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,

    Did a little rubbing with a soft cloth (pic 1), then used a little wax polish and brushed off (pic 2)
    I think with more brushing tomorrow I can get it even better, but for me, its fine as it is.

    With all the talk about color 8 I thought you gentlemen would like to see some pictures on the different shades. We love our #8 at Unipair.

    Wow. Amazing. Is there any more info on that #8 plain toe boot that you just posted? I wasn't able to find anything on your website about it.

    unipair's post shows why if you had to choose one or the other, color 8 with dark edge probably beats out color 8 with antique edge...

    Hard to believe that on October 2nd, today, it will be 85 degrees here in NYC, while at the end of October 2011 we got 5 inches of snow. I love mother nature.

    Either way, it’s a good day for Color 8 WT boots on the Plaza

    Hello everyone- thought I'd share my color 8 chukkas this morning. About a year and a half of heavy wear and fresh from their first full polish with wax.
