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.

    i checked some of my brogues, although derbies, they don't have it. some makers, mostly bespoke, have just a small stitch at the bottom, which adds to the charm imo.

    I use flush metal toe plates on a lot of my shoes and they are silent.

    In addition to the uppers, the heal stacks are especially lovely, each showing their own personality and hand craftsmanship. I especially like the angled shape of the Maftei.

    it's refreshing to see some interest for the craft and not to derail this thread, i'm not sure, if everyone is aware of this thread, which covers the austro-hungarian spectrum.

    My left is longer than my right and this particular pair just rubs against my left big toe a bunch unfortunately. Should fit a standard US 10.5 D pretty well.

    thanks, they are, indeed. i'll do it in the austro hungarian thread. imo, this is a place, where we can talk, discuss and exchange our experiences and anecdotes.

    hope to see you there.

    This pair passed the comfort test. I walked miles and miles in NYC (I don't have to walk much where I live). I wear them during the morning and afternoon for 3 out of 5 days and they felt great. They came back a little rough up :)

    They are serving their purpose well then. A little roughed up now and then is a good thing for a pair of rugged shell shoes. Treat 'em bad, REAL bad!

    Those shoes are going to last pretty much forever. Clean them up well between sessions of abuse and they will be brilliant in a couple of years.
