1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Agreed. Other retailers would do well to emulate their product photos.

    I install those black nylon/plastic heel and toe taps ... they are super easy to install and replace.

    For me, the LWB run a little larger than my barrie lasted boots (J Crew cap toe), but not enough for me to change the size.

    Thanks. I am considering stepping up both a half size and width. The D width Barrie fits me will but is just a touh tight on my wingtip boots (I simply use my thinner soks and its perfect). I need to try an E width in each to see the fit. Plaza is tough to find to try though. As a result I end up buying mainly Barrie lasted only because I know exactly how it fits

    I really like the sleek modern look of the Plaza last but am concerned it may look too dressy. Do any owners of boots on the Plaza (preferably #8) wear these with denim? Or is it typically with a dressier pant?

    When did the preorder for these start? I got in on a pre-order for a pair of tan suede longwings from LS in January of 2012. I was hoping those would be ready for this summer.

    Nice shoes guys! Hoping The Shoe Mart drops an email soon with their seconds so I won't have to wait so long to buy a pair of Aldens! :slayer:

    I just ordered a pair of shells from the list they mailed me two months ago. Hoping a new list with a solid boot selection comes out soon!
