Hey, those look familiar.  Actually, I've been too lazy to ebay them, yet.  Grenson Masterpiece, size 7D if anyone's interested... The elegant C&J Weymouths are another good example of wholecut medallions. dan

Interesting - don't know if have ever seen a shoe where the medallion is placed like on the Grenson. It is 'up-side down' compared to others.

A wholecut has the upper cut from one piece of leather - you'll notice that the shoes displayed have only one seam, at the back of the heel. A cool variation is a wholecut where the leather wraps around the back of the heel and the seam/overlap is located at the (in)side of heel area in back.

here's a completely different, but shoe-related question: lasts.....i never look at the last number, but are last numbers universal over all shoes? like if i have a pair of gravatis that fit me perfectly would that last be "transferrable" to a mantellassi or lobb or kiton etc?

very unlikely, i would think. Edit: in the case it does, it probably means one of the companies is making the shoes for the other company. (i.e., the last information for the USA made brooks brothers probably is transferrable to the Alden shoes, but Alden is the manufacturer of those brooks brothers shoes).

No, each maker has their own last numbers, and they are not always noted on the shoe.
