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),

I could probably get the GGs from a friend for around $600 (new) with shoe trees also, but wasn't sure. I like the Carmina Adelaide Calf design also.

That's why I asked smile.gif

Carmina is very good also no doubt, icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif but for that price I would pick that up from your friend & enjoy them :slayer

Lets for a moment take the matter of fit out of the equation. If you have to ask then I would say there's a good chance the G&G St James II really isn't for you. If you don't appreciate the differences and most of them are visual, then why spend that much more money.

If that's your plan there is probably a more appropriate thread for you to be posted these questions in than this one.

If you can get GGs for $600 get two pairs.
