post #7081 of 7493

Hi All - Looking for some sizing advice on the beefrolls. I've read just about everything I could find about the sizing of these online but I'm curious if you guys have any thoughts. I own a pair of camp mocs in a size 8D and they fit really well. If I push my toes all the way forward I can squeeze my index finger in behind my heel. I get a bit of slip but nothing abnormal I don't think. I have a pretty high instep, especially on the right foot and I'm curious if you would recommend sticking with the 8 or sizing down to a 7.5D is recommended. I also have relatively short toes, so I'm thinking 8 still may be best for ball length rather than whole foot. Another size of mine for reference is 7.5E on the 65 last. Thanks in advance for your advice. Wish I could try these on somewhere locally.

@maida the camp mocs are from Rancourt?

Sounds to me that you should take the same size in the beefrolls.

Hey Frank,

 

I should have specified. They are indeed from Rancourt. Appreciate the reply!

Your feet sound like mine as I take an 8 but with some room in my ranger mocs.  For me it would come down to how I plan to wear the beefrolls.  If sockless, then I would size down.  If with socks, then stick with the same size.

That is the dilemma unfortunately. I'd wear primarily sockless but would like the option to wear with thin socks and not feel like they are too small.

@maida are the shoes you are looking at chromexcel? As you may know, that had a good amount of stretch in it so it might be hard to hit the sweet spot if you are too particular about fit.

How much space do you have in front of your toes in the camp Mocs? I think about a pencil's width is all you really need with handsewns. If you've got more than that you may be able to size down .5 if you want to.

@rusticchasm - haha - someday!

 

@FrankCowperwood looking at Chromexcel. I've got just a bit more than a pencil width so I am thinking 7.5 is the play. Thanks for the advice

Might be more effort than you're willing to make, but have you considered their made to fit program (http://www.rancourtandcompany.com/made-to-fit.html)?

Just put in my Rancourt order for the season! I went with a pair of #8 shell rangers, on the chocolate camp moc sole, bright brass eyelets. And a caramel 3-eyelet shell cordovan boat shoe, white sipped sole, antique brass eyelets. Current turnaround time is about 2-3 weeks.

These are replacing all the mis-sized pairs I've bought in the past, where I thought they should fit like a glove and ignored that my toes touch the front when I walk. These are being sized like normal shoes, understanding that toe room isn't a bad thing. So instead of 9.5EE or 10Ds, these are 10.5E.

I have a pair of #8 LHS's on the way. But still, I'm contemplating putting in an order of shell camp mocs as well, but not sure what I'd get in those. Probably #8 shell on a brick red camp moc sole, right? Or caramel on brick red.

I vote caramel on brick.

 

Did they hit you hard with an uncharge?

post #7093 of 7493
Brick for sure. Carmel would look outstanding though #8 and brick has to be a winning combo.

I'm oddly attracted to the Mimosa calf buckle loafers.

I put the order through on the website, and noted the 3-eyelet in the notes (and called it in to confirm), and nothing was mentioned about it being more expensive because of the 3-eyelets. The cost was $675 for the boat shoes, $680 for the rangers. Is that the upcharge you mean, vs. what it would have been in the old days, without the $50-100 extra price? (which they actually call a discount for pre-specced shoes). Or do you think there should have been more?

If I was going to spring for shell, I'd want to pair it with one of the Reltex soles for something a bit nicer. They are incredibly comfortable and long-wearing.

Today I sent my four-year old #8 CXL + Reltex crepe sole ranger mocs back for refurbishment. They've easily seen more wear than any other shoes I've ever owned and I probably could have squeezed another spring/summer out of them if I really wanted to. I'm trying the Reltex Shaker sole this time. Can't wait to see the results.
