1. 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.

    Thank you sir, yes they are split toe. A very handsome profile if I may say about my own listing.

    Damn homie.

    1) What do these shoes work with? Jeans? Trousers and a button down shirt?

    2) Soles look like they were worn more than once?

    Damn homie indeed!

    I picture them with midweight flannels, cuffs no break. And a multi windowpane sportcoat. Blues and browns, not worsted but maybe also flannel. Fabric heavy enough to compliment the brawny alligator hide and chukka style.

    Just once, and then I realized they were too large. I wear a 10D and have a bad habit of trying to make things work. Also it's worth noting that Uncle Ralph put the typical Italian style sole on the boots, which I assume was an attempt to keep them refined looking. They're about as thick as Gucci soles. If I were going to keep these I'd go straight for a topy; commando or ridgeway so they gain some heft without losing their dressy look. Definitely not lugs.

    Thanks for checking out my listing!
