    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.

    I tried on the leather hunt boots and the profile on the sole is not so pronounced when worn.
    Those woven ones are sooooooooo good.
    Def would be hard to pull off though.

    I bought a new camera and thought I'd practice on some Yuketen boat shoes that I think are beautiful

    These have seen heavy wear for about 6 months and are still in awesome shape - better with age.
    They also do not stink or stick after frequent use without socks.

    The Yuketens don't start to stink like the sperry's I have had, and are examples of american artisanship.
    My pics do not necessarily do these shoes justice, but if you tried 'em you would like 'em.

    I was going to jokingly say something about made in america or union made but you came in and did it for me. (Yukuten sucks, really) Thanks.

    when i'm looking at replacements for my sperry's i often find myself eyeing quoddy over yukuten. not a big fan of the alaskan indian vibe they have going on.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Thorogood horsehide boots. Just starting to break in, about 12-15 wears. The depth and variation of color is amazing. I'm actually wondering if I should sell these, as they've always been a bit long, so let me know if you'd be interested in these for cheap. They'd be best for 10 - 10.5, maybe even a slim 11.

    Yuki Matsuda is a badass, the shoes hold up to serious abuse and get better with age. They are well made and comfortable. I love the Native American vibe, but that is in part because I am fond of my country and its history.

    IIIRD - Let us know what you decide on. I think I'm pretty set with the single, block heel, and then get a half sole put on. Also, I'm not a fan of the swing last from what I've seen.
    sure will! .... & oh, as for the swing last, i find the captoe version of the Americana to my liking__ i'm going for bulk up front w/double celastic toes.

    ^^^^what are those?[/quote]
    Looks like some custom whites boots.
    i think they're Japanese version semidress.

    That Yuketen looks like an ugly slipper glued on top of a giant pork rind.

    You mean the part where settlers killed them all and then made the rest drunkards?
