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.

    When I just joined SF they were going on sale at this local store in Brisbane, $350 for donkey backzips and $400 for sidezips. I really regret not buying them all to this day.

    I would say Carpe Diem is the best of all time due to the lore. Can't put a price on that.

    In line with the croc jive, Premiata made these for Isaac Sellam. I am guessing they have made this to Isaac's requirement(given the varying degree of construction a factory works with) than what they usually put out. Perhaps those who have handled this particular pair might be able to drop a word or two of their quality.

    Yeah if you are looking at used prices then Carpe would be pretty low tier too since it's not particularly expensive used. NIB from yahoo japan isn't that expensive too, certainly not like retail CCP/Augusta and probably m.a.+ levels.

    M.A+ is built at the same factory as Carpe was... not sure why it'd be a tier 2.

    You're right, they're buffalo. At first I thought I'd sized wrong as it was hellish to get my foot in and when I did have them on they were crushing. After a half dozen wears they've stretched to a perfect fit.

    The double zips make putting them on easier than any of the single zip boots I have.

    Yoshi's Island tier.

    I don't have the double zip atm. Sold the AW13 version (didn't really love the leather). I do have new SS14 angled back zip w/ the SS14 double zip incoming plus a slew of other SS14 A1923 goodies.

    If anybody is interested, I will have a SS14 blazer in sz48; which will be most likely too small for me; will fit a 46- BN.
