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.

    The Dalton looks very nice. My J. Crew cap toe boots shined up tremendously well. they developed a mirror toe quite easily, but I eventually toned it down considerably to make them more versatile. Mirror toe looked great with business attire but not so great with casual attire.

    AE's made such a significant change to their burgundy shell. I assume that's why they had such a big sale on all burgundy shell shoes early this year. I much prefer the "new" burgundy color (as shown in your Dalton) but the "old" color doesn't exactly look badly. I ended up buying the burgundy shell Leeds/PTB and Macneil longwing at a steep discount early in the year.

    Nice boots! You are perfectly suited for fall, winter and spring :)

    I have noticed in your pictures where you have the mirror in front of your shoes that the toes of the soles almost always look completely flat. In other words, the common wear that many people either choose to live with, or they put toe taps on to prevent, doesn't seem to exist on your shoes. Obviously there is alot of variance in the wear in that area depending on people's gait, walking style, etc., but to see almost no toe wear at all is unusual. What is your secret?

    Do you mean JGilbert via the AoC website? I ask only because AoC doesn't currently offer color 8 boots on the plaza.

    It's because he does the Mac break-in method!

    3 separate wearings on carpet so the shoes aren't stiff when you hit the pavement with them. Thats what causes the excessive wear on the toe of the sole. (Stiff shoes on pavement)

    It's been discussed previously
