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.

    Same with CP Achilles. They were way too "bright" when they were new, they're a nice slightly scuffed off white now.

    Does anyone have a suggested insert for CP's that are too big? I'm always getting heel slip when I walk :(

    any other small footers get self-conscious over how small their shoes look on them (especially boots)?

    i'm a tts us 8, but in shoes i'm like 5'10, so i sometimes think about how weird it must look

    I don't think that's so bad.

    I'm 5'8 with US 10 (actually more like 9.5, with EEE feet) so I have to wear size 10 shoes, which are still too narrow but also too long for me. I feel like a clown sometimes, but you have to remember that you will always pay more attention to yourself than others will, so relax, no one even cares.

    Just curious would Bally sneakers be considered "baller" on this site?

    I don't think they stand out that much but there's nothing really wrong with them. Most of their designs kind of reminds me of a stripped down Gucci sneakers with a different color scheme because of the ribbon on the side.

    Guys I am debating between three pairs of black sneakers for my rotation:
    Saint Laurent Black SL/01 Lows
    Maison Margiela Black suede GATS
    or Acne Studios black Triple Lo Velcros.
    Any recommendations? and no i cant buy all three.

    GATs, but maybe the SLPs if you're after something sleeker/less fun

    Bergdorf Goodman has a bunch of Lanvin sneakers in a bunch of sizes for 60% off if anyone wants to stock up.

    Need your helping deciding which sneakers to cop!

    A
    B

    or save my money because both aren't worth it. Looking for a white-ish sneaker that isn't common projects; considering these or a pair of Shoes-Like-Pottery and saving the $100 or so.

    I think A is dope. B is hard to wear cuz they're white yet the soles are darker. Lanvin in darker colors are nicer in general tho, so maybe neither are worth it.

    I couldn't find the baller boot thread, so I'll ask it here: How is sizing for the Buttero "Brunello" boot?
    Iirc people say to size down in Buttero but I'm not sure if that's limited to the sneakers or for boots too.
    I'm a US12 on the brannock so I'd want a size 44, right?

    Don't see why not. My experience with Bally sneakers has been positive. They're extremely well made and they wear well. The only downside is that my model's sole is a bit soft. I am not sure if it is going to last a long time. However, if you're looking for a "baller office sneaker over $300," then Bally fits the bill.

    Related Q for the Hender Scheme owners. Got my first pair. I read somewhere (maybe Reddit?) that one should apply their special lotion/creme/whatever BEFORE you wear them and periodically apply. Did anyone subscribe to this method? Do you use Hender-care products or is there an safe alternative?

    Related to Hender - consensus of the better color? I'm a fan of the black because it's black, but the natural has that aging factor (I ended up with a black pair)

    As far as I can tell the Hender Scheme leather lotion I have is basically Saphir Renovateur if not exactly Saphir. Even Visvim shoe care shit is just rebranded and marked up Saphir
