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.

    From the pics, at least, they really don't seem in need of a recraft.

    @tifosi Maybe I'll just ride them hard through the holidays and send them in after that. I respect your guys' opinion and why blow $169 if you don't have to, right. Looks like I'll need to order another bag from Alden.

    Does anyone know if you can get replacement rubber heels from Alden?

    Tampa, of course they are your shoes and you can do what you wish with them. What is making you think of sending them in?

    And before the rain/snow, Leffot Naval boots:

    Sweet looking tassels. Stay classy San Diego.
    Great shot. Cool boots.
    I like Alden's recrafting program. I don't like how dark color 8 comes back from the process. I will ask them not to make them dark next time I use them.

    I really don't need another pair of grain LWBs (have two from AE already), but those are soo nice.

    The ball of the foot is getting kind weak on the sole. There's also some small cracking at the top of the shoe where the shoe bends. I figured Alden could fix that better than the cobbler in my building at work.

    Thanks for the compliment! This is my first pair of AGrain shoes, so far I'm very impressed with the material and appearance of the shoe. Epaulet taunton boot is next on my list.

    I would definitely treat them with Leather Defender if possible.....I have a pair of alpine grain loafers that have water marks from wear in wet conditions.....I was disappoined as I thought the make up was made for that type of weather

    Thanks for the suggestion! Will definitely apply some tonight before wear tomorrow. I was under the same impression that AG is made for wet weather as well.

    The consensus is 1/2 size down from your Brannock measured size.
    So, if you are a 9D Brannock, you would likely be 8.5D Barrie.

    I would just wipe them down with a damp rag and then apply a good coat of your conditioner of choice. My #8 LWB tend to gather prolific water spots that become prominent in between treatments. I'd love to see the patina after they're cleaned up a bit. Do you use shoe trees?
