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.

    Man, if that McAllister was an 11.5D. I'd get it in a heart beat.

    I might be unloading my 8.5D. Worn them only 3x since I got them.

    I do, but typically for foul weather. Granted I had a few less pairs last year. This year I have more to choose from.

    I thought a First Communion and Derby Day would be a good time to debut the Shreveport. If they keep squeaking, they are going back.

    I made one of these disappear from SB. They also had a brown shell Strand. I love these little suprises!

    I also don't necessarily see any reason to stop wearing them , though it will be less frequent.
    Part of the reason is, I don't have any other short wing blucher.....

    Nice. And yes, I wear my boots year round (although I didn't have nearly as many to choose from last summer - damn you, SF!).

    In terms of my more recent purchases, I likely will not wear the tan dublin Long Branches because they've got a chunky mini lug sole and thick red boot laces. The walnut shell Dalton are more appropriate for summer because they're unlined. And I will probably wear my chukkas and the oxblood First Avenues, too.

    I'm surprised it took this long, but I finally caught some flak from the wife for the shoe-photography thing. We were heading out to a friends yesterday and I brought my laptop to show him a few Photoshop tricks to help with a budding photography hobby. I was wearing my Neumoks, grabbed my Neumok messenger bag, and then put everything on hold for 5-10 minutes while I took the shoes off and shot the two together.

    I heard about it all the way to the house, for a while at the house, and the topic resurfaced on the way back from the house. It was super blisscake with rapture sauce, but whateva, whateva - I do what I want!

    Haha, epic.

    Your photography skills inspire me to actually use my real camera and work on my shots! It's much more difficult than I expected to make shoes really "glow" in shots.

    Oddly enough, the unlined shell is so comfortable that I can wear it without socks... but for some reason, boots without socks seems like a huge contradiction.

    Thanks bruh man. The bounce flash really makes all the difference.

    If you have a camera with a hot shoe that can take an external articulating flash, it brings a natural glow to the leather.

    Thanks. I was thinking about the Clifton in walnut and Mora 2 in bourbon.

    Some my shoes squish when I walk. It seems to affect the pairs that fit more snugly. Doesn't bother me though. More of a whoosh than a squeak.
