St James II in vintage cherry is the GG iconic shoe, IMO. It's quite an aggressive shoe that I think works best with squared lasts (square deco, TG73 and MH71 in descending order of personal preference). That said, I have seen pictures in round deco - a friend of mine on Instagram has them - and they look good (it's pretty hard to get a GG shoe that doesn't, to be fair!).Hi all,
Would like some advice please. In the process of commissioning a couple of GGs. One of the choice is obvious St James II vintage cherry. I am not very sure I wanted the square TG73 so considering the round deco MTO. I searched online extensively but can’t find a round deco SJII vintage cherry. MH71 is an option but when I am going for an MTO, I might as well go for the deco as I thought it will be a little more sharper. Lack of pictures make me think whether people didn’t think it looked good on round deco compared to MH71 (there are quite a few pictures for these) and hence they went with TG73, MH71 or square deco. Any thoughts are really appreciated.
You can't really go wrong either way, but if you were going to do one St James II, the square deco version is what I'd choose personally. I think the captoe style looks a bit better with the square. I have both square and round decos, which you can see on my Instagram if it helps.
