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.

    Ok, so I had an old pair of shoes with a glued leather sole (no chance of resole), so I figured I'd deconstruct one and see what you guys thought

    Let me know how good or crappy you think it is, and take a guess at the brand.

    A glued shoe can CAN be resoled.
    The difference between goodyear and glued sole (for most people with access to only average skilled cobblers) is not as great as people think it is.

    Poor quality leather insole (grainy) and sole (splitting).
    Maybe even poor quality grain corrected leather (can't see it good enough to be sure).
    Rusted nails (can effect construction integrity).
    Cardboard under heels (never good).
    It very very crappy.

    No interest in the brand.

    I dont know if it is junk, but from goodyear construction and glued sole, there is many difference. I do not know which brand is, but the lining is not even leather, I never buy a shoe like that.

    Just though I would join the gang of people who quote the massive OP and then add very little in the way of comments.
