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.

    600usd, in good shape is a fair price for the S52M- I have 2 brown pair I use for beater boots (reverse horse & full grain horse).

    LOL- I got them for a steal under 400usd for each and they full sets: box/laces and tags! They were both pre-owned but in superb condition.

    I surf yahoo jp or rakuten at least once every other day- some true gems to be had. FWIW-I'd take a brand new or like new pair of CDiem's over anything out today.

    if horse leather weren't awesome, why would horses wear it as often as they do?

    Too bad it's almost impossible to find anything bigger than a 43 on yahoo or rakuten, what search terms are you guys using anyway?

    I see a lot of guidis in 44/45 that never sell on y! japan, they just get re-listed all the time. Good prices to be had for those. Haven't seen very many cdiems go past 42/43 though. I've been tracking things since summer too, which is ironic because I didn't want to wait for a custom order pair but it ended up taking me just as long to find something I liked.

    I've kopped two pairs of m.a+ and a pair of carpe in size 44 from y!. Under $500 for each. Just gotta keep those eyes peeled.

    Got a pair of Carpe Diem clogs in destroyed horse coming in. Ready for summer.
