cannot wait to see those wingtips... mine are supposed to ship on the 24th

Heard from Rancourt this afternoon. Now due to ship midweek. So maybe next Monday for photos. They're experiencing high demand. ;-)

Very excited to see the myself.

As I put it, "Be not swayed from buying peanut suede." I'm probably more proud of that than I really should be. smile.gif
Steven Alan x Rancourt peanut suede chukkas. One of the heels came untied and I had to tie it back up, but otherwise they feel awesome. Tying it back up sucked, actually had to use a piece of thread to secure the ends, since there wasn't enough for me to actually tie a full knot.

Does anybody have any comment on how the Reltex Lactae Hevea soles hold up to wear?

I got those same boots when they were marked down so low and when I first got them, I wore them once or twice and basically forgot about them. I was rearranging stuff in my closet a couple of weeks ago and pulled them back out and have been wearing them quite a bit all of a sudden. It was a very comfortable makeup.

It's been holding up perfectly well for me. It is extraordinarily comfortable too. More comfortable than any sneaker sole I've ever worn.

Nice look. Those are a very solid pair of shoes, particularly at a good price.

Here's a shot of the Snuff Repello Blake Chukkas I just got (Black deerskin lining, natural midsole, minilug sole, antique brass):

 

I went TTS and my only complaint is that it is pretty tight with socks (perfect going barefoot) so I hope it stretches a little bit over time. Soles are very similar to Alden, but seem a bit stiffer out of the box.

Wow. Very nice. I think you will get some stretch from these. Suede Blakes I have are unlined. They did go from snug to comfortable very quickly.

Post some photos when you wear them too and enjoy!

Those are very badass indeed.  Good taste, sir.  The Snuff looks pretty dark.  Maybe just the lighting?  Tell me about the deerskin lining?  I have a pair of snuff rangers on the way with the black deerskin, so I would love to hear your impression.  My pair of Blake Boots are TTS and they are a good fit with regular thickness socks.  I think you will really enjoy those.

 

Also, can we get a shot of the bottom of the sole when you have a chance?  I'm curios if they are stitched or just glued, and if stitched, channel stitched?  I think I recall having a convo with someone in this thread about how Rancourt does not channel stitch (it was pertaining to the tempest), but I don't remember if that applied to all soles, or just the tempest

The navy colored "Clymer" suede ranger mocs that Rancourt posted up look pretty great. It's probably a good thing for my wallet that they don't have a coupon code going right now.

Here's a shot of the sole, they are stitched without a channel but it looks like they cut a bit into the rubber so it will last a little longer. (color is a bit better in this pic):

 

The deerskin lining is awesome, very soft compared to normal calfskin and feels great barefoot.

Just received my fist pair of Rancourts: beefroll camp mocs in #8 cxl and natural cxl

Well made and TTS

Thanks Rancourt, I will buy again.
