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.

 

Great kop.

Do you guys put shoe trees in your shoes?

Only the ones I care about . . . ;)

I definitely don't. I think it defeats the aesthetic/purpose of a boat shoe. I also think that most shoe trees really don't match the last of moc toed shoes, and will press up on the plug too much, changing the shape. But that's just me.

Also, a size 9.5 just popped up on BB for my cordovans, decided to order an extra pair just in case, for sizing. (So a 10 and a 9.5, since shell doesn't always stretch fully on the last, so it can have a lot of variability in sizing).

I don't tree my Rancourts, either.

Fabulous choice, Congrats. They very quickly became my favorite Summer shoe.

Thanks guys. Silly question but it looks like suede however on the Club Monaco site it says leather and to spot clean.

I was going to spray them with a suede protector, bad idea?

So I just picked up several pairs of Rancourts from the CM sale and have a small problem.

I purchased Blakes in both 10.5 and 11. The 10.5 seem to be the best fit, although they are quite snug.

I also purchased the venetian loafers in 11. I would have ordered 10.5, but they were sold out. The size 11 loafers do fit OK right now, although there is some extra room in the toe box. There doesn't seem to be any heal slippage right now, although I suspect that if they were any bigger that this would be a problem.

Do y'all think the loafers will stretch out and become too big to wear? Or do you think the fact that they are not snug from the start mean that I don't have to worry about stretching them out?

I really want to keep them because they are gorgeous shoes and cost just $90. Any advice is appreciated!

I noticed this wording on CM's website also. Here's how I interpreted it: suede is a type of leather, so claiming that the shoes are made of leather is technically accurate. Additionally, if I understand correctly, Rancourt uses "full grain suede", which is basically just inside-out full grain leather, i.e., the full-grain side is on the inside of the shoe. Maybe someone more knowledgable than me can improve or correct my explanation.

In short, spray them as you would any suede shoe. Incidentally, Rancourt claims that this suede is "waterproof".

not sure what your brannock size is but here's my take. My beefroll is TTS and I have it for over 2 years now, and I get heel slippage when going sockless, and that was not the issue when I first got the shoes.

My camp mocs will now be arriving Monday. I'm just going to pick them up at the same time. I'm itching for them to get here already!
