Okay, these run large. I was scared at first when seeing how small my lows looked compared to my Nikes, but then I put them on and the fit. They are highly cushioned and very sleek.

You don't find that just leaving them to their own devices creates more cracking though? I live in central NY where there's a lot of snow and moisture and salt in the winter. I'm just wondering if the salt will just deteriorate them quicker. 

I mean, I agree they look better worn in, but there's a difference between "worn-in" and "trashed".


For those that use conditioner, can I ask what kind/brand?

Lexol works fine

Sneakers are meant to be worn and then disposed of. They're not like boots where you can resole them.

not when you're paying $300 and up. I live in NYC and when it's nasty outside, the CP's aren't worn
post #37 of 1833

What if you only paid $190? ha.


I know what you're saying though, if the weather is truly shitty I will just wear some beaters, but even when you think everything's fine you might get stuck out in snow and find yourself somewhere that hasn't been plowed/shovelled. I'm not the type of person who is just gonna throw a pair in the back of the closet for 6 months, I still want to wear them, so if there are steps that can be taken to slow down deterioration then I will take those steps.

Well then! A shoe cleaning kit may be of assistance to you.

Just buy a cleaner, brush, some cloth, conditioner and maybe one of those "invisible guards" (resistant to water and stains).

But wouldn't a 39 in CP be the best for me? I believe I have normal to narrow feet width. 



CP run slightly big, so a 39 should be perfect for you.

Thinking of getting the waxed canvas tournament highs that are on sale at the moment, but I can't decide between a 39 or 40. I wear an 8.5 in most Nikes (Flyknits & Roshes) and 40 in Zara shoes. Any advice?


Also, should I just save my money for leather CPs instead?

post #42 of 1833

I would get a 40 if your feet aren't too wide

post #43 of 1833

I think a 40 would be perfect for you. 
I forgot to respond to the guy that recommended me a 39 but I followed his advice and they turned out perfect; both size-wise and the shoe in general - my favorite shoe by far. :) 
I wear a 7.5 US in my Nike Jordan and 7.5 US as well in a pair of Adidas, so I agree with nomalas, I think a 40 would be good.

Wonder if anyone owns a pair from the Robert Geller collab...? I'm thinking of getting these but would like a heads-up on the fit/make/quality i.e. would I be right to assume that Geller provides the design and CP does the leather/stitching..etc?

post #45 of 1833

Last season fit the same as usual CP's. I assume it would be the same this season.

They are standard CP silhouette/design, As far as I know just the materials/colours are different (chosen by Geller).
