They are breaking in good now. Next time I'll size up though

I'm not size 32 but I figured I"m wearing it casually so I won't be tucking in m y shirt

I thought id share my experience sending a pair of leffot ivy unlined shell loafers back for a resole. I sent them in about 4 weeks ago after purchasing the $125 premium refinishing package with the instructions to replace the soles with honey hevea lactae. I hadn't received any word so called them last wed or so. I was told my shoes were due to be mailed back to me on fri. I was starting to look for them in the mail, but I received a phone call today from rancourt. The friendly female voice told me that they had accidentally cut into the leather footbed on my loafers and they would need to remake the whole shoe. These unlined shell venetians surround your foot in shell, so they are very labor intensive to create. I'm not upset that they damaged my shoes, I'm glad that they admit the mistake and remake them from scratch rather than do a shoddy repair. She told me they will probably take 2 wks to make. In a couple weeks I'll anxiously await my brand new navy shell ivys with honey hevea lactae soles!

Sorry to hear about the issue, however it sounds as they are doing the right thing.

Actually, this is doubly impressive because officially they do not do their resoling package on shoes that don't say Rancourt anywhere on them. I believe last time I checked out the Leffot Ivy loafers, they are only branded Leffot. They're obviously Rancourts, of course, and it makes sense for them to do it for premium shell shoes since otherwise they'll have really pissed off customers on their hands. But still, it's a nice gesture on their part.

As for the replacing the shoe on an error, that's classic Rancourt. I've unfortunately had them do some shoddy work, and on shell cordovan no less, but each time they immediately offered that while they thought they were up to par, they would be more than happy to remake the shoes for me.

Yes, I'm somewhat worried that my newly made pair will have some unsightly flaw, but hopefully not. I'll probably post a pic here bc I haven't seen a pair of ivys or similar with the hevea lactae sole. I'm expecting them to be the most comfortable shoes on planet Earth.

I'd like to see those venetians. Agree: ought to be very comfortable. You went with the heeled RLH I take it (as opposed to the Aspen)? Seems like a heel is the classic choice here.

Picked up my new Camp mocs the other day! Along with my beefrolls! Accidentally posted these in the wrong thread yesterday. They are gorgeous. Not sure how much I like the contrast of the navy laces. I think id prefer something like chesnut. It's growing on me though.

I was really iffy about the tan stitching at first but I really love it now. I wonder what the difference in colour is between the navy laces and black ones.

 

My poor bloodied feet. I was really shocked by the amount of dye that came off. It was bad enough that it stained my socks the next day even after showering.

 

Beefrolls on my feet. Right one is definitely a pain to get into but it still fits comfortable. Im a 9.5B in my left and C in my right. I ordered these tts so i can wear them with no show socks or normal socks

 

 

Odd stitch on the beefroll

 

Loose grain on my coaster, should I exchange?

 

 

I love all the little defects that are in the coasters, it makes them so interesting.

 

 

My complete Rancourt collection along with the coasters that came with them.

Left to right: Golf Green custom Boat Shoes, #8 Beefrolls, Lolipop Red Camp Mocs, Navy Beefrolls.

 

My cat decided to model for me while I was taking pictures.

Great looking shoes and great looking collection. I recall when I got my navy shell beefrolls a few years back I had the terrible bleeding from them too and the bottoms of a pair of my chinos also had quite a bit of the color bleed on to them as well.

The price we pay for fashion...

good to know before I begin the break in on my navy beefrolls...

Hi guys,

Looking to buy my first pair of more casual shoes.

Looking at the ranger moc in Nat cxl and clyder 2.0 in brown/olive. Which of the 3 colours would be best for a 1st pair? Leaning towards the clyder.

Also, I'm a 9.5 in redwing 1907 but they're slightly tight. How should I size for the rancourts?

Lastly, anywhere I can get the rancourts for cheaper? The official site is $40 for shipping to Asia..

Any of those colors would work pretty well for a first pair of quality casual shoes. Their olive color is nice and subdued and works surprisingly well with a lot of different looks. I have a chukka in the olive and a ranger moc in the natural CXL and both get worn a lot, but for a first pair, as much as I like the olive, I might lean towards the natural CXL ranger moc. It's a very versatile shoe. Mine get worn all year long with everything from chinos and jeans to more tailored wool, moleskin, and corduroy trousers as well.

Occasionally, you can find "deals" on Rancourt through 3rd party retailers like Club Monaco and Steven Alan but the selection will be very limited and I have no idea if they will ship to Asia. If your looking for something very specific, your best bet is probably going to be to pay the extra for the international shipping and get them directly through Rancourt.

Katie tells me that they can put a third eyelet on a custom Blake chukka.  What do people think?  Would it look better with three?
