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,

    Quote:It pretty much has to be burgundy for me. I have black covered, and think brown will be well covered by my existing Carmina suede bal boot and incoming Carmina shell captoe derby boot. The only other bal boot colour I am after is dark navy blue, but I'd be reluctant to go with Bonafe here absent seeing an example from them. I know that a Carmina 80092 is navy shell or navy calf upper with navy suede shaft would be absolutely killer. And Vass does an outstanding navy wingtip bal boot. At present, i suspect I will go one of those two routes for navy. Burgundy seems like a sure thing from Bonafe here - the job they did on that shoe is as good as it gets, IMO. And of course, I will almost certainly look with envy upon the brown derby Bonafe boot being cooked up by our friends.

    Quote:With Carmina's steep MTO premium it would have to be a GMTO to make a navy boot happen for me - otherwise for that money I'd just get Vass. But I'll see where this burgundy bal boot goes and what the expected turnaround is at that point. I don't want 4 GMTO boots all arriving at once in the fall, and I already have two out there. ;-)

    If you Pommys on that beautiful island of yours would be so kind and order the same amount of our lovely shoes as the Yanks, Aussies and Canucks I'd love to! :)

    Speaking of enhancement, you guys should record the pronouncination of your store name and upload it to Forvo.

    This is what I could come up with in such a short time: http://translate.google.com/#sv/en/sko-aktiebolaget please click on the speaker to the left (Swedish) to listen to an almost 100 % correct pronouncination. The word "aktie" [aktsie] should not be "dragged out", but pronounced naturally as "aktsie" instead of "akktssie".

    Hey Leaves, is there any word on the restock for the Carmina balmoral boot in grain combo?

    I think this sounds very interesting! Will have to go by Skoaktieboaget to try on sizes but I'm absolutely in love with the Bonafe burgundy cap toe and a boot in combination with black suede sounds tempting :) /Christian
