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 a pair of brown shoes similar to that with non-brogued wingtip at Barneys (i think) on sat. Forgot the make but it was a higher end shoe.

    If those are Marteganis (or if not, whatever) talk to Ron Rider and see if they have a similar last without the toe thing. I have a feeling they would be more comfortable with the toe room, though. Their custom program is very reasonable. riders5r @ cs.com

    thanks. i really can't spend more than $400 max, and of course i'd rather spend much less, but maybe i'll hit barneys tonight just to see what they have.

    I think the lighting, plus a small crease after the stitching is giving it that look. But to echo J, check with Ron. I've heard great things about his custom program, and would probably go with him if my budget stretched to his (good) prices.

    here's the same last from another angle: [​IMG] see how it goes slightly up, then down, at the tip?

    bulbous toe? My monitor settings must be off. That looks similar to the C&J 337 last.

    The 337s also have a bump on the toe that one could reasonably call bulbous.

    They are martegani's on the 3B last am icorrect? If so have you seen the shoe in person? I own a pair on the same last and they do not have a bump on them at all. There is a crease that is from wear but i don't see a bump at all. Contact Ron he'll be able to tell you the most about the shoes plus hes great to deal with.

    I think it is just a reflection and the way the shoes are angled. I would say talk to Ron. He will help you get the pefect shoe and worked with me since i have a hard foot to fit and got me into the shoe i wanted with a great fit. In Fact i'm wearing them to an interview tommarow.
