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.

    Insole? Or you mean sock lining?

    Rubber cement or shoe goo will do.

    Apologies - meant sockliner. Does shoe goo work for that purpose?

    I have used on some with no issues. Just be patient and spread the glue uniformly and let it dry for 24 hours.

    That S last is off. You're right, it looks better than a top down view but vass went in the wrong direction with S last imo

    The toe design could be a little different, but the shape of the instep and arch into the vamp area looks promising (at least shoe to right in photo).

    The S last looks way too long. The 'English' style they're going for is much shorter, looking at what G&G, C&J, and AS make.

    Cross-post from the NMWA thread.

    The angle of the Ascot photo seems to accentuate the length...I'll reserve judgment on U vs. S until seeing some side-by-side (and ideally real-life rather than staged) photos of the two.

    Too bad that the perspective and lens used for taking this photo really distorts all the proportions. Can't really tell much from it unfortunately...

    However, in about one week you'll see pictures of U and S together since we're having them both at our trunk show in Stockholm. [​IMG]

    Yeah, looks pretty elongated. But as stated above, the shot probably enhances this, since Ascot always takes photos up close with the camera which makes the image distorted (Classic photography mistake, with standard camera lenses like 18/55mm you should step away from the object and zoom in to get the correct perspective).

    I like the U last...

    Received these yesterday (part of the group buy organized by arahat). Pics aren't the best...

    ^^^ I love the U last - beautiful makeup pinkpanther. Black bals don't need to be boring.

    I am so over summer. P2 longwings from NMWA. I woldn't call the P2 svelte, but it has nice lines and isn't nearly as stout-looking or clunky as I feared. I will defintiely investigate a casual shoe on this last, but will probably size down by a half. These are a roomy fit, which is fine by me as I can't stand a close-fitting tall boot and I will have room for slightly thicker socks in the cold weather. Once I get 'em Topied, I'm ready to rock.

    NMWA needs to improve their photos, I feel like I'm seeing these boots for the first time here. Amazing photos!
