    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    This is my only derby with captoe in the F last, like the shoe and the color oxblood too, I enjoy wearing this one - a lot. I think it would look good with a medallion too?

    Yes they are differences but the recommendation I've received from several members is to stay with the same size in both, that's what I meant.



    Do you mean in fit?, I take both in the same size and they fit very well, the shape is different, the F being narrower and more elongated as you know, with a higher instep.

    Very nice. The heel counter is something I've not seen on this model before. Did you request a special counter?
