Besides dress shoes I wear boots mostly during the fall and winter months. However during the summer months I mainly were various Rancourts, OSB, and Quoddys.

Thank you sir. Rancourts are my main choice given their Cordovan options, their variety, and the ability to customize. I tree all of my leather shoes., period.

How are their cordo boatshoes? Are they comfortable? Was going to get a pair, but was worried that they would be stiffer than your standard CXL.

Absolutely, they're my favorite summer shoe. Very comfortable and pliable when unlined, in fact more so than unlined CXL.

Barefoot.  Slippers.  Suede loafers and drivers.  And boots, including Trickers Stow, SC Berby Boots, and RM William Chelsea.

Love the color on those shoes RP. Looks like a nice eggplant shade.

Nice collection dddrees, I was thinking of getting a pair of boat shoes or ranger mocs in unlined cxl.

Honestly, usually I walk around my house barefoot so I find it a pain in the ass to put on socks and tie my shoes. That usually leads to either sneakers or boat shoes. If there was a good boot I could wear without socks and didn't have to lace up that would be ideal for winter.

Depends on your definition of dress shoes. I wear more casual oxfords (suede, contrast welt, saddle or spectators, for example), derbies, boots, or loafers. If by casual you mean with jeans and stuff. And by jeans I mean any color but denim. I never wear sneakers either, ever, unless it's for exercise.

I suppose I'm at the edge of the bell curve in this regard, but I've come to the conclusion that for a grown man, there is always something better to wear than denim and plastic shoes.

Thank you sir. If you do you really could go wrong with either Rancourt, Quoddy , or OSB.

please re-read my post. I see that. I detailed the errors. For example, top right says, "norwegian welted", but "norwegian/ norvegese" HAS NO WELT. No such thing.

Top right and bottom left are Bentivegna/ goyser... but there is some variation in the insole stitching. Cannot tell from the pic if one has a handcarved feather and the other is glued (like in goodyear) or what exactly the difference is.

Same with top left and bottom right. Both are similar and both resemble Norvegese/ norwegian stitch. They are differentiating between the 2, calling the bottom right "norvegese" and top left "norwegian". However, Santoni, Lattaniz and most other makers DO attach the norv stitch into the topsole (via feather) and call it "norvegese" (just like the top left mis-labeled figure.

I have no idea what holds the shoe together in bottom right, as the insole is not sewn to anything.
