r/goodyearwelt is a more distilled version of SF. I'm probably more frequent over there at this point and there's a good number of us who cross over, we identify each other by the shoes we post. Basically, it's mostly shoe and leather porn, and daily general discussions, a little bit more critical on brands like Alden, and very much EMF focused. But not as many people playing in the ultra-EMF range, as on SF. I don't think too many people on GYW have G&G, EGs, or St. Crispins, yet, but there are a lot of Vibergs over there.
And it's almost completely free of storm clouds, hubberds, or uncles, which have weighed down a lot of other SF threads (not Vibergs, though).
The only thing not allowed on GYW is cemented construction (including high-end sneakers mostly, though people discuss them a bit in GD). Hand stitched, blake stitched, rapid stitched, and GYW are all allowed and welcomed. You'll see some CP/Balmain/MMM/Gats in the WSAYWT, but not as standalone threads.
