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,

    Man up and wear them. I've never been a fan of people who buy things who can't really afford them. Ex: All those guys who buy luxury sports cars but are afraid to drive them like they deserve.

    So I'm the only one who uses a little sandpaper on the soles before I wear them to get them scuffed up enough that I have traction?
    I wear my new shoes while walking the dog before work. The gravel lot behind my apartment does wonders.

    LOL, I have a 7-figure net worth, no mortgage, no debt, and a 6-figure salary. Humble by NYC standards, but I'm pretty sure I can afford some nice shoes. In fact, I already have my eye on the next pair... Also, it's a silly assumption that people don't drive their sports cars b/c they can't afford them. There are a host of reasons why that happens, including the fact that it was a silly impulse/status purchase enabled by their wealth.

    While they are expensive shoes, I'm pretty sure I can afford them.

    Also, it's a moronic assumption that people don't drive their sports cars b/c they can't afford them.

    Get some cloth tape from CVS and stick it to the bottom of your shoes.

    On the internet, every man is a six-foot-six millionaire with no excess body fat, who could buy whatever he wants, he just doesn't want to.

    I prefer 6' exactly. Anything over 6' and you can potentially be called too tall by some petite women; and there are just too many beautiful petite women to run this risk.

    I'm an 11. Send them to me, I'll wear them for a few weeks for you. You foot the postage though.

    As long as you mean petite in both height and width, I agree

    Like I said, those are very humble stats in NY. Quite common, in fact.
    Anyone bragging about something so pedestrian would embarrass himself
    However, it does indicate one can afford a pair of $500 shoes.
