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.

    Hi all,

    I recently got into the world of men's shoes and my first purchase was a tan, unfinished leather desert boot. Anyways, I didn't know anything about shoe care so they got dry after about a month of wearing them (see picture). I bought neutral conditioner with hopes of repairing some of the dryness, but it some how made the cracks more visible. There are now white streaks where the cracks are. I don't really know what to do now. I know the cracks can't be removed, but is there a way I can at least get the color to be all the same again? If not, any advice for next time? I'm not sure why this happened; the climate is pretty humid here and it's only been a month.

    Thanks so much!

    Julian

    Who made the shoes? I'm guessing it's a lower end maker

    They're actually Sperry's. I'm guessing that's at the lower end. I loved that color D:
