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 my opinion a man should know and should do his own shoe shining, taking care of your shoes for me means much more that just cleaning your shoes, It means that you care about things and probably that reflects in many other aspects of your life.

    Another important thing, I only use Saphir Medaille D'or products on my shoes and I've never seen a shoeshiner using them although they are considered the best thing you could treat your shoes with. That always leads me to think that there isn't a single person that could care more about my own shoes than myself and that's why I love taking the time and love to care for them home.

    @shoeguide

    If you are not actually the guy who runs the shoe shine stall at the Park Lane Hilton,
    you must at hold least significant shares in the business. :D

    Hi
    Justin shoe snob is just as good I just have a passion for my shoes and feel that apart from Justin and Hilton its a dying art.
    Would like to see more that take pride and not just on look out for quick turn around
    I have used Steven at Hilton for a while and tried Justin but I travel to Europe and theres nobody.
    Even in Italy and France its rare.
    Might buy some shares lol or start my own im sure many in this day amd age would love a job
