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.

    Going to NYC tomorrow for some festivities and I want to pick up a pair of double monks. Looking to spend less than $500.

    Any suggestions for shoe shops to hit up?

    C&J Lowndes but you would be better off buying from the UK.

    E Neumora on the "lower" end
    CJ Lowdnes on the higher end
    Leffot and Barneys might have some options too

    Did not like the Neumora last or color selection at all, so pass on those.

    Just checked out Leffot and this is just what I was looking for! Seems like they only stock high-end brands though...

    Sadly, at $740, these are a bit steep... ugh. :(

    Thanks for the link.

    I'm a bit confused, though, as Leffot labels them as the Oak Antique color, which is how your link labels them as well. Yet, the colors are vastly different?

    A lot of British websites are showing these at 350 GBP and I even found one site at 297 GBP excl. VAT and with free shipping!

    I'm going to Leffot to get my size and then will order online :D

    Thank you jrd I think I'm in love with these shoes and I've been looking FOREVER for a pair of double monks I like.

    :inlove:

    Anyone have any experience with pediwear.co.uk?

    I will pay them a visit. Do you know which models they're discontinuing by chance?

    Also, just found out Leffot will be closed during the entirety of my stay... now I'm fucked.

    At least he didn't get screwed, you weren't going to buy anything from them. You wanted to get sized and buy elsewhere.

    You say that as if I'm making an irrational decision.

    ^ Thanks for the suggestion. Not a fan of that last at all, unfortunately.

    In store. They are discontinued models that got shipped over from England. The sale started December 26.
