    These were a special collaboration between Rancourt & Co. and Leffot that are long sold out and unavailable. Rancourt does not currently offer this style of venetian loafer. They were dubbed the "IVY" model and styled after early 1960's venetians. Handcrafted in a beautiful navy shell cordovan (ideally paired with blazer and flannels) these are shoes built to last a lifetime!

    I have included a photo of the original sales receipt. They were purchased in Oct. 2012 (they've been unavailable since!) and remain unworn to this day. They have been sitting in shoeboxes on the top shelf of my closet ever since and remain in impeccably new and pristine condition; not worn once as evidenced from the unblemished leather soles. I originally paid $650 plus postage - I'm asking only $575 $550 plus shipping. These are rare masterstrokes of perfection in shoe design and you aren't likely to see them offered again.

    I have two pairs to offer in either navy or black shell cordovan - take your pick! I'd be glad to upload more photos on request of either pair.

    I have the same pair to offer in black shell cordovan as well - same size 8!


    I can upload photos of the black venetians on request; you can see them cut off in the first photo. They are both in the same minty new condition.

    can you compare the sizing to a similar shoe? Perhaps the brooks brothers shell penny loafer by Alden? Thanks

    Hi,

    Unfortunately I don't have the Brooks shell penny to offer a comparison but I would suggest using the following chart for the most accurate measurements: http://www.rancourtandcompany.com/sizing

    Thanks so much!
