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.

    Are the laces on your site 2.5 or 3 mm flat waxed?

    Nice sale BTW, wish I had extra $ right now. Would like a couple.

    Justin,

    I wear a UK 8.5 in Meermin lasts (Olfe, Hiro), 42.5 in Vass U last, UK 8.5 in Septieme Largeur 199 last, and UK 8.5 in Carmina Rain last.

    What size would you recommend for your Medina oxfords? The same UK 8.5?


    Thanks.

    Based on that, I would say yes, stick with the uk8.5

    @CanadaCal think the ones you can buy are 4mm...but the ones that come in the shoes are 3mm.

    Well, might be a good time to just get into one to try them out....just saying... next sale will be in Jan if not

    Sadly, but maybe not so sadly, no boots in my size. Justin, when will those boots be released? Please use that color combination as it's absolutely fantastic! Only slight modification I would suggest is perhaps to have the pull tab start from upper part of shaft so that it doesn't protrude so far outward, such that only the finger loop is above the shaft. Other than that...take my money already!

    most of the actual sale shoes had a uk9.5 in stock. The samples and seconds were all odds and ends and don't think that there were in fact any uk9.5....sorry

    those boots in the picture above with Museum calf won't be released until a/w2016 I am afraid. That was just a sample that I got recently. I have already put my order in for this a/w collection so have to wait now until next year to make those....the pull tab is not usually that long, don't know why it came out like that

    Was just ribbing. Was hoping for the Rainier or Medina but there is a good selection of 9.5 available otherwise :)

    I know you weren't being serious (in a harsh way)....think that both of those were out of 9.5 before the sale even started unfortunately.

    Some solid options in the seconds for anyone fortunate enough to be an 8.5UK...

    Yea, don't know why that size was so prevalent, but out of the 41 samples/seconds, 11 of them were uk8.5

    Justin, i think it may looks nicer when the sppedhooks and blind eyelets are rebalanced.

    Otherwise gorgeous pair

    Sorry for being unclear, i meant increasing the number of speedhooks and reduce the number of the metal eyelets
