I've asked Chay to switch the top hooks for eyelets and the two sets of eyelets below the hooks for hooks. It would make them a little quicker on/off when in a rush, which I always am. I'm really grateful to Chay and the rest of AS for being so flexible about these details. Can't wait to get them and wear them on a long ride in the rain.


Very nice boots. Seems like the customer for a pair of AS Handgrade gets top notch service.

One wonders if such is possible with G&G and EG?

Fantastic boots. I used to do a lot of long range motorcycle touring and would have loved a pair of those boots--great choice and a very good use of shell. Wear them in good health and keep the rubber side down.

One of the best things with AS is their flexibility with the details. Should turn out to be a great looking boot!

Nice boots, but won't they get smashed up?

Not my style but subscribing to the thread. I have the AS Havant chukkas and Exeter loafers.

I hope not! Shell is really tough. I've used a pair of shell chucks from Ron Rider for almost five years of urban commutes and they've held up great. Occasionally they get scuffed and the rubber areas of the soles melt a bit if they bump the exhaust pipe, but they've held up well. The only way they'd be seriously damaged imo is in a serious accident. So, of course, I hope not!

Can't go wrong with the durability of shell! Always wear a helmet!
