I was hoping to avoid that, since I'm pretty happy with the ready made ranger mocs. The $50 credit they give you can only be used on MTO shoes. They do offer free exchanges (shipping included!) so if the 10.5 doesn't fit then I can just do an exchange. I'll keep in mind that a little snugness is not an issue. I'll have a little chat with someone over at rancourt before I order too. Thanks for the tips everyone, I'll be sure to post some pics!

However, I've been of the school that if something doesn't "feel right" off the bat, don't get it. So, I've gone with the more comfortable fit.

A lot of guys on here will say, well they hurt for 2 or 3 weeks...but now they are like gloves. I just don't like pain or bandaids, shoe stretchers etc. HTH.

Heh, well except that I'm saying that they still stretched out so far that they are too big to wear without socks now. The sores were normal blisters on the heel (normal for breaking in a new no-sock shoe) and where the stitching of the eyestays rubbed against my toe-knuckles. I just bought a pair of Highland-made loafers that are nice and snug, and a hair long in a size 10D (vs my Rancourt loafers 9.5EE, or Rangers 9.5D/9EE). So we'll see how these do with time, and never wearing socks.

Anyone who's worried about pain from unlined CXL handsewns should not even consider breaking in a pair of Red Wings.

That shit's pain.

Dress shoes come in hundreds of brands and lasts, so one could be talking about dress shoes on an Allen Edmonds #5 last (park ave, strand, etc...which I wear in a 9) or dress shoes on an Alden Barrie last (which I wear in an 8.5).  That's why the brannock is the important measurement.

Thanks for the clarification. So for your example, which dress shoe size would you be sizing down from?

My pleasure.  I'm a 9 on the brannock device, and wear a 9 in Allen Edmonds #5 last (generally considered pretty true to size), so I'm an 8.5 in Rancourt Beefrolls, an 8.5 in Rancourt ranger mocs, an 8.5 in OSB trail oxfords (ranger moc by a different name) and an 8 in OSB Beefrolls.

 

Hope that helps!

When I did a Made-to-Fit, the credit was available for regular shoes as well.  Did the policy change?  I sounds weird that they will restrict the credit to MTO only.

Hi Thomas,

That is only available through the custom design tool. They would not be able to be returned or exchanged for any reason.

Best,
Katie

Comment: I am wondering if it is possible to order different sizes for L and R shoes on your "ready made" shoes, or if this is only available for custom made shoes. Thank you.

Isn't this just saying that you can't order a pair of shoes that have 2 different sizes from their readymade line?  As I see it, this isn't talking about whether or not once can use a $50 giftcard on the readymades.

I don't think that means the Made To Fit credit only applies to MTO. 

 

It only means you can't order a mismatched pair except through MTO

True enough...I was just confused by the email that you posted.

Ready Made shoes only account for a few of their standard makeups anyway. They have a bunch of standard makeups that are not kept in stock, and are considered MTO

You can also order any of their ready-made shoes through the MTO portion of the website at the same price, with the only difference being that you have a 2-3 week wait. So you can still get your discount on exactly the same shoe, though it's too bad you can't get the different size for left and right on the made to order. But CXL stretches a lot, so you can probably get the same size to fit both feet.

The ready made shoes have their own return for a different size policy than the made to order, and they only have a limited selection of the "get your correct size" try on shoes. At least that's the best I can figure it.

So, I officially sent my #8 shell ranger mocs back for repair (potentially replacement). The cracking of the shell has gotten out of hand. Not Rancourt's fault, exactly, but the piece of shell they used was clearly very odd. Even with lexol conditioning, it's stayed brittle and dry, and the rear side of it feels like suede, not like shell cordovan. Very strange. So we'll see what they think. As usual, their willingness to help make me happy has been great, but it did take a bit of patience to communicate, as they travel a lot, and are always very busy. But it's still impressive that they can run a full factory and still offer MTO shoes and direct sales to customers like they do.
