    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 lace many of my oxfords in this interesting way because they tend to slip in the heel just a little bit...where a size down is too small....so lacing this way prevents the heel slip.

    I will post more pics of this later as I'm busy now....the way i've done it i've found to be a very good solution to dealing with a minor heel slip and easier than adding a pad.

    I like it very much. I think it is perfect for that type of shoe, where you want to make it less...'formal' (for lack of finding a better word)

    Also, time for a resole?

    ian that is excellent. and you just made spoo a very happy man lol.

    sole looks worn but i would not necessarily say they need a resole. they dont look overly thinned out or have any holes i see.

    I agree with stitchy...I'm sure you can still get a few miles off those. I could barely see the "circle" that tends to show when it's close though. I typically go by feel and try not to get to the point when there is an actual hole though. Once the leather breaks I send mine in for resole. Congratulations on the excellent wear!

    Thanks fellas!

    Not bad for 3yrs of ownership. I imagine with the new rotation, I can stretch it to another year before I have to send it back.

    And Spoo made ME one happy dude! :slayer:
