    I start to love norwegian-style derby (aca blucher) shoes, decided that I missed a pair.
    I don't like the rough seams, prefering this style below.
    Next 2 weeks I'll have a chance to try the fit of the lasts during my Europe cartrip.

    EG Dover, 606 last, HAF, circa 1200usd

    G&G Hove, TG73, single leather sole, circa 1000usd

    or maybe try shoes from another league, still looks and fits well and are cheaper (why not to save few bucks?):

    C&J Clarendon in shell (handgrade), 358 last, single leather sole, circa 800usd
    [​IMG]
    Dinckelacker, Luzern last, double leather sole, circ 700usd suede / 890usd cordovan

    Or maybe you don't like all and can give me better advise?
