    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.

    Do you not like the brass eyelets? I can be persuaded to go without if everyone agrees. I think the brass eyelets give those shoes an extra pop.

    given the casual nature of the welt I think the brass eyelets make a ton of sense

    I strongly prefer the brass eyelets and 4497 last.
    Not deal killers though.

    I just want to let you know that I will not be able to fulfill my part of this MTO deal regarding the deposit before the 11th of December. I have a ten days vacation coming up at the end of November and that anual trip abroad is when I do all my christmas shopping. So no funds for a new pair of shoes before I get my December sallary.

    If you get enuff pepole interested before I can get on board this MTO on the 11th, please don't wait for me :)

    ravn,
    Richard said he doesn't always require a deposit on MTO orders. If you are a regular customer, a deposit may not be required. Have you bought anything from Shoe Healer before?

    Yes, I'am a regular customer and I guess Richard might not requiere a deposit, but I just ordered a pair of MTO and I wish to fulfill that order before I ask Shoe Healer if I can wait a few weeks with a deposit. Sorry, but that's the way I prefer to handle this MTO regarding payment :)

    I believe the 4497s last is one whole size larger than your normal size - 8 UK = 9 US. The width is a liitle wide, probably like an E.
    Welcome aboard!

    That looks like a killer shoe, Alex. How is the sizing since I know we are the same size.

    Thanks, tifosi! I'm a UK 7.5 on the 4497s, so I think you'd be a 7.5 too. Thinking of joining us? :)

    I like brass eyelets, but in case of this shoes, I think that a brown eyelets is more better.
