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.

    Thanks, have just looked them up!
    What will happen if I don't? Shoes are not super expensive.

    I respect the authenticity of your shoe philosophy, but I still don't get what u don't like about it. Is there a rule u can't have a counter on an NST? Apart from that it ticks Fritzl boxes - doesn't it? hand-stitching, solid sole sans fancy-schmancy fiddles and bevels, definitely not a ' ballet shoe'. and it's got history and heritage. Sure it's gemmed, but so's every other EG.
    just sayin ..


    forget the gemming and the fact it's from EG.

    not a rule, i know of. e.g. the alden, g&g, carmina etc. have a heel counter, too.

    probably i cannot put my finger on it. the mix of different stitching patterns doesn't help.

    The damage will get worse and worse. Sunken toe taps are not expensive to have installed, but not all cobblers can do it well. If your cobbler can't do it, you can have regular toe taps (metal or rubber) installed for around $20.

    I'd get some Barge Cement from a hardware store or cobbler and glue them back down.
