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.

    For me, Chucks have been the most uncomfortable shoes I've ever worn.

    Great idea for a thread though, I've been looking for a pair of summer beat-up sneakers.

    This thread also serves as a convenient gauntlet for rounding up plebes so that my assistant doesn't have to spend as much time sifting through the entire forum for worthless members to add to my Ignore List.

    That's a good idea. Having a plebe ignore list and a fat ignore list is something to start figuring out

    What are your favorite non-baller high tops other than the Converse Highs?

    As a dedicated wearer of boots it pains me to say this, but chucks are the most comfortable shoes I've owned in my adult life. The only competition they have is a custom pair of Wesco engineer boots that I can't wear with any jeans I currently own (I really mean can't; they either wouldn't fit over them at all, or would be stretched tight and look super-ridiculous).

    It's the softness of the upper and the flatness of the sole that makes them work for me. Other shoes tend to irritate my little toe, and there are just general dimensional problems (my feet are a little narrow and a little flat) that lead to woe. So a shoe that's basically a sack tied to your foot turns out to be ideal.

    I like the look of Stan Smiths, and unlike the shoes in the other thread they're something I could conceivably get this year. I do fear that the harder leather construction will make them less pleasant to wear.
