Hello friends, Kyle Rancourt here from Rancourt & Co. We know that some of you have had questions about our Blake and Blake Rapid construction and the innersoles we are using. We made a video to best explain why we use fiber innersoles instead of leather. enjoy.
Kyle, it's great to have you posting in and following this thread. I have a couple pairs of the CXL Blake boots that you made for the Eastland "Made in Maine" line and absolutely love them.
Now that you've introduced the Blake shortwing blucher, I was wondering if you have any plans to introduce longwing and plain toe bluchers as well. If not, would you consider making plans? ;-) The thought of one or both of those in navy and/or dark green shell is quite tantalizing to me . . .
Thanks again, and I wish you and the company continued success!
Followup: I had occasion to speak to Katie at length today. Among other things, she told me that LWBs and PTBs are in the works, but she couldn't say when they would hit the market - "2014 or 2015."
