Noob question: Can the boat shoes be resoled?
Yes, they can be resoled.
I believe Native Americans invented moccasin construction and the first use was as unsoled shoes that we would call loafers or slippers.
Enjoyed meeting Kyle at Rancourt a week or so ago. Very friendly and he knows his stuff. Ordered a pair of venetian loafers.
Had my brown CXL pinch pennies on this morning.
Got my Rancourt for RL Telford boat shoes in today. I'm very, very happy with them.
Just got my Ranger mocs today. I'm on the fence as to whether they are a half size long or not. How much heel slip should I be having out of the gate and/or how much room should there be in the back of the shoe if I cram my foot all they way forward?
I have the similar issue myself the other day as the leather stretched out a little after some wearing. I mself then printed the scale that's available on rancourt and found out that I measure a 10.5D as oppose to a 11D on AE provided measurements. However if I tighten up a little of the shoe lace no heel slippage. So I guess I will definitely order 10.5D for my loafer in the future.
Not sure if anyone else is experiencing the same. However, the consensus on loafer seems to vary as well.
If there is heel slip when the shoes are properly laced up, they could be a half size too large.
Definitely feel the same way. We're the same size too.
This pictures has caused me to need a pair of green CXL Rancourts...
Hmmm, I need to follow up on my MTO request. Not CXL, though.
Great shoes. I will order a pair.
Looks like a decent deal at Barneys:
That IS a good deal.
I saw a pair of Eastland similar to that, but made in China, for the same price at the local Nordstroms.
Those are ugly as sin. That nasty sole ruins an otherwise handsome shoe. Rancourts are further reduced at RL. $150.
+1. I'm not a big fan of the wedge sole either. Leave it to the ladies.
