You can see the premium, full-grained leather Ariat used in the making of their Hermosa boot. What you can't see are the features that make it extra-functional: A use-extending Goodyear welt construction, a Cobalt XR Technology sole for comfort and support, X-static linings, and a Roper toe.
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.
