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,

    Did they have to tan your shell or something for you??? That's crazy to have to wait that long.

    Haha, I was waiting the last 24 hours for the Chrome remark.

    If nobody did, I was going to do it.

    Can AE take a style that is normally made on a 5 last, and make it on a last more accommodating to a high instep?

    I do not believe that they will change lasts. I am sorry, never hurts to ask, but I wouldn't get my hopes too high.

    No. Blaster or Coldiron. I have really only done 4 MTOs myself. I have some more in my mind, but only need soo many shoes...

    That's really too bad. The only thing that has prevented me from buying a pair of walnut strands is the bulbous round toe of the 5 last. If they could be made on the 8 last, I'd be in heaven.

    What does everyone think of a pair of Mora's in Lily White Suede with either a toe-cap with a medallion, or just the medallion by itself?

    Sorry, AFAIK AE wont put a medallion where the original shoe doesnt have one. You can have a medallion removed though.

    You could MTO the "Strand Golf Shoe" with a standard walking sole. It's on the 73 last (same as Pine River and Shaker Heights). Up until last week, had been on sale for $200.

    How's this work with MTOs? Do you get the sale price for anything that's discounted as long as it's not discontinued?
