Huckberry said their discovery of Astorflex sparked a moment of “disbelief”, and yeah, same.

Astroflex’s Greenflex chukkas, or desert boots, if you will, are handmade in Italy. They feature a comfortable and supportive memory foam footbed, and...

European leather [that] is processed slowly for 30 days in a mixture of water, oak bark, and powdered mimosa, then softened in barrels with animal fats and aniline days to produce a suede leather that is exceptionally soft and makes less of an impact on the environment than other, more chemical leather treatments.

The Greenflex achieves the feel and support you should demand from an ultramodern shoe using old-fashioned, even ancient methods, so you’re not sacrificing the comfort of Flyknit to get the looks of Frye. The break-in time for these is zero seconds.


That being said, these shoes are not light. Leather, rubber, and memory foam have weight, and you should anticipate that when purchasing. These are boots, just ridiculously soft ones.

You can be sure I’ll be writing about their Chelsea boots in the future.
