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.

    So has this been resolved? I was about to order these from Unionmade but thought I would search SF first (good thing I did).

    It's hard to find a US retailer that has the natural CXL Indy boots that ship to Canada that uses USPS (UPS and Fedex are not an option), so if anyone has any other recommendations, please let me know.

    Thanks, MrDV. I just need a #8 wingtip boot and I'll be good with #8 boots. (But don't quote me on that just in case :D)

    They offered to send me a new pair, but I opted for a refund, only b/c I didn't want to risk having the same issue again after seeing a few people post similar issues on this thread. Some boots they sold had this issue, others were fine. Go ahead and order a pair. Unionmade stands behind their product and their customer service was exemplary despite QC issues at Alden. With their responsiveness I wouldn't worry a bit. Good luck with it!

    Curious about shell.

    Why is it that I see some shoes with rolls on them and some without?
    Is it because the shoe was sized improperly? Broken in wrong? or just the person's gait?

    Thanks.

    Probably mostly #3 and sometimes #1. Everyone's feet are different.

    Mainly the person's gait, along with the styling of the shoe. Sometimes it even can depend on the thickness of the shell used in a given pair. Some of my shoes have no real rolls while others, like my chukkas, have huge rolls. I generally like some light rolling in my shell, but others hate it.
