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.

    Sorry I was joking, but I guess that typed to quickly for the haha to show up. Sorry about that.

    Things happen when wearing them and that is what builds character when you keep polishing and taking care of them. I have had things happen to my shoes as well and some actually look better now because of it, especially the more casual ones.

    I think that when one has more than....lets say...30 pairs of good leather shoes is in the passage to that category. Ask Jazzmeco and some others and see how do they feel. Definitely, I am not [​IMG]

    Speaking of wearing them, I'm currently working out salt stains from my second pair of St.Cs this season.... Not fun. Those surprise rain showers on the salted pavement--get me every time.

    Quote:Really - just buy them to keep them pristine in the box and never wear them? I wouldn't get much joy out of that. But to each his own. People collect all manner of objects that they don't actually use. Some people may refer to my assembly of shoes as a "collection" insofar as they go well beyond basic need in both number and diversity. I prefer the term "rotation" as they are all worn.

    Oh I know what you mean. I have gotten hit with that a few times. During the last storm in the philly area, my parking lot covered everything in salt so there was no way to avoid it. That's life but really as long as we clean them, they are fine.

    Nice. Is that a new model or you asked to change the facing from their original square shape to a teardrop shape?

    Amazing! Always wanted to see that model with teardrop shape rather than the standard square shape

    Wow, if those are the ones they remade for you, they really dropped the ball on that. Congrats on your first pair, they look great.

    What do you mean they dropped the ball? Is there something wrong with the bottom pic?

    Nothing wrong with the bottom picture. I was referring to how much different the pairs were. The second pair had perforated cap toe and perforation by the lacing and the heel. The first pair they sent didn't have any of that. I was saying if they missed the medallion and the perforation, they really messed up the first time.
