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,

    That's basically the reason I mentioned the sole in addition to the leather. If he's looking at finished shoes, it may foot him into seeing it as wider.

    Yes emailing the shoebank is probably the best and easiest way to get on the list. Buying something from them won't necessarily get you on the list.


    I think there is a rule against posting those types on things in threads like this and is an offense that can get you banned and fined. The best way to plug your items without breaking any rules, I think, is to link to it in your signature.

    That's what I thought. But, do you think it was polished to give it that darker look?

    Those look like Bourbon and that they are to dark to be Walnut. But when you look at the AE site, the Bourbons have a darker/blk welt. The walnuts have a natural welt. So I am guessing they are the Walnuts, unless you can get a different welt on the Bourbons...

    This was published in 2010. No way it's bourbon, as bourbon shoes were not in production then. Definitely walnut. And FWIW, my walnut Player's are about 1.5 years old at this point and are very similar in color.

    That is correct. These are Walnut Strands.

    I should probably buy 2nd hand walnut Strands and have it recrafted to make it look like that. [​IMG]

    I think you would be dissapointed. The pair in the article is likely brand new. AE will refinish them to their original color, so if you don't prefer the Walnut color when they are new, then you will not prefer it when they are recrafted. There are subtle differences between pairs, some are darker than others, and I still think that the color in those photos has some enhancements. Buy 2nd hand shoes if that is what you can afford, but don't expect color to be better. Buy new or factory seconds if you can afford them and let them age and gain a character of their own.
