    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).

You could probably wear the suede mocs in a similar way, but I feel like the chunkier sole would make them look a little weirder with shorts instead of full pants, which is why I didn't grab those too. If you search the forums for "boat shoes" you'll find plenty of discussion on how to wear them. Also, doesn't hurt to have a boat to wear them on!

    +1. I just don't really know what size I am in Rancourt. I had a pair of 10D Rancourts once that were too small so I sold them. Not sure if I need to go up a width or a 1/2 size. FWIW my 9.5D Oak Street trail oxfords are bigger and wider than my 10D Rancourts were and fit me better. Rancourts are obviously great shoes, I just need to try some different sizes on before blind buying.

    You guys... are... killing me. I've wanted a pair of navy rancourts forever.

    And those hiking boots, I've wanted a pair in tan for almost as long. Will probably throw some turquoise laces on those.

    Ridiculous. I wonder how they are doing over in that 60 days of not spending thread... haven't seen anyone post in a while.
