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,

    I personally wear the same size on both the 8K and 7K but the 8K is more fitted (not enough to size up). I also wear the same size on the 8695 and their loafer lasts (I can't remember off hand).

    With all the G&G you got in, I'm sure you can find another pair to trample in! Waiting patiently for the listing to see if you have any in my size! :) Oh, nice Drake collaboration!

    Boots

    Yeah, still waiting on Spoo's to see if there are any in my size... I still have a couple of G&G coming too... :embar:

    Thanks!

    Not all, these are just the shoes have a reddish tint to them. The Chambord II boots are only my second pair of suede shoes and I will need to pick up some suede protectors before I walk around in them. :satisfied:

    Nope (hope you don't mind getting the answer from another source). You can buy their trees separately though.

    I know... I'm talking myself out of it because I really don't need another pair of JL, or boots, or NST, or pebble, or rubber soled, etc...

    You normalizing it is not helping :)

    Same size for me. I probably like the 7000 slightly better.
