I really wanted to love these shoes. They were a gift to celebrate a promotion. I chose the green version, and I’m a big fan of green. Alas, it would not be. The shipping was relatively quick. I didn’t have to wait 4 weeks for them to be shipped, as I guess I have a somewhat-standard size (10.5 E)
My biggest issue was that the color didn’t match the photos in the website. The loafers were much darker – almost black. It took a strong LED flashlight or holding them outside under the sun to see any semblance of green. So that was a bummer. The inside of the tongue did show a good green, but it would never be seen.
Secondly, the photos on the website aren’t accurate in the heel construction on the sole. The entire heel was covered in rubber – not the “notched” appearance of rubber fitting into leather like a jigsaw puzzle piece as depicted in the photos.
Lastly, the interior had two defects. The left shoe had several splotches – looked like green dye or ink. Perhaps they tried dyeing black leather? Doubt it, but it would explain matters. Also on the left, there was also some sort of digital code in inch-high letters on the leather on the inside of the upper that was disconcerting.
I had used the measuring system, and it worked well. Other than being too-dark, my RIGHT shoe felt great. My left shoe had the above defects and was a half-size too small – if there’s a next time I’ll order two different sizes for my feet. If you have one foot slightly larger, explore Rancourt’s…
