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.

    How much customization do they allow you to do in terms of boot design?

    From my experience customizing lasts and design details, StC is incredibly flexible. What did you have in mind?

    My StC do not crease more than other shoes. The fit is unsurpassed, it is, after all, customized. What I notice is that my StC are shorter in length than my previous Lobbs. I also noticed that the toe spring is more pronounced on Lobbs, meaning that creases will be stretched out when shoe trees are inserted.
