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 saw this pic in the "most beautiful shoe" thread and wanted to compare to my recent purchase from Lance (virtualclotheshorse). Admittedly, a mere imitation for those of us who are "resource challenged," but at least a passing resemblance.

    They look good to me. Importantly, how do they feel / fit / work?

    I'm pretty sure that Lance's Certo shoes are actually made by Borgioli with Blake/Rapid construction. They look to me to be a very good deal, and the shoes that you received are very attractive. I hope that they fit well, too.

    I think John Lobb has been the cause of many a poor man...

    I've seen these Certos in person and they are very, very nice looking. Made me wish I had gotten a pair when he had my size.
