solid imo. the holes on the perfs from this season seem really large. i feel like in previous seasons they were more subtle.

why don't you try the best of both worlds that is the white mesh? look pretty slick to me.

@Qudi

I can't wait for them to arrive. I believe the online pics don't do a justice and they'll look and feel more awesome in hands.

What's the difference between these two vintage highs:

http://www.endclothing.co.uk/common-projects-original-vintage-high-201442.html

http://www.endclothing.com/brands/common-projects/common-projects-original-vintage-high-201443.html



Former is model 1661, latter is 1704.

Is it just a matter of the sole being different colors? Though it looks like the lighting was a lot brighter in the first link...

they just arrived and they're exactly like in these pics, really: http://www.novoidplus.com/shop/common-projects-achilles-mesh-low-black-p-6540.html?language=en

nothing particularly noteworthy, just a pair of nice summer/casual shoes. it's a matter of preference but I replaced the laces with white ones and they look much more interesting. out of the box they're rather boring tbh.

Maybe they don't, but I heard all you have to do is email them and ask. Otherwise, still ~$328 shipped, which is still pretty good.

They do. You have to request it, or have an account and have them add it.

I too copped these and they've become a favorite already. Really appreciate the muted black suede.  I'm not sure what the mesh fabric is doing though, it feels like there's more circulation, but I'm not sure that ain't placebo effect..

thanks guys.

by the way, anyone knows if the mid blacks run a bit larger than the achilles suede lows? I wear 43 in my vintage and mesh and I wonder if I can fit into mid blacks 42.

For what it's worth I'm the same size (44) in all my CPs, but they are all padded variety (achilles low, mid, bball hi)
