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,

    If #4 looks that good in pictures I almost don't even want to see it in person

    FWIW, I have previously done just that. And here is what I was told:

    1. JR soles used for restorations only; and
    2. used for laced shoes/boots - shell and calf; and
    3. not used for loafers (deemed too inflexible)

    Nice shoes. :nodding:

    Shell PTBs on Dainite are wonderfully versatile. I have the same in walnut shell and black shell.

    For browns, I prefer cigar and ravello over color 4. And I prefer color 8 over them all. :nodding:

    Thank you tifosi.

    Thank you. Yes, ep's caramel. My first and most worn pair of rivets.

    The color is interesting. The shades vary, every #4 shoe seems a little different.

    Put the brush down and wear your shoes. Brush them a couple of minutes before you go out the door and another couple minutes after you're done. You're not going to sustain the shine when you walk around all day anyway. Spend the time hunting for another pair! :)

    I wouldn't send them back to Alden, and here's why. You're obviously very particular. Not a bad thing, but Alden isn't a particular sort of company. They'll slap another layer of their secret sauce on them and ship them back out. Some have had wonderful results, but the vast majority have been complete disasters, at least to my eyes. The shoes are darker, color is off from one shoe to the other, the dye actually PEELS OFF. I've never sent a pair to them for work because in the end Alden does what Alden wants and you suffer the potential consequences. Just my two cents.

    If it were me, I'd just wear them as normal, the Reno will evaporate, things will even out, and then polish with a cordovan crème. In the end, they're shoes. They're going to get beat up, you're going to stand in puddles of piss in the men's room, they're going to get rained on, etc.
