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.

    Not really wanting to do that unless I'd already tried it on a pair I didn't care about much to see how the results turn out

    I tried some brown meltonian the other night and that seemed to help darken it toward the other shoe's color. Now, as others have suggested, I'll probably purchase a chestnut polish from AE and work both shoes w/ that one jar of polish to try and even out the best I can.

    Similar thing happened to me (last pair - the one in widow got sun bleached) only solution is to try to make one darker , repeatedly using darker cremes & polishes makes them wearable after several goes & indistinguishable after maybe a year althjough gives them a premature aged look.

    this is good advice. or take them to your local shoe repair and they will strip and dye both pairs for not a lot of moola.

    Yeah but even still I'd only trust a guy to do that if I'd taken a lesser-liked pair in for a trial
