Ended up going with the 12D to be safe. I'm in canada so no where to try these lasts on. I figured it's safer to err on the narrow side and get them streched.

X-Post from the Non-Alden Shell thread.

Received these today from a fellow member.

Glad I went with my instinct and went half size down from Brannock like my other Rancourt Venetians.

any pics of the Fore Boot in the wild?

Was ordering a pair of shoes for my friend as a bday gift and realized how much up charge is being charged for a MTO.

Miss the good old days when MTO didn't cost any extra.

Can anyone advise on how the driving moc - http://www.rancourtandcompany.com/men-s/american-driving-mocs/venetian-driving-moc.html - fits in comparison to Alden Barrie last?
post #7176 of 7403
@scottcw I wear the same number size in Rancourts and Barrie (11), but I need an E in Rancourt vs. a D in Barrie. Not sure I'm entirely typical though.

Another non typical comparison --- 9EEE Barrie and 10EE Rancourt (would be 9.5EEE if they offered it).

Anyone give any advice on the rancourt ranger moc for sizing? Measured slightly below 10 and in the center of W8 with the shoe fit guide, which makes me a 10D. However, i was talking to costumer service at Rancourt the other day and they recommended me to go 1/2 size down(9.5E), since the shoe tend to stretch. According to Rancourt, the interior length of 9.5 is 273mm, which is to short for me(left foot is 270mm and right 277mm), and size 10 is just 280mm.
I just don’t know if 9.5 will even stretch enough or that 10 will stretch too much. What is your experience on the ranger mocs? Should i go with 9.5E or 10D?

What is your Brannock size?

Never tried, hard to find where i live(in Sweden..)

ollaberghen I'd say not to follow that advice to size down. A shoe that's too short is not going to stretch to fit. Your main stretch will come in the width in my experience.

Are you looking at Chromexcel? That will stretch the most. Other leathers some, but not as much.

You don't need a lot of room in the toes for a handsewn, but I can't see following advice to start with shoes that are too short and expecting them to fit eventually.

Doesn't make any sense to me as well...why would Rancourt advise me to go down 1/2 size, despite the fact i gave them all of my measurements?

Yes, i am looking at the Chromexcel. That's why they would not suggest going any larger because the shoes will stretch significantly, lengthwise as well i assume other wise they wouldn't have recommended 9.5E? You don't think it's possible to stretch it a few millimeters using shoe tree etc.?

I fit 9.5W in my dad's Sperry top sider bahama, but i usually wear 10D in asics and converse. (It is not that common to choose width size when you buy shoes here in Sweden, everything is pretty much standard width size. I suspect i'm having wide feet, always difficult to find the proper size)

With your experience FrankCowperwood, what would you suggest?

For you guys wearing E width handsewns, any recommendations for a durable, everyday casual boot ? I'm talking Blake boot style, not handsewns. I've heard rumor about Rancourt coming out with an E width for the John last, or a new last entirely, I'm not sure. But until then, any suggestions for different companies offering a higher volume boot?

I may be stating the obvious, but what about Alden or Allen Edmonds?

Sorry for the late reply, but even with the stretch of CXL I wouldn't knowingly order shoes too short. That's my personal thought. Perhaps consider a leather with less stretch like bulldog or a suede. Then you don't have to in to account.
