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.

    no no no it was an honest question, i mean we all have odd fetishists, but if yours is to have a seam then how about with/ on heel counters, as some brand do, some dont and other just dart them?

    I prefer when the external heel counter is 1 piece with a small 'dart' of stitching at the bottom. I do have a pair with a heel counter and seam down the middle; I find those look a bit busy, perhaps the opposite of your seamless backs! [​IMG]

    I think that those involved in the operation are alway happy to have a little teaser. After all it is also a form of charity.

    I prefer the former: the curve on the lower quarter gives the shoe a longer, sleeker appearance, while the straight line of the latter interrupts the flow of the shoe's lines.

    De gustibus non est disputandum, of course!
