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,

    Many of them are shells in whiskey and saddle.

    I don't really see the wood peg sole that MichaelAy is referring to. What I see a half black sole like those done by EG on some of their shoes. More cosmetic than anything IMHO.

    Looks like a U last to me.

    Vox is very right about loving the New Peter, it is one gorgeous last shape.

    That last looks like it was designed for a Smurf's foot.

    I think this really highlights how the "little things" can make a big difference. It would still be a beautiful shoe if the stitching were just plain black, but the white stitches make the shoe far more striking and attractive.
