Established in 1967 in Lewiston, Maine, by David Rancourt, Rancourt & Company started out as family-owned shop that quickly grew into producing luxury calfskin loafers for some of the best brands in the world. Today, the factory is still family-owned (and based in Lewiston) and is committed to sourcing the highest-quality materials and crafting some of the best shoes in the world. This exclusive-to-us horse-bit loafer features an unlined Chromexcel® leather upper that's made in the U.S. by the Horween Leather Company. (Chromexcel refers to a highly specialized dyeing process that results in a one-of-a-kind, vintage look.) and oiled leather outsoles, for a more durable and water-resistant finish.
