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.

    They do offer last adjustments in their semi bespoke option. They meassure your feet and adapt the last of your choice to fit your meassurements. Price is €620, including making of the last and three piece lasted trees, VAT included. A steal!

    Edit. This is the risk of answering a post before reading the thread to the end...answering what has already been answered.

    The 3636 has a relatively large instep

    Just tried them on again, and they fit perfectly right now, with a little tightness in the forefoot.

    I just think the lasted instep is slightly higher than mine, but they closed laces aren't overlapping or anything crazy, so I'm going to keep them.

    Many thanks to all the enablers on this thread! I've just placed an order with Notch for a pair of Norwegers: F-last, whiskey shell, double sole with metal taps. 7 weeks until Christmas for me.:D

    Maybe because credit cards charge extra for cross currency/international transfers?

    I think not charging to a credit card makes it difficult for people to make purchases due to a complicated system. I mean not gonna lie because its not very streamlined I dont think i would buy from them. There has been a shell split toe boot that I have been oogling but payment/ordering seems way too complicated.

    Wire transferring is really easy. Took about 5 minutes, just fill out a form online with my bank and send it.
