WOOT! This has been on my to-do list for a long time. Maybe a year ago I pestered both Aerostich and Motonation and finally got myself 4 complete sets of buckles and straps etc. I finally got around to hunting down a cobbler who was willing to take on the job. Here are the results: I am very pleased so far (of course, I've only ridden about 20 miles back from the cobbler to my house. But he seems to have done a perfect job and he only charged me $35. Very fast turnaround time, as well (a couple of days). So ... 2 thumbs up to Paul's Shoe Repair 7 Bartlet Street Andover, MA 01810 (978) 474-9320 I am ONLY a satisfied customer and I gain nothing from this. Paul is a great guy, used to be a long distance iron butt rider, and he frequently does repairs for motorcyclists and motorcycle racers (from what he told me). I paid about $50 for the 4 sets of buckles and $35 for the conversion. Now I never have to worry about my velcros wearing out.
