    Something interesting from Leffot: red unlined shell Ivy loafers by Rancourt.

    I wonder if this color is available directly from Rancourt.

    Thank you for your response. I am still worried about the sizing and can't make the decision yet...I don't think I should order in size 6.5d, what Katie from Rancourt suggested. I doubt it since I could fit 5.5D Alden Modified last. According to them, their sizing is slightly bigger than Alden's, thus they recommend to go for a 1/2 larger than my Indy's. However Indy uses very wide last which is unusual. It's a wider than Red Wing or Wolverine competitor. My indy fits me well with thick socks. I am not sure if I should use their MTO program because I am afraid to pick two wrong sizes (and my budget is tight, too T_T). My size could be 5.5D or 6D or 6E or 6.5D. I see a pair of Venetian on ebay right now (luckily) and checked the actual measurements (11" long x 3.75 wide @ widest on the outsole) - they are of course, way too long, and even a 1/2 size down from it(=6.5D, which Rancourt suggested) seem still big to me. Width seem to be ok, it might be too narrow on my feet. Now, would you mind giving me the actual measurements on the outsole of your Navy Mocs? I believe that's most trust worthy. I am very sorry to bug you many times, but I believe it's worth asking before making the decision.

    Pretty interested in getting some Rancourt as the Alden LHS is way out of my budget.

    Any ballpark as to how much an MTO by them may cost?

    Depends on the material and sole. There is generally a $50 up-charge for MTOs, so $275-560. If you want shell, I would just spring for the Aldens. Their finishing on shell is worth the price difference IMO.

    Post pics.

    Also, the LHS is really a different shoe than a Rancourt penny loafer. Difference in price for shell and maybe even calf or suede (particularly with the MTO charge) may make the LHS then thing to buy if that's what you really want. The Rancourts are beautiful shoes in their own right, just not a direct substitute for an Alden LHS. Happy hunting.

    Thank you very much for the link.
    btw, does anybody know what leather they were using for the dark olive Wildwood boot? On the pictures, it shows a distinct grain not unlike the Buckaroo leather Rancourt are using on some of their own shoes, but I haven't seen it in dark olive.

    Good night;-)

    The MTO is free (assuming you use the gift certificate to buy their shoes). Order the two most likely sizes, and you will at least learn something. If the 5.5D is too small and the 6D is too narrow, get a 6E, etc.

    On my Rangers, after mostly weekend wear for 3 months, the length of the sole is 10 5/8". It protrudes a little on the rear, so the shoes is likely closer to 10 1/2" max. The width is about 3 3/4" (measured at the widest point perpendicular to the shoe), but again the sole protrudes, so subtract about 1/8". My foot measures a paltry 9 1/8" by 3 1/2". With socks the fit is great, but probably still a tad long. If I were to get an exclusively sockless pair, I'd probably try for 5.5D, which I'd expect to be snug at first, then worry that it might not stretch enough. In the 5.5D venetians, my toes felt crammed, but there was still (probably too much) heel slippage.

    Thank you so much for the reply! It helps a lot!!

    Noticed that their D width might be tight on my feet...that's probably why they suggested to go up a 1/2 size larger than Alden sizing. D width on Alden Indy could be close to 6E or 6.5D on any other dress shoes.

    I totally missed reading the part that they give you $50 worth gift certificate for next purchase - yes, it's actually free to use MTF if you buy a pair, as you said. I am blind!!

    You can order the made to fit shoes twice with new sizes, but they charge something like $17 the 2nd time.

    Hello Reds Fan,

    I noticed you are not 100% about the sizing of your Field Ranger Shoe. I spoke with our inventory manager and we would like to help you get a pair that is perfect. If you give us the size you want (8 1/2?) I will contact Rancourt & Co and have a pair made for you. Please let me know how I can help.

    best,

    Ryan

    Those are really aging nicely.

    Thank you, sir. They have gotten plenty of casual wear. The thing I've been most impressed with is how sturdy shell really is. Admittedly, I'm not worried about keeping them presentable at the business or formal event level, but shell's really a great leather with age.

    Question for Rancourt experts since I have no exp. with them.

    Is the RL Elrick the same as Rancourt Baldwin? Looks very similar and I was told that the RL was made by Rancourt, also any sizing advice on these , do they run TTS? Or should I size down.

    Thanks in advance.

    Those are for sure a derivative of the Rancourt Baldwin. It looks like the welt stitching is the only thing that is different.

    With respect to their loafers, I always have to size down a 1/2 size. For their boat shoes I'm a perfect 12D - my normal size.
