Straight out the box! WELL worth the wait. ps - sorry about the image, I'm new to SF and still trying to figure it out. No worries, nice boots! This is how I learned to post images: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=1937 If your pictures are too big to upload on imageshack, open it with Paint and click "Resize". Make it like 480x720, and this doesn't have to be exact, just small enough to upload. I usually resize it again under "Upload Options/Resizing" to 640x480 and get rid of the thumbnail label.
