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,

Teach me about shoe trees

    I bought several pairs of Woodlore Ultra trees in what I'm assuming is the correct size; the size recommended by Woodlore corresponds to the size of the shoes. When I insert the shoe tree, it fills the upper, puts quite a bit of tension on the vamp and straightens out the sole. I imagine this will help alleviate creases, but I'm concerned the tree is too big for the shoe. The tree is bigger than my foot.

    Please pardon my ignorance, but I appreciate your thoughts.

    That's the point of the shoe trees, to put pressure and straighten the shoes. It mostly works fine for me, except for a pair of loafers which got stretched by the shoe trees inside them and now are barely wearable.
