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.

    Been eyeing the EG Dover for some time now, but I don't think I can justify a $1300 shoe. :D

    Let's see some other nice split toe shoes. I'll start:

    There is no substitute, you will just have to pay whatever the ransom Edward Green requires.

    I realize that I'm posting a picture of a shoe that's no less expensive than the EGs, but I've always been partial to The Hove in the fantasy land that is my brain.

    I think I love how asymmetrical it is, which is odd for me.

    I have never really considered split toes before but I may just have to throw down for a pair of these Bontoni's on the right.

    I almost posted a cellphone pic of the AE Delrays that I'm wearing today, but then I was shamed by my desire for those Alfred Sargents ...

    I have two pairs, the brand it's not the most liked here on SF, but I bought them a long time ago, before registering on the forum.

    Khaki's of Carmel has two or three styles of split toe loafers from EG. You can't drag pics off the website but I found this:

    Some splits are too long in the toe and some are too short. I think Bontoni nailed it on this one.
