    I have not, but just checked those out. Those are cool. Unfortunately out of stock of the tan suede ones which is what I would want. I would still question sizing though.

      I can't vouch for those, but I can vouch for astorflex chukkas as being rather high quality for their price. Given my very, very positive experience with my 3 pairs of astorflex chukkas, I would have zero hesitation in purchasing any astorflex footwear I fancied. They truly seem to make a quality product for a relative bargain price.

        Well, after much thought, I purchased the Astorflex Pantoflex Travel loafers in tan.

        Also, it appears that some of the suede options have restocked.

          Darn... you got my hopes up. I just saw this and checked out Huckberry hoping they'd have what I want in stock. I want the Travel loafers in Sand. What size did you order? I wear a 11.5 in Nike athletic shoes and typically a 10.5 in dress shoes. I think I saw these run large, but I'm not sure if that is based off of a dress shoe size or what. I heard back from Jack Erwin, and they won't be restocking the Renwick's, so the Travel loafers look like they might be the winner for me. I'm just hoping they get what I want back in stock and able to ship them in time prior to my vacation in 4 weeks.

            I know Huckberry is pretty quick to ship- I placed my order on Thursday/Friday of last week and am getting them in today. I ordered tan (non-suede) in an 8, since I'm normally an 8.5 in Nike/Converse and 8.5D in Allen Edmonds dress shoes and I hear that Astorflex runs large.

              I’m glad I went with the 8- they fit perfectly. Leather definitely feels and looks good. Doesn’t feel cheap. Very comfortable shoe.

                On the sizing, would you say they more closely follow dress shoes? I size down a full size from athletic to dress shoes. If they are closer to dress shoes, in theory I should get a 10. If they are closer to athletic shoes, I might be an 11. I'm guessing a 10 would be safer if they run large. But I need them to be in stock to even have this problem.

                  That's hard for me to say exactly, since I wear the same size in dress shoes as I do sneakers..

                    Dinner clothing is super important when you go on vacation. I've been pretty unlucky to find that out the hard way. My family and I looked up some yacht rentals in Miami and ended up going on vacation with some work colleagues of ours. I wasn't used to going with people I only see at work every day and with whom I can't just eat in sweats. When I was packing my luggage, I somehow forgot to bring any other clothes than a swimsuit, pair of shorts and a few old t-shirts. Everybody had dinner clothing except me! I was in no way prepared for that situation, and it was incredibly awkward. That's why I advise bringing some kind of dinner clothing with you.
