I also ordered chukka in my regular size. Sizing was perfect but hated look of it. Already returned my pair. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

$400 natural shell loafers is awesome! But, it's worth pointing out that because they are Ralph Lauren labeled, they are *not* eligible to be resoled or recrafted by Rancourt. With their leather sole's mediocre durability, I'd recommend getting them direct from Rancourt and knowing that they are backed by their service and resole/recraft options.

mediocre is a bit kind. I am very un-impressed with the durability of their leather soles.

After wearing through the only leather sole I've had from Rancourt in steady but not hard seasonal wear in about two years or so, I'd agree. They are also somehow the least comfortable leather soles I've ever worn. Not sure why. Swapping them out for Aspen RLH has made the shoes completely different.

Yeah, in retrospect, I wish I'd gone with my initial desire to have the Tempest sole on these. Ah well. I'll wait until these are worn through and then replace them. I actually find the sole really quite comfortable, and I don't think they're wearing through any faster than any other leather soles I've worn. My real only issue is that they use two rows of stitching through the upper, so that's double the holes. When I get them resoled, I'm going to stick to soles that only do one set of stitching. Either the tempest or possibly Vibram Christie. FWIW, I found the Tempest to be much easier to break in than otherwise reported. Oh, and when I resole my #8 rangers, they are going onto the montello mini-lug I think.

I've joined the Rancourt family with the 3 eyed chukka from Club Monaco.

I got my normal size and at first it was tight but it's breaking in now. However my ankles are getting destroyed, but I guess it's still breaking in.

I'm not a fan of the laces that came with it. Maybe it will grow on me?

There's a lot of chaffing on your ankles? Hope that works itself out as the break in. Nice chukkas.

It's uncomfortable when I walk yes. However I THINK they should be fine as I keep wearing them, but as of right now it's just irritating the crap out of my ankle and the back of my heel.

It's a nice shoe though

I hear you on the laces. Have a pair of Rancourt ranger mocs and love them, but the leather laces were stiff and awkward at first. But they start to soften up nicely, and I'm sure that rigidness just means they'll last longer!

Rancourt always provides significant extra length on their laces, so you have options and enough length. You're not supposed to leave them super long like that, you tie them how you want, and then cut them to size. Also, you tied a granny knot, and not a proper box knot.

Yeah, I already cut them to my liking.

Thanks

I'm joining in on the #8 shell boat shoe club. Just bought the last pair at BB, which happened to be in my size, in today's 15% off (on top of the 30% discount they already had) so $380 shipped. more or less after taxes. Perfect for going to the beach or on the boat around here. My tempests are great, but they're just not quite casual enough for times I want to be super casual. Plus, these will be boat shoes that survive a decade easily.
