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,

    Let's hope! I'm on 3 pre-orders at the moment and 2 are non-shell as I'm trying to build that arsenal up. Will said that Alden only has 2-3 people capable of producing NSTs, which is why there is such a delay on all those. The Context tanker has been 6 months running now. Not sure if the Leffot tanker ever showed up.

    So nice. One of my top grails. I doubt I'll live to see a pair on my feet.

    I'm a little late to this but my goodness these are so cool. Could be the angle and/or lighting but these almost look two-tone. Color 6 on the vamp and color 8 on the rest, kind of like saddles. I posted a few days ago that I really don't know what patina is. Well, I think I just witnessed it on a pair, and they are..........Spectacular!

    I got these off the SF Marketplace. Worn 1 time and mint condition.
    I completely understand your comment about living to see a pair on your feet.
    Imagine my surprise when these showed up in bigfoot 13D! While difficult I've managed
    to get in on some awesome scores the last few years...mainly pre-orders, or tons of phone calls and
    emails. It does eventually pay off. Now if my damn Ravello WTB will show up from AOM I'll be happy.

    Good Luck!

    Very nice boots! Were these in lieu of waiting for Ravello from AOM?

    Much thanks! In a darker room, they don't look as two tone. But in moderate to strong light, they definitely have a somewhat significant contrast. I think all the hide variations made shoes/boots interesting. I prefer my dress shoes to be more uniform, but I'm all about the natural contrasts on more informal models. For me, the patina potential of shell is what draws me to them. This is why color 8 is king!

    I'd pre-order these again from this pic. Can't wait till these arrive hopefully before end of 2015.
