a box of my clothes of winter wear which I didn't know I had. Isn't it great when things like that happen?
