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 live in the NW, because of the rain I am forced to wear my most durable pair of shoes often. Here are my Alden shells with 1/2 rubber protectors installed on the sole.

    I've never seen Alden's as they don't sell in Europe but I allways read comments in the forum about them being unstylish... but those are really great looking.

    are Germany and Italy no longer part of Europe? AFAIK, they are quite popular in those two countries.

    It's a toss-up between the Alden 984 and the AE Stockbridge.

    probably a toss-up between the AE Cornell in Black and the Bruno Magli Kent chelsea in black - since those are the two black shoes I most often wear.

    I wear brown more often, but it gets spread out over more shoes.

    AE Polo
    sized shoe trees from my hometown's shoe store's store stock, well loved and used for several decades (found in the attic of an antique store which took the retail space when the shoe store closed down)
    handmade rug by my grandfather


    First pair of shoes I bought after my new job. Went thru the heels and sole last year. Wore them 1-3 times a week, every week. It's great sucks that it's corrected grain leather, or else they would be my favorite shoe. When they give up the ghost maybe I'll replace them with burgandy and black shell cordo Aldens [​IMG]

    Nice shoes, they look very durable as well.

    Not here... I have seen some Allen Edmonds in only one shop in Geneva and I didn't liked them. True they are well constructed and look good quality but the designs are not of my liking.

    Let's see, in terms of overall time wearing them, I've probably worn my black Kelmes, red/black Vans and my white Jacks the most, but when going out I don't wear them as much, in favor of dressier shoes such as my RL/CJ brown cordovan boots, my CT/Loake brown chelseas, my CJ black chelseas, my EG brogue boots (rocked them last night to great effect)... I seem to wear an awful lot of boots going out. I'll take pics tomorrow.

    15+ year-old 6-hole Docs, which I rarely tie up (unless riding the motorcycle). You hardly need a picture to know what that must look like [​IMG]

    It's a toss-up between a pair of EG Dovers in Edwardian with extra antiquing or a pair of brown Bruno Magli chelsea boots. I wear the chelseas a lot because when I go dancing, I don't mind getting them stepped on. I'll take pics tonight, since I assume the OP is interested in how the various shoes show the wear.

    Very nice Alden monkstraps! How do you get such a great shine on shell cordovan, assuming they are shell?
