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.

    I've literally run these under a pipe to help remove caked-on mud. But aside from such scenarios, I care for them the same as any leather shoe - moisturize / clean with Renovateur, then hit them with a cream polish.

    Hey after the winter we have had, anything looks good next to that snow. I wear a pair of 30 year old bean boots when I shovel. Love those two eyelet shells. I will wear those and mix the drinks while your shoveling. :)

    Yes. I will only do Rain last. I think it will look super cool. I need to step away from the computer. Someone hide these posts from Steve until September 1.

    If we do a pebble grain or hatch grain mto for the fall I will be in.

    I have to stop buying shoes. I only have room for a pair of spectators and a cordovan penny loafer until next fall.

    If one wants a bit of variety, consider Soller last for MTOs. As generous as rain at least and rounded.

    I would've snatched up a pair of the noix suede chukka on Steve's website if he had my size.

    I can second the soller rec. I am wearing it right now and even though I have a wide foot it fits quite comfy.

    I might go for the soller too, I am about to receive a first pair of boots in Soller last soon so I will know whether it fits or not. For those of you who have both Soller and Rain, do you take the same size in both lasts?

    My only concern re: Soller is it may not work for a foot like mine. I don't have the traditional wide foot which is why the Rain works for me so well.

    Quote:I own boots in both lasts. I would say that Soller is a (tiny) bit wider than Rain, although I do have the same size in both lasts.

    Well I can only speak for myself, and I was thinking a hatch-grain or pebble grain chukka. Can say I have no interest in a wingtip boot.

    This is the G+G version. I think Carmina could make a killer boot on the Rain last.

    I would probably go for the darker version myself.
