When you want a short boot with zero pretention but lots of subtle style, throw down with the Nockdown from Steve Madden. Clean lines of leather mold the upper, with just a bit of contrast topstitching and two antiqued studs on the side for embellishment. A hidden side zip gets you in easy, and a lightly padded footbed and shock-absorbing outsole keep you there.
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.
