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.

    Thanks for your input. I will dig more into this thread to figure out if TG73 would work for me. It's looking like it might not though, which is a bit of a bummer.

    fwiw, i take the same size in both lasts, and find them both to be supremely comfortable.

    I love these.. Not normally a monk fan, but between the Deco last and the vintage chestnut finish.. They are up there for me.

    Thanks for your feedback on the TG73 last. Having dug a bit more thoroughly into this thread, it seems like TG73 could either be similar to or tighter than MH71 depending on the particular foot it's on. I think a slightly narrower toe-box, especially at the pinky side of the shoe, would be OK for me, but I'm concerned that the toe-box itself would be too low. I guess the only way to know for sure is to try them on via an online shop. Now I need to decide if I really want to take the plunge...

    yeah, as with all shoes, all the information in the world wont nail it down. a try on is necessary to truly get it right.

    I find my MH71 tighter fitting in the toe box than other English makes of the same size in standard width

    Same here. But everyone's foot is different. I find the GG06 longer or roomier but don't know if I could size down - so I don't buy it.

    I found TG73/DG70 both to be tighter than MH71 in the same size/width
