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.

    Yeah I'm not voting for a shell color I don't think AE can acquire at the moment. Anyhow, sad that there's no option for a 2-leather EC like the Galway! I made the suggestion in the comments box anyway.

    Also with regards to the timing, there is no rush to do it on ASAP. There are details I still need to discuss with the forum and AE next week. So for anyone who wants to try the lasts, please do so first as the 222 lasted shoe, which is one of the choices, is a tricky last to nail especially with the cap toe.

    I find the 222 last to fit somewhat similar to the 5 last. I would say the 222 last is slightly more narrow compared to the 5 in the same size though.


    for me:
    Strand = 8D
    EC = 8E would probably be ideal (I do own a pair in 8D and it works for calf as it stretch out comfortable, shell might be too tight in 8D)

    Gentlemen much appreciate if we don't steamroll the process outlined in my previous post.

    I may upset some people but I will take the results of the poll as one input to GMTO spec, not necessarily as the final GMTO spec to submit to AE.

    Thanks for the poll. I took it and am pretty much on board for anything, but Dublin is my ideal. I am all for your merlot make-up, although, would hate to exclude you from the GMTO since you already have them lol.

    I think @watchidiot has yet to check with AE about that (capp shell).

    That makes sense and at least the poll will help eliminate some choices and hopefully make your job a touch easier @watch, thanks again for spearheading.

    I think AE needs to rethink their decision to pull the eagle county. The MTO's that were made are some of the most incredible AE boots I've ever seen. They look incredibly sleek!

    Yes, I agree, but the original design was no wear near my liking and in my best estimate did not sell well.

    Agreed. Even in stock form they are one of the better looking boots that AE made. I've been trying to hunt down some seconds but no luck :(
