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.

    Perfect for shell boots (and shoes) in the winter. With the additional 40% off I got these for $53. Well worth it! [​IMG]

    From whence? I'm thinking these are what I need. I've just about beat my Long Branches to Hell over the past two weeks.

    I can't help but be a broken record on this - you should take a look at the Italian collection too. The Firenze, Positano/Brindisi, Verona, they are definitely worth considering. There are much better options than the Cavanaugh....

    BTW - if you wind up getting the Dundee, you should have your SA yell out - I'm not gonna marry Richard. See? Much funnier than that whole clown crap.

    I agree with the Tingley recommendation 100%. I got some for about $20 on Amazon vs. the $95 AE wants for a pair of swims, plus they cover more of your shoe. Have worn them in some nasty stuff and haven't had any problems.

    Thanks for the info. I LOVE my vibrams. They are the most comfy shoes ever. I've got several pairs.


    Absolutely not. I like simple and plain, but I also like two and three tone stuff if it's well done. I'm not dead yet.

    Thanks, I ran by one of the stores today and tried on a pair of shoes made on the 2592 last. They were definitely a bit tight feeling. I'm going to go with an E instead of a D. For me the 65 is ok in a D (but an E might be ok too), but for a 2592, I think I'm going to have to have an E.

    Thanks

    How did you size them? I know they have a chart, but have seen mixed reviews on the sizing. I would certainly be interested in getting some. Thanks for the info.

    Struggling with this right now; I have really developed a liking for the Mora, but can't get it to fit. 11.5 D is too big by far, 11D is good in length and feels ok at first, but after I have them on my feet for a few minutes (test wearing around the house) I can tell they won't be comfortable. My feet aren't compatible with the shape I guess. The toes of the Mora taper in where me feet are broadening out! Don't think 11E would work either, since on the D widths I have to fasten the buckles on the last hole to be snug enough; for reference I have Strands, PA, Universities all in 11.5 D and a Cambridge shell in 11E that all fit well.

    Those McAllisters look like calf to me.

    Very happy calf, at that. Gorgeous!

    Decided to roll the dice and order a pair of shell Leeds from the Shoebank in a 9.5C. I'm a 9.5D in the 5 last, hope they fit (although I'm expecting they will not).

    That's mostly just a defense mechanism so I don't get too excited then disappointed.

    If you are referring to my McAllisters, they are calf and they have been recrafted once - about 3 years ago.

    haha, i saw the picture via a small mobile screen, which showed the shoes with rolls rather than creases. after enlarging the picture up a bit, I can defintely see that the shoes are calf. either way, looks great.
