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,

    Google images is showing up a bunch of loafers with totally disparate elements--high vamp, low vamp; leather sole, rubber sole; built up heel, flat. All they seem to have in common is moccasin closures for the toe:

    I think it is generally a high smooth vamp and moc toe with little detailing.

    They all have no strap across the instep.

    One of my favorite shoe styles. Martegani has what's imo the best version of them. My next shoe purchase will probably be one in shell through Ron. Lined or unlined? Still not sure. They'd replace my old LL Bean camp mocs, or allow them to survive another 20 yrs.

    I have a pair in scotch grain shell from Ron. It's my first pair of Venetian loafers. I like them a lot.

    Venetians wore velvet shoes...I'm informing you here so that you don't start a thread about it.
