Those are great! Enjoy! I believe they are the CXL green. That is the color I ordered for my Ranger Mocs

I am done with the back and forth. I just want to take a small loss and be done with it.
These ranger mocs were going to be my SoCal winter shoes.

Those should indeed be perfect summer shoes. Enjoy.

CXL they are.

 

I have worn them three times (about 30 hours) and they have receievd their first coat of Neatsfoot oil, won't oil them for another couple of months.

The stitching color is definitely off.  I think the shoe color is close enough, and a little brown polish could make the lighter one a little darker.  but the stitching color...that's tricky.  Maybe some polish on the lighter stitching will match the darker stitching.

from Rancourt facebook page - this could help some of us with the sizing issues.  I assume they will mail these to people like what warby parker does with eye wear.

I don't think you can match the color with polish.  Polish would darken it, but not likely to the same shade as the other shoe, just darker than it was originally.  Possibly too dark (darker than the dark shoe).  Also, not sure if you are supposed to polish natural CXL.

Well, these are supposed to be zero drop - I can't quite tell. It appears that the heel and forefoot are in line, with arch support. Emailed em to check but I'm sure I'll just be keeping em..

I like the two tones of textured leather on these. Very nice. How come these took two months to get to you? Enjoy.

Hard to tell if its zero drop from the photo, but that's a nice chukka one way or another. Enjoy.

Those two tones and those boots are awesome!

Rancourt uses Rochester shoe trees (which I have a bunch of). For my size 8.5 and 9s (in other brands) I have always bought a medium shoe tree.

 

Rancourt shoe trees are listed as:

6.5E > 8.5D - small

8EE > 10D - medium

 

My Rancourt size is 8E...I can't figure out the sizing - anyone have an idea?

 

Maybe I'll just go directly through Rochester - sizing is easier to figure out...
