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.

    Use shoe trees. They're not going to keep your boots from creasing. And use cedar ones. They'll absorb the moisture (ie sweat) that's left after you wear the boots. Left alone it will slowly corrode the leather. I use them in all my shoes, which still look all creased and beat to hell.

    You can get them for <$10 fairly often at Jos A Banks or Sierra Trading Post.

    I've never used shoe trees. Maybe I should. :eek:

    Pretty sure I read somewhere that shoe trees don't actually help your shoes dry faster; they just mitigate the creasing (which I actually like).

    Reddit stuff was interesting until I got to the point where he called Mumford & Sons "artistically accomplished". That song makes me throw up a little in my mouth every time it comes on (probably once a day at the gym).

    Asked muji about the toiletry bag, but apparently it's not waterproof. :confused: Thanks for the suggestion, though.

    Can we make a "sw&d dump" sub forum where all the terrible threads go? Looking at you Alden, naked and famous, non baller sneaker, apc, and sw&d shoes threads.

    Yup

    Plastic shoe trees do the work too. As long as the shoe tree fills the vamp well the creases will be minimal. If you really want to dry the footwear get a dry cloth and wipe down the interior before inserting shoe tree.

    list of cool things:

    longboarders that ride the wrong way on one-way streets
    longboarders that awkwardly ride in the bike lane
    longboarders that awkwardly ride on the sidewalks
    people with really large backpacks and no spatial awareness on the subway
    people with golf umbrellas

    Why photograph what you're selling when you can just post clip-art resembling the auction item?
