Extra Cost Options
While not necessary for durability, we offer eyelets to those who want them for a small extra charge. See the order form for the current price of this option. Here's a picture of a shoe which includes them to illustrate their appearance.
Lace-Up Hook-&-Loop Quick-Release
We offer this easy-in-easy-out option on any of our high- and extra-high-top lace-up shoes, and we offer a variation on this design on many of our shaft-style boots. See the order form for the current price of this option.
As the illustrations show, the hook-&-loop opening extends very close to the sole, allowing ease of access without having to tie or untie the laces, while the solid brass snap assures consistent fit and reinforces the grip of the hook-&loop fastener.
We stock hook-&-loop fastener in a wide variety of colors, allowing us to make our Quick-Release feature as discrete as possible. We also stock snaps in several different finishes, including nickle-plated brass and anodized brass. The location of the quick-release feature on the instep side of the shoe also helps to make it less conspicuous. The construction of the balance of the shoe remains unchanged, other than a slight shortening of the padding in the collar.
Quick-Release Mary Jane Strap-&-Buckle Feature
We use a special Pull-The-Dot™ snap for our Mary Jane quick-release option. Pull-The-Dot™ snaps will only release when pulled in the right direction. In the case of our Mary Janes, you pull up on the leather tab at the end of the buckle elastic assembly (see the photos). This provides a secure attachment that will only open when you want it to, but will open easily then. Pull-The-Dot™ snaps have been approved and are in use all over the world in military applications where dependable, strong quick-release fasteners are required. See the order form for the current price of this option.
As the pictures illustrate, this arrangement can be used like a traditional buckle and strap, or you can leave the strap and buckle attached and simply pull the snap tab to release. When worn, this quick-release arrangement is hard to distinguish from it's non-quick-release cousins.
