Thank you sir.
It's great to see more AS variety. The hatch grain chukka is a nice addition. I have to admit the 724 last is probably the nicest last that is comfortable. I'm actually curious as to how tighter the E fitting is compared to the standard F.
I have little experience with AS, but I have to agree that a little more variety would be nice. I am glad they came out with the Radwell just before I purchased a pair of chukkas as I really like these. However the only other shoes in their lineup I really like would be the Miller MTO that you have, and maybe their Ramsey's.
Hunt is a really nice full brogue. That is of course if one like full brogues
AFPOS OFFERS FREE LASTED AS TREES for SF members with any full price AS shoe or boot orders (not including sale or clearance shoes and boots) - just add the correct lasted tree to your order then use the code "freetrees" in the payment screens and the cost will be removed for you. You can either have a free AS Belt using the code "free-belt" or AS Lasted trees.
We do carry a small stock of 99, 724 and 109 AS lasted trees, but if we run out of stock in your particular size or it is for another non stock AS last, we will order them for you and send on when they arrive (usually 4-8 weeks from time of ordering).
Looks like a great looking shoe and thanks for the recommendation. I guess part of my reason for not finding more that I like is that I already have something like the others AS offers and there isn't much of a need for those versions or that type of shoe. But even with all of the boots that I have that MTO Miller sticks out. Although I don't really need it, I would still get that one if I had the chance. But since their MTO order program does not appear to be functioning correctly right now I may just have to wait.
I think my boots are a bit special - Please tell me otherwise though. They are Exclusive spec Millers. They came from Richard at Shoehealer last June just before the internet was swamped with pics of those french Millers, albeit Handgrades.
I actually rang Richard to see if I could buy some C&J Somervilles (I think its best to support retailers and manufacturers)- But he told me they were C&J stores only but he had something special coming in - and this is what it was. My understanding was he only had two pairs on 8UK, one pair in brown the other in black. I've never seen them available anywhere else.........
Unfortunately, boots and my low volume slightly wide feet just don't get on.......
Here's Moore Cherry 8.5uk next to CJ 348 9uk. Under is the AS belt "Oak", not conditioned in any way.
My lowndes are ~1 year old and treated with Saphir Pommadier Dark brown. My Moores are just broken in and I have only applied saphir renovateur aswell as some colourless pate de luxe on them.
Cherry Moores look great. Personally think they are hands (feet) down much better than C&J BG. Get some more wear on those Moores!
Lombards in marron and black. Really enjoying them and thinking of the Hannover...
Apologies about the pic quality. .. don't know why my phone does this. ..
I know this was posted a while ago, but I was surprised to see these are still available and at some pretty good prices too:
Thanks for the link $350 wow now that is a good price for the Hannover!
Good deals! Hopefully we'll start seeing more of AS pics on the thread!
