1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Next outlet sale is in February, according to Edward in Freeport. I stopped in to see him last week.

    Do you know if they carry the brown suede Malvern chukkas? I might give them a call in February if that is the case :D

    They run narrow. Just FYI. I am on the verge of a D/E width and, in retrospect, I sort of wish I'd bought an E in these.

    I didn't notice but wasn't looking either. Best bet is to drop him a line by email or phone.

    I've got the Malvern in brown calfskin and wear the same size and width as my Park Avenues and Strands. YMMV.

    ???? You're holding up two walnut Strands . . . both right shoes . . . . and different colors . . . .. One looks brand new out of the box and the other has the darker color that walnut Strands get after a few months of use. What am I missing?

    Cue AE seconds joke that the defect on this pair is that they are both for the right foot.

    I had the pebble ones (returned them due to a mfg defect) and an 11D fit well. I now have the suede ones in the same size and they feel slightly more snug.
