1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    Occasionally I see shoes that have a steel tap 'in' the toe of the soul. This does not appear to be a tap that has been place or nailed on after the shoe was made. Instead, the tap is flush with the soul of the shoe. Question: Is this specific to a certain shoe maker(s) or is it something a good cobbler can do?
    Thank you,
    John

    both. some good makers (Edward Green and Vass come to mind) do it as part of some of their orders, and a good cobbler should also be able to do it.
