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.

    Cheers,

    You can at least try on some AEs at Nordstrom to get a feel for your size. Another option is getting factory seconds from AE during a sale time (like now). I'm a college student, too, so I will often go via this route to save some money. Flaws are usually negligible and you can return them if it is too noticeable.

    So what is the total price that you have paid (including the new 20% discount)? Is that worth the shoes?

    About 170 after the discount so it's a pretty good deal. The shoes look great otherwise. Is this kind of thing even fixable?

    I'm not at expert on that. It looks covered up, though.

    Any tips on lacing the Strands? A link to the technique would be helpful as well.

    Thanks for the reply. I've actually seen and really love KW'a black wholecuts. I've been searching for something that might be a bit more affordable for me.

    Being covered up means good or bad? :)

    It looks like the flaw is on the tongue and is covered by the upper. I think that's good!

    Wearing my new daltons around the house tonight. I can't believe how light these are compared to my north plattes. Great looking shoe.

    Anyone else notice that the Buck and Ball Mora re-release ($448) and the AE Sleepy Hollow "McAllister" ($295) look conspicuously similar in that they both have that orange welt stitching and orange leather lining?
    Any idea what the premium is for... other than it is a currently unavailable Mora?

    No, but he has an excellent rating and you are covered by eBays buyer protection. It is very highly likely you will be safe.
