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,

    The Socialists only seem to be available on the Medium site, as far as I can tell. They only come in the original, non-distressed leathers.

    I generally hate when people do this, but what the hell. If you happen to be a size 9 (or maybe a narrow width 9.5) and want the black Socialists, I have a pair that I need to post to sell (along with a bunch of other stuff). If you're interested, send me a pm. If not, that's fine too.

    Thanks but that would be too large for me - I actually need a 7/7.5 but looks like the smallest they (Medium) come is 8 anyway [​IMG]

    Hey, no problem. If they wouldn't fit, they wouldn't fit. You can at least probably manage an 8 with insoles. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like you're likely to find a pair of the Anarchists or Socialists in an 8. They're all sold out in the size on the Medium site, and I don't know of any online retailers that carry them. You can try watching eBay, but that's not reliable, obviously. Zappos and the Medium site do have them in 8 in the distressed leathers, though I can definitely understand if you have no interest in those. I don't think I would.

    Hey, those aren't bad. I've heard of Marsèll but can't say I know anything about their quality etc.

    Personally, I think they look pretty silly, but I'll openly admit a preference for functional combat boots. Don't know anything about the brand, though.

    These are the kind of footwear I like to look at and see worn by others, but I wouldn't wear myself :]

    thanks for that info, Tokyo Slim, its greatly appreciated. could you tell me if these are the type of boots your talking about getting 4-5 years comfortable use from? they look a good deal better than the jungle model, similar to some doc martens i had as a kid.
    then i also foundthese at the site you posted, looks like its a newer version with enhanced specs? big price increase though, and i doubt the quality justifies it? should i stick with the ebay knock offs?

    What do you think of these?

    I rather like them. Anyone heard of this brand before?


    I'm a fan myself. I wouldn't pay that price, maybe $100 or so. The toe is a bit rounded and points up... not always a fan of that.
