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.

    yeah, brown commando / dainite sole is fine for me.

    Longwing/Golosh Boots
    Burnished Burgundy Calf
    Tongue: burgundy suede
    4444 last
    Natural flat welt
    Brown dainite/commando sole
    Brass eyelets

    Anybody else? 2 more and we can proceed and make this run.

    Yes, no austerity brogue. Full longwing action a la the Herring Froswick.

    Now the question, do we want burgundy calf:

    Or this waxy red calf?

    I vote burgandy since I have a pair of the red cavalier stows.

    Here's a picture of the Froswick for reference.

    Pardon my ignorance, what's the austerity brogue?

    Definitely burgundy, now dainite/commando sole?

    Burgundy is fine. But I vote commando Can live with Dainite, though. I already have a Burgundy AS captoe dainite boot on the way.

    What do you mean by no full lugs, though? Do you mean vibram lugs? I'm definitely thinking of just the standard English commando sole.

    Yeah, by "full lugs" I was talking about the super chunky vibram lugs.

    I'm okay with these commando soles.

    Yeah, I don't want vibram lugs on these either. Does Trickers even offer that option?

    By the way, for an added detail, do you think a red calf lining would look good?

    Do they make a brown commando sole?
    Anyway, brown or black is fine with me.

    Red calf lining is a plus.
    Brass eyelets sounds good.

    They make a brown commando sole. And brass eyelets are fine by me.

    I just got my Eatons today and I love them. I have the right size for sure, but this is a huge last. Are there any objections to using the 4497 last for this? I'm assuming that last is the same length but slightly narrower? I can wear the 4444 last, but I think I'd prefer the 4497.

    I'd prefer the 4497 too but most of the longwing boots I've seen have been on the 4444.
    I've also seen a longwing boot on the 2298 though.

    I received mine yesterday as well and they are awesome. Totally agree though, I went all the way down to a 9 from a TTS 10.5, which is my normal size. Crazy but love the boots. Thanks Rkusmant for organizing.

    Yeah, I full sized down from Barrie last. 9.5 US barrie last, I went 8.5UK 4444 last.

    I know Trickers' normal pattern for the LWB is 4444 last, but if we're doing MTO, I think we can order 4497 as well. Is the 4497 equal in length or longer?
