found the post. i misremembered, he also only pointed out the heel cap.
here it is.
I'd echo that.
"Heel cap" was the terminology I was looking for
I only intend to wear my G&G's on special situations as I have about 15 other pairs of shoes as well so I'm thinking the Cherry makes sense. It is also by far my favorite G&G model so itd be hard to justify the price for something else. I have been looking at the AS Moore's more and more though as well. A good 3-400 dollars cheaper...
The AS Moore are a good alternative.
The G&G St. James is the prettiest shoe I own by a county mile (although I do own some howlers so take that statement with a pinch of salt).
if you are wearing G&Gs, it IS a special occasion.
Think Nick refers to it as "Heel Counter" http://www.bespoke-england.co.uk/products/st-james-ii-vintage-cherry-calf-tg73-e-medium-fit
Sorry double post
I rather like "Heel Scab"...which I've heard (and used) on a number of occasions esp. with regard to boots. I suspect, "counter" is close to the correct term, however.
never heard of "heel scab" but i like it!
First G&G's for me.
Fantastic, what kind of sole is that? Doesn't look like Deco to me.
EXCELLENT choice. enjoy them.
Looks bespoke to me.
Then again may be TG73.
