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.

    Sorry, just don't like the look of the shoes.

    For that there is no problem, this is a style very "Italian" shoe-tip high and long, yet we can not put on video and in the site traditional shoes "english", but we also do more traditional and for those with particular tastes or needs we can develop custom models and Colour on sample (I do not know if you say so).

    Sorry there are no videos stitched goodyear.

    I like these and would wear them. They look a bit rustic and remind me of Whites boots, which I also love. Welcome to the forum

    A new video with goodyear construction; we realize this technique with a single wire, each point is secured with two knots.

    I like some of the looks on the website. They look to be very well-made, and seem as if they would go well with jeans. Would be be nice to to see more pics of shoes not on the banana-toe last.

    These are awsome (hope you don't mind me using your pics, OP:

    This shoes is fantastic with jeans and with classic suit. I noticed that in the U.S. and Britain do not like the shoes with the tip high and long, whereas in Italy very much.

    This is a prototype, and was not used special leather.

    That's one hell of a welt stitching. Goyser welt? Surprised people aren't creaming about it.
    I agree. The videos are great, more pictures are good too [​IMG] Although those first shoes may not be my style I think they look great. The more classic ones I would wear. Your father has talent.

    That welt is something else!

    I do want to commend you for being receptive to other ideas / styles - it'd be easy to just say "no, we only make this kind of shoe" but broadening out from that is, I think a, step that speaks highly of your family's professionalism and quality!

    If I understand you, I take that as a compliment. I like to talk about what is the story of my family. All our parts have a relative who makes shoes, but almost no one makes shoes that "special" ...

    You can tell the quality of them just by the look [​IMG]

    I quite like the Art. 2011 ones, although at present I tend to wear the thin soled contemporary style of smart shoes.

    I really like seeing anything that's handmade in Europe and all my shoes are handmade in Italy, a lot of them being Paul Smith. Im glad people like your dad still exist in todays disposable world.

    I've never seen Paul Smith shoes, but I noticed the care you have for the quality this evening if I can load the site in English, and I hope to put photos of the fantastic shell cordovan of Illinois arrived Saturday.
