Your foot wasn't made flat, so why is almost all footwear made that way? Sole footbeds and sandals mold to perfectly fit your unique foot. Generic insoles and flat footwear simply cannot offer the same level of arch support, control and comfort of Sole products.
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.
