    Just heard back from Kyle himself (love the personal touch)

    He can build me a black chromexcel model - which i think is going to make this shoes amazing.

    Kyle suggest I buy a 9.5 D; I'm a Alden Barrie 9 and a Aberdeen 9.5 - for reference.

    I just asked him on how I can formally put in the order - i'll let you all know how it goes.

    (on a side note - this is why "small" family businesses rule!)

    This is incorrect. 1/2 size is actually about 3/16ths of an inch (~0.2 inches).

    And once you get the details confirmed, you'll have the shoes in less than a month (they were quoting shipping two weeks from order over the summer, if that still holds...). Not, ahem, 9 to 12 months...

    +1 for sure for Rancourt service and +1 for quality.

    My experience with Rancourt and Kyle in particular was excellent.

    This question come up so often, we should compile a list of different special shoes / boots that are regularly stocked by stores (as opposed to special orders)... For example


    Color 8
    "Tanker" norweigian split toe, speedhooks, commando sole, barrie last - Context

    Cigar
    Captoe boot, speed hooks, commando sole, grant last - Alden DC
    "JC" Cigar Indy, speedhooks, commando sole, trubalance - Leffot NY

    Ravello
    "Day Tripper" captoe boot, speed hooks, waterlock sole, grant last - Leffot NY
    "Brixton" wingtip boot, all eyelets, barrie last - Epaulet NY
    "Hunting" captoe boot, speedhooks, waterlock sole, barrie last - Tassels HK

    Brown Chromexcel
    Indy boot,"dress" finishings, commando sole - Leather Soul Hawaii
    Roy boot, plain toe, barrie last, crepe sole - Context

    etc

    Sorry for the nooby question, but how versatile are the wingtip boots with the commando sole? Are they good for rain/slush/snow? Just rain? Rain and slush?

    Those look awesome. Cigar is quickly replacing Color 8 as my fave.

    Woops, these actually did sell already...time to update my sig! There's a chance I could have gotten a little more money on eBay, but their fees are ridiculous and I'd rather not deal with them when it comes to selling stuff most of the time.
