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.

    I am known to be hardworking and adaptable. I'm also addicted to shoes and will readily absorb and retain information pertaining to them.
    I will also work for free, if you set me up with a beautiful Nordic woman.
    So is SkoaB hiring?

    Well if you can settle for a decent Swedish woman and not a beautiful? In this range?

    I think it might be the other way around? But I have no knowledge at all about Meermin to be honest. Carmina is definitely thriving. They would never changed their US price policy if they were struggling.

    That's good to hear. As I said I really like they makeups and their lasts fit me incredibly well. I just heard from a few US retailers struggling with the line as a result of Meermin. For an overseas made product it looks decent but I don't find them in the same league

    A retailer should be able to explain to his clients the difference between a pair of Meermin and Carmina. But we'll see how the new US price policy will effect them. Short term they have probably taken a huge hit on their (direct) US sales but long term it's most likely a good decision.

    Frankly, the customer should be able to tell themselves. I had an MTO Meermin, and the quality difference between it and Carmina was apparent even in the insole. I quite liked the plum museum leather on the shoe though.

    Skoak gents, was browsing the Skoak US site on my iPhone 5S, and the pop up advertising the free show trees is blocking the site. I can't click the "X" to close the ad because doing so just triggers the shopping cart page, which also gets blocked, lol.

    Just thought I'd pass along the bug info.

    If the ad appeared further down the screen, or if the X were on one of the lower corners, I suspect it wouldn't be a problem.
