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.

    My right shoe Mora 2.0 has the dreaded heal fart noise. Is your shoe new? If so and you have access to a treadmill do a good 40 minute walk in them a few nights in a row and see if that helps. My foot fart has gotten less and less the more I wear mine. As I do not walk much at all during the day my shoes do not break in quick.

    Indeed! Unfortunately they need a resole, but fortunately I have a few free resoles left over from when they used to do the cobblers club!

    That seems a tad bit excessive.

    Some of you might cringe at the thought of me wearing bals with jeans haha, but I really couldn't resist not cleaning the up last night and wearing them today. I was too excited to give them a go around the office.


    The Strands I picked up are an 8D and fit like a glove, I bought these in an 8.5D and still fit extremely well. My first pair of AE a year ago was a walnut calf McAllister and they work so I knew the risk was minimal in sizing up. The 5 last fits me very well with my low vamp and narrow heel, it also fits me wider across the toes compared to the 1 last size for size. I think I will be buying more 5 last shoes in the future. Phenomenal shoe all around, loving the wheeled welt.

    Let me know if you want to take a pair of gently used burgundy shell PAs in 8D off my hands...

    They are amazing. They look strikingly similar to what Alden's Ravello Shell Cordovan has become.

    I agree, Mike. Ravello is still a bit redder, though.

    Close enough to satisfy my rare shell hunger and hold me back from jumping on a used pair of something in Ravello.




    Oh and these McAllisters have barely creased today, has me feeling like Mike. The strands creased on the first step trying them on yesterday haha
