My Espresso Blakes are real head turners.  I kid you not.  It must be because they are so shiny.  Everyone looks at my feet when I walk by.  Not sure if they are admiring them or just wondering why they are so damn shiny.  Yesterday a pan handler said "nice shoes" as I walked past.

 

My only wish is that the toe box was higher, making them more boot like.  I get the feeling the last is really meant to be a shoe last.  The construction feels pretty unique too.  Not sure if it is that fiberboard insole or whatever they use.  Just feels unlike any other kind of footwear that I've ever worn.

Do you guys know if Rancourt uses any kind of shank in their shoes? I'm particularly interested in the models I have, the wiscassets (vibram wedge sole) and the Jefferson chukka (360 vibram).  Trying to see if my feet are more/less tired when I wear a shoe with a shank.

 

BTW, this reddit thread is a great resource for shoes that have shanks:

My Eastland MIM navy mocs came in today. These are my first cxl shoes. I'm really happy with them, especially for 50% discount I got on them.

Looks good, where did you get the discount?

Speaking of which, it's been a while since you posted pics!

Has anyone tried out the Maine Ring Boot? 

 

Seems like a great camping shoe.  I'm curious what others think.

Yes, Rancourt does use shanks.

I almost did a week or 2 ago, but then didn't because they were not discernible from the pics that I posted in the past.  Same shoes, same pants, same flooring.

It's been said before, and I'll say it again. Nothing but "Excellent Customer Service" at Rancourt.    As usual having second thoughts about my order, I emailed and Katie changed it on the fly. I feel bad for doing so, but I'm sure as hell glad they are so accommodating.

 

 

Thank You!!!

I'm glad to hear they're faring well. I might actually wear my crazy Blakes tomorrow.

Honestly, my only wish is that I could have foregone the pull loop.

Very cool. Thanks, MWS. My experiment shall begin.

Thanks, a small boutique was doing an inventory purge on ebay. Found out about it via /r/MFA. Apparently it's not uncommon to get them for this price though.

I ordered a pair of the cordovan venetian loafers from Brooks Brothers during the 30% off corporate card sale.

I intended to order the tan, but my salesperson ordered them in black. The black ones really look great, but I don't need a black loafer. I called BB customer service and now have a tan pair on the way. Now that I've seen the black ones in person, I'm even more excited about the tan ones.

If anyone is interested in the black cordovan venetian loafer in an 8.5D, I'd be happy to sell them for my cost including tax ($492.54) plus the cost to ship to you.

Wow, those look fantastic!

Those venetians are my size, but unfortunately I'll pass. I have a pair of Ranger Mocs shipping today, and in 3-4 months I'm getting my Alden Tankers.
