    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    No idea yet. I got to snap these in the 20 minutes between getting the kid a snack upon arriving home and then having to go play. Going to check the feel here in an hour or so once he's asleep.

    I am no expert but most bespoke shoes uses lasted/hinged trees for some reason.

    great, i mean super sexy, looking shoes mang! somehow i missed your post last night. enjoy em broham.


    i have only had spring loaded, but i would imagine the potential for a spring to go bad is greater than the chance of the hinge going bad. as well once a spring pops you are pretty much SOL, where as when a hinge come loose you can tighten it. small differences, but i could see the reason why at such a price point one would want the best possible options.

    hinged is purtier n more old school as Gerd says but sprung is better 1. applies more stretching force = good esp for cordo 2. easier to insert n less likely to damage top of counter
