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 think from what I understand about shining a shell is to use minimal, more if needed, cordovan cream and just vigorously brush them then buff it with a flannel cloth

    Thanks for the response, I appreciate it. Any thought on whether it's better to go with the smaller or larger width when between sizes?

    Thanks much

    It's hard to tell the difference unless you put the shoes side by side. When you do that, especially outside, the #4 shoes its real character: dark like a mohagony, with some red highlights. Have to say, the shoe got 4 compliments on my first wear. I don't remember anyone ever commenting on my Ravello boots.

    Is there anyone outside of shoemart who's currently (or imminently) stocking anything in #4?

    I still don't understand why the shoemart didn't order anything over 11 in their two #4 boots...

    Maybe they did and the website wasn't showing? Did you give them a call?

    Unfortunately, no thats not the case. i spoke with Mark Waters who said they didn't order either the WT or Captoe boot in #4 in anything larger than an 11.

    bigfoot discrimination!

    Both ends of the spectrum. They did not have anything smaller than 8 or something.
