Sizing 9,5 and 9. Indeed a very great benefit of MTO.
Interestingly the soles are same size, uppers differ in size. Visible for the keen eye as difference seems only in plug length, instep length seems equal.
Green shell camp mocs is another one that makes me question "why didn't I think of that?" Dark olive is a nice color too. Will you do the red bricks for that make up also? What sole for the Green shell camps? I always thought that banana color aspen would go well with green shell. So would that amazonian camp moc sole, or whatever that camp or boat sole is that is kind of a pale yellow. (chime in if you know what i'm talking about).
The natural would look good too.
FYI, the aspen on my rangers causes me to trip on the carpet sometimes, which causes the sole to separate from the midsole. I have been gluing it back on with Dap contact cement. Its been happening less now that I am getting used to it. Makes a strong case for that leather toe that Alden uses on their crepe.
I was surprised how 'bouncy' the natural latex was when I first wore them. Exceeded my expectations in that sense. In some ways it feels kind of weird though. There feels to be a hard lump in the back of the heel on one shoe, and the squishyness is a trade-off for support. Someone who requires a lot of arch support might find them problematic. All-in-all, I would not advise against them.
Black Shell Cordovan Ranger Mocs with RLH soles.....natural mid sole, chestnut laces, unlined, bright brass eyes. VERY light in weight! awesomely comfortable.....
A noob to Rancourt here and I was wondering if anybody can share their experience about the Rancourt wingtip sizing compared AE's 5 last? I wear an 8.5D on the AE 5 last.
With the unavailability at AE of light colored shells, Im now thinking of going for a Rancourt blake wingtip where colors such as caramel, green, and navy are available. But Im unsure of sizing as Ive never worn or tried on a pair of Rancourt.
How does the sizing compare to AE's 511 last? Did you have to adjust your size? I wear an 8.5D on AE 5 last and was wondering how the fit and size compares to Rancourt's sizing as Im now seriously considering my first venture into Rancourt's MTo program.
Thanks for the information, especially for the added info about heel cup fit. Yes, I live in the tropics so I usually wear my shoes with dress socks, or sometimes when Im adventurous with no-show socks. So I'd really like to get the size spot on.
Ive dropped an email to Rancour, lets see what the advise will be.
