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.

    Please excuse my ignorance when it comes to shoes, but, why are all the pictures on this site creasesless? I thought the first time you wear leather shoes to creases them permanently.

    I cannot speak for all here but I presume proper shoe care with cream and polishing will irridicate many creases to the naked eye. Good quality leather also shows less signs of wear and is easier to keep in good shape.

    You are right in your observation. People here buy shoes so they can photograph them, post on the shoe porn and brag about them. Nobody really wears them, a majority of us go about barefoot all the time. [​IMG]

    The secret is to not bend your feet when you walk.

    I've installed rope handrails on a large amount of my most used routes and just pull myself along.

    A lot of people take photos before they have worn them for the first time. This isn't true for all people's shoes on here. I know for me a lot of my shoes were bought at Leffot and Steven takes beautiful photos when they arrive.

    [​IMG] hilarious.
    This ranks up there with another SF member who drops by his cobbler to have fresh Topy's put on his soles every day at lunchtime.

    Many SF types take great pride in their closet queen shoes which they apparently only remove from their closets for photo sessions.

    I'm serious. And I don't get it either.
