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.

    For your consideration a lightly used pair of Edward Green for Holland & Holland Veldtschoen country field shoes, size UK9.5, F width. Worn a handful of times, only a couple superficial scratches, the outsoles in exceptional condition. Built on the 58 last, similar to the EG 64 last used for boots. Made from burnished almond country calf, built on thick, heavy duty rubber Medway Ridgeway soles and matching flat welt. Also features, metal eyelets and a bellows tongue allowing the shoes to be submerged in up to 3 inches of water without penetrating the inside.

    Great quality field shoes made using the famous, now rarely-found 'veldtschoen construction', making them as water-resistant as a leather boot can be. The style of construction involves having two leather uppers; the inner upper is welted so that the shoe can be resoled as normal and the outer upper is stitched directly to the midsole so that water is directed away from the seam. Thanks to @CTBrummie for veldt description

    Will fit a wide US10, a US10 with thicker socks, or a normal(d-width)/narrow US10.5 with thin socks

    Feel free to contact me with any questions or offers! Price includes insured priority shipping and tracking
