RANCOURT & Co. Shoes - Made in Maine - Page 344

Thanks. I know it gets said a lot, but these are amazingly comfortable. Unlined suede and crepe sole you hardly even know they are on your feet. I think the last is different from their typical handsewns too (recall hearing this from Rancourt directly). Toe box seems a little more pointed. I like it.

They've always been responsive to my emails too. Dustin I'm already dreaming up my next order! One other thing: lead time was 40 days from placing the order to delivery.

glad to be of help. you've also dreamed up one of my future purchases with those shearlings. I almost regret not doing it on my own boots!

I really like this style of chukka.

I got my 5-eyelet brown CXL boots from Club Monaco last week and have to say thanks to whoever it was that first posted about the 40% off coupon code on the Rancourts over there.

$120 for these? Hard to pass up! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

They have a camp-moc rubber sole, right? I really like that look on the handsewn boots. Great pickup.

They do. The first Rancourts I got were the hand-sewn camp-mocs with the rubber sole in brown cxl so now I have them in the boot version. These are just as comfortable.

What's the fit like on those shearlings?  What size is the shearling vs the ranger moc or loafer?

 

I finally destroyed my ugg tasmans after 4 years of wear...they were always ugly but insanely comfortable.  Would love to step up to something that actually looks good.

 

Would also love to know if the sock lining (I think that's what they call the bottom of the foot lining) is replaceable?  That was the first thing to go on my uggs.

just curious, would you wear these in the winter time? how do you think a camp-sole would fair with snow?

The camp sole is not ideal in the ice and snow but I've worn worse. I honestly don't think it's any worse than Rancourt's Tempest sole (or the Dainite sole) which I've always found to be much less grippy than other people report and have never understood the love of. If I lived somewhere like Chicago or NYC where I was liable to be out walking much more than we do in Detroit I would be less likely to wear these in the winter. Around here though, they will probably still get a fair amount of use unless it is absolutely freezing or if there are 6" or more of snow, and even then the lack of a lining is what will keep me from wearing them, not the sole.

In the only pair of shearling-lined shoes I've tried on from Rancourt (at the factory), they were only partially lined, and had no shearling in the forefoot/toes (where I'd really want it).  I'm sure there shearling lining would get squished down in that area and would likely make sizing a lot more difficult, but as potential slippers I was disappointed by this.  Does anyone know if it's possible to get them fully shearling lined?

Those look great! Olive CXL is definitely in my next rancourt custom shoes.

Mine is fully shearling lined to the toes. Katie once told me they last the shearling lines boots differently And to take the same size.
