    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.

    I'm sorry for the noob question, but do you wear these, or just look at them? All the soles look brand new.

    That is brilliant! As stated before love the croc writing pad and the shoe horn.
    After the pics of the shoes, I demand we see your closet/storage of these pieces of art

    Thank you for the accolades. Unfortunately, my wife objects to showing our closet. These shoes have their own closet along others.

    Splender, wrong thread to post but I don't mind. Awesome shoes! Are all this for your own collection or do you sell shoes also?

    Don't worry. You all could have your GG thread back. No panic, there is more space on th internet. It was an experement to compare different makers of shoes, although I love GG and their Deco range.
    I will not post anymore non GG shoes here.
    No I do not sell shoes in general, but occasionally I list some on eBay.
