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.

    Can anyone with a pair of A1923 trainers comment on how durable the soles are? Just got a pair and trying to decide if I should protect them. I'd rather not, but if they wear down super fast like Ricks do or something, I'd consider it.

    From my understanding, the cordovan-- true shell cordovan -- on those layer-0 boots (and some previous derbies) is sourced from the private reserves of guidi, which no longer produces shell cordovan.

    And yes, they're exceptional. Right now layer-0 easy produces the best footwear (for this aesthetic) for the (retail and off-market) price.

    For L-0 footwear there is shell cordovan & normal cordovan/horse. The box is stamped with the type of cordovan used.

    /\ Those used to be mine. They are not cordovan, but regular reversed horse.
