I think it would likely be un-noticed by about 99.9999% of people who see you. However, the 2-eyelet style is sort of a classic though so I don't know if I would want to mess with it, unless I was concerned about the boot being too loose around the top, which can be a legit concern for some with their chukkas. I don't think it would look any better... just a bit different.

I can only recall a coupon code once in the past few years and that was when they launched their design-your-own app. The code was just enough to basically waive the mark-up for their custom designed service.

They did another coupon code a little bit later, during Black Friday/Cyber Monday last year. I think it was 10% off anything. But yeah, those are the only two times there have been discounts. I wouldn't count on that coming around again.

PSA . . . for anyone contemplating placing a custom order, the current turnaround times I've just been quoted are four weeks for CXL (and presumably other casual leathers) and seven weeks for shell (due to the fact that they'll be waiting another month or so for a re-up from Horween).

Not sure if this is on the USA side

websites says it include shoes, when you add it to cart and checkout, the code doesn't work on rancourts. wondering if its only CM products only and not third party products

Worked for me

Another update on my saga: got an email from rancourt yesterday with tracking info, which surprised me bc Katie told me my shell venetians would take a couple weeks to remake. I called today and talked to her again, and after checking, she confirmed that my brand new shells are already on their way to me! They made them in only a day or two apparently. She couldn't believe it but she said they pulled off a miracle. I'll be very anxiously waiting until Saturday to open this package!

What would be the best sole for dealing with winter weather? The Vibram mini lug? Thinking about ordering a custom Clymer boot for fall/winter.

The Club Monaco website is broken, but if you call they will honor the code and waive shipping.

 

I bought 2 pairs with the sale...the burgundy beefroll loafer and the black 5 eyelet boot - $120 each.

 

Club Monaco introduced me to Rancourt when I purchased the "brown" ranger mocs earlier this year. Their brown is actually Rancourt's Color 8 Chromexcel.  Great shoe, and turns out I really like the company after researching them a bit more.

 

One thing to note on Club Monaco's ranger moc...I absolutely hate the soles.  I feel every pebble underneath them. They don't work well for Boston's streets.

Thanks for the tip. I ordered the 5-eyelet boots because I needed them like I need a punch in the face.

It took me a few tries to get it to work as well, but eventually, after deleting everything from my cart and starting over from scratch, I got the site to accept payment and complete the transaction.

I have the Vibram mini-lug on a pair of Ranger Mocs and they served me very well in the snowiest and iciest winter Detroit has seen in more than 100 years. It's a pretty stiff sole compared to the lugged soles I am used to from Alden, but I had no complaints.

Gents, 

 

I have a pair of camp mocs with a sole similar to what's in the picture.

 

 

Is it nuts to want to apply a topy or vibram sheet on such a sole. To elaborate, i believe that moccasin soles are blake stitched although I might be wrong and a cobble would charge 80 at least to resole them but not with a similar sole. A topy costs anywhere between 15-35. To resend the mocs back to the States would cost at least 50 for shipping and the standard quoted refinishing rate of USD75. 

 

Is rubber on rubber a plausible compromise? Does it work as well as topy on leather soles?

I'm no cobbler, but I think a topy or something similar on that type of sole might have a hard time staying attached because of the all the small grooves/indentations in the sole. It doesn't seem like it would be too secure unless you use gobs and gobs of adhesive. The little grooves would likely allow moisture to penetrate more easily which would degrade any adhesive you do apply.

FWIW, I have found all of my non-leather soles from Rancourt to be quite durable and they are holding up very well. I don't know if I would bother with a topy on the rubber soles.

That sounds perfect then as I live in Windsor haha.
