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.

    Full Brogue Derby by Yohei Fukuda???

    [​IMG]
    Nice looking shoes

    [​IMG]
    Love the metal eyelets

    [​IMG]
    Wait a minute...

    [​IMG]
    Whaaa???!!

    [​IMG]
    Yes these are test shoes

    [​IMG]
    Meant to be worn for a month, these are complete handsewn welted shoes, leather taken from the same hide

    Not that other shoemakers don't make take-home test shoes, but these are among the nicest I've seen :lol:

    wow...
    Why they need brogue and metal eyelet on shoes to cut apart...........
    I understand the concept, but does the fit improve dramatically? Looks a bit brutal action to me.

    They are supposed to look and fit exactly like the finished shoes.....a full dress rehearsal I suppose....

    Necessary? Perhaps not. But these are the kind of diligence that probably brings tears to his clients :lol:

    Absolutely unnecessary, unless someone can convince me otherwise..., I suppose I can appreciate his dedication..., though I am sure it reflects in terms of $$$

    I don't recall ever reading of another maker with a similar test pair that Fukuda offers. This must be next level dedication.
