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.

    Those are not mine it was the Bourne. Probably the best model to see well the 106 last.

    The Moore model is now offered on the 724 last as part of the new AS Exclusive line. Which is more of a chiseled toe than the 106. I think I like it better on the 106.

    Here is an other picture (not as nice) where we can see the last better.

    Agreed! I don't believe you find that amount of toespring on the AS Exclusive range. At least not on any I've seen.

    Theoretically...and to a very real degree, as well...the lower the heel the more toe spring is needed. More toe spring "anticipates" the flexing of the foot and works to minimize creasing.

    The shoes above may have too much toe spring from an aesthetic or stylistic perspective but without examining them more closely and comparing them to the last, I suspect that the toe spring is well within reason.

    3+ wears per day is a LOT. Understandable though, all things considered...

    Nice. Is that the camera angle or your feet are *REALLY* narrow?

    Something about those boots brings to mind the term 'StoBtruppen'. But In a good way. In any case they look very 'authoratative'. Groovin' on the chalk stripes too.

    That's the 107 right? Was very long but I went for an 11.5 in it.

    NORE, those look very nice.
    Are they a true grey, or was the color originally lighter?
