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.

    its normal wear. I have the same problem on shoes that the toe box arn't raised/curves up.

    But I sunken toe plate nearly all my shoes - because I like the way they look.

    I have flush toe-plates installed before ever taking delivery of a pair of shoes as my gait wears down the toes within minutes...I have never noticed any clicking sound when walking and our building is all marble floors and never had an issue with slipping on any surface...these two issues seem to be common complaints but I have experienced neither.

    That shoe looks like a copy of the RL Darlton.

    You won't buy leather soled shoes but you'd wear dinner pumps? Interesting...

    I'd tap that. Well, both, actually.

    Seriously, perhaps changing your gait is an option, though I'd imagine that would be quite difficult as an adult. I see that as akin to removing the all-too-frequent usage of "um" or "like" in many overheard conversations.

    I have the same issue with only thick soled shoes like RL Marlows. Once they are broken in they stop wearing like that. I actually find that it helps the shoe roll better. In other words, it is perfectly normal.
