RANCOURT & Co. Shoes - Made in Maine - Page 310

post #4636 of 5253

I ordered some beefrolls from BB and haven't even gotten anything from them. I assumed that BB would have the sizes at the warehouse that they show on the website. I already emailed them and they're looking into it. Maybe they're being made. It's been at least 3 weeks. #sadzface

Just got my ranger mocs in Parisian Blue and they are amazing. I can't recommend the color enough. It stands out just enough without being obnoxious.

 

Two questions:

 

- Do folks recommend using shoe trees with these?

- What products, if any, should I apply for protection?

-No, they are handsewns, let them take the shape of your foot.

 

-Nothing is required for protection.  CXL has plenty of natural wax and oils, such that nothing needs to be added.  After a few months, use Venetian Shoe Cream, Saphir Renovateur, or other to condition, and brush with a horsehair brush.

 

Edit: Pics please.

Yes. I'd love to see them.

First pics on the forum for me, so I hope these are okay. The dim lights in my hallway don't really do the color justice, as they are bluer than they appear here. And they're so comfortable, it feels like I'm walking on pillows. You can already see where they're molding to my feet after a day of pretty heavy use.

Beauties. That Aspen sole really is comfortable. Enjoy and post some more picks as they age.

My question is, and I am sure it's been asked before in this thread, but I went with a 10 1/2D as I wear a 10 1/2D in Alden Aberdeen last and a 10 D in Barrie last. Can I assume this to be a proper size for the Unlined Boat Shoe?

Thanks in advance for your time.

Been meaning to say congrats on joining team tan bulldog with red sole!

Bulldog does have some stretch but nothing like CXL.

I think you will like the leather. It ages nicely.

Seeing those ranger mocs, I am hoping to see my parisian blue boat shoes soon!

I've got to tell you Frank, your pics were what did it for me. They really do look great with the red sole. And your other shoe pics are great also. Thanks.

Personally I use shoe trees. They certainly can't hurt them. JAB has plenty of sales, so they can be purchased relatively inexpensively. I've been using VSC.

Beautiful.  Seeing those is really making me jones for my Parisian blue wingtips (supposed to ship next week, although given the delays others are reporting I'll have to wait and see about that).

For unlined CXL I don't use shoe trees as the shoe will take the shape of your foot and the tree will interrupt that. 

 

I've had great success with using Obenauf's Heavy Duty LP with CXL. The suspension time release conditioning is awesome. Also helps to prevent scuffing.

That's frustrating, but they will get them to you. I like to assume that they are doing their best.

I am pretty confident about Rancourt's attitude about delivering the shoes to their customer in the best way they can. I still recall that when I ordered my beefroll couple summers ago, I told them that I will be out of the country in about 4 weeks and would really love to bring the new shoes with me. They told me they will do their best and they did deliver my shoes just 2 days before I flew out. That was totally amazing!
