You might have to wait a few more months. I think they just started using the new design for orders just this month.

Maybe Nick or Leaves have a prototype they can take some pics of...?

My personal pair moving through production.

@GabrielOB also has a shot from the flagship.

Looks pretty great, better balance IMO.

See this picture for a comparison of the old St James II (pictured in Vintage Cherry) and the new St James II in Vintage Rioja. The differences are in the vamp and heel counter where this new model is based on an early bespoke shoe.

They should have just called that St.James III and problem solved. It would have given a people an excuse to collect all three shog[1].gif
For the record I only have St. James

They actually changed both their St James (no peeked heel counter) and St James II (with peeked heel counter) for technical reasons in the production. I believe that it was the vamp area and U cap which needed to be adjusted but I think it changed to the better smile.gif

Wow I like the new ones a lot. Still like the old ones though haha. Guess I'll have to buy one of the new.

New St. James details look great honestly. They added some great lines and sweeps, works nicely with the slightly reduced negative space.

Damn, now I want one...

The G&G factory must have some of the best heeled workers imaginable.  Looks like he's wearing a St. James Vintage Rioja himself!  Or is that the OP in the photo?

i want the new st. james too.

 

i am thinking something lighter colored for spring/summer use.

 

though i am still tempted by a fox suede too.

 

i hate shoes....
