did you get your achilles size? or do they run big/small?

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. puzzled.gif

darn it! not helping me pull the trigger LOL.

thank you kid nickels.

anyone else?

sorry Frenchy... I ordered them once a size too large (44 and returned) b/c I knew 43 in Achilles were too small for me... but turns out the shell toes were fine. FYI... i believe the ankle opening/area is cut a bit roomy, at least for me. They fit well in the toe and foot bed but are still slightly large around the ankle. Hope that "helps" LOL

so you saying that about the 44's that they fit good in the foot and toe but loose in the ankle or speaking of 43's

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.

Do they make the achilles low in black with white soles? Can't seem to find a pair...

I have these, they have a cap toe, but are my favorite CP's I own.

They have been made before, but not recently

Bah, no wonder. Any good alternatives? Have too many captoes, but thanks for the suggestion Spence!

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.

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 ! :)



Hello,

 

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?

 

Regards

What do you (or anyone else) wear the all black mids with? Have any fit pics? Mine are just sitting in my closet.

I want these but I promised myself I'm not dropping $300+ on sneakers anymore.
