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.

    I don't think I could ever see myself wearing the Walton, Ashton, ORD, or Voyager.

    By far, the ORD is my least favorite shoe made by AE.

    I am going with the Rogue. The Rush Street is just ok. Now if I could find it in blue that is another story. :)

    I agree that Voyager is very odd looking.

    And just so we aren't negative, What us your favorite Allen Edmonds shoe?

    They made a blue Rush Street. I went with the olive green, which I like a lot.

    Odd-looking sure. But super comfortable and more than up to heavy playground and neighborhood duty with the kids.

    They actually don't look anywhere near to as bad as I had imagined!

    I use the AE bourbon cream polish and it seems to work well for me. There is a small amour of abrasion on the heel counter, but I'll attack it with leather lotion and polish tomorrow and see what happens.

    Deal alert! Not sure if this has been posted already, but 6pm.com has the rarely discounted Dark Chili Rogue in limited sizes for $157.99. This site has been known to change prices very frequently, so don't hesitate if you've been looking at grabbing a chili Rogue.

    Ouch.

    I guess you really don't like the big split toe. But you don't mind the Clark Street?

    ORD is one of those shoes I don't know how they continue to make as I don't know anyone who buys them (except for smfdoc).

    Perhaps my most filthy barn weasel move to date:
    Was not prepared for the potential after work rain storm and did not want to get my chili mcgregors wet especially on only my 4th wear:

    [​IMG]

    Go to the State Street Nordstrom rack around the corner from my office to buy casual shoes for the storm. Buy acorn hill fire neumoks for $97 after tax. Rain only happens in the suburbs make it home with the mcgregors unrained on and the new acorn hill fires not devirginized in a maelstrom.

    New neumoks at home:

    Sigh, I guess I needed my 5th pair of Allen Edmonds in 5 weeks. An unlined casual wingtip that I could wear without socks and out to bars seems like a good shoe to own.

    I shot an email to the guy I normally deal with. Hopefully he'll be able to do something for me. I was very honest with him and wasn't looking for a handout. I'll certainly apply whatever deal he can make me towards another pair of shoes. If I can get them reduced to even $75, i'd keep them for foul weather. Maybe they'll age well. If he can't do anything, i'll just exchange them for another pair anyway. I was in the outlet store near me trying on some Maritimes (man - i just couldn't find a pair that fit me!) and showed the guy there the pictures. He was even shocked at the one shoe.

    On another note - were any of you guys the seller of the shell Leeds I bought on ebay today? Got a really decent deal as the one shoe has some more severe than usual ripple in the creasing. I think they'll be really nice.

    I've given in to tongue pads. My 10.5 B shoes feet great length-wise, but the instep on the 511 and 97 feels slightly loose. (The 65 with its low instep is perfect the way it is.) The 97 and 511 are good with tongue pads. The newer lasts with the higher insteps are hopeless for my skinny feet.

    I've wondered why you were so natty. Now I know.
