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.

    Cheers,

    In an attempt to get back on track, here are my Carmina shell split-toe loafers that I picked up while in Barcelona about two weeks ago. I've posted them elsewhere on SF, but shoe damage seems as good a place as any:

    Also picked up a couple of these C&J shell loafers - I unloaded one pair of these already and have one pair remaining in size 9 if anyone is interested:

    I actually enjoy the posts/images that Nore and Issh put up, so its a shame to see the level of decorum deteriorate - I think this thread is big enough to accommodate vintage and modern porn :nodding:

    'Sorosis' Shoes- ?? nasty- up there with the Lee Kee Shipping Co, no wonder they out of biz
    No historian, but seems that shoe styles, like suits, have fashion cycles. praps mid-century gunboats were a reaction to the curvaceous Edwardian pumps below and are being given a new lease by G&G, Lobb, some Vass n dare I say Tom Ford. IMO in a good place right now, with plenty of chunky battleships on offer, and foot hugging pron stars.

    A shame, really: the broguing (and especially the medallion) seems to get lost under that relatively large-scale grain.

    i see that and understand what you mean. I'm a sucker for that kind of grain, though. Very reminiscent of Vintage Veldt stitched shoes... I just got 3 pairs of 1940's (2 NOS) this week and love them. Very tough, rugged and sturdy. LET IT RAIN, those shoes will NOT care!

    YES! There is NO truly "new" designing going on. It's simply (or NOT so simply) recycling an old style and re-introducing it with a fresh "twist" to it. Subtle changes to even the shoes in that ad can lead to some incredibly beautiful and elegant shoes.

    No, it's dark brown, though black suede would be a nice, slightly unexpected choice.

    That sole treatment reminds me of a once loved pair of J&M Handmades.

    That waist lifts up so high. I'm wondering if one could install some tiny blue led lights to the 'under carriage' and rock them 'ghetto' style. Like a hopped up car. :D

    Have the edges of the bevel as well as the spine of the fiddle detailed with tritium or luminous paint.

    These go really well with my puff sleeved shirts I think :)
    The uppers balance the excess underneath, will post other pictures later.
