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.

    Ouch! Them's fightin' words round these here parts.

    TBT, there are plenty of others here that wouldn't buy them, but "clown shoes" is a little over the top.

    I wore mine today for the first time since February. They are awesome. I think they are a bit under rated on this thread as they have been available for several years and they come from J Crew. I love them! Enjoy often and in great health my young friend!

    BTW, are your Ironrangers really the same size? The J Crew boots look like they can fit inside the Ironrangers!

    A great looking shoe for business casual or more sporty dress wear. What's the point of hating on taste?

    I think the ironrangers look bigger because of the way I took the picture. I don't know.. lol Those are 9D and the Alden boots are 8.5D.
    I totally agree with you that they are a bit underrated.
    Thanks for all the good words, sir!

    Took me a couple of days to get to the pics but here are some shots of the suede indys with red brick soles with about 20-30 wears on them. I am a heavy heel striker so my heels wear faster than most I think.

    If they're your bag, more power to you. I'm just stating my opinion. I have respect for many members here who covet color 2. Just not my choice of color and I don't mind being blunt about it.

    Apologies in advance for not using spoiler but I'm not sure how to from my phone. Love this pair of boots. I don't care how many times I see them; they look fantastic with a range of attire. I wear mine often and always feel great in them. Your pair looks immaculate. Enjoy my friend.

    Well, you know what they say about opinions: like assholes, everyone has one. The fact that you are proud to be "blunt" about it, doesn't make it smell any less.
