Awesome!!

These look fabulous. I can see what the leather looks like, but how does it compare to CC or or other leathers you own in regards to feel, thickness, and texture?

I can't wait for my DG70 Arran MTO, I can take some last comparison pics then. The GG06 will join at the end of the year to complete my Arran collection, my own personal One Shoe... icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Sweet!!!

Keep them? Or I need an wider shoe?





Are these St. James' vintage cherry

Yes

That color in the wide is gorgeous. I have been debating them in the vintage cherry and was afraid they would be more cherry. In regards to the fitting of the shoes I am no expert however I found this in the style forum...

If the shoe fits...keep it?  That spacing doesn't too far out of the ordinary, and the heel area doesn't seem to be bowing out (when that happens, it's a sign for me that the shoe is too small/narrow).  If you're not standing in those pics, then maybe stand and see what happens. If there is no bowing or heel slip and your ball feels like it's in the right place, then why not keep it?

@rydenfan - that kudu looks fantastic. Nice pickup.

I may just be a slow convert to kudu and mountain ram, just in time for stock to run out. Yes sir! Enjoy your new kicks.

Here is standing but I didn't tighten the laces a lot when I first tried them on. Ignore the jeans, was lazy to take them off before trying on the shoes.

That separation seems more pronounced.  But it looks like it fits fine around the heel (I'm no expert, there are others with far more experience with G&G than me)?  If it feels fine, I guess I would keep it?  But I wouldn't be too enthusiastic with that kind of separation.  I can't tell form your posts whether you have not tightened the laces in any of those pictures.

In those photos standing, I did not lace them up completely, it was more of a loose fit. The first ones are the ones were I tightened them up. The feet do hurt after wearing them for a couple of hours. That's why I'm not sure.

Hello gents,

Would you guys mind suggesting an Enzo bonafeand Carmina last and size for me. Me feet have narrow heels but a wide forefoot. However, they are not very voluminous. For reference, I measure an 8.5d(right foot) and 8.5e(left foot) on the brannock device. I wear a 41F on vass p2 with very thin socks. However, I think i will order G width for my left foot the next time around. I also have a pair of Carmina Detroit last shoes in EE width on the size 7.5 and they are not wide enough for my left feet as they pinch my pinky toe. They are a little loose at the arch of the foot though. Viberg 110 last in size 8 are a great fit for the forefoot but too wide at the heels :s

Thanks!
