What do you think about these shoes? Good or not? And what alternatives are there? I have a budget of 350 €

They look "blobby" to me. I don't think that I would buy them at any price, let alone that price.

They look chunky and I don't like the squared off ends on the strap. I don't have any personal experiences with these shoes, so I don't know about quality. These are the ones that I've found at the same price point that look better:

 

AE Neumora's - http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF4203_1_40000000001_-1

I have the Neumora...highly recommend. The HY is better than that first shoe, but I like the Neumora more.

I don't like the looks of the AE at all. Go for the HY

How about a Meermin Double Monk? Good value for the price, though there'll be a wait time to receive them.

Lot's of positive reviews by fellow SF-ers for the pair as well.

Crockett & Jones Lowndes is just a bit above your price range, and for around 50€ more you could get the Alfred Sargent Ramsey, both of which are much nicer shoes:

Paul Stuart has a nice one too, although I don't remember who makes it:
