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.

    Is that made with the ridiculous Russian calf found from that sunken ship? Crazy story behind that.

    I'm not advocating for or against it; rather, I am listing the price as a point of fact. There was previous discussion of EG and SC prices, so I thought a very recent LS-SC offering, and its listed price, was relevant to the issues at hand. Personally the boot does nothing for me, but that's beside the point.

    He left to start Zonkey. Their stuff might not be to people's taste on this forum, but they're really nice (some even quite conservative) when you see them in person.

    I've never handled Riders in person, so I can't say. Online, I can see the similarities, but there was an appreciable lightness to the Zonkeys, which I thought was similar to my SCs.

    More SC than Rider. In both last and construction. Pretty much a mass market value SC. Just another part of the family business (Rollig still has shares in SC and Car is his cousin AFAIK).

    Why on earth would you go out and name a high end shoe company "zonkey"? I googled it and was informed that there exists an animal that is a cross between a zebra and a donkey

    Can someone tell me what size these EG's on eBay would fit as. . . (US size, true to size, wide, etc.)?

    My best cordovan shoes are from EG- much nicer than any Aldens I've owned.

    They're meant to be my snow boots and will look better and better when broken in. I originally ordered a rubber, knobbed outsole, but they got lost in the process.

    True. Don't get me wrong, I like Aldens, but they have REAL quality control problems. To me, the Sandringhams above are an anomaly.
