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!
    I try only to 'glaze' the first inch or so of the toe decreasing the shine gradually to create a natural transition to the rest of the shoe's normal shine.

    Glad I read this before commenting on your previous post. Excellent to keep the spit shine to the toes only. The flexible parts of the leather need different (less drying) treatment. In short, you've got Great Toes... Patrick Booth can learn something here (nasty toes).
