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.

    Cheers,

    Those look amazing I have a pair of City II's closer to that color and they look even better as they have aged.

    Wear them well

    Thanks, Im hoping they will get better with age :)
    are you using neutral or brown cream/polish or mixing them for your City IIs?
    I was thinking to go pure neutral to get them slightly lighter in color.
    As you said, inside they look black.

    thanks.
    I'd be interested to see how they look now. If you could take some pics and post here or PM me I'd be most grateful :)

    These are a little older but have gotten significantly more wear.

    Now I look at it however you might have a darker brown starting point.

    How would you guys say the 9795 last compares fit and sizewise to, say, the EG 888/202/184 lasts? Or maybe the C&J 337/341? Thanks!
