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,

    Leffot, the antique trim they offer looks hot. Plus I wanted them without the pull up tabs which the Leffot seems not to have.

    Yep, I went Leffot as well. They will complement these quite nicely:

    Question for the community. I've been pining for a pair of two-tone shell saddle shoes ever since I recently lost out on a pair on eBay. Anyone know if something like this is available? I can find it in calf but would really prefer shell. Thanks.

    I'm thinking of ordering one since it'll be handy to have when I travel.

    It's not shell, but it's only $31. If my keys got stolen, I don't want to be embarrassed by telling the police I had a $125 key ring [​IMG]

    I remember Horween had a run of these in shell. I just couldn't justify it. I'd probably be embarrassed just saying I have a shoe horn on my key ring...as handy as it may be!

    RTP: I'm pretty sure we are referring to two different things. When the old sole is removed in a resole or recraft, much of the corkbed comes off with it. The remainder of the corkbed is then scraped off of the sole-less shoe. New hot cork (chunky-mayonnaise-like in texture) is then spread over the bottom of the shoe (or bottom of the insole?), and the new outsole is then attached. I guess there is an imprint of the original owners foot on the leather insole that can not be adjusted, accept for B Nelson's specific treatment (stretching to flatten??). In the end though, I think the newly applied corkbed probably does much to create a new "imprint" or mold for whoever wears the shoe after the recraft, whether it be the original owner or new owner.

    Could be the case. And again, exactly what they do step by step is something I leave to them. :D

    My thoughts were shared specifically as to the imprint on the insole. My pre-recraft insole imprint has been the same, after the recraft, every time.

    A good day to one and all.
