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.

    What does this mean, exactly? And what misfortunes await those who topy?

    Just checked what I paid for my refurbishment last autumn, at it was 195 pound plus shipping. Indeed, when I first inquired they quoted me a quite outrageous figure which included pick up from my own door step, but to save a bit I chose to ship them myself which worked out perfectly fine. The refurbishment included new soles, new welt and new insocks. All in all I was extremely happy with the result.

    Cheers,
    SKM

    You can't just throw in the towel.



    You can't just up and quit.



    Where's your pride, more importantly where's your wallet man? LOL

    Well, they advise against topying as somehow the glue and rubber from the topy will trap the moisture and thus degrade the soles quickly .. I think it's a two-edged sword regarding this ..

    Also, EG may refuse to refurbish the shoes topyed by a local cobbler.

    At $455, I'd likely just buy a new pair, especially considering the wait and hassle.

    But if the shoes just need a re-sole I don't think I'd just toss them. I think BNelson would be a viable alternative.

    ;)



    I think I'll probably be OK considering I wear them once a week and they only see pavement from the car to the office and back, haha.

    That's more like it.


    If there's one thing I can't stand, it's a quitter. LOL

    Not saying anybody here thought otherwise, but these shoes aren't that much different than any other luxury item. The initial cost of buying them is only one part of the overall cost of ownership. This is also true with maintenance costs for luxury cars, watches, or any other luxury item for that matter.

    One of those perfect combos if you ask me, Zug and Red Sub. Craftsmanship of both of these are beyond compare. Both are built tough, one of which is water proof, and one of which is highly water resistant. But more importantly they both have a bit of red in them.LOL

    I may need to get a different strap but for now this will do.

    Corollary: if you are concerned with how much it costs, you probably shouldn't be buying them anyway. Not to imply that one should disregard or neglect price, but we all know that the EG road is an expensive one to travel.

    True but my concern isn't how much a single EG shoes costs but how many EG shoes I can buy :)
