    Did you know that those shoes are not Rancourt? They are made by Oak Street Bootmakers.

    Incidentally, I have a pair of Rancourt Venetian loafers in 11D for sale :)

    Ah I didn't. The listing was confusing but appreciate the clarification. I'll check out your listing too.

    So I spoke via email with Donna at Rancourt. Apparently they are still able to make some shoes with the "leather rugby sole" which is the older, lighter colored (and perhaps less durable) sole they've used on their loafers in the past. This, however, would convert it to a "custom" shoe and there are no returns.

    I haven't heard back from her yet on how (if at all) that would change the pricing to reflect a MTO order. I bought the loafers with 10% off (first time ordering from them directly), so I paid $585.

    Anyone have the new Carson lows? Thinking of picking up a pair if they end up having a memorial day sale. $175 is just a bit steep for sneakers. Also, anyone know if they are re-soleable?

    I remember when they released their Court Low/high collection it was met with criticism since they would not be able to do a resole. I am not sure if that's changed but I recently asked about the new traveler sole on their Essex line and was told they were not eligible for refurb.

    Edit: just checked old messages and the response I got was "... any cup sole cannot be replaced without destroying the uppers...".

    I just sent back my whiskey shell venetians for resole, the uppers were coming apart from the sole. I don't remember if they were lined or not. Will need to double check if I can tell from the pictures I have.

    I look forward to hearing the results! I know that the venetians done for leffot and bb are both unlined. Did you store them with trees?

    My venetians are the Leffot ones. I did not store them with trees, just newspaper as I don't want them to stretch.
