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.

    I've seen them at my local Nordstrom Rack. I think they were going for $220.

    Fritzl, I realize that "brevity is a great charm of eloquence", but you're not giving me much to go on here.

    Is it the lack of faux seams around the broguing that you feel makes this a less than good example of a blind brogue, or is there some other aspect you feel is missing (and if so could you state what that is). I appreciate your knowledge of shoes, and hope to learn more from you.

    Those are not a good looking shoe IMO especially the high/proud stitching. It's like everything is going wrong in the manufacture.


    Meraviglioso!

    hey, don't worry too much about an single opinion.

    imo, this is not a question of learning, just preference. i'm not entirely sold on the last shape for a wholecut. besides, they are not among my favorite styles, each to his own.

    i like the medaillon but not the wing tip line, which ends nowhere. also i prefer a heel brogueing opposite to the naked "as.". the throat line is a bit too theatralic, either.

    normally, i'm not very picky with details but when it comes to brogueing, i'm quite conservative. that's all.

    Didn't know we wear the same size. :)

    they are actually half a size larger than what I typically wear; however, the extra toe length is very slight. I am very impressed with the last used for the boot. It is sleek and has enough volume in the ball and toe area which makes it very comfortable.
