    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.

    My most complemented pair are my Hugo Boss Grey Suede Tassle Loafers. It's insane the amount of complements I've received from wearing them.

    Alden 911s are fantastic-looking shoes. The design elements really come together almost perfectly, IMO. For all the attention Alden's shell models and custom makeups receive, these might be my favorite Alden shoes.

    They and my LS Ultimate Indy's are the only shoes I ever receive compliments on (not that it happens frequently for either!).

    That crocodile must have had a skin condition because that looks like a fungus.

    Wowsa!

    I'm not normally much of a fan of croc shoes. (I assume that's what they are, but not sure really.) But these have such a unique pattern, and the patina is nothing short of amazing.

    Of course not for all occasions but a family reunion where 'conversation pieces' can be a great thing seems to be a perfect occasion to me.

    I bet many a comment was made!

    I saw these myself & had dealt with Ron in the past, as he antiqued a pair of Santoni Norvegese for me. If they were a lace-up I probably would've pulled the trigger. Great pick by you there, I think.

    thanks for this. My goal is not to get compliments from the members of SF. I just want to show that there's a whole wide, wonderful world of Vintage US-made shoes that rival the top Int'l makers of today. So many modern styles by top makers are simply "bring-backs" of vintage styles from 60+ years ago. You don't have to like 'em. Just know the history.

    Criticism isn't a problem with me, although a few rare people like to act like complete a-holes while being afraid to post themselves. Just a pet peeve of mine.

    Thanks. It's a good compliment from someone who freely posts his purchases as well. Actually not a Croc or Gator. A horned-back lizard. Had been popular as cowboy boots many years ago, but issues with poaching in Brazil made them stop making them. One of 2 pairs I've been able to find. I couldn't help myself because they're so freaky looking. The welt is also a percursor to the Vass Goyser... made in the 1940's.

    My favorite Job Interview shoes. Also wore them to a PETA rally.

    Most of your responses have been exceedingly douchey and condescending but this bit of jackassery is something I can support.
