G, are you sure you have the right guy? You may have a legitimate criticism of his other posts, but I thought his post in this thread was right on. definitely. actually there is a very offensive mood through the shoe topics atm. don't ask me why??? i cannot care less if cameroon is a troll or not, though i struggle with the imagination that in a brand related topic criticism of any kind is strictly forbidden. the thread itself proves on so many levels that AS is doing their homework and they have delivered satisfying results to their customers on sf and elswhere in the world. sf(david) made an fantastic report on their operations. fwiw, it shows the most implementation of handwork throught the northampton factories. there is more than way to skin a rabbit. AS walks on a good path.
