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.

    No problem. Sounds like an awesome trip. Deets on the planned itinerary? We can recommend appropriate footwear to keep it relevant. Recommend you hit up the former Yugoslavia if you get the chance.

    Try these - http://www.citishoes.com/custom_boots.htm - they are a little cheaper (assuming they have some in stock, their site is kind of crappy so it's hard to tell). They look to be the same except for the lack of pull tab, but I've always read that shell pull tabs are a bad idea anyway.

    I don't have my pair yet as its in the mail to my home. If I can swing by the shop again, I will try and take some more pics including a top down photo of them, maybe next to a TB pair.

    Sounds like a good trip. I am always finding new and creative ways to justify shoes.

    These get abused from time to time. Four years and going strong.

    What size? After really wanting to believe, I've found my 11.5D Natural CXL NST boot just doesn't fit.

    Sadly, I am off by 2.5 sizes. Thanks for offering, though!

    Very nice, I'd take that TC pair, let them get beat up. Plenty of other smells on the route to distract from the chamois.

    Looking at my options for #8 WT boots. Let me know if I have this correct :

    Stock model has double leather and hooks
    Madison Ave, citi shoes and AoC and maybe others have commando and hooks
    Halleck and Brixton have double leather and all eyelets

    Are there any other options out there with commando and all eyelets?

    Thank you, gentlemen.

    I always find the first few times putting on new boots with all eyelets sort of a pain. After that, the uppers begin to loosen up a bit and you usually remember to make sure the laces are nice and loose before you put them on and it's not much of an issue any more.

    Ack. I was the one that dropped due to getting in on the AOM Whiskey WTB. Sorry about that - had hoped the spot would've been filled.
