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.

    Tournament Hi's are nice, I wish they would make it with the slim sole. [​IMG] Vintage Achilles is nice, I think Drew has the all wht iirc. It's like a sturdier version of the YSL Rollins.

    R_Six recently said something about Achilles Mids fitting smaller than Achilles Hi's and Low's. Is there a general consensus on this (for anyone who has tried on Mids and either or both)?

    Was that stitched together by a blind person?

    I am a 45 in mids, but I could take a 44 in lows (I have a pair of 45s and I could size down for a snugger fit particularly in the heel). I do not know about the hi's, I'd ask Drew.

    I fit the exact same size in Achilles low, mid and hi. However, the bballs fit tighter IMO than the Achilles, particularly around the ball and instep, and opening up the lacing more doesn't help like it does with the Achilles.

    Mids are also getting the painted treatment.

    Those braids look like little tentacles creeping out of your shoes. Do not want.

    They're alright but the concept is pretty dumb if you need to change the laces. Also, the painted mids aren't that special.
