    I am an 8E on the Brannock device and my Rancourt chukkas are an 8E and fit perfectly. My Alden chukkas on the Barrie last are all 7.5E.

    I wear a 11e in most shoes except trubalance where I go a D. But 11e in rancourt have pretty much been spot on

    I wear a 12 D in AE and Alden and the same size in these. I'd advise getting a pair from jackspade.com - they're $100! Just search under "Barron"

    I prefer lined and then wearing a terry cloth insole found easily on amazon.

    ^ Not the same pair but I have the beef roll pennys and find they're fairly versatile - work great with chinos and dark/selvedge denim. I'd say go for it.

    And I'm in Toronto too /same size if they don't work out for you :D

    Yes, was looking at them on JackSpade.com. There was an additional 25% off last week, so I will wait for the next one to pull the trigger. Which AE lasts are you referencing for size?

    Might be a bit tough to see but these are starting to develop a really nice patina already

    Quoted the image to make it larger for everyone's viewing pleasure. These look good. I like the flat laces on them and the eyelet finish.

    Thanks so much! Yes, I swapped out the laces for flat waxed laces from Kirby at Hanger Project. I also have some dark blue ones that look quite good as well; I will make sure I post a pic next time I have them in.

    Yes, it is espresso finish with brown (no contrast stitching) with a natural edge stain and tan stitching on the welt, brass eyelets, leather midsole and mini lug (commando) sole

    They are a few months old and have been worn 10-15 times. The espresso finish is becoming a bit less uniform and some nice medium tone browns are emerging.

    Sending my brown ranger-mocs w/white camp soles in for a resoling. Don't quite need it yet (though I've worn them down to the stitching on the heels) but after I got #8 boat shoes with white soles, I realized I messed up on versatility. So I'm getting the ranger mocs done with the natural aspen lactae hevea. It just looks gorgeous, and will hopefully keep me from buying another pair of Rancourts. If i could do it over, I'd get #8 ranger-mocs and natty cxl boat shoes. Maybe once I eventually destroy these.
