Which leather stretches more, CXL or Tucson bison?
post #7352 of 7403
Not noticing a lot of stretch in my bison ranger mocs, which I'm wearing today.

Agree. CXL will definitely stretch more than bison. In fact I don't find that the bison stretches much at all.

First wearing today for Robinson ranger mocs in dark olive cxl. Some of you may remember me saying I decided on the clymer moc but I actually switched my order at the last minute so I could have the rlh sole. Really glad I didn't size down with these as the fit is nice and snug. Thanks to all who helped with advice and sizing.

Agree on the bison not stretching much at all.

This has probably been brought up before, but do you guys shoe tree your handsewns?

I don't. I feel like they stretch the width too much and part of the lure of handsewns are the glove-like fit.

That makes sense. I certainly don't want them to get stretched out. Thanks! Kind of feels weird not using shoe trees for what's not exactly an inexpensive pair of shoes but I guess I'll get over it.

Dark olive looks great! I think you'll be happy with that RLH sole.

I have at times (I have really good intentions about show care and then tend to get distracted...), and haven't noticed it to be detrimental. Not sure about CXL stretch there is always a wild card. But maybe get a shoe tree that's a size smaller than the shoe, if possible and then you'll get some of the benefits of the cedar and the shape without stretching...

Thanks @FrankCowperwood, that's not a bad idea about getting smaller trees. I might occasionally use a pair that I got for my wife but of course she never uses haha.

Looking at the new Knox Boot on a 115 last. Does it fit true to size?

According to an email I just received from Rancourt introducing the Knox boot, the 115 fits TTS.

I might have to put a pair in suede on my wishlist for 2017; they look pretty great.

I'd say so. I tried a pair once and something about the instep didn't work for me personally. But otherwise I think true to size should work.
