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.

    I'm a 43.5 in the Vass F last. What would be the size in the Buday Franko last?

    Speaking of small tweaks, would love to see either this or the Kent Wang in all milkshake suede on either a white or gum sole. Not enough white suede sneakers out there

    How does the width run on the Budays? I wear a wide, but can get by with aD if it's a generous cut.

    Depends on the last - Buday varies width by last, so each last is only offered in one width. As far as I can tell, the Frakno is pretty normal width (if anything it's on the wide side but pretty standard). We're answering a lot of sizing questions in the Massdrop thread if you want to jump in there!

    Just received my Superga sneakers today. The communication and shipping have been excellent. I followed sizing suggestions that they fit similar to Nikes, Addidas, etc., but find them a generous half size+ too large. I wouldn't wear them because they would be loose.

    How does Massdrop account for a need for a different size? Mine are marked Euro 45, USA 11.5, UK 10.5. I probably need a USA 11, UK 10.

    I'm pretty sure they will tell you to send them to me. Thanks in advance.

    Generally speaking, we don't do exchanges - since we order exactly what we need for each group buy and no more to keep costs low, there's generally no more stock to exchange with. That said, if you have any issues with your order don't hesitate to reach out to customer support. PM if you have any other questions!

    Another drop of interest for Styleforumites -

    We recently started working with the US distributor of Loake 1880, and are running the Loake Kempton suede chukka at over 30% off right now. Those that are familiar with Loake are familiar with the high value the brand offers, as well as the recent "Loake embargo" that went into effect this year - UK-based retailers like Pediwear and Herring no longer ship Loake to the US, so this price is pretty dang good given the new MSRP structure.

    If this drop goes well, hopefully we can offer many more styles of Loake in the future!

    Any chance of these key cases coming back anytime soon? I'd be interested as the color I want is sold out everywhere. Double interested if you could work a special run with brass hardware.

    Also wouldn't mind seeing the Keng Wang folding umbrellas return.

    No plans for the key cases in the immediate future, but I'd like to think we could bring those back at some point. I'll look into it. They're great - I use my natural shell one every day.

    I think we'll have both the KW folding and solid stick umbrellas up in the coming month or two.

    Here's something else I'd love to get some opinions on -

    As some of you know, we've worked with Justin of J. Fitzpatrick a couple of times, and have had some great runs of his classic Magnolia oxford. We're putting together another MTO run of his shoes soon, this time in his popular single monk style, the Fauntleroy. My question for you folks is this - we're going to do black calf and brown suede for sure, but we can potentially offer one more. Would you rather see dark brown museum calf or gold museum calf?

    A flashy shoe needs a flashy color! Go for gold.

    Not that I'm holding out hope, but any chance of width options?

    I'm not 100% sure, but we were able to offer a wide fitting with our last JF drop and I'm hopeful that we can do the same here. We just need to make sure that everything went as expected during the last run.
