1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    EG Galway, edwardian, 202 last, double leather sole=amazing

    They are all sharp but this one, IMO, hands down champ. I can not say why as all the damage in this thread rocks but those are stunning. Perfect coloring I think and, as always, nice damage Mr. Portnoy.

    The Brooklands looks amazing. Without a doubt it's my favorite boot. Enjoy!

    Nice to see more boots in this thread. Some nice additions, Andrew.

    Will post an image of the sole later Speed. As for fit, in my experience, the 8000 is similar to the 888 or the C&J 337.

    I'm often an outlier on fit, but I size down a full size in the 8000 and a half size in the 888.

    Your shoe collection is simply mind-boggling.

    You should put them in a gallery and charge entry fees for viewing. You might even recoup your costs.... now there's a business model! [​IMG]


    hmph, I'm still waiting for the youtube video tour. [​IMG]

    I love the Lobb boots, I think they so elegent and really stand out in a good way which cannot be said for some of Lobb's looks.

    I think most of us would enjoy seening your actual rotation after some wear. [​IMG] I have been wondering if you wear shoes by season, weather, afternoon/midday/evening. You certainly have the collection [​IMG]

    When you buy more shoes than there are days in the week, you must change them at some point mid-day, right?

    I agree with HF; I'd pay $20 to take a tour of the shoe closet. Love the first pair of JLP boots, especially.

    Aportnoy, you simply must give us (at least one) group shot of all these incredible shoes. I am quite curious how you store/display your collection.
