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,

    Wow! That is awesome news!
    I would say try the Grant in half size down and see, maybe it could work for you. Some people take Grant TTS and some go half size down...
    If not one of these fine gents will snatch those boots up at zero cost to you I am certain.

    welcome Adam,

    Hoping one day to order something through you, although I'm currently hindered by my 11.5-12 size foot.

    Not if you have a normal width foot.

    Funny, that is exactly how I started this conversation with @rydenfan. He said
    " Grant > True balance" to which I replied " that is subjective, I have a wide foot." And then he got ruffled and.... Well u can see above...

    Nah. Even I cannot justify buying two of the exact same boot (except last and sole) one week apart.

    I just celebrated my one month wedding anniversary. I would not make two if I pulled that!

    Did the big DC captoe order go into production or something? The last I heard it had been delayed.

    So I've been reading that Alden's secret is they apply some acrylic to the shell cordovan. This would explain why their shell always seems a bit shinier out of the box than other makers, which is great. It may be part of the dye they add on to Horween's shell cordovan.

    Does this also explain why just brushing is usually good enough to shine them? Seems like applying conditioners/waxes etc would either cover up the shiny acrylic or start to remove it.

    Adam, any chance of AF9 reappearing? That is an all time great in my book. Thanks, Ed
