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,

    Quick question to F-last shoe owners. What's the difference in fit between the F last and U last? With the U last, my heel slips ever so slightly due to the slightly too large instep. I'm wondering if the F last will solve my problems.

    F last is wider and in my experience, a low instep. U is the opposite in traits, narrower, higher instep.

    Total damage was five pairs of shoes and two belts in about 60 minutes. Dropped almost half a million forints. Laszlo was pretty excited, but not half as excited as we were.

    Even the Vass shoe trees are distinctive. I have but one pair of Vass shoes, and always, I am impressed by the fact that the shoe tree, as well as the shoe, makes a statement. These are lovely photos.

    I don't know. I simply asked and was told no problem. I didn't know that there was another sick mind on SF who would want to order this frankenshoe... [​IMG]
