Eastland Made in Maine - Page 4

Eastland Kennebunk in brown (made by Rancourt?). The toebox is a little longer and sleeker on these than maybe your standard moc boot. Stitch quality seems great. The leather is some type of oil-tanned Horweenn that shows a ton of grain and is thick and rigid out of the box. Leather midsole, leather insole with the same leather as the exterior. Real life color is a medium, ruddy brown, slightly reddish in some light.
I think the one thing they should have done was use a flat outsole, instead of the block heel Vibram type that's on there.
While we're kinda talking about Rancourt, I think these Acorn Latigo Glace mid boots they're doing for Taylor Stitch are pretty nice.

Ordered some tan suede falmouths from Gilt. I should've know better but the suede is dirty and its texture is really inconsistent. Definitely going back.
On a side note, the details on my OSB Trail Oxfords are way nicer than these. I've heard the rumors that OSB, Rancourts, and Eastland's are all made in the same factory, so I just wanted to add that in here.
The top heel inner stitching is a bit hurting at the moment, I think it will ease quickly as the shoes strecth with wear.
