    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.

    This ranks among my favorite threads. Equal parts craziness + funny sarcasm + insightful information.

    I particularly enjoyed the repeated links to shoes you own, then repeated mention of the price. I was incredulous, but then when I realised what a baller you obviously are, I decided you are right: Leather is diamond hard, and unyielding as a scorned jewish grandmother.

    5 star threak.

    I suggest you look around for poron insoles - these are the same insoles that RM Williams and Ugg Boots use, and both brands are renowned for their comfort.

    You, sir, are a philosopher. I piss on your enemies' graves.

    The oracle says black shoes costing more than $500 are a waste of money. Please change your user name to "BlackShoes Less Than $500".

    Actually, I wouldn't even pay $200 for plain black shoes.
    Pair of J&M's would be just fine.
    My bias also stems from the fact that I don't wear black shoes for style points (funeral, etc)
    So, when it's reduced to a "uniform", there's no need to spend much, as they all look the same.

    I just paint my foot black if I find need of black shoes. 99% of the people in the world are not smart enough to tell the difference.

    My friend actually gets compliments on this a lot. I think I'm going to begin discarding all my black shoes on this advice.

    Beware. I was told by a bar wench that my painted black feet made me look like an "old man". I took a picture of said foot, posted it on SF, and was soundly chastised.

    Sorry, I don't believe that barefeet can look blobby like AE's. What could be sleeker than bare feet? Who needs George Clevely's chisel toe shoes, honestly?

    Well, if they're black I would pay about $125 for a bespoke pair, but not a penny more.

    Hey, if you suckers want to drop $500 on a pair of plain black shoes, what do I care? I personally think the money could be put to much better use. Like a pair of whiskey shell wingtips. To each their own. The funniest part about all of this is 90% of the SF posers don't even own $500 black shoes, so I don't even see what all the indignation is about.

    Are you stalking me? I'm going to alert security. Next time you photograph my home will be your last.
