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.

    Cheers,

    He's probably giving others money to Order and buy the shoesfor him and then pays them a fee. He in turn takes the boots and asks them up. He's using "Mules." I kmow
    Someone who is a mule For Nike Jordans when they are released. Kinda scummy racket but times are tough I guess??

    Just noticed some simplified Chinese characters show up on the web site page title. Looks like it is run by some Chinese reseller, at a SF East Bay location (510 area code).

    Unrelated observation. I remember seeing at least three pairs of NIB #2 LWB of different sizes on ebay from a reseller in Hong Kong. The guy must be a relative of Adam.

    Not sure what I will do with my collection when the time comes. Not likely that my only child (daughter) will want mens shoes and boots.

    Great PTBs btw!

    Yeah, this is just a customer who is buying them. I am not sure if he is related to Wayne (the Hong Kong dude) or not. But it seems to be two guys doing this. They have no affiliation with Adam Knott of AoC. They were just willing to buy from him in sizes that people backed out on.

    Wayne has some listings up in eBay now. Ravello loafer and Cigar Chukka are the same as the site (different photos) as well as a Ravello medallion cap toe that is used.

    I guess ppl must really want some of these shoes that they sell and are willing to pay the premium for them.

    I guess this begs the question "Which shoes are you willing to pay a big premium for?"

    Outside the stuff never offered (color 4)

    I can't think of any model I would want that I can't get on a possible list for, or wait around for.
