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

    Brand of the heel maker - it is written Gaucho Superior.
    Thought it might be a bit more comfortable and durable.

    why not? i mix them in sometimes for beaters or foul weather shoes. nothing wrong, imo. this is a pretty hard rubber mix. very durable.

    apropos, when ed mentioned something red, i was afraid of this.

    Depending on how one walks, the beautiful brass nail pattern plus leather in the heel can be very slippery. Rubber heel is a good solution here. IIRC, some Lobbs use full rubber heels also.

    Sorry, just have to share AGAIN. I love these, and one day will wear them to a special place. Or, loan to a special art gallery. Sigh, just admire.....
