    glad to clear that up!

    i took those at work. i had the office to myself, so i used the cannon dslr and light-box i use for work stuff. most of my pics are done with the camera + app for iphone, and sometimes ill bring the dslr home for SF pics, but i wanted to try it in the light box for fun. i dont think i would actually buy a light-box and make a setup, just for SF pics. but, you never know.

    congrats on the new camera!

    Was definitely a great time as Vegas always is for me. I learned quite a bit from Nick and was awesome to handle some shoes up close that I've always been curious about, especially the Stingrays. I know Nick made a few good contacts already by the time I had stopped by so I hope the trip ends up being lucrative for him.

    The hall for the shoe booths alone was massive, but I can easily say from all the booths I passed on the way to Nick and back out that he had easily the finest shoes on display there. I just wish I had had time to stop by the Mandalay to check out the Men's Clothing vendors...maybe next year.

    Now I'm anxiously awaiting Nick to get back home to the UK and get me an update on my pair on order. :)

    My shoes originally came with a cut on the vamp of the right shoes, so I emailed Nick, and we came to an agreement we are both happy with promptly.

    And I did a bit of repair work and sanding and repolishing, which pretty much hid the mark, though on close inspection, it is still visible.

    I just get HAF soles, which I believe are equally frowned upon :)

    Wear in good Heath Wurger. Can you give the outsole measurements. Curious how they stack up to the TG73. Thanks!

    Likely verboten in SF but I put Vibram on all my shoes too. And taps - heel and toe. Boom.
