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,

    [​IMG] Not trying to poke fun at him (although, I suppose, I don't like what he's wearing)—this Bean Boot fad is like the male equivalent of Ugg boots!

    Saw this in the Kintetsu department store the other day. Forgot the manufacturer's name. EDIT: They are by Magnanni. The pair on the bottom, just out of frame, are some very nice Grensons that I haven't found a counterpart to online (i.e., at a sane price).

    Those shoes appear to have been inspired by the flounder fish.

    They are really fashion as art not an attempt at making wearable shoes, and it's probably unfair to include them in a thread like this. However, those Prada Church brogues really are an abomination - things that just should not be.

    I think I'll start silently taking pics of horrible shoes that I see on my daily commute. More of an impact that just website pics.
