    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 already have the Spiaggia in blue. One blue shoe is enough to last me a lifetime. However, these brown leather Neumoks [​IMG]

    Mine did the same thing and they ended up replacing them. Not sure that's an option since they are out of walnut shell. Hopefully it can be repaired.

    My chocolate brown Daltons have arrived. I really like them. Being on the 1 last they aren't "sleek" but I knew that going in. I also wear an 8E so a bit wide and not that long which I'm sure contributes to the "fatter" look. It'll be interesting to see how they look with dress pants or a suit. I really love the color.

    We got some strong wind and rain here the other day so you'll notice the (dead) potted, toppled shrub in the background.

    I assume this is the stuff: http://www.amazon.com/Obenaufs-Heav...8&qid=1383588615&sr=8-1&keywords=Obenauf's+LP

    I have a pair of Bayfield on the way. Did you find that it changed the color of the brown CXL at all?

    I seriously doubt they are 100% out of walnut shell.

    Now you guys are scaring me. Mine are about a year and a half old. How old were your guys?

    My sympathy is with you, bkotsko. Let us know how you fare.

    Beth in AE recrafting told me it is no problem (sight unseen).
    I sent them in already this morning, and hopefully should have something back within a week or so.
    Ill post the after pics.
    This problem got me a little worried about the MTO unlined black shell Daltons I ordered during the sale.
    I almost called Allison about it today to make sure it wasnt an issue with them being unlined.
    Fingers crossed.

    One pair of shoes with an issue is not a trend...

    And to the person that asked about the obenauf's HDLP, I find that it did darken two pairs of boots I used it on (neither were AE) quite a bit. They went from a reddish brown to a few shades darker. I might do it to another pair of boots I own as well, but I probably won't do it to my walnut daltons since it'll probably darken them quite a bit.

    I think Cold Iron's absence can be explained by one of his last posts regarding finding a new woman who loved the smell of shell cordovan.

    PSA for those like me who tried to get in on last week's Jos A Bank shoe tree sale. Size small was out-of-stock until forever but I just went to my local store and they had a few in stock at 50% off so picked them up for $12.50/ea. Probably not as good as the sale but close enough and better than waiting until forever.
