The gray ones from that season did it too.

As far as i'm concerned, I plan to keep my cp's for a long time so I wear em occasionnally. Any pair of shoes that you wear everyday are going to end up destroyed. simple. I guess I can't afford cp's like I can affort beaters shoes (vans era, boat shoes, etc) in the 65-140$ range. But for 300$+ shoes...no way i'm gonna use em as every day shoes. Especially since I use public transportation, the weather is can be pretty shitty, The odor since I wear my shoes sockless, etc.
i'm might be too conservative tho. I have 500$ kitsune X quoddy mocassins that i'm scared to wear because I could get stains on em, I got dior homme sneakers shoes i've worn once in about a year for similar reasons. I like to buy nice shoes but I end up wearing my vans era 355 days/year lol.
Please be sure to consider the color, due to the fact that it is a less bright pair than Internet pictures seem to show
Below a pic I took next to CP achilles White (left) VS CP achilles premium Off White (right)
I have the same problem too, hoping it stretches a bit.
