Rancourt has been making shoes since 1967 and since then the American company has picked up a loyal following for its well-crafted footwear and styles like its famous Beefroll Penny Loafer that helped put the brand on the map. This year, after two years of development, the company introduces its first sneaker, the Court Classic.
Available in a low and mid-top style, Rancourt's Court Classic was created to introduce a well-crafted, American-made sneaker at a decent price point. Made in Maine, the shoes feature a leather upper that uses a full-grain cowhide that is tanned in their home state by Tasman Leather Group. It's then lined with Horween Casco horsehide lining, and is finished with a custom molded German footbed and a cup sole from Vibram which is their first sneaker sole.
$250-$265 ($200-$215 for early pre-orders), available now at rancourtandcompany.com
