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.

    Delos is charging 400 euros for a bespoke shoe resole. I'm sure he's less than his former patron Lobb Paris. Whoever says fine shoes pay for themselves is wrong from an economic standpoint.
    These shoes are like any other high end item when it comes to maintenance: impossibly expensive and tedious. Magnify the tedium and expense when it's vintage luxury, e.g. cars.

    Might anyone have an estimate of:

    1) Top lift only?

    2) Reheel only?

    I emailed Edward Green but haven't received a reply just yet.

    Allen-Edmonds charges its international customers $170 for a resole/reheel (includes shipping). Compared to that, Green's prices are not completely crazy.

    Btw, how much do new EGs cost again exactly these days? And how much do John Lobb Prestige and C&J Handgrades cost? (Don't know the GBP figures.)

    EG states that they offer full resole and heel replacement only.

    C&J Handgrade: $400-$600, depending on the source
