not really a bargain since you'll end up paying $50 in customs fees.

I discussed this with Desiree from Norse via email and they adjusted the price on the forms so no custom fees. Believe me I learned the hard way about customs awhile back when I ordered some John Lobbs from England and got hit with a $100 fee

A word of warning to those planning on kopping from Norse Store:

Usually, most sites equate US 10 with EU 43 ... etc etc

I ordered a 10 from them and thought I was getting a 43, but got a 44 instead. To their credit, they have a 'sizing chart', I just assumed 10 would be 43. Sad thing is, I only looked at the shoe size after walking around in them a bit outdoors and getting the sole dirty ...

I can confirm this as I ordered a us 11 from them and got a 45 which is what I needed.

is the middle pair the current ss12 off white summer achilles? is it that grey in person?
post #1057 of 1633
They are more of a bone/beige color when new but yea after a while they look greyish specially because of the whiter side panels.
post #1058 of 1633
The middle pair is the off white perforated from s/s2012. My pics are a little dark but they are definitely more bone than anything.

The pictures don't look that great because it's washed out and taken at eye level, but it looks pretty good in person. The leather is really soft/nice and it is stitched, and made in Italy. CK Collection is the runway line. There's a few sizes left.

It looks much worse in the pictures than it actually is. In person they look pretty nice (also keep in mind the angle that the pics are taken at versus how you would view them)

hello fellow SF members, 

 

Looking to purchase my very first pair of cp vintage lows. If I normally wear size 9-9.5 in regular sneakers, what size would be appropriate for me in EU? 41? 42?

post #1064 of 1633

41. I wear a US10 and 42 fits me well.

I definitely think you should go 42. I'm the same size as you and wear 42...I can wear 41, but they're tight.
