Just to add my experience with sizing of the Achilles. I'm a size 10 in most major sneaker brands, and all charts and advice I've read suggested that I should get a size 43 in the Achilles, but that size is huge on me. 42 is the size that works for me, length is perfect, but the width is a little tight. I assume they will stretch over time.
hey guys need a little bit of advice
i bought the BBall Low in Blue off ssense and noticed there were several defects on the left shoe.
The rubber along the midsole seems to have been torn off in those parts. I contacted customer service and they offered a 10% refund.
Should i take it or return it? Total price comes up to 240 shipped after the refund which is a very good price, but for a damaged item i'm not so sure..
It depends on the colourway, I guess. They're certainly less 'sleek' than Achilles, as they're wider, but depends what look you're going for.
Jeans are rolled there because I had a pretty rubbish alteration done on them and the hem is not great, and didn't get them tapered enough to be worn normally. I wear those shoes with other jeans normally though, uncuffed, and they still look good, but I think a big part of that is the light suede, which makes them easy to wear like white sneakers.
Don't get any waxed suede ones though, that's what those are and the leather doesn't feel as nice as some burgundy normal suede ones that I also have from them.
But then again, not everyone absentmindedly strokes their shoes...
