I think they run big (or slightly narrow in the toe box?) for me... got 43 in shell toe highs but 44 in Achilles.... i dunno.
Common Projects F/W 11-12 - Page 32
sorry.... I got 43's in the highs.... good foot fit; a bit larger around the ankle, but went to 44's in Achilles... not sure if anyone else has had similar findings.
Ahh too bad, I wear mine more than any other of my CP's. Looks like Kid Nickles posted a good option. Not sure if you can find'em though. Maybe we'll see some pop up in S/S 12.
I bought a pair of Achilles "Premium" a few days ago.
Well, I saw the model only on the web, in Très Bien Shop, and it looked superb !
Finally... I was disapointed. The sneakers looks so big on foot, not very nice... only the profile is fine for me. Anyway, I send back the pair and I will be refund.
Today I tried a simple Achilles model and... I find it far better ! :)
Pics of the Premium model I took :

See ? The profile is perfect but from above...
Well, may be it's me... I am little strange sometimes, about sneakers... Anyway I prefer the normal Achilles !
It was my modest review, hope it can help ! :)
Did you take the same size for the original achilles?
Do they fit the same as the premium?
If I am OK with 41 original achilles should I go the same for the premium ones?
Here's my CP collection:
Training Boot (olive/leather), BBall (white/leather), Tournament (black/canvas), Achilles Mid (black/leather), Desert Boot (tan/suede), Tournament Velcro (white/perforated leather) and not pictured; Achilles Low (grey/leather). All size 45 and all fit exactly the same. Haven't had a chance to try on the washed versions though. Has anyone got a pair of the grey suede BBalls?
What do you (or anyone else) wear the all black mids with? Have any fit pics? Mine are just sitting in my closet.
