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.

    I was just killing a rainy afternoon (of which we've had a weeks worth)at Boston's Copley/Prudential Mall. I ended up at a Johnston & Murphy shoe store and bought the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I know J&M isn't the best made shoe in the world, but it is not one of the worst either. The shoe I am talking about is new for this and called the "shuler" Here is the link http://www.johnstonmurphy.com/catalo...7873&VID=47884. It is a plain toe lace up with a rubber sole and flat heel. I got the mediium brown pebbled leather calfskin and it is one of the softest and supplest leathers I have ever felt on a shoe. It is also lined in sheepskin, which is chamois like in it's softness, and has a gel area in the heel and toe. At $120 this shoe is quite affordable and by far the most comfortable shoe I own, I plan on wearing it quite frequently during my New York trip this July. I am very impressed with this shoe.I just noticed on the website that there is this same shoe in a sandadl which may better suit my needs....

    Honestly, I like J&M shoes - I'm wearing a pair of their loafers right now - but that is truly one of the ugliest shoes I've ever seen. If you want a comfortable walking shoe, how about a pair of Rockports?

    Oh well, if you like it...

    To each his own.

    The facts of life seem to be that the best looking shoes aren't as comfortable as the uglier ones. [​IMG]

    One of my first pairs of dress shoes was a J&M tassel loafer, still in my rotation, though I try to avoid wearing them with a suit.

    But I would have probably seconded the recommendation for Rockport or perhaps Ecco if you were looking for that type of shoe. Glad that you found something comfortable that you like....
