Consider this a lire-loafer, an American classic reinterpreted by the Italian shoe masters at a.testoni. The profile is stalwart and straightforward, but a closer look rewards you with a display of expert stitching and the finest textured leather. Your first wearing will be even more rewarding. The flexible low-profile sole comforts you with every step, which is a good thing, because the amenable style means you can wear this shoe with practically anything.
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.
