    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 actually had a couple pairs evaporate before my eyes while still in the shopping cart... I guess the system allows two or more people to have the same item in their carts, and whoever pays first gets it /shrug

    J. Crew captoe boots made on a last OTHER than Barrie?

    I bought a pair of the J. Crew captoe boots and exchanged them due to a defect. When I got the new ones home, it occurred to me that the soles look considerably narrower than those of my Barrie LWBs (and I think, narrower than the boots I turned in). J. Crew's website still says the boots are on the Barrie last. But is it possible that they are also making them on a different, narrower last? I'm not sure if the numbers on the inside of the boot would answer the question - I tried googling them and nothing of interest came back.

    I think this is due to the J.Crew boot being a flat welt, and your LWB likely being a reverse welt. The welt will effect the size of the sole of the shoe. I briefly had a LWB with a flat welt, and when compared to my LWB with a reverse welt, the sole of the flat welt shoe was significantly smaller (even though both shoes were same size and definitely both Barrie lasts).

    Not sure what your LWBs look like, but pay attention to the welt on both shoes. My whiskey PTB's have an all around welt that makes them look a little more substantial than a shoe with a closed welt like the Jcrew captoe boot

    I want to liberate those #40 Indy shoes thought I already have the 405s. I can justify that, right? :nodding: Right?
