Yes, not sure of your location but SFA is a large sort of luxury retailer here in the States, found in large cities
Thanks for ellaborating. I live in Europe (EU) and would love to find similar herringbone tweed trousers for winter.

Picked up these Redwing steel toe boots on eBay about 10 years ago, NOS, they seem to date back to the early '90s. They came in their original box with some pretty cool tags and brochures included in the box about the type of leather, the strength of the steel toe, etc. They were made with what they called "Grizzly", an oiled leather that has a lot of the same characteristics as CXL. I wore them for work for 5 years or so but they've been retired for the past 5 years. Pulled them out and brushed them with a stiff horsehair brush and they came back to life. Ordered some official Redwing boot oil to give them some love. They will be back in my boot rotation this fall/winter, enjoy:
These are awesome, got me wanting to scour eBay.

You’ve likely worked this out, but they do have an on line presence.

Rancourt & Co Harrison Redux Boots in Horween Natural CXL. Very different from what we are used to seeing here on these pages.

Wow these seem awesome, are they comfortable? I bought some Red Wings and they were like bear traps on my feet so would be interested to swap them for these.
They are super comfortable. They have a glove like feeling, are fully lined inside and the soles are the Lactae Havea Rally soles which are something else entirely in comfort. Have never worn a Red Wing and having heard the stories I don't think I ever will. Got them for USD 215 in their Holiday Pre-order which I think is an excellent value.

Just to note, these are my first wear and first experience with Rancourt as well as the soles so cannot speak of their longevity. Maybe we will both find out in due course :)
Cheers,

I’m looking for Red Wing experience

I normally wear boots in size range of 13B to 14AA. I got these Red Wing 10877s in a 14B, expecting to use an insole and wear slightly thicker socks.

Will these break in faster if I wear them without an insole for a while?
