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.

    Though I've owned my commando chukka's for a few months, these represent my first opportunity to wear commandos outdoors.

    I can say without the slightest hint of equivocation that my feet have never felt this good. We'll see how they feel after 8+ hours of wear, but the initial review is certainly positive.

    Congratulations on finally going commando. I know it can be a bit intimidating at first. But, as you have seen, going commando can be liberating. It feels great -- breezy and light. There is a squishy comfort in each step that you can't get otherwise. I bet you feel better after 8 hours than you do now.

    You wear it well. Enjoy.

    I think mine would stay the same if were color8. I thought the PCT might jump ahead of the Indy, but I'm not sure. Tanker will always be on top for me.

    Thanks, NAMOR. I confirmed my suspicion that it was an editor or something for a fashion magazine. Now that I see her name of course I remember. Zana Roberts. My wife is obsessed with fashion and something fashion related is typically on our TV. Although I would have never guessed her name from memory, I knew who she was.

    Thanks. Now I can sleep.

    Back to shoes. Carry on...

    These pebble grain wing-tips originally owned by our own sazon.
    Sold them and bought a similar pair of ravello shell cordovan wingtip boots.
    But really missed the burgundy tones and texture.
    The guy I sold them to listed them on ebay and was nice enough to sell them back to me.
    Generally they work better with my outfits.
    In all the rare shell fetishization I think people forget that lighter & orange tones are more difficult to use.

    Thank you ! I don't think its new. I remember seeing it previously.


    Thank you!


    Appreciate that !


    Good to see my babies being well taken care of ! Those were a great make-up. I missed the pebble grain so much I ended up buying LeatherSoul's alpine boot!

    Thats awesome meso. I once bought back a pair of Grant lasted black shell boots on ebay after it had travelled 12,000, having criss-crossed the country 5 times. I had originally purchased the boot from another SF'er who first bought it off the seconds list from the shoe mart. The boots didnt fit him properly so I was glad to take them off of his hands. Shortly thereafter, the back seam busted and the original owner was nice enough to allow me to send them back to him so that he could ship them to the TSM for service. TSM then ships them to Alden for repair and returns to TSM. From TSM to original owner in DC. From DC to me in Cali. Well Alden botched the repair and the seam came undone jsut days later. At that point, Alden offered a refund and back to Alden they went, regretfully. A couple months later they pop up on eBay from a seller in Georgia. Bought them for a solid price and had a local cobbler repair the back seam with a piece of black shell sourced from Meermin's Argentinian shell tannery. Ive since criss-crossed the globe a couple of times, each time with the Grant boot. Versatile and stylish enough for the streets of Paris, yet rugged enough to climb Machu Pichu and back down again. Im glad to have the boot back
