Although not directly inspired by Garland's above post, I ended up buying some brown bisons at ToBox, here in Philly. I went with my Brannock size of 10D, which is also my size for AE PAs, Leeds, and Dundees. That said, they are not a generous 10D, so people might want to size up a half size, in general...
They look and feel great...excellent quality...my first pair of Rancourts. The soles are super soft...wonderful for walking on hard sidewalks. The deep tread should be good for snow, but I worry that they might wear down quickly. They are completely leather lined. Hope the photos below are okay.
