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.

    Arrived this morning, just in time for the big blizzard. Can't believe I got firsts for $215 (thanks again to bbob2013 for the $35 off coupon):

    Only problem is my HDLP doesn't arrive til Saturday, so I guess I'll be sporting my leaky, crappy rock port Indy boots until then...

    You're welcome!

    They look really, really great. I asked Allison about a MTO pair and she said they were last made in the early 2000s and all the lasts were destroyed.

    Sometimes I wonder how they would properly recraft without the proper lasts.
    When I asked about a different shoe, she told me that they were retired.

    No need to apologize, I'm just glad these were able to go to another SF member...and a fellow Louisiana AE fan to boot.

    I may have confused what she said. It is possible that they still have the lasts but not the patterns to cut the leather.

    Strand: merlot, or chili? I love merlot but I have a ton of shoes in that color whereas I have only one in chili (Shaker Heights boot). Anyone have the chili and, if so, how are they working out for you?

    There was a big fire at the AE facility a few years ago. They said they lost a lot of lasts in that fire. That may be what happened to the lasts for those boots.

    I would like to know this information too. I have a pipe dream of getting two pairs of shell for $250.

    Thanks

    Personally I love my Chili McAllisters, they are a great color and definitely a nice option when compared to Merlot. I have both Merlot and Chili McAllisters and love both the same, they are no way similar in color.

    I am thinking about making some chili Strands, Fifth Streets, or something else... not too sure what I will do.

    Go for chili since you have plenty of Merlot.

    (time for some lunch and a glass of wine!)

    I recall someone posting two pairs of shell for this price but maybe it was calfskin. After reading half this thread I can't keep things straight.

    Yea, I believe the 2 for $250 sale is calf seconds. I don't believe anyone has reported 2 shell for $299.
