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,

    I've heard that, I watch a lot of sneaker videos on YouTube (not those idiotic vlogging ones).

    If a pair of '84 Jordan 1s are regularly worn they'll survive, but yeah. If a shoe is stored then worn they'd fall apart.
    Nike Dunks and blazers are my favourite sneakers, and I'm trying to find original pairs of both from the 70s/80s (good luck, right?)

    Also in the market for (all UK9) grape 5s; white and black, infrared, carmine and maroon 6s. bred, royal, shattered backboard, all black/gum 1s.

    never heard of this, but was too well made to leave behind, especially how mint and cheap it was.
    Guess it was a good call. Thought of Spoos kop first, ask questions later on this one.

    Saw a bunch of these types in one store, like someone had been fooled by each knock off name.

    A really good fake?
    Did hermes change their construction method?
    No loop, no distict inner fold, non matching tip...
    Otherwise looks and feels legit

    Thoughts?
    If fake, the fakers are getting good

    Fake for the reasons I listed, or was there another red flag?
