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,

    for that price i think it is a good deal, i looked through a few sites (there are people here way better at this than me) and the cheapest decent pair that i saw was $500+

    I bought those from BB about a month ago, and they're now my favorite boots. They look better in person than on their site. I went a half size up from my dress shoe size, and they're quite comfortable.

    They are nice. I saw a picture of Obama wearing the same ones. He likes them too!

    Interestingly terrible picture on the site. Looks like the photographer tried them out for a couple of months before he took the picture. They should take a lesson from RL's photographer.

    I'm wearing them now. Great boots. Here's a pic I took of mine when I first received them: [​IMG]

    I ordered mine when they were half off and wore them around... the sole started to peel off :confused: and I brought them in for an in store exchange. I will vibram the replacements right away so that problem doesn't come up again (which I should have done in the first place cuz i was slipping and sliding all over the place) besides this issue I really love these boots.

    Sounds like typical C&J. This should not affect the function of the boots.

    What so people just ignore this when it happens? It doesn't eventually end up with the whole sole falling off or whatever?

    If youre on either of the coasts I'd recommend seeking out RM Williams over these.

    I'm starting to get some fine cracking on the tops and sides of these boots. Not too pleased. Have applied multiple coats of Renovateur and let soak in. Hopefully this will help.

    So the elastic is OK but the leather is going?

    Yes. Which is really disappointing because I haven't worn them very much.

    Might be time for a return. That's the nice thing about Brooks.

    Good idea. I'll try that and see what they have to say.
