Its the G&G St James II. I was too lazy to find a generic tree before taking the pic.
Mine as well with some friendly punchcap adelaides.     Which one has the tighter waist?  
 My Gold museum is different than these two as well! Closer to the lighter shade. I am digging the darker shade.
 Glad to hear it. Perhaps, I am a difficult fit or have sensitive skin.No bleeding for me as well but have had blisters on my heels / big toe. Will be interesting to hear others perspective as well.

Sounds from...
 I have a 1 year old Simpson austerity brogue which still hasnt broken in!! The problem is not the instep but the heels which are uncomfortably tight. I am surprised that not many people complain about the heel on the Simpson - imo its poorly designed.
