1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    In what way does Vass sole looks odd? Can you elaborate??


    Personal question: do you have small feet?

    I am under the impression that the K last is narrower than the U last.

    Anyone with K and U in the same size? Care to comment if the K last is narrower at the ball of the foot, or is just that the angle from the ball to the toe is even more severe?

    If it is the former, then perhaps a K last with a single point increase in width may fit better than a standard U last for me.

    If higher heel stack is used with HAF sole it won't impact the balance.

    Shoes with no toe spring are not properly made as it will change how they wear by a good margin.

    Thanks a lot - though the biggest challenge at the moment is to find a matching belt

    Check out the Equus Baker's leather ones.
    Or you could just have Vass make you one from the same leather

    Thanks a lot! That is one fantastic website. I had just ordered the leather samples from them - so that I can do the matching first!

    I can't remember the exact number but it was in the €85 range, certainly below €100.
