In our opinion, the only thing better than a pair of shoes that looks brand spanking new is a pair of shoes that look like they have some stories of their own to tell.  If we play our cards right, a pair from Rancourt & Company’s new Horween Essex Collection will do both.  It’ll just take a few years.

With six options to choose from, it’s virtually impossible to pick a favorite of the Essex collection.  From Read boatshoes, to their classic beefroll loafer, to the fantastic looking Blake boot, and everything in between, Rancourt really went all out this time.  Featuring Horween Essex leather that is drum tanned with the same natural extracts that is used in Horween’s world renowned shell cordovan, this leather is made to develop quite a patina, and we can’t wait to see the end product.  In the meantime, we’ll enjoy a great looking light leather that will evolve slightly with each and every wear.
