    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.

    Looks good, how much did the resoling set you back? And why did you choose to have it done by a third party?

    Tom, please tell me you don't use Bexley's blob-like shoe trees on Gaziano&Girling shoes.

    Kokos Shoes London. I live in Wales, all arranged by phone and then sent over to do the job.
    Full long sole and toe taps set me back less than a third of what the refurbishment at the mothership would have cost.
    See above ... couldn't justify spending half the price of a new pair of G&G's.

    Liquor? I hope you used something good. :D

    I've never seen such a thing on shoes before.

    Does your air conditioning not work well? It seems that it would keep the air so dry that mold wouldn't grow.

    luk-cha meant alcohol for desinfection and getting rid of spots. as we already mentioned. the situation looks worse than it really is.
