    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.

    that's why you brush the soles after wearing or before storing...

    i am lazy...never done this straight after wearing. It's not a big deal, just if i were to do it for myself i'd have it like that.

    well, i get your logic, although i don't get it. you don't want the best treatment for your shoes?

    do you think it makes that much of a difference?

    I've only been wearing leather-soled shoes for a couple of years, i wouldn't know if brushing the soles down after every wearing enhances their wear and life span.

    regarding the closet, i meant air circulation.

    i wouldn't know either. i just do it and i feel, it's good for them. also clap them after wearing and see how much dust is coming out of them. amazing, just amazing.

    Thank you very much guys.


    It is an idea but I wanted to have a very light structure inside with this bars you just see the shoes "floating" in the cabinet. Wood slats would make it much heavier but it is just a question of taste. :)

    I love this. Been thinking about trying to make myself a shoe rack. This is beyond what I even imagined. Thanks
