    i'd never pay $600, but it's definitely worth a couple hundred at least. though hopefully the weather will turn nice and i won't need these for awhile

    Keep checking. Stp had been adding sizes here and there throughout the past 2 days. Got my size in rust that popped up an hour ago

    Also, code EB040114A at STP gets you an additional 35% off. Just snagged a pair of 1Ks for $148 & free shipping. Here's hoping the 2nds are decent!

    these things are really nice and are a definite steal for $99, and they came with saphir bags too one downer for me though- mine arrived with 2 pairs of black laces... i was so ready to slap on those tan ones from their pictures!

    Well, I didn't really "need" these at all, but for $99 why not?
    Great find!

    Just called and changed my boat shoe order from a 9 to a 9.5. 9.5 is my brannock and what I wear in most US shoes, but usually I size down in boat shoes and loafers... Sounds like these should run TTS though, from what I've read. Tried to skim as many posts as possible before deciding, because I didn't want my size to sell out. I'd rather have a boat shoe thats a little too loose than too tight.

    Boat shoes, especially navy, go with everything casual. My favorite look is with navy shorts and a white polo. In summer its really my go to shoe. Unfortunately, my navy Sperrys are starting to wear all the way through the heel and the sole has yellowed. Couldn't have been better timing for this sale, since I've been on the fence about ordering some from Rancourt - but the 2-3 week wait always put me off.

    Love the images from this article on IWC from ACL, they're all wearing navy blue boat shoes:

    Pretty much. For pants, I'd probably stay away from doing navy on navy just so it isn't perfectly monotone, but navy shoes with navy shorts is a cool look (likely a lighter shirt). Anything light/baby blue, or even a turquoise or royal could be fun. If there's some differentiation in the colors, I think blue and grey go well together (or blue and blue).

    I'd just note that if you're doing two 'colors' with your shoes and your shorts/pants (as opposed to something more neutral), it likely calls for a neutral or toned down shirt.
    Okay, lots of good info. Once the boat shoes come in, I'm going to head to the mall to see what you're saying. Thanks!

    You can wear boat shoes with just about anything, but shorts and chinos will be best. No need to only wear navy boat shoes with just tan/off-white--summer is more colorful anyway. They'd look good with any of the above in blue, grey, even a light yellow, red, etc. I prefer my boat shoes to be dark brown with white sole, but I'd have grabbed navy Rancourts at that price no questions (if they had my size).
