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 wonder how much it costs for a repair job like that. Not cheap, I'm sure.

    they didn't change the sole, just nailed on another of those thin strips of leather.

    Looks like they changed the heel.

    I think B nelson would do as good or probably better job for $115

    Even a $100+ repair job would've made those boots easily worthwhile. Damn.

    A local cobbler charges $20 for a heel and $20 for the sole. Makes it like brand new .....

    It would be fixed by any decent cobbler easily. Can't make out what kind of leather it is?
