    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.

    You think so? I was looking at the ripples in the first pic and for sure I thought shell... did I pay a ripoff price if it was calf?

    It's really hard to tell from the pictures but I certainly think so. I'll just say $129 is a decent price for that model in shell so let's hope they are.

    Tons of blue Duckie Brown for Florsheim PTB's available on ebay from GVH.

    There are also red and silver suede loafers as well.

    All garish to me, but somebody might like. Myself, I think I am going to spring for Navy MacNeils later this summer.

    edit: some direct links.

    Blue PTB's - size 9.5

    Oxblood (Red) Suede Loafers - size 9.5

    [​IMG] what you think H man? Shell or no?
    i actually think they could be. the color and the patina-ing (sorry if i get the terminology wrong) are reminiscent of shell to my eye. but i would be more inclined to trust distinctive's opinion - he has far more experience with shell than i do.

    Nice JM Weston black Chelsea boots in a size 9.

    Weston Chelseas

    I just rolled the dice with these Westons, not great pictures, but she sent me sole picks by email and I'm hopeful they are in acceptable shape. Otherwise, she will take returns. I'm happy to try out my first pair from this brand.

    Westons

    Yeah, that was me.[​IMG] OK, I have a serious question for you. Why bid with 15 minutes left in the auction? If you had not bid, I would have likely bid lower than the final cost in the last few seconds, and you would have gotten them for $150 (actually like $127, because with only that 0 feedback guy showing interest, I was going to bid $125). Once I saw a serious bidder I reassessed how much I wanted to spend, and came back with a snipe (by hand, I don't trust sniping software). Why show your cards like that? Anyway, sorry, I'll PM you if they don't fit. [​IMG]

    I usually do manual snipes also, with 7 seconds left, but it was late friday afternoon and I had to run out, so I figured the 0 feedbacker had a low bid and because of the wonderful pics, no "serious" bidder would try, so I took a shot on them...I'm my own worst enemy [​IMG]
    Please let me know if they don't work for you!!
    Thanks,

    Just curious, why manual snipes? Not reliable or do not trust them (auction sniper, eSnipe, gixen, etc)? I've used successfully various services (e.g free trials or time limited), now I'm using a free one, usualy with 7 seconds before the end.

    I usually use auctionsniper.com - I had forgotten to do it earlier, and just ran out of time...[​IMG]

    I saw that there were two pairs up at once in a 12.5 which seemed unlikely and I was worried that one was a scam using pictures from the other. But from the sole shots it's pretty certain that they are different shoes. The lining seems pretty worn on that second pair, and there is that split along the welt, though anywhere near that price I suppose you could send them back for reconstruction and get out ahead.
