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.

    ^The side/edge of the sole looks like it's more flush to the upper than usual. Just wondering if you specified that or had it trimmed after you got them. I'm guessing neither. I agree that Tom is a reliable and trustworthy and that 6-8 weeks is normal. I ordered mine at the very start of the frenzy, in late Feb. The problem is that I wanted dainite soles, and Tom only discovered later on that they don't use those. He tried to get them direct from dainite, but they didn't come before he left Hungary. My statement should have made it clear that I wasn't blaming Tom. That said, Vass uses Vibram products. Does anyone know if Vibram makes a sole comparable to the usual Dainite one? Or does anyone have a spare Dainite sole lying around? [​IMG]

    wasn't directing it at you, was not even aware you had an order with Tom. have you thought of send ing the shoes to B. Nelson? he posts here and he is the only person I know that offers Dainite soles.

    Thanks for the idea. I think Tom thought of this, but we didn't know exactly how it would work.

    BTW, there have been some questions in terms of Tom and some outstanding orders, I have no idea where Tom is and hope everything is OK but I can vouch that Tom is a stand up guy and those awaiting shoes will get them.

    +1. I think he posted an update recently on his sales thread but I'm sure Tom will sort everybody out. I had some lingering issues with the courier after my delivery which Tom made sure to address.

    in natural light, yes, you can def see the blue. Indoors, sometimes, but more likely will be taken for black.

    Ed, the shoes are gorgeous. Did you get toe taps? If so, metal or rubber?
