Those are original wood floors from a really old building, and not a new floor made of reclaimed wood, right?

 

Edit: Also, nice shoes.  I always appreciate it when people post pics.  Next time, how about a different angle.  I noticed you favor the top-down perspective in a lot of your photography.

 

Nice jeans too!

Got my #8 Rangers. Size is nice and snug, perfect for what I was going for with these. Going to be a great shoe. The #8 shell they used is perfect, it's the super light, reddish hue. I'll get some pictures up when I can at home.

Two things to note: They made only one row of stitches on the tempest sole, so that the midsole isn't sewn in separately. Perfect, since these will inevitably be resoled.

Other thing: they shaved the leather slightly, so that it's pale pink on the inside and there's no horween stamp. That's probably both good and bad. The shell is much more breathable this way, so I'm sure that's why they did it. Much more comfortable to wear without socks. That said, no horween stamp.

Also, my laces are wayyyy too short. I'll have to cut my own, I guess.

Congrats! Look forward to seeing some pics

I went with flat waxed laces from Hanger Project. I think they work really well

After wearing them for a bit, these are really great. smile.gif The tempest soles feel awesome, and will actually break in fairly easy. At least as easy as JR soles, definitely a nice amount of flex to them right away. The color is already starting to change with a few creases. These would be a nightmare for anyone who wants a perfect looking shoe, but for me, these are going to just look amazing in a year. I can't wait to see what these look like after I get through with them. You can figure they're going to go through the ringer. I feel bad that it means my CXL rangers are going to be quasi-retired, but they had a nice life.

So glad I got the shiny brass, I think they just look so much better with the #8 shell than the antique brass. Also, you can see how they shaved the shell. It feels like a short nap suede now, and is super comfortable to wear. Has less of that clammy feeling that wearing a lined shoe without socks can give you.

Also, noticed they didn't give me the double whip stitch. Ah well. Anyway, these are an amazing buy, can't wait to see everyone elses.

Pics: The color is most accurate in the last one, the palest red. Also, they got a bit chalky because I'm doing house work, and there is drywall powder everywhere.

Also looking forward to what will hopefully be a lot of high quality pics. How long are the laces that they sent?

Edit: nvm. Nice pics!

Those look great. I love the color of Rancourt #8. These shoes are meant to have some wear on them. You are right about that. Great photos.

Out of curiosity, is the shaving of the shell cordovan normal for Rancourt with their Rangers? Anyone else have experience with whether they've been doing that normally for them? I doubt it affects durability, but it occurs to me that I don't really know one way or another. I don't mind it, and it's actually incredibly comfortable, but curious others' experiences.

What would one look for to know it was shaved?

As previously requested, bitter chocolate repello rangers, antique brass eyelets, brown midsole, black christy soles (plus stray minion looking for a good home):

Is it a little bit nappy? Like how CXL feels on the inside (or suede feels?) Or is it a smooth surface that almost feels like the grain of a piece of leather.

And those bitter suedes are gorgeous.

Does anyone have any experience with the Buckaroo or "Latigo Glace" offered on the custom shoes?

I didn't see any shaving for my rangers.

I could clearly see the horween mark inside the shoes

I have a pair in the Latigo Glace that are (finally) on their way to me. I'll post some photos and my thoughts when the arrive in the next few days.
