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.

    Mike's pics are so good, I'd probably buy them. And I'm an 8.5D! LOL

    Haha true! I guess you could stuff some insoles in there, and wear multiple socks and it could work... I'd have to cut off some toes, and I probably would for some of the things in his collection!

    Haha. Maybe I could cut the toe part off of one of my shoe trees and just leave it in there to fill up the gap...

    Yeah, I could do that, but why? I had custom made shoes. They should fit me, not me fit them! :)

    BTW, thanks on the pictures... Its not my skills, the lighting in my office is absolutely amazing, getting the right light on your subject is about 99% of photography. Plus I use a f1.4 prime lens, and that makes absolutely everything look significantly better!

    ^ Yes I was replying to tif (jokingly) about stuffing his 8.5's into your 10.5's.

    However, I was being quite serious about cutting off all of my toes should I ever have the chance to get some of the things in your collection ;-)

    Gentlemen,

    My MTO Brown Shell Strands. I absolutely love the design and plan to get them again... but in my size.

    Am really liking the brown color (it's quite dark - almost cigar like.)
    Stunning shoes!

    Mdavis, those are absolutely beautiful.

    I ordered my Strand (again), this time in 10.5C, which is how I wanted it. They didn't exactly offer to return the 10.5Ds since they did send me a PDF to validate the order and I did. unfortunately I just looked at the specs and not the sizing. So I am on my own. But at least someone (hopefully here and not on eBay) will get a beautiful shoe that is one of two and fits them perfectly.

    If I were you , Dubs, I would have just said to AE... "don't you know who I am?". I think that would have settled everything.

    That sucks. I am sorry to hear that. It is an unfortunate error but hopefully they worked something out with you to make you happy

    Mike- this is an awesome thread. Thank you for organizing and keeping this updated!

    I do not thank you, however, for likely making me spend more money.

    :paranoia:
