They were not stored properly but I am sure they will get better with a little wear as the leather softens. The leather soles only have initial wear common to all leather soles. The uppers are a little stiff from being unworn in a while. All the writing on the insoles in still visible. I did however drop a knife in the shoes...

And I didn't mean literally walk out on her, well have dinner, talk, then well go our separate ways. I intend to be curt, not bring up what we had, no I love you'd, no I'll miss yous, just bye. I do not see how this can go wrong. I'm eagerly awaiting the results of this. If you don't mind,...
Quote: Originally Posted by MarkI Pretty much what happened, she calls me last night, I answer like that. I tell her that I would like to see her, sit down, have a neutral conversation, and part ways with no animosity. She agreed, we ended up spending two hours talking on the phone : \\ At the very end I told her I think its best if we dont talk until Wednesday, which is when we are seeing each other, we'll just meet up at the restaurant and go from...

Quote: Originally Posted by scourage is this a real question? in NY? pretty much all the pizza is good. Most of the pizza is shit. The best pizza can be found there though. For Neapolitan: Co and Keste are two newer places with great pies. Grimaldi's and Sally's (the original Harlem one) are two older institutions that still serve decent pizza. I am also partial to Luzzo's truffle-paste margherita. It is a shame the grail pizza...

The springs are nowhere near strong enough to have any effect. I don't store my good shoes in...
