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,

    Hey everyone. Long time listener, first time caller. Made my first plunge into Alden Shell and had a question on some of the creasing I'm seeing. While the shoes fit perfectly as far as I can feel, there seems to be some diagonal creasing developing close to the toe of the shoe. Is this normal? I wonder if there's anything I can learn for my next purchase or anything I can do now. Here's a pic of the shoe, slightly bended to highlight what I'm mentioning.

    to me that shoe looks too big for you either in width and length or just width...and there is the shot that if that shoe really does fit correctly that the last is not good for you.

    Also assuming the bulge is your where the ball of your foot is(ugh i hated typing that) then indeed those are too big the ball of your foot shoulbe be at the widest point not behind it

    Welcome to the Barrie last.

    The Barrie has so much volume up front that it is impossible to fill out with a standard width foot. I had similar diagonal creasing with my Barrie shoes. Only cure would be to order a C width.

    Creases on my ex-Whiskey LWB:

    I think that might be due to the the angle from which the picture is taken (while his foot is flexed forward)... so the ball appears to be further below the widest part of the welt.

    @jvillal I'm guessing they have too much volume, but if they feel right to you after a day of wearing, there's not much to worry about

    OK - today was pretty cool! (with a caveat - but more on that later)

    I arrived at work to this:

    Box 1
    [​IMG]

    A little darker in person in the indirect sun, but...
    [​IMG]
    They fit great. Will clearly take more breaking in than the CXL Indy's. Color me happy... (for the moment)

    While I was trying on the boots, a fourth box arrived

    [​IMG]
    (for the boots I don't have yet...) [​IMG]

    Supplies...
    [​IMG]

    And the box I didn't have time (and still don't) to do anything more than glance at...
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    On taking off the boots, I noted a small scratch where the welt is joined [​IMG] [​IMG]


    Just called AoM. I'm hoping they have another 11.5D...

    More and better pix later. Got a business thing tonight. Going out in the Indys!
