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.

    That certainly gets the HEWSINATOR nod of approval as well.

    Those are really sweet... I wish I could justify buying yet another pair of boots.

    If you're looking for an alternative, I found a site that makes custom engineer boots in brown, and they will actually fit you. But the leather doesn't look nearly that nice. However, they have lots of different leathers you could probably ask for.

    Yeah, those look sweet.
    The heal looks really high though, could be the one thing dissuading me from getting them.

    Nah, it's pretty normal. Better than a lot of engineer boots, it's not an undercut heel which I think looks particularly weird. In any case, it appears to be a stacked leather heel, so if it really bothered you you might be able to get it shaved down by a cobbler.

    Interesting, didn't know "shaving" was even an option.
    I do love that Tobacco leather though.

    Yeah, stacked leather heels can be completely removed/replaced if necessary, or a layer could be taken out. I think once you got used to wearing the boots, you'd notice they don't look that unusual, though.

    1.5" is roughly standard. I don't like the 2" heels on other Frye boots, personally.
