That is completely true. Kyle grew up with my business partner Mike in Maine, and he helped us put together a made-to-order shoe program for our store. The Rancourt family are third generation shoe makers and they do incredible stuff. For the price, it is easily the best handmade shoe on the market. Also, they offer a really wide selection of Horween leathers, which is a nice point of difference, especially when you are talking about boat shoes and moc-toe shoes.
I work pretty closely with Kyle and would be happy to answer any questions people might have about the brand.
Yuketen & Russell Moc make the finest handmade footwear, at least in my opinion. I am sure Rancourt makes a great product but can't touch the design, material, and overall quality of Yuketen. And Russell can make a kick ass moc out of just about anything that will last forever.
