Rancourt & Co. is no stranger to the challenges of labor shortages and supply chain disruptions—Mike and Kyle Rancourt told us as much when we spoke to them. To mitigate these issues, Rancourt has found great success using a crowdfunding approach.
Over the past couple of years, they’ve occasionally opened up pre-orders for some of their popular styles, crowdfunding them at what are essentially wholesale prices. Folks fund the styles they want, and Rancourt is then able to precisely plot out a production schedule and gather the necessary materials to deliver some shoes at a killer deal. It’s a win-win.
Rancourt is trying something a little different with their crowdfunding, and with this latest campaign they’re catering to the holiday shopping crowd. Yes, we know it’s August, but like we mentioned above, you’re trading off a few months’ wait for getting some made-in-Maine essentials at unbeatable prices.
There’s a lot to choose from here—all kinds of handsewn boots, chukkas, camp-mocs, ranger-mocs, and even a couple of Rancourt’s cap-toed Byron Boots—with prices starting as low as $175.
Whether you’re hoping to get your Christmas shopping done early, or if you’re just looking to provide yourself with some delayed gratification, this sale is definitely worth checking out. Don’t tarry, though…some pre-orders are already closed, and the whole campaign will be running for just a few more weeks!
