Eton, what is your shoe size?

post #9392 of 12449
Pretty consistently sz9 in CCP and sz43 in all Augusta.

Shame he's gone for a bulbous toe on the TZ1. Prefer the horse double zip that's coming in ss14
post #9394 of 12449

 We got same size, dude. Do you normally sell your stuff here or sz/sufu?

+1. I'm sold on the horse double zip. I think the Kudu spiral zip coming SS14 has a flatter toe box too.
post #9396 of 12449
I sell mostly on sz

I am curious is the lining between the sole and the reverse leather part made out of leather or rubber? see pic for what i mean: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
and where did you get them?

i like em...

Question people that owned a1923/ma+/ccp boots, is the leather on a1923/ma+as thick as ccp (lined)? I find that the a1923 back zip i have is just as thick but have seen some other models that weren't.
post #9398 of 12449
Yes that part is thick rubber.

FYI I also own the first iteration of these (white sole on black leather) for yrs. As long as you vibram them every year, they last as long as any work boot.

Re your question re leather thickness, it all depends obviously on the type of leather.
I find when simone uses horse (I own Augusta horse derbies, horse workboots, new horse sneakers) it is thicker and stiffer than CCP. The leather on my Augusta workboots and derbys (pics earlier in this thread) is far thicker than the lined bison or horse tornadoes from CCP.
Ummmm. Maybe not thicker...but certainly stiffer. The only leathers I've been let down by are kangaroo from CCP and the recent batch of buffalo from Augusta.

The sneaks were bought from PnP on Friday (they came into the shop on Friday), but I think they sold out of most sizes immediately.

Eton, if you had to choose between augusta sneakers and CCP drip sneakers - which one would you go for?

thanks for the insight... i find my ccp horse tornados to be thicker than my calf a1923 but the a1923 are a bit stiffer. i assume simone has been changing up his technique because i tried on the a1923 horse side zips at archive and they were super stiff but thickness was about same as my ccp.

btw i am also interested how you feel about a1923 sneaks vs ccp drips...
post #9401 of 12449
I've owned both. 100% Augusta sneakers for me, for several reasons.
1) the CCP are way too 'statement' for me. I loved 'owning' them but I found when I wanted to wear sneakers i'd reach for my Augusta sneaks, and when I wanted boots, I'd reach for workboots or tornadoes.
The dipped sole was just too much for me. It took the sneaks to a level that was 'too' edgey.

2) I don't mind paying serious $$$ for something that will last for years. Yes the Augusta sneakers are expensive, but I will get them vibramed so the soles are never damaged, and they will last for years in generally perfect condition.
The soles on the CCP wear down and are pretty much not replaceable. Plus the rubber drip eventually peels away from the leather sides and looses its colour. So IMO there is a very finite life time to the sneaks before they pretty much look completely fucked. I have a problem with that, considering the cost.
So Augusta sneaks win hands down for me.
Just my opinion.

I rarely feel self conscious in what I wear, but when I wore the CCP sneakers, I felt people were looking thinking I was a twat. The drip is pretty hardcore. Like having titanium elbows, which I also feel is way over the top.

 Thanks, I appreciate your insight.

Did you not get a high-neck recently?
post #9405 of 12449
I did indeed. Best piece I own.
Owned one in grey bison but sold it. The new one is black horse.
