@lawyerdad obviously the gallery was running the OMG THAT IS SO AWSOME script which slows things down and can often result in the conection timing out and a OMG THATS SO AWESOME error. Even on the new NMWA servers (which are quite peppy BTW).
@redwinglover I don't have any Red Wings, but I've found the Russell to be TTS. It has decent width (compared to Blake boots and handsewns) and runs true for length. So as an 11D Brannock, that's what I wear in Russell. They are nice boots.
I will play in the non-baller category. Funny thing is that I probably should have spent more money on watches and less on shoes. People will actually buy watches from you. Shoes not so much. C'est la vie!
