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.

    Color 8 Full-Straps maiden voyage. ShoeMart seconds. They managed to get a ton of bloom over the past few weeks.

    Killer boots! Wore mine yesterday!


    Great loafers, Dubs!


    I think they are my boots! Better check my closet...


    Glad we could do more than just make you spend money on shoes, Sazon. Hope you have a better day today.

    New purchase - Alden for JCrew Snuff Suede LWB. I think they're my most comfortable pair of shoes already.

    I've been mulling over your pairs on sale ... what fits closer to your 8D Barries, the 8.5D Grant or 8D Trubalance?

    Get the color 8 indys w/commando. I wear my color 8 indys more than any of my boots...one of my favs easy. I wish mine had commando. I would say the 8D Tru and Barrie fit pretty close. Great boots...pull the trigger.

    Question for you folks - for those of you who live in the US, where do you source your Saphir? It seems like most stores have insane $12 shipping charges.

    Hmm...now the Union Hill is back up at NS. Who's going to be the brave one to order first?

    In NYC it is relatively easy to source - probably not the answer you are looking for in Tx
    Epaulet offers free shipping for orders +$50 (might be your best bet it wouldnt take too much to get you over the hurdle)

    tifosi, you just let me know if you ever decide to let those whiskey LWB go. I'm not the biggest fan of whiskey, but I would love those for my casual attire.

    Got some from citishoes in NYC. I also saw some on Amazon for about half of the shipping cost. NB: ordering from Amazon may take up to about 10 days to 2 weeks, as this happened when I ordered some renomat recently. Of course, instead of Saphir, you could order a ton of Venetian shoe creme from the fore supply source on Amazon. A better value perhaps...

    I added a jar of it to a shoe order from Leffot a while back so I rolled it in with the shipping costs I was already paying for the shoes.

    IMO...saphir tons better for shell. Venetion fine on calf. Yes, I know what all the people in the know and horween have said. But for shell my own use has shown Saphir reno rocks, is the bomb or what ever outdated cliché you want to use.

    The 8D Trubalance fits closer to my 8D Barries.

    Interesting. I haven't used my Venetian yet. The jug just arrived 2 days ago. Experimenting these days with montana pitch blend, which I used on my tobacco chamois. Not a drop of moisture penetrated into the shoe despite my helping a friend push a stuck car in the snow. Going to try it on my cxl indus soon.

    They have been a pleasure to work with plus they carry a ton more Saphir items. They're located in San Francisco FYI and Yes, I've ordered from them before.
