 I'm not sure if the CT shoes are rebranded Loake 1880s but if they are, you can get them cheaper at Pediwear as they offer VAT deduction and either free shoe trees or free shipping on a pair of regularly priced Loakes with a catalogue price of more than £150 
 Basic G&Gs are at £850 and IIRC, Edward Greens start at £670, so less than £200 difference. I'll also opt for St James II in vintage cherry. Here's the photo which caused me to fall in love with them (note they are bespoke shoes on which St James are based):

Look at the description on the outside of the shoe box. It will state whether the shoes are made of calf or polished binder
 Please be careful - don't know if this report is true: Iconic Edwards of Manchester shoe shop closes after trading for almost 200 years http://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/edwards-of-manchester-shop-closes-9339554 Quote:An iconic shop that has been selling shoes in the city centre for almost 200 years has suddenly closed.Edwards of Manchester in the Barton Arcade has been supplying made-to-measure shoes to clients since 1830.But the...
Very nice indeed. Thanks Nutcracker for making the video and posting the link. My only issue with the video is that Hasegawa-San was brushing a brand new pair of shoes and so I can't really appreciate the difference. Maybe I should watch it on a computer monitor instead of my iPhone.
 I like the design of St James II more.  The counter of the Saint Crispin's Adelaides somehow looks a bit off to me. But then you get hand welted shoes for a slightly cheaper price at SEK9,600 vs G&G's at SEK10,240 (both ex-VAT with the G&G price adjusted to include G&G lasted trees),  
Leaves, someone has been stealing your photos:   http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/m.html?_odkw=&_ssn=andieh123&hash=item20fc91c158&item=141676364120&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&_osacat=93427&_from=R40&_trksid=p2046732.m570.l1313.TR7.TRC2.A0.H0.Xedward+green.TRS0&_nkw=edward+green&_sacat=93427
I hate to disappoint you but the soles do not look like they are original ones but rather a half sole job. The stitches on the right side of the sole are quite worn down already and probably will come loose with the grinding required for the Topy.
