Braun Hamburg has a white CP Achilles listed that is labeled model no. 2009 instead 1528. Would anyone know what is the difference? Thanks!

that's just bizarre. Those look like standard white achilles. The last pic even has the right code eh.gif

These are the ultra rare "2009" edition.

@ike_hiking_boots Meaning...? What is the difference compared to the standard model?

Thanks!

Would I take the same size in Retro lows as Tournament highs? I'm a 45 in Retros, but quite certain I'd be a 46 in Achilles lows.

Anyone successfully replaced the crepe sole on CP Chelsea boots? Is it an expensive process?
post #1074 of 1164
Replaced it with what? Another crepe?
I have an old pair that needs resoling I just don't know if I want another crepe or if I want to put a lug sole on them.
A friend mine bought them and had the crepe replaced with vibram commando sole before he even wore them and iirc it was close to $150. He told me they left a few mil of the crepe and "hardened it" before attaching the vibram. Whatever that means.

Yes I was referring to another crepe - I'm not too familiar with the capabilities of a cobbler, so I didn't know that switching out to another sole (lug) is a possibility. That would be pretty cool though.

$150 is costly, however!

This is after one or two wears and a few km of walking.

I think I should get a heel or topy put on.

I think you'll be ok. I have a pair of derbies I was considering topying cuz of the quick wear I noticed on the heel but I never did. Turns out initially the wear is heavy but the crepe doesnt fall off in chunks too much, it just compresses, so after a certain amount of time you don't see as much wear progression as initially. Unless the crepe is substantially less dense on those (havn't had a chance to handle a pair myself :/) i wouldn't worry about it.

Anyone know where i can purchase the tournament high-tops in black or waxed black in a 43?  Seemed to be sold out everywhere...

That's great input, thanks very much.

What's the general consensus on CP slip ons? I'm considering buying a pair, but not sure how much I'd wear them/how versatile they are (in comparison to achilles).
