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.

    Let's do this anonymously, for all ya'll that are afraid to admit the truth.

    And no cheating - I don't care if they are sneakers, climbing shoes or bedroom slippers. Count them.


    Perhaps 70 but all were bought NEW. I hardly think that 50 pairs of of used $20 shoes means much.

    I have about 7 pairs right now (not including running shoes, sandals, boat shoes and winter boots, though I included those for the poal). I just gave away about a dozen old shoes I didn't wear anymore.

    i do not doubt what you say sir. just stating the concerns that came to mind. do you use anything to nourish the leather occasionally? like shoe cream?

    I have a few pairs of Churches that I know are 28 years old and the only thing I've even done to them is rub some mink oil paste in a couple of times a year and occasionally polish them with creme(I don't like a high shine) I don't wear them anymore but they all have original soles and they're not even worn out, shoes still look fairly new suprisingly.
