you're really balling out if you can dog out a $400 pair of sneakers in the snow.

It's normal when snow is everywhere about 3 to 4 months in a year

Just curious that's all.

Yes, and also BBall (High top > Snow).

 

I would say you get cold very quickly in achilles without winter socks.

 

Rubber sole and leather is quite good against snow, but don't forget when coming home dry the outside of the shoes with a cloth and put some newspapper and shoetree to dry the inside.

 

However if it's really cold outside, I would recommend shoes with warn lining.

 

Little picture of the BBall to give you an idea of the depth of snow you can go into without the snow going on the leather.

 

Cheers

What size do you wear? I think I saw a pair up on B&S in a 44.

I just wanted to let you know I created a Pinterest Board with the list of the Common Projects FW 12-13 available.

http://pinterest.com/olivier/common-projects-fw-12-13/

I hope it is the most complete possible, with commentary for each model if New model / New Style / New color.
I may update it if I see new models

Please feel free to correct me if you can see any mistake or ping me if you see something missing

Happy to join this thread.

Cheers

Kinda random, but I think the Bball Hi already had the contrast lining before this year. My white pair from maybe two seasons ago does, anyway, and the cut looks similar.

Generally a 45...does the BB fit larger than the achilles?

just like most sneakers, you'll ruin them in the snow

Not too sure about that..I have a pair of mall brand sneakers that survived winter fairly easily..and a lot of people wear Chucks (canvas) here in Canada during the winter LOL

 

But yea, definitely finding some boots for winter.

I wear 46 in CP Vintage Achilles, CP 5hole and Svensson's. but my Bball highs are a size 45. the outersole on the Bball highs is the same (32 cm) as my Vintage Achilles. So I'd say they fit bigger; they are kinda narrow though.

Seems nobody picked them up in white anyways frown.gif
post #1302 of 1634

Yes you're totally right.

 

since its reboots I think in FW 11/12, the BBall have now contrast lining and a slightly new cut (if you look closely, the distance between the two line of stitches has been slightly reduced).

My point is the BBall are wrongly named

They are called BBall vintage, I guess because at the time it was re-introduction of the model.

 

However in the CP nomenclature, vintage refers to a bi-tone (or three tone for last season achilles vintage summer edition) model with suede leather.

 

Leather contrasted lining and contrasted rubber sole are the characteristics of Premium model.

 

Therefore the BBal should be called BBall Premium and not Vintage.

If you take care of them properly (using waterproof cream, and also dry same the moment you get home with a cloth for the outside, newspaper before shoetree for the outside), they will be ok and see numerous of winter.

 

However please remind that they are made of leather and therefor humidity are not their best friends.

 

I would recommend however put some winter socks, and wear mid or high CPs.

 

However the sole is fat enough to protect the leather while walking in a snow.

 

Please find below a picture with BBall (however same sole than achilles) to give you an idea of the depth of the snow
