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,

    main reason is they buy up the old stock etc from these companies before they go bust, also another reason Japanese enjoy these things, were as her just look around you, 90% of people are in croc's or flip flops

    perhaps the main reason is people in general are not wearing leather soled shoes as much not like in the good old days
