I would order these 3 (or a close variation) if Rancourt hadn't raised their prices so aggressively in the past 2 years.  I like a lot of their stuff, but find my self thinking "Meh, if they were $50 cheaper I would definitely get 'em."   Too bad they never really have sales (except that one time) or some sort of program that allows their earlier customers historic pricing.  But from their perspective, make hay while the sun is shining.  So I don't blame them as I...
Woah!  That is a bold statement!  You are WAY too kind! I'd be very challenged to come up with even the 3 best make-ups that I've seen.   It's weird though, lately I'm feeling this stock model.   I'm not sure I've seen anyone go with the banana-colored aspen sole, but that's something that I would definitely applaud.  (Perhaps with a blue or green CXL or Shell upper, hand-sewn of course.) Edit:  [[SPOILER]]
Here is one pair, however, that I would NOT part with.  (Camp-Moc Boat-Shoe Hybrid)   Can't wait for summer so that I can get these back in rotation!  
 Without knowing what the other options are, I would say brown.  Thats what the color of the sole/midsole is on both of my pairs pictured above in my previous post, as well as below in this post. They fit true-to-size, but some of their leathers will stretch more than others, so that is a factor.  Probably go with your sperry size. I think there are more sole options than they have listed in the customizer (haven't really fiddled with it in a while) and basically any of...
Thanks for the compliment! No one reason. Moving to a smaller space, changing taste, only wear them a dozen times a year, free up room on my shoe rack for other shoes that I have to keep in boxes.
Snapped some fresh shots of my Espresso Blake Boots for a listing, and figured I might as well post them up here as well so others can enjoy.  New  [[SPOILER]]  After some wear...   [[SPOILER]]

Maybe you'd be interested in a pair in Espresso Shell Cordovan, if you don't already have one? Edit: NVM, I see that you already do.
Throw that shoe fit guide out.  It causes more problems then it solves. It depends on how you plan to wear them.  Socks, sockless, etc. It depends on the material.  I like CXL to be a little snug out of the box because it stretches almost half a size, IME.' Looks like you do have a bit of room in the toe. Here is how mine fit, for reference. 
  Thanks, Gents.
