    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.

    Yea my soles are getting replaced on my officer boots. The foam ones are super comfortable and light but they just dont feel like quality boots with them.

    Please post how it goes, or have you read about someone who's done it? Is it just like re-soling any other boot? I'm thinking maybe it wouldn't be easy to do because of the material they used.

    I mean the foam sole. Can a cobbler just switch it out to a more traditional sole? Because of the foam I associate them almost as much with sneakers as with boots.

    The BRED Saint Laurent are really dope and definitely reminiscent of Jordans. They came out with a Black and Royal version too.

    I just picked up a Hyden Yoo overcoat from Gilt for $120. Was pretty happy with that since I was looking for a slimmer overcoat for awhile:

    Short answer kind of….

    If ripping off Jordan is putting color on the toe box of the high tops they have been making for the last 3-4 seasons, but making them in Italy instead of China, and using butter soft leather instead of sub-par leather Nike uses these days. The outsole on Jordan 1s always match the secondary color, the all white here, and not quite so much red class the SLP version up quite a bit.

    I saw those SLP in person. They're pretty nice.

    Don't suppose those Balmains were from SuFu?

    New Persol 9649 sunglasses...not 100% sold on them though. I feel like they might be a little big (55mm). Thoughts?? Thinking I need to go find a 52mm and compare the two.

    keep, size down, return???

    So they pretty much made an even higher top version of the MMM gat, which btw they look disproportional :crazy:
