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.

    +1 on your suede gunboats RTP. Looking very suave.

    How do they feel ... they look really snug and too narrow for your foot?
    The crease developing on the cap of right shoe also looks a little concerning ... perhaps consider the pen-trick.

    They are actually one of the best fitting pair of shoes I own. I did not have them tied super tight in the photo but tightened them once I got to the office. I am not overly concerned about the crease as it will brush out pretty quickly and shoes are meant to be worn

    Tempted to ask what last but no way if the bid starts at 750$. Well I guess the market will set the price.

    Haha!! Good ole Barrie! Which makes them my size! Too rich for my blood. I have a hard time paying that money now when I know I get shell boots for less!

    I will stick to black and #8 Aldens if that is the price for anything else.

    Agreed my size as well. It isn't a grail for me I'd much rather a ravello nst boot or shoe. All the nst love lately has me hooked.

    I am on the hunt for an NST, too. I will pay the exotic premium for that. I just ordered a cappuccino shell PTB thru AE, so that will scratch that itch.

    I get needing to sell them but drives me crazy when people look to turn a profit from it. So not my style...

    I would image that is the only reason they bought them as well. Quite possibly...

    We are purists. I can see why given someone's potential situation they could seek to maximize their profit. I agree though it feels similar to shelling out three times the ticket value for a nfl game to some hustler who could care less about the team.

    Might be quite lucrative to go out and buy all the exotic shell you can wether it's your size or not...then sell.

    Seriously, prices like that (if they're actually being bought) are making me consider flipping my Cigar LWBs just to try. Geez.

    Yes, there is already a bid at $750 with 5 days left on the auction. They will sell for at least $750.

    Could have sold them here and saved a lot of eBay fees. At cost I would have bought them

    And these are a size 8 so on a cost per inch basis your 12 or 13 should go way higher :)

    If that is the case, Argentino, I'll buy your cigar LWB and I'll cut them in half and make 2 pair that I can sell and make a killing on![​IMG]
